SHINE Forever Fosters


Mr. Handsome with a capital "H"!!!
housebrokenno small children

Rory is a large, VERY TALL, adult, HANDSOME red/white neutered male with one blue eye and one amber/blue parti eye. He can be good with most people once he trusts you, older children(over 6yrs old), CAT friendly, he gets along ok with most other dogs after an adjustment period and is pretty laid back in general, but also shows true Siberian spirit as a pack member. Rory is also HW negative and on preventative and UTD on vaccines.

Rory can be grumbly/snarly with people in certain situations which should be taken as a warning that he is uncomfortable and insecure, but he is still submissive once he trusts you. Rory does not do well with very small children because of these personality traits. He is EXTREMELY SMART, totally housebroken, crate trained and seeks attention and approval of humans constantly, but takes time to trust them first. Rory is a servant to routine and can ring a bell if he needs to go outside to potty. Rory is a complete DREAM on walks! He took to a Halti head collar and leash like a duck to water. He is non-destructive with minor separation anxiety at first in new situations. Rory is EXTREMELY loving and devoted to his forever foster family and has bonded very strongly with those he trusts.

It seems Rory may have had a pretty rough life up to now and has some "baggage" emotionally that goes right along with it. He has come a long, long way since coming into rescue, but the SHINE Board has determined that Rory will do best as a Forever Foster.

Rory is truly an inspiring, intelligent and extremely loving canine who just yearns for the time, patience and space he needs to thrive. Help SHINE give Rory the "Forever Foster Home" he deserves.
