Sweet and quirky Rowan is ready to find his forever home! This adorable pup is full of sass and fun and enjoys the very basics of life. He is a medium energy pup and is perfectly happy romping around the backyard and playing with his toys in the house as his main form of exercise.

Rowan is somewhat particular and a bit of a bossy pants when it comes to other dogs. He will quickly take direction from dogs he trusts but can be quick to challenge dogs he does not like. Rowan currently lives with several other dogs of all sizes and prefers the dogs who are playful but also respectful. He really does love sharing his home with other dogs and would do best in a home with a dog of similar size (15 – 40 lbs) who is both patient and confident. Rowan loves to cuddle with the other dogs in his foster home and despite being choosy of his canine friends he would be most happy in a home with a well-matched canine companion.

Rowan is good with cats, critters and kids of any age, making him an excellent addition to a family looking for a playful and loving pup. While he is crate trained, he still struggles with potty training and cannot go longer than 3 hours without a bathroom break. However, with consistent and patient training, he is sure to make progress quickly. Rowan requires a home where someone is home more often to help with potty training and some mild separation anxiety. Rowan is also a very loud barker and will bark in his crate for the first few minutes. For this reason, a detached or country home where barking will not be an issue, is required.

Rowan is very outgoing and cuddly with people, making him the perfect companion for anyone who loves to cuddle up with their furry friend.
He has an injury to his left paw, but it is almost completely healed and should not be a cause for concern long term.
True to his roots, Rowan loves the heat but hates the cold. He would be happiest in a home with a fenced backyard where he can play and
explore to his heart’s content and where it’s okay for him to just go out for bathroom breaks on colder days.
