About Rhino

“Howdy, I’m Rhino! I am a loving and rambunctious boy with a zest for life and a love of playing. I had a rough start to life when I was hit by a car – it was touch and go for a while but I am back healthy and better than ever. Squeaky toys are my favourite! I’ll even toss them around for myself! I am kennel trained and I sleep in my kennel quietly all night. When I’m not napping I am constantly on the GO!! I am a busy boy and I love to play games and go for walks! I know how to sit and lay down – house training I am still working on but with consistency I’m sure I’ll get the hang of it.

Potentially due to the accident I was in, I don’t have the best coordination and I sometimes run into things or vehicles passing by might spook me. I do really well though with the eyesight I do have and it really doesn’t slow me down. I am still learning that nipping isn’t a great idea so I would do best in a home without young children. I have a hard time controlling my excitement and sometimes I get a little too bouncy or frustrated and need some quiet time. My foster parents say my manners are improving so I would love to keep working on that with you!

Speaking of a new family, I would do best with a friendly medium or large sized dog that loves to rough house as much as I do. There is no better game than racing around with a friend! Cats are not for me – unless I get to chase them! A yard would also be the absolute best so I have a safe space to play fetch and romp around! I am also working on house training and need a home willing to teach me all the basics. As I cannot always “hold it”, I would do best in a home with a dog run or who is home often and able to let me outside to go while being patient with me.

I’m looking for an active family that has experience with smart, high energy dogs like myself as I love to think outside the box. I will need lots of puzzles and fun brain games to play to keep my brain busy as well as my body. I am a unique boy with a lot to offer! I love attention and cuddles when I’m sleepy. I have a few quirks but the best way to find out if we’re a match is to meet me and see!

Let’s be best friends!” – xo, Rhino
