A timid puppy is urgently in need of help after being picked up and taken to a busy Texas animal control agency. The 10-month-old Labrador retriever mix, named Roo, has been at the BARC Animal Shelter & Adoptions facility since November 3, and his “safe” period of stray holding has already come and gone.
The Houston Underdogs Facebook page writes:
Roo was found with another pup named “Melanie” after a call was received about approximately 20 stray dogs running lose in the area. Roo is and is super sweet though he is also timid and shy. Roo does have some healing wounds on his nose ,more than likely a result of the rough life living on the streets brings, but other than that seems to be in good health♥️.
Detailing Roo’s fear and uncertainty:
Roo seems to be very scared and is not enjoying the shelter environment at all. Roo is so handsome and looks like he would make the perfect cuddle buddy for the cold winter nights. Roo just needs a family to give him time to see that he can trust people. If you can give Roo the time and love he needs and foster or adopt please contact the page and shelter ASAP. ⚠️Roo’s stray hold is up on 11/08 and he could be in danger at any time⚠️.
Roo needs a kind and patient owner to help him realize that life can be fun. If you are interested in saving Roo’s life, you can assist by networking his adoption information.
