Hi there, I’m Rebel! I am a handsome 6-year-old tri-color boy looking for a forever family to call my own.
I came to NEBHR on the heavy side, and with my foster parents’ help I have lost about five pounds so far. I still have a ways to go to get to a good healthy weight, so I need a family that can help me get there at a healthy rate with healthy food, healthy portions and nice walks.
I absolutely love to cuddle, and I believe I’m a lap dog. I do seem also to have some separation anxiety and do not like to be away from my people, so I would really benefit by having a family where someone is home with me most of the time and can work with me on my anxiety and house training.
I am fine with the cat in my foster home, but I would do best in a home where I am the only dog. I can show some food aggression with other dogs, and I can also get a bit territorial when I feel other dogs get too near my humans. I guess I don’t understand that some humans have enough love to share around to more than one dog. I really do like it to be all about me!
I would probably do best in a home with older children or no children, only because I might knock little ones down. I would not want to hurt them, though!
Do you think you might be the right family for me? If so, please fill out an adoption application and mention me — Rebel!
