How did you meet your canine companion?
I found him online at Petfinder! Emailed on a Friday, met him at the shelter on Saturday and he moved in on Monday.
What’s the story behind your dog’s name?
It’s actually a mix from a 70s British children’s tv show Roobarb and Custard and my favorite pie Rhubarb! Didn’t know he can jump like a kangaroo so Roo fits him!
How has your life changed since you have had your dog?
One of the reasons I wanted a dog was to get out more, to go on walks. Living in New York I miss nature! And with a dog you get to know new people, having play dates with neighbors and making new friends!
Which 3 words best describe your dog’s personality?
Curious, hungry and easygoing
Who’s your dog’s favourite person?
Me! And he has a soft spot for my friend Pelle who walks him sometimes!
What’s your dog’s superpower?
Sniffing! He can smell a little piece of old pizza on the street a mile away!
If your dog had a job, what would it be?
Garageman, he loves garbage! And maybe some modelling on the side, he’s so photogenic and likes to pose.
What’s your dog’s most unappealing / most embarrassing habit?
He’s quite good, the only thing I can think of is hiding slimy bones in my bed!
Where can we find you hanging out with your dog?
On the west side of Manhattan or his favorite place Central Park
