Rescue Me ID: 14-11-15-00010Owen (male)

Rhodesian Ridgeback Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Needs Vaccinations 

    This young guy is now called Owen. He looks to be a possible Ridgeback mix about a year old and already neutered. He was a stray that was never reclaimed. He is a very energetic dog, very playful and friendly. Not sure how he is with other dogs so meet and greet would be best to see how he gets along with your dog. He will walk on a leash but can't say if he's house trained. Owen is a really good dog but could use a little training. Haven't seen him around kids yet either so can't say how he is with them, he's probably be good with older kids but not small kids due to his playfulness he may be to rough for them. If you are interested ... (Read More)in Owen then give us a call at the shelter 520-586-3600. His adoption fee will be $25 since he's already neutered and that covers his vaccinations. (Less)
