This is Rory, a 3-months old lab/sharpei puppy. I used to call him “Red” because he was the reddest of all his siblings (they all look nothing like each other!). You can see the post on his siblings here (they’ve went to good homes, hurrah!).
Little Rory is still looking for a home of his own, and if you think he looks cute and warmfuzzy from the photos, wait until you meet him in person!
Rory was originally a little timid and not sure what to make of the food treats or toys, but now he loves toys (the lab part of him is kicking in) and is getting more motivated by food each day.
Food or not, Rory has no problems understanding ‘sit’ and does a very nice job.
His ears are his most distinguishing feature. You can tell he’s thinking very hard when his ears open and close. (Being a puppy is hard work, you know…). Here’s a video:
Rory also likes to snuggle in your lap, and he enjoys being petted, especially on his belly and behind his ears.
Rory is a fairly gentle puppy (his energy level only shows up when he chases a toy) and somehow manages to endear himself to everyone he’s met. I’ve seen many folks stop by and go ‘Awwwwww’ and Rory sits up straighter, hoping they’ll take him home.
All Rory really needs is a kind and loving home, a steady routine of walk/play/affection, and go to puppy school classes (so he can make other canine friends and learn other tricks).
If you are interested in Rory, please visit him in Kennel 39.
