Ronan is a neutered male German shepherd who is about 8 years old. He is very people-friendly and gets along well with most large-breed female dogs. He was confiscated from a home due to neglect. He & his side-kick Keely were living outside in the back yard and were extremely thin and neglected. Fast-forward a few months, and Ronan is now back to a good weight, neutered and ready to find his forever family.
Ronan recently had a mini-vacation (a week away from the kennel in a foster home), and they reported that he was excellent in the home. He is house-trained with no accidents. He has nice manners, listens well, is not destructive, and sleeps all night in his crate without a peep. This "extremely intelligent" boy takes treats nicely and learns new commands almost instantly.
Here at the rescue kennel, Ronan loves all of the volunteers. He gets so excited when he sees them approach with the leash - his tail wags like crazy and he lets out little barks as if to say: "ME NEXT! ME NEXT!" This guy is also a water dog! He LOVES his kiddie pool and will stand inside as his human friend fills it with the hose, giving little kisses of appreciation. Ronan craves human companionship and is appreciative of every moment spent with him, whether it's being brushed, getting back rubs or just relaxing under a shady tree. He loves playing fetch, and tug toys are one of his favorites too. He'll keep bringing it back for more interaction and play. This mellow older dude was ignored for years and now wants nothing more than to enjoy the comforts of indoor living - a comfy bed, a dish filled with nutritious food and a family who will treat him like a King.
Ask about Ronan this week, you may be the perfect retirement home for him!
Ronan has been neutered, micro-chipped, de-wormed, and vaccinated. He is on Flea/Tick/HW prevention.
