Meet Rigs aka Rigatoni

Hi Everyone! My name is Rigatoni. I prefer Rigs, but sometimes my foster mom calls me Rigaroo or Riggieboy..

I am around 10 months old, I’m originally from Gallia County, near Gallipolis, Ohio. My foster parents think that I am part shiba and german shepard, I look like a mini german shepard with shorter hair but there’s something else, they’re just not sure what ?

I am a pretty shy little guy, around humans that is, and I do get spooked easily – hand gestures, eye contact, you name it! My foster mom and dad seem really nice but I’m just not sure about being pet, it looks like it could be fun, I just don’t know. Since I’m still pretty shy, I don’t know what “going for a walk” means, or “sit”, or “laydown” for that matter. But I do know what “outside” means and I’m potty-trained. I’m not really sure about the crate, I sit in there when my foster parents are at work, but at night time, I sleep
under my foster parent’s bed.

Currently I have 2 foster brothers and a big fenced in back yard to play my favorite game – tag! I feel like I could run around for hours! I’ve also been learning the importance of sharing and not taking toys/treats from my foster brothers, as well as when they’re willing to play and when they want to sleep.

My ideal home would have a fenced in back yard, a furry friend that I can play with, and maybe a human sibling or two, of the older variety. Running and crawling kids kind of terrifies me and I go to one of my hiding places. I would also like to have a place that I can call my own – right now it’s under my foster parents bed, or behind their couch, I go there when I get scared.

Rig's adoption fee is $230. He is neutered, UTD on vaccines, micro-chipped, heartworm negative and on heartworm/flea/tick prevention.
