Adopt Rowley

Rowley has been waiting to be adopted for a very long time and just needs someone to give him a chance. Rowley has a real zest for life and can't wait to shower some affection on a new family. He is super good looking (Duh!), smart, independent and eager to learn all about life in a forever home. Rowley likes people, other dogs and bird watching. He only enjoys short walks because of his arthritis. The shelter also recently learned that he may have some hearing loss. He needs a family that understands him and how to keep him happy and safe. Please stop by the shelter and ask to meet Rowley.
