ABOUT ME: My name is Rhino and I came to the SPCA in November of 2019 from a cruelty case with 10 other animals. When I first came in I had no hair and was very skinny, but the nice people here have helped me grow so much and I look like a completely different dog. I'm now just looking for a family who is ready to play with me. Because I missed my puppy years I'm now making up for it with an active personality!!

FOSTER TESTIMONIAL: He is so loving and playful, like a child. He loves snuggling and will lay on you if you ask. It's so fun to see him do zoomies around the yard and he loves hanging out with everyone outside and playing fetch. He is also incredibly smart - we have taught him 5 tricks so far including rollover! The others are sit, stay, down, off, crate, and paw.

MY DREAM HOME: I'll require a house with a large, privately fenced yard so that I have a way to get my energy out in between our walking/running sessions. Having another playful pup in the home who is similar in size would be awesome!

KIDS: Nah, I am all the excitement you will need!

MY ADOPTERS: Will be experienced with high-energy dogs and willing to work with me on my basic obedience and proper outlets for all my puppy energy! They'll have a heart for rescue and love me for my fun-loving free spirit. My ideal humans will be very active and take me on long walks or runs with them!

SPECIAL NOTE: Potential adopters get to take me on a test drive through a trial adoption!

APPOINTMENT NOTICE: I am in a foster home so please complete an online application if you'd like to meet me!
