Rum is one of two dogs who were dumped at our volunteer accommodation in January of 2019. With no idea where they came from and nowhere to return them, we decided to put them up for adoption and find them some new homes! Rum and the dog with which she was dumped, Raisin, have become inseparable. When Raisin was going through surgery, Rum even laid loyally and protectively by her side, watching her and making sure she was okay. These dogs refused to leave each other’s sides.

Rum is an excitable little bundle of affection and energy who loves being around people and other dogs. She is still a puppy in training and will need someone who is ready to dedicate the time and effort needed to get her perfectly trained! So far, she has been doing very well with learning to sit, give paw, and wait for her food. 

This little girl loves to play with other dogs of all sizes – so much so that she can get over-excited and being to growl which can upset other dogs. She is improving when it comes to her behaviour, but needs to be trained in becoming a better playmate with smaller dogs. Rum is incredibly food-driven and finishes her food quite quickly. She will need someone who can help her work on her patience and slow down her eating. She is doing well on lead but does tend to pull and jump around because she is so keen for her walk!

Rum is a happy and loving dog who will be a best friend to any special human who can match her energy.

Ideally, we would love for Rum and Raisin to be adopted together. However, we are open to either of them being adopted separately if the home is right.
