I'm Rool, Adopt Me!
Border Collie / Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) | Young | Male

1-year-old Rool is a gorgeous boy that has plenty of energy to keep you off the couch and on your feet. He loves to get outside and run around, as well as play a game or go off in search of pesky squirrels. Rool is a smart cookie and would benefit from ongoing training not only to continue developing his manners but as a great way to keep him mentally stimulated. Rool has a positive history with other dogs. We recommend Rool take a Basic Manners class where he can learn polite ways of seeking creature comforts in life. He currently weighs 45 pounds.

Rool's adopter must be at least 18 years old with valid state-issued identification. ARF encourages family members to participate in the adoption process, especially children and family dogs. Please visit ARF's web site for information on adoption and to view more cute canines.
