Rolph is kind of a Heinz 57 dog but he looks very much like a Jack Russell Terrier so we're thinking Jack Russell Terrier and Chihuahua. This pint size dog will need a very special family as he is very shy. His mother was feral and came into foster care pregnant. Rolph was raised in that foster home but for some reason he never adapted like the other puppies. His foster family has been working with him since he was born to make sure he was adoptable but it has taken them five years to get to this point. In the last year or so he has really made progress - he will sit next to you on the sofa and you can actually pick him up. He is still afraid when you approach him quickly so go slow and talk to him while you approach him. He still needs work on leash training and some discipline but he does listen and he's fairly smart. In the last year he has really bonded with his foster mom and doesn't leave her side. We feel that he'll be the same way with this new family once they put a little time and effort into him. He will be a great dog - he may not be one that will let you snuggle all over him but he will sit with you, follow you everywhere and sleep with you. DOB approx. 10/20/2015. Adoption fee: $225.
