|Status:||Available for Adoption|
Behind his melting expression, robust Rigby is a mischief-maker who crackles with energy and enthusiasm. This high spirited honey can run rings around every dog in his foster home, including his brother, Dezi, and being highly food motivated, is eager to learn and easy to teach (clicker training and positive reinforcement also work well), with consistency being key. Extremely affectionate and ever so sweet towards his foster mom, he revels in being held, especially at night when it’s quiet. And being so bright, he’s both crate and housetrained, even ringing the bell on the door when he wants to go out! Safest and most secure in familiar situations, Rigby thrives on structure, doing best in a tranquil environment with a set routine and people he trusts. For these reasons, he’s best suited to the calmest of homes (he isn’t available for out-of-state adoptions and won’t make a good apartment dog) without children and with a minimum of "traffic" in the form of visiting strangers. With the aid of 15 mg of fluoxetine (Prozac) daily to ease his anxiety and the tender patience of understanding adopters, Rigby will return their love fully and joyously fur-ever.
