Rebel is a male hound mix approximately one year of age. He is seeking a person who enjoys long walks, cuddling in bed and sharing whatever is left over on your dinner plate.

Rebel found himself in a kill shelter in rural North Carolina due to his sight impairment which borders on full blindness.  However, he seems to be able to see light and movement.  

Rebel is a 50 pound goof ball, and would do well in a home with other pets, especially a home with an already established alpha male.  Because of his sight impairment, he likes to follow another dog around the house.  Rebel is still in his puppy years, so he still tends to jump up as his way of finding you. Rebel said he promises to work hard on breaking that habit.  Rebel is energetic and playful, but he also does not mind being lazy and just lying around the house.  Rebel has not yet been neutered. 

Please feel free to contact his previous foster home in North Carolina, Chris Rogers at 973 975 8383 or crogers@giofund.org for more details.

If you'd like to meet him, please complete an application at www.ehrdogs.org & be sure to mention his name - REBEL!  He will be in NJ and ready for adoption or a foster home on April 26th.
