    Large, handsome boy with a soft, sweet personality.. he is a “Trooper” in the sense that he has endured adversity to find the home he was always meant to have!

    Trooper is a very fitting name for this young man!
    He came in to AARCS with quills in his handsome face and a very swollen leg, and although it was not broken, he was unable to bare weight. With some love and care, he’s almost 100% recovered and quickly coming into his own!

    Once placed in foster, his personality blossomed. At first he was timid and unsure, yet trusting of his foster mom. He is becoming more sure of himself and has learned a lot from his foster sister… how to navigate the elevator, how to sit, and how to be patient for his food.

    He sleeps well in his crate when the humans are not at home – and seems to like country music instead of silence while he waits for his foster mom to return. He is very excited when it’s time to eat but with the help of a “”slow-eater”” bowl, he is slowly learning that food will always come and he doesn’t have to engulf it all at once! He has also been a good boy when meeting new people, even when they knock on the door.

    Trooper a smart young man who is learning more each day and will only continue to grow in to himself and become more confident when he finds his furever home. He would do well with a sister/brother to play with as his energy increases and once he is fit enough, he could make an excellent running or hiking partner.

    Don’t you want a Trooper in your life?
