Rodrick is a 45lb Lab/Weimaraner mix. Rodrick is such a sweet pal of a dog! He loves playing with his 4-legged sister, watching sports while snuggling on the couch, taking walks in the neighborhood and local parks, long car rides, and hanging out while his foster dad works on his computer. He has learned that “Sit” is a great default position and he is working on learning his name for recall as well as “Place” and “Down”.

Rodrick is an enthusiastic learner and shines as he strives to please his human friends! We do not know why Rodrick landed in the shelter, but he is still learning to be trusting of the world and of strangers. Moments of chaos or surprising appearances of unknown people are very stressful for Rodrick. While on leash he is also unsure about other dogs, bicycles, skateboards or runners.

He is working with his foster dad and a trainer to work on his reactivity and learn to trust new people and has made good progress in the past month. Rodrick is seeking a home where there is some predictability and a calm environment. He connects deeply with a few people, and needs slow introductions to new people. SVPP is working with a trainer and helping Rodrick to learn that he can be safe when the unexpected happens. Continuing training support will be provided to his adopter.

Prior to adoption, all dogs are spayed/neutered, tested for heartworm, vaccinated (including rabies, if age appropriate) and microchipped. Adoption fees for dogs: Stay up-to-date on what our dogs are up to by following us on Facebook!
