SCLRR is pleased to present Royce Roy.
2020-05-09: Hi! My name is Royce and I just turned 3 years old in March. Don’t be deceived by my serious face, I am actually a happy, medium energy dog who loves to be around people. My foster mom says I am an adorable, loving dog with big brown eyes that will melt your heart! When I first met my foster mom, I was overweight (96.5 pounds) and had no manners. Since then I have lost about 10 pounds, underwent neuter surgery, and have been exercising regularly and learning some basic commands.
I am a really gentle boy, but I need a lot more work on my leash manners. My foster mom says I am VERY strong and if I see other dogs on our walk I get super excited pulling and barking(tail wagging) to get to them to play. Some dog owners find me intimidating, but I just want to play. I need a strong handler to help me learn the correct way to approach other dogs when I’m on a leash. When I’m off-leash I’m perfect. Before the dog parks closed my foster mom would take me there to run around and play with the other dogs and I had a blast!
My foster mom says I’m pretty smart because after only a few weeks I learned Stop, Wait, This Way, Leave It, Eyes on Me and Come Here. My foster mom says I am a perfect dog at home. After my morning walk/jog, I will settle down and nap while everyone works at their desks but I keep them in my sight at all times. I do like to ask for head/belly rubs throughout the day but other than that I am just chill.
I am OK to be left alone for short periods of time and will sleep or chew on a bone until you come home. One time, my foster mom tried to see if I would enjoy relaxing in the backyard, but I just sat by the sliding door wiling it to open with my stare – I guess you can say I’m an in-door dog! A family with or without another dog is fine for me; but I’m pretty large and sometimes get the zoomies, so probably no small children. My foster mom doesn’t have cats, but she suspects I would chase them, so probably no cats.
I have been shuttled around a bit in my three years and I am ready to settle down in my forever home. Will yours be mine? If you are interested in meeting me, please contact your family rep.
