UPDATE: Rookie lives a life of luxury and hikes in Vail as a permanent member of Team Leo Animal Rescue!!
This is Rookie. He was rescued from a high kill facility in Arizona. After delivering dogs rescued from puppy mills to an AZ rescue, the team decided to not return home empty handed, so they found the high kill shelter and rescued four pups that were on the 'list' for the next day or two. Rookie, along with our foster dog, Shyla, made the trip to NMDR to freedom and safety. Rookie may look tough because someone was so insensitive as to crop his ears...probably to fit an image they were trying to set...but he's a big sweet heart. The most danger we faced with him was damage to our cameras as he flew by to catch his ball!! Rookie so deserves an active family that will love him and treat him with kindness instead of using him as a status symbol and throwing him away when the fashion changes. Please share his story and help his forever family find him!
