Meet Rowan III!

Do you want a pup who’s happy to sunbathe in the backyard with you while you read a book? Do you love a dog who likes to cuddle next to you? Do you need a work from home companion who knows it’s critical to be quiet while you’re on calls? Are you looking for a dog who is happy to go on a walk through the neighborhood and one who is equally content to binge watch movies with you? Then, Rowan is your man!

Rowan is dog friendly. If you have another dog in your life, he would love to meet them. He enjoys a good play session with a doggie friend. When playing with his senior foster sister half his size, he is always happy to let her win. He’s also content being the sole star of your attention if you don’t have a pup-sibling for him!

This kid is potty trained and crate trained! In fact, if you invite a group of friends over, this introvert’s happy spot will be in a quiet room, in his crate, with his stuffed lamb, getting some quiet time on his own. He loves that you have friends, but also loves that they are your friends, not his.

Rowan is about 3 years old and a healthy 65 lbs. His ideal home is with adults that understand he has no desire to be a patio pup. If you want to go out with friends or into the office, he will be happy to hear all about your activities when you get home.

Rowan is looking forward to a home with a backyard where he can hide from busy sidewalks but can still get in some sunbathing. He will want to be where he will not have to worry about all those new people who recognize his adorableness wanting to meet him.

When you are his person, he loves you and adores you and just wants the best for you. He is super shy so meeting him takes time, but we know Rowan is worth it. He loves to give you a hug followed by kisses and pets. This derpy, adorable, goofy boy would make the perfect addition to any couple or person’s life. Apply to adopt Rowan now!
