Rex 2 yr old neutered male - CO
Rex is Mr. Personality and can be a little goofball.
He (affectionately known as T-Rex) is a 2 yo neutered male. He is on the small side, weighing 48 lbs. and is fawn with a black mask.
He knows, sit, down, leave it, outside, inside, off and out. He's fantastic in the car crated. He will show interest in what you're eating but has not made any attempt to counter surf or get in your face to beg.
He is good when left loose in the house and respects the baby gates even though he can easily jump much higher than any of the gates. He's 100% housebroken. He does not destroy toys and has no resource guarding issues with toys nor food.
He's very calm and happy to do almost nothing when he's in the house. He is a Velcro dog and wants nothing more than to be near his foster mom or at least where he can see her. He absolutely loves teenage girls (see photos of him sharing a movie and popcorn with the 13 year old granddaughter).
He doesn't react to the mailman, UPS or other visitors at work. He can see them through the window but he just looks. He absolutely LOVES to retrieve – REALLY loves it. He's so much fun, he will out the ball early so that it rolls back to you.
Here is a short video of him in action: https://youtu.be/U1VSLHmJ1ms
His leash walking continues to improve. When he first came into rescue, he was a panic on the leash but his foster mom has been working with him and he will walk calmly when given 2-3 ft. of leash.
He's very wary of men and we suspect he was handled with a heavy hand prior to coming into rescue. When sudden movements are made towards him, he will drop to the ground and be submissive. His foster mom takes him to work and when there, will take treats from the guys. You can tell that he wants to be friends but just is not sure about them.
He is also afraid of running vehicles and will pull to get away from them. He is fine riding in a car but is ready to flee when walking around one that has a motor running.
T-Rex is in search of a family that can provide structure and consistency with a soft touch. He is a very sweet boy with lots to give and wants nothing more than to be by your side as your loyal companion.
