Approx Age: 1 year
Mixed breed
Male, neutered

Rowan was abandoned in a local park in a cage with another dog. A park ranger found the dogs and after contacting Dusty Paws, took them to the animal shelter. We took both dogs into foster care when their hold period was up. They were understandably scared of what was going to happen to them next.

Rowan is a beautiful red and white "Heinz 57" mixed breed. Recent DNA results tell us he has many different ancestors, as varied as Chihuahua and American Staffordshire Terrier! He is about 35 lbs and only one year old. Whatever environment he came from before being dumped has made him wary of people, especially men, and easily frightened by anything new. We believe he had never been out of a backyard. Once he knows and trusts you, however, Rowan is a sweet and affectionate dog who will come to you for pets. Despite being afraid, he has never shown aggression toward people.

Rowan has the potential to be a wonderful companion dog, but he will need to go to a home with patient guardians who are experienced with befriending and training neglected dogs.

Rowan is neutered, micro chipped and current on vaccinations.
