Rory - In Maine
Posted September 2021
Rory is a sweet boy who has been the victim of changing families. He was adopted in 2014 and now had to come back to rescue. He was re-homed with his canine sister but they weren’t getting along so he is back with us, spending time at Kompletely K9 Dog Training and Rehabilitation to get a good assessment of what he needs. As a puppy Rory was listed as a Treeing Walker Coonhound but he is quite a big guy at 72 lbs and reminds us of a St. Bernard mix. He is 7 years old and a true sweetheart.
Rory is battling an ear infection and some food sensitivity so hasn’t been able to socialize too much yet while he recovers but has done well with other dogs there. He does get car sick especially on bumpy back roads but when we transported him without feeding him first he did fine.
In his former home he did not use a crate but was in a secure doggy-proof area, he is using a crate at this time and doing fine. Rory walks well on leash but will pull when he catches a scent or distraction. He is doing well walking on leash and likes to go with a canine buddy.
Rory lived with children, but he has had the tendency to guard toys or sticks, etc from his canine sister so little kids might not be the best for him, and we don’t have cat info at this time.
Rory is friendly with new people and curious about everything. We are learning more about what his ideal home looks like and will update as we can.
If you have interest in meeting Rory or another dog in our rescue, please fill out the adoption application.
Please note: we do not have a physical facility where the dogs are housed; they are cared for in our wonderful foster network throughout Maine. It is our expectation that a potential family will meet the dog(s) in the foster setting where they are feeling safe and loved.
