This week, we’d like to put another shout out for sweet Rowan. Rowan - Oregon Humane Society Rowan has been in the care of Oregon Humane since last DECEMBER. He’s our longest resident, by far, and is ready to find his forever home. He is a 4 year, 9-month-old shepard/retriever who weighs 68 lbs.
For the past few months, Rowan has been living in a foster home with one of our amazing volunteers. He lives happily with another dog and in a very quiet setting. You see, when it comes down to it, Rowan is a country dog. The sights, sounds, and fast-moving pace of city life just aren’t for him. Rowan needs to go to a home in the country, or maybe a very quiet suburb. He is a sweet but sensitive boy who loves to play. He needs to find an adult-only home with a dog-experienced person who has the time, energy, and patience to continue with his training. Rowan gets very excited and would struggle in a home with a lot of hustle and bustle or one with children. He really needs a secure fenced yard in a quiet setting where he can play with toys with you. He will notbe able to go to the dog park, and leash walks are stressful as he is reactive to cars, people, and dogs. So, until you have done some training, and he has had time to bond with you, playtime in your house and yard will help him be successful. In his previous home he lived with a cat and another dog and got along well with both. However, he can sometimes be reactive toward dogs he doesn’t know, so he’ll need to meet any potential canine companions before being adopted. As you can see in his video, Rowan enjoys playing by himself – which is perfect: you can let Rowan play alone with his toys! He knows sit, down, come, and wait and is fully housetrained. He can be left alone for 8 hours a day with no accidents.
Does Rowan look like he’s the boy for you? If so, fill out the questionnaire at the bottom of his profile and someone from Oregon Humane will call you to tell you more about it.
