Hi there my name is Rooger, thank you for taking the time to seek me out. I am a shy guy in a big body, it takes me some time to warm up to new people and new environments. However, once I start to feel comfortable I am a pretty relaxed care free guy. I enjoy playing with the tennis ball, getting belly rubs, and giving kisses. Of course, not on the first date though! Some things that you should know about me, I will probably need several visit with you until I am comfortable going home with you. I would prefer not to have to compete for your attention so if I could be the only pet, that would be greatly appreciated. Loud noises and unpredictable behavior startles me so best to be in a household with children 15 and up. Due to my special needs I would prefer that you have had experience with dogs already; this way you can help me grow and become comfortable in new situations. If you would like to see me I am located in a different part of the building so please contact our client services at the desk at the front entrance. I have already given them the memo that you will be asking about me so they are expecting you. I am about 2 years old and weigh 70 pounds
 

here's Rooger, hiding Mcas volunteer Stephanie, when we first started taking pics.
We took it easy, and allowed him  plenty of time and space ( and treats) and Rooger gradually relaxed - which was quite a step for such an insecure guy. He is really a sweetie, who probably lost out on needed socialization when he was a pup, and now needs a special patient home to succeed. Going back into the shelter where he could hear the dogs barking was scary for him.
Hope he gets his new home soon where he can live a long happy life.
