This sweet, handsome guy is Rex.  Our best guess is he is a Golden Retriever/Cocker Spaniel mix.  He is approximately 1 year old and looks like a perpetual puppy!  He weighs around twenty pounds and will not get much larger.  Rex came to us from Turkey, where he had been abandoned by his family.  Fortunately, our wonderful rescuer got him into safety and asked us to find a loving family for this adorable boy.  

Rex is a pretty high energy pup.  He needs daily walks and play as well as space to run around and get his zoomies out…and of course to chase all the squirrels!  His foster family takes him on daily trips to the local dog park and he has a blast running, chasing, and playing with many different dogs.  Running and playing is a really good way for him to not only get exercise but also doggie socialization.  He loves playing fetch, too, so having lots of tennis balls handy is important!  Rex would do best with a large yard and another playful (similar size) dog to be his BFF.  While Rex does great with new dogs, he is a bit more reserved with new people.  Because of this we will be looking for a family without young kids.  He needs a little time to warm up to someone new and feel comfortable.  Once he knows you, he will be your best friend, and wants to stay close.  He enjoys hanging out on the couch with his people and loves being petted.

Rex has pretty good house manners.  He has had a few potty accidents when he first arrived at his foster home but is doing much better.  His forever family will need to continue his training by showing him the appropriate place to go potty and praising him when he goes there.  Rex is crate trained and has been sleeping in a crate at night.  His foster family have been working on the basic obedience commands, and he is a quick learner.  He is a bit picky with food and treats but is definitely motivated by toys and attention!
