Rory - in Maine!
Most recent update: December 2016
Rory loves hugs and belly rubs. She is such a funny and happy girl, her smile can be seen in her eyes. She loves playing with other dogs big and small. She is very cautious with new people and once she trusts you she is totally loyal to you. She was having a hard time riding in vehicles at first but with practice she is doing much better, recently making a 7 hour trip to Madawaska, Maine without a problem. She is crate and house trained. She has lots of patience waiting to go outside while we are getting all of the dogs ready for our walk. She walks great on the leash and we have no problems with her on walks, I can even walk all 4 dogs by myself. She has no food aggression whatsoever She would do well in a home with another outgoing dog. She does really well going to daycare 2 to 3 times a week for continuation of her socialization with both people and other animals. She is doing well with the sit command so far.
Rory is here with us and doing awesome. Her foster siblings are two small dogs and a cat, kitten and rat.
Rory has a neighbor human friend who is about 10 years old and she did well with her. She has also met younger children and she seems to take to them very well, almost better than adults. Rory has been going to doggy day care and she is not always sure how to play with big groups of other dogs but is getting better all the timeThey made her group smaller and less rambunctious, and she has been much better.
Rory can be a little nervous at first meetings, especially with men, but she is learning to trust and that humans can be good. It's amazing how resilient dogs are!
Rory is just a love!
Rory and her three pups were rescued from the side of the road by a good samaritan. Rory and one puppy were actually crossing a busy 2 lane highway, a disaster in the making! They are safe now and the puppies have all been adopted out; Rory had to stay and get treated for heartworm disease and now she is here with us, and doing great.
Rory is great with everyone, fine with dogs and cats. While she hasn't lived with children, her caregivers think she would be fine with kids but we can get more information on this when she comes to us
Rory is around 1.5 years old and weighs around 40lbs
If you have interest in Rory or another of our sweeties please fill out the adoption application or email us at
Please note: we do not have a physical facility where the dogs are housed, they are cared for in our wonderful foster network throughout New England. It is our expectation that, once approved through the rescue, a potential family will meet the dog(s) in the foster setting where they are feeling safe and loved.
