A little bit about me …
Introducing Rowan, that’s me! I am a big boy with an even bigger heart with so much love AND kisses to give. I may look intimidating and scary, but I am more of a lover than a fighter. While at the shelter I have made a few good furry friends, but due to my size, making friends is an arduous task. I am a guy that will require lots of physical and mental exercise to keep me happy and healthy. I would also suggest some good obedience training so I can behave like a well-mannered gentleman. As with all shelter dogs, potty training will be in the cards, so have a good plan ready, otherwise you’ll be spending more time than necessary on cleanup. If you’re looking for a loyal floof that has tons of energy and ample amounts of love to give, I’m your guy!
I am a loving guy
I need multiple long walks a day and lots of play time
I love to cuddle
I play best with dogs my own size
I am too energetic for small children and animals
My Ideal Home Would Include …
Someone who has a lot of love to give, and just as much energy as I do! My future family should be the outdoorsy type, who love going hiking and/or camping, and have the time to help me be my best self.
I need to brush up on my training, so I would love it if my future family used positive reinforcement training to help me learn. I’m pretty smart, and I really want to do a good job, so with the right instruction I’ll do great!
*Please note that due to a high volume of interest in some of our animals, we may take multiple applications to ensure everyone gets a chance to apply and be interviewed. We dont do our adoptions on first come first serve basis, we instead focus on matchmaking to ensure the perfect match for both the animal and adopter. We are looking forward to working with you.
Please be advised we only adopt to AZ residents. We make a commitment to all of our animals. So while we appreciate your interest, we ask that you be a local resident to adopt. We do not always know the full background of each animal and sometimes personalities are not fully shown until a few days in the home. If for whatever reason you cannot keep the animal, we appreciate the animal being returned to our facility. It is costly and time consuming to return an animal from out of state. Please check your local animal shelter to find a forever friend near your area.
