Hello New Friends,
My name is Rooney and I am an 18 month old Maltese mix who is 12 pounds of love in a very cute package. While my hair is a bit wispy and is still growing back in, I’m definitely a ball of white fluff and fun who is definitely a guy on the go! Mom says I’m sweet, devoted, loving, adaptive, resilient, energetic and eager little guy who is eager to learn and to please! (Can you tell she likes me?)
I have this really cute thing I do that both Mom and Dad love to see. It goes like this: I lie on my back and wave my two front legs to get you to pet me. So you pet me… then stop. I keep on waving my legs and looking like a cute little guy who needs to be petted some more… and so you do and I’m one happy fella!
Dad says I’m very smart, TOTALLY housebroken (and that’s not typo!) In fact, I go to the door to let him and Mom know I need to go out. And they are taught me about something called a ‘puppy door’ which I mastered in no time! And when it’s night time I go quietly in to my bed and sleep soundly through the night. (If you get up I follow to make sure you’re okay, then settle back in and wait for you to awaken in the morning.)
I’m a typical young guy who is energetic and lots of fun! I’ve already discovered this thing called riding (in the car) which I LOVE a lot! Then there’s this thing called ‘walking on a leash.’ Well let me tell you that was brand new to me! My doggy foster brother showed me the way and I learned about ‘grass’ and ‘trees’ and ‘shrubs’ and more. Now I LOVE to go for walks –and LOVE to play with new friends! And speaking of love, I LOVE to give kisses – and did I mention that I LOVE everyone I meet? Well I absolutely do! Oh and please remember: I also LOVE my stuffed toys, In fact, I even like to bring them to my bed and sleep with them. That’s how much I love them! (Check out my picture with my stuffies please!
My Ideal Home:
* Someone home most of the time
* Another active, young, playful dog
* Kids over 7 experienced with young dogs
* None of those creatures called cats please!
* Had dogs as an adult
* Recent/current dog experience
* Puppy experience a plus!
* Good at giving positive reinforcement
My BFK Aunties say that I’m sweet, young, smart, and eager to find my forever “pack”! So if you are an active family or person who likes to go on walks and has another small dog who likes to play, let’s meet. I’m one of those pups called a ‘portable’. You can take me absolutely anywhere.
In the meantime I’m practicing all the things Mom has shown me, getting ready for my forever family and home!
Tail wags and cuddles,
Resilient and Radiant Rooney
