Can’t say no to Rhino!

Hi, there! My name is Rhino. I’m a sweet, spunky boy that you’re bound to be wild about. I’m a 1.4-year-old, 57-pound, Rottweiler mix. When I was rescued from San Diego, Texas with the zoo crew, I was in ruff shape. I was covered in fleas, ticks, and had heartworm. After being treated, I am still antigen positive and will be retested when I get my final treatment in 6-9 months and another blood test. I have to keep up with my monthly heartworm meds! I’m already neutered and I’m a healthy pup!

I’m the friendliest fella who greets strangers with a wiggling butt and a big kiss. I adore all humans, dogs, and even cats! I love making friends with new pooches, getting the zoomies, and playing with toys. I can be a little protective of my toys at times but never mean. I do have a tendency to destroy the soft ones, but rubber toys will keep me endlessly entertained! Even though I have puppy energy, I can also be quite the couch potato. I love being near my humans, so if you’ll let me, I’ll happily settle in for some snuggles on the couch or in bed.

I’m a well-trained boy who never has accidents in the house. I will whine at the door and let you know if I need to go out. I do well on the leash and love getting out for walks. I know the word “kennel” and can hang out in there with a toy to keep me busy. I might bark once or twice, but if you ignore me I’ll settle down shortly. I’ve been known to be a curious boy who sometimes gets into the cat box or puts my paws up on the counter, but I am a good listener and can be redirected. I love working for treats and would love to continue my training with you!

I’m a big lover boy who would make a wonderful family dog. Since I’m still in puppy mode, it would be best if I’m with kids who can walk on their own so that I don’t accidentally knock them over. I can live with any furry friends, but would be fine being a solo pup as long as you have some time to play with me! I can be quite energetic and then equally cuddly. I’m the pawfect balance! So what do you say? Rhi-no you will love me!

My adoption fee is $450 and that includes spaying/neutering, shots, and microchip. If you want to take me home, please fill out the form on the website here: https://theanimalpad.org/adoption-application/
