Adoptable Dog of the Week- Corndog
So cute you could just eat him up! Our Adoptable Dog of the Week is Corndog, a 5 years old Rottweiler mix from Austin, Texas. This adorable goofball is neutered, current on his vaccinations, dewormed and microchipped. Corndog is a laid-back guy that gets along with dogs who have a similar personality, and he’s suitable for a family with older children, as well.
This 77-pound fur baby will shower you love from the moment he meets you. Corndog is friendly towards strangers and super affectionate with people he knows- he’s always hoping to get some cuddles and ear scratches when volunteers visit the shelter.
But, while he loves snuggling, his actual favorite activity doesn’t involve petting- but rather- a tennis ball. This lovely pooch is absolutely bonkers for his tennis balls and will love playing fetch with you, gently bringing you the ball back so you could throw it one more. Be warned, though- Corndog could do this for hours!
In words of his rescuers, Corndog is just a big softie who just wants to chase balls and go on walks with his people. They also think that he has potential to get along well with other pets, as he did well in all his doggie playgroups at the shelter- cats would probably need some adjusting to, but there is potential. Older children are also OK, but younger kids could get easily knocked down during play with this big, energetic fella.
Additionally, Corndog is a part of APA!’s Total Obedience Program, which means he’s working with a volunteer to learn all of his manners. He’s doing great with leash walking and learning simple commands and he’s ready to show off his skills in a new home. Could you be the one to make his dreams come true?
