Rouki the Min-Pin-Pug-x

About Rouki

Hi my name is Rouki, or Rookie, I answer to both pronunciations, but most of all, I answer to people! I love people and other dogs. I am a Miniature pinscher/pug puppy, which is a very cute mix with my floppy ears and wrinkled head.

As you can see, I have a cast on. I broke my elbow! At just 8 months of age, too. My surgery was on June 15th, so I have until July 13th with the cast and cage rest, then another 2 weeks of taking it very easy (cage rest and easy walks) before I can play more normally. And boy, do I want to play! It’s hard to resist my big brown eyes and floppy ears but my foster family must help me heal well to set me up for life. Later on, I won’t even remember all this confinement but I will enjoy a healthy leg to run on my whole life.

I am super sociable and a little scamp. I step all over my foster brother’s legs and when he complains, I put my cone right over his face and talk sass to him with little chirps and barks and funny theatrical growls. I don’t take him very seriously, much to his chagrin! But he loves me anyway because he lets me lie next to him when I feel like being quiet.

If you are sitting or lying down, I need to be on you and will fall asleep and just be completely limp and relaxed. I love head and ear rubs, especially right now when I can’t scratch my own ears!

I am good boy in the house and crate, although I will complain initially if everyone else is walking around and I can’t. I can bark quite loudly, so attached living is maybe not the best thing for me. My only flaw so far seems to be baskets and ruttan. I think they are chew toys, but I am young still. With exercise and occupation, that will go away, but they are so tasty! I need a yard to dart around in when my leg gets better. My foster family can see that I will be a little rocket of a runner when I get better!

If you would like an active, happy little dog, please apply for me. We will contact the most suitable applications. Rouki’s recovery protocol must be respected by his adoptive family or he must wait until -at minimum- his 4 weeks is up with the cast. This is to ensure his full and complete recovery, and a happy and healthy life with full mobility.

Surrenders

Here at Rosie Animal Adoption, we understand that the decision to give up a family pet is not always an easy one and that the dog's best interests are always of paramount importance. Whether you have a family pet or a stray to surrender, please be aware that there are many unscrupulous people who are always on the lookout for unaltered dogs to breed strictly for profit. Dogs kept for this purpose, be it by a “backyard breeder” or “puppy miller,” are usually kept in inhumane conditions that are worse than you can imagine. We get many calls from people who are “in a hurry” to re-home their dogs, claiming that they simply cannot wait. With the increasing number of homeless dogs in the province of Quebec , our resources are always stretched to the limit and we do not always have immediate openings. We would ask that you please be patient when contacting our volunteers to surrender a dog.

We will do our best to help you as quickly as we can, and may also be able to refer you to another group that we are affiliated with, but the most important message here is to proceed very cautiously if you are giving away or selling your dog to someone who may be portraying a private individual. The best thing you can do is to be sure to have your pet spayed or neutered and the worse thing you can do is offer an unaltered pet “free to a good home.” We have seen what can happen.
