In addition to the adoption fee of $400. I will require a training deposit of $150 which is fully refundable upon completion of a training course.
Roux is such a gentle soul. We've been settling into a routine and it's easy. We walk twice a day for 20 minutes. Roux doesn't chase or retrieve balls for me but did so for my 8 year old nephew. They played in the backyard and I tried the next day....he wasn't having it. We went to the dog park this week and he was great. He played for several minutes with several other dogs. He even retrieved balls for one of the Dad's throwing balls. I've left him alone for 4 hours at a time. My neighbors reassure me that he whines for a minute but retreats inside the house. He is very trustworthy in the house. I learned about his counter surfing so I don't have any temptations on my counters. He settles easily in the evenings and sleeps throughout the night. He follows me around and is extremely sweet. He will make a great family pet. Enjoys children and other dogs. He's looking for his forever home.
Foster Update #2
Roux has been with me since last weekend. He walks well on leash, is a sweet dispositioned guy and travels well in the car. He has been visiting with another volunteer this week while I had jury duty and did well with her pack. He would sit by my car in the morning just waiting to visit his group of friends. He runs around with the group but avoids putting his paws in water. Likes to watch me run after the toy or ball but doesn't feel compelled to fetch on his own. He's pretty darn trustworthy but will counter surf if there is something desirable up there. He is just such a good dog. I enjoy going for walks with him and he has enjoyed meeting neighborhood dogs. His kennel cough has cleared up and he's having an ear check this week. Any family would be fortunate to add such a great dog to their pack.

Roux is so easy on a walk and hasn’t encountered a single dog he’s had an issue with. He’d be fine with other dogs or alone but needs someone who works from home or is retired. If he had to choose a dog friend or his person, he’d for sure choose his person. Super snuggly and would love to sleep in the bed with you. Takes treats gently and has no food aggression at all. No bad behaviors, no digging, marking, chewing. Really is a love bug!
(Roo). This guy is an absolute gem. He is good with other dogs, likes to swim, has been going to dog parks regularly and is an all around "GREAT" guy. He does have a prey drive so no small furry creatures in his world. Check back while we learn more about this amazing creature...
