About Rogue

“Hello! My name is Rogue and just like my X-men namesake, I attend to the energy of those around me. If you have lots of love to give, you will get lots of love in return. I even have a heart-shaped marking on my side to remind you of all the love I have inside.

I came to AARCS as a very expectant Mama, and spent some time in an amazing foster home to have and nurse my babies (the x-men litter!). Now that they are all on a quest to find their forever families, it is time for me to do the same. I could not be more ready. Right now I’m in a foster home with two dogs, a greyhound mix and a retriever. I could play with them all day long. Nothing brings me joy quite like a good wrestle over a toy or a run around in the backyard. That said, I also listen when they tell me they are done with playtime, and am quick to settle when my humans re-direct me to do so.

My foster mama says I’m super smart, and already understand commands like “sit” and “leave it”. She says I will be a breeze to train, and am treat motivated to help with that! I am also totally housetrained and have had NO accidents in my foster home. I’m good at sharing toys, space, cuddles and food with other dogs too.

Sometimes I raise my voice if someone is getting close to the house (I’m named for a superhero, so it’s my job to protect!), or if I hear another dog chatting to me across the fence. Otherwise, I am a quiet girl who is super curious, and I want to see what everyone in the house is up to (must be the herding breed in me).

Something I am working on is keeping 4 paws on the ground (I get so excited when someone comes home that I want to leap into their arms). Foster Mama says I am already so much better at remembering that, and will only continue to improve with positive reinforcement for staying down. I also sometimes forget that I can’t wrestle with humans the same way I do with other dogs, so I might hold your hand in my mouth when we play. When my foster family says, “Ouch!” I know I forgot again, and quickly stop. With help, I think I can remember more and more every day.

I’m good on leash, although I can forget that my person might not want to go as fast as I do. What can I say?! A harness really helps to remind me, and I respond quickly when my walker calls me to slow down or come closer. My foster Mama says I have good recall in the yard when I’m off-leash, and a fenced yard is a must for me! I would also love a family that can take me on walks or hikes, as I love to sniff all the sniffs in the big, wide world! I’m fantastic in the car, so taking me to the mountains is easy-peasy.”
