Roper is a really fun dog underneath all his uncertainty. He seems to have slightly compromised vision, so sometimes he approaches people with caution. At other times he is extroverted, bouncy and playful, and he is funny and endearing with his goofiness. Roper is shy and fearful with strangers, and he can be reactive to them when he is behind a barrier such as a fence. It's usually best to meet him while he's out walking on a leash. Once he gets comfortable with people, he loves to be doted on and to play. Roper was born in 2012 and came to Best Friends from a rescue organization that was closing its doors. At Dogtown he is working on meeting new people with more confidence, and he is having play dates with other dogs to practice his dog skills. Roper would love to go home with a person or family who can continue helping him build his confidence.
