Rory had a good home, but she lost it when her person had a life change and had to leave her in a household that proved to be too chaotic for her.Rory is very picky with her doggy friends, and can be shy and fearful with new people. She's currently working on building trust with her caregivers. Once she gets to know someone, she is sweet and sensitive and will lean in for affection.Rory (born in 2009) likes to stay active. She enjoys playing ball and going for car rides. And she's especially fond of water, including kiddie pools, the creek, and water buckets. She'd love a home where she can get some splashing or swimming in every now and again.Rory is part of our Single Pets* program! That means that she is eligible for a free flight home and waived adoption fee!*Single pets do best as the only dog or cat in the home.
