Is your dog having too much fun? Woop, woop, Officer Rooney of the K-9 Fun Police will be arriving momentarily to stop it! Rooney is currently in NYC with Red Hook Dog Rescue. We adopt throughout the New England area. Rooney is a middle-aged Australian Cattle Dog/Chow cross who is great with cats and other dogs. In fact, she is much better as a 2nd dog so we’re looking for a home for her that already has a mellow dog in it… that she can occasionally herd, and generally stop from having too much fun. We think she’d do best in a home without kids, unless you really want your kids herded, which (as a mother of young children) I can say is a strangely appealing concept. Change is another thing Rooney isn’t big on, so she would do best in a quiet home without a ton of strangers coming through.
Our perfect home for Rooney is a retired person or couple in a suburban or rural environment, who have other pets and are perhaps looking for a companion for their existing medium to lower energy dog. Rooney is a lovely girl, extremely caring and devoted, and striking in her tan and white fluffy coat. She is medium sized (around 40lbs) and very easygoing…. she never actually gives Fun Tickets; you can always talk her down to a warning. Good cop!
