About Roo

G’day Mate…Meet Roo! This 10-month old canine kangaroo came to us from local animal control after being found as a stray. Roo Roo is a 29-lb pipsqueak, who bounces around to her people looking for love. She loves playing fetch inside (and out!) and has an adorable sprint where she looks like she’s hopping around like a magic marsupial.

Roo is cute, super tiny, lovable, attentive, and a true velcro pup when snuggled up inside. She is elegantly agile and can squeeze into the smallest of spots with grace…whether it’s between her people cuddling on the couch, or just squeaking by your legs as something falls to the kitchen floor. She also eats any and all treats, which will make continued training a breeze! Despite her young age, Roo knows exactly who she is…very warm, snuggly, overly friendly, and loves giving face kisses (seriously – non-face kissers need not apply). Roo looks like a miniature German Shepherd, but without all the shedding, and has some age-appropriate puppy energy. She loves, loves, loves to play with her canine foster sister! But is just as content to let you throw a shrimp on the barbie and just hang out with the fam. She especially loves going for walks with the ENTIRE family. Roo is an easy and loveable pup who would be great for most families. Due to her lack of history, older kids would be best for this special snuggle buddy.

Roo’s top 3 priorities:
1. A family who gives her the attention she craves and one who doesn’t spend long days away from home.
2. A family devoted to continue teaching her basic manners to help her be the best pup ever. She is VERY treat motivated and eager to learn.
3. A family dedicated to lots of playtime to help burn her puppy energy, so she can relax and become the best snuggle bug ever!
