More about me
Male (Medium). Shepherd blend. Adult - DOB: 2014.
Shelter: DogtownSA - Hennops River (Gauteng)
Hello world, I am Rambo. I made my way to Dogtown from another rescue centre. Back then I had some quirks which they didnt know how to deal with and that also meant that volunteers couldnt spend time with me, which sucked Luckily my quirks have pretty much become a thing of the past and I am ready to be adopted!
Don’t be fooled by my silver – muzzle, I am a ball of energy and love to bounce around and tackle adventures. I really enjoy going for walks and even better if I can end off my walk by collapsing into a paddle pool. I love water and love spending time just soaking up watery-goodness!
I am super smart and I love using my nose! At Dogtown I am often part of the tracking and nose-work activities and I am the best by far, even if I have to say so myself! I also love playing with ropes and tuggy toys.
So one of my quirks kind of remained (although I am much better now than when I first came to Dogtown), and that is that I am a bit strange when it comes to strangers touching me. I really don’t like it, I mean who knows where those hands have been?! However once we are friends I can be a real cuddle bug and enjoy attention. It’s just having strangers randomly pet me that wierds me out a bit, I am sure there are many humans out there who can relate!
I am not very social with other dogs, I was never really given the opportunity to know other dogs or how to behave around them, so for now my perfect home would be one where I am the only dog. That might change though, we are working on my social skills everyday!
The touching thing is a bit of a concern with kids too so a home with no young kids would be better, you know how quick grabby those tiny-human hands can be.
I know I am not exactly the obvious choice but I have so much love to give, I really really just want a family who will love me, just the way I am. Please come meet me?
