This week we want to give you a closer look at Rhino, courtesy of our friends at ReadingGlasses.com! Clearly, this long-term resident hasn’t found their forever home yet because the right person just hasn’t laid eyes on them yet! Keep reading for more details about this playful pup!
Rhino came to the SPCA of Texas from a cruelty case, and had lost all of his hair due to neglect. Thankfully his fur has grown back beautifully, but the one thing he will never get back is his crucial first puppy year. Due to his lack of proper socialization, Rhino is struggling in the shelter environment with proper interactions with humans. Don’t get us wrong – he LOVES people – he just doesn’t quite understand that humans don’t enjoy to be jumped on, or having their fingers nibbled in play. So we’re looking for an adopter for Rhino was has lots of experience with training puppies, because at heart that’s what Rhino is – a big puppy!
Despite the challenges he’s currently facing, Rhino is actually a very smart dog and eager to please. He has conquered the perfect sit, although he currently just sits still long enough to gobble up his reward! Rhino is a great dog for someone who is active, patient, and willing to take on a challenge! He’d love a home with a fenced-in yard, and he’d be happy to have a doggie sibling around his size to play with and teach him some basic doggie manners. This will be his first home ever, so we expect him to make mistakes, but we think he has the potential to be a great companion. As long as you’re ok with buying him lots of toys, because he collects those as a hobby 🙂
