To spring or bounce back. To recover. A ball or shot that bounces back after striking a surface.
A huge thank you to the anonymous good Samaritan who contacted animal control to report this case of cruelty. Redound's owner signed him over to avoid a ticket and this lucky guy is now in our program, recuperating from his ordeal. And he's a changed man for sure!

Rebound had a hard life and was in terrible shape when rescued but he is healthy now, looking awesome and ready for adoption.
Hard to believe this cute guy was nothing but skin and bones when he arrived at the shelter, had a terrible coat, was dirty, covered in sores and a few other minor injuries . What a change love and good care do. It only took a few weeks to transform this poor beat-up pup into a happy, good looking Don Juan.
Rebound is medium size, average for the breed, and has a gorgeous red-bronze brindle coat.
Rebound is living-it-up at MPR shelter. And talk about a "rebound". To watch this awfully neglected, starving and dejected dog bounce back on his feet after such a hard life has been nothing short than amazing. It's like a happy light turned on in his eyes.
Rebound uses the doggy door to let himself out if he needs to potty and keeps his inside kennel clean. This behavior indicates that he most likely has a good concept of house breaking. He has not been destructive of his bedding to date and is actually great at keeping his bed neat and tidy.
While curious of what's going on around him, he is not overlay reactive towards the other dogs kenneled next to him.
What a fun-loving guy! Always in a good mood and absolutely thrilled to spend time with the volunteers. Rebound was slightly apprehensive when he first came to us but quickly came out of his shell. We believe he was born well-adjusted and outgoing but was dealt a very bad hand. Consequently, he is promptly becoming the happy boy he was born to be as a result of being well-cared for.
One of Rebound's best perk is his ability to vocalize his happiness with a funny "Arooh-roo, hoo-roo, arooh-a-roo"... Well, this translation might not be entirely accurate ;-) In any case, its funny and very endearing.
Rebound loves to play also, cuddle, or to just hang out with his loved ones. His energy has been moderate so far and we could describe him as an all-around easy-going kind of guy.
Behavior with people:
Fun-loving, friendly, happy. He's becoming more and more outgoing as he realizes people are nice. He's well behaved for the most part. A little bit of jumping but nothing out of control. He is responsive and eager to please. We can also describe him as a "leaner" and a tiny bit needy but nothing problematic at all. He's just very loving and eager to connect with people.
Behavior with children:
Rebound hasn't met small children since being with us, He met a teenager and was great with him. He does use his mouth a little bit to make a connection but is gentle about it. We have no reason to believe he wouldn't do well in a home with children but haven't seen him around little ones.
Behavior with other dogs:
Rebound hasn't been introduced to other dogs since being with us. He doesn't seem overly interested in making doggy-friends. He's soaking up all the love he can get from people. We wont rule out a home with a compatible female for this boy, but we believe he would love to be an only pet.
Behavior with other animals:
Little training but he's learning. Heck, he had never been on a couch before but that's the first thing he learned with MPR ;-) Now he knows sit and is working on down and shake.
While we cant guaranty that he is housebroken, he does keep his kennel clean and hasn't been having accidents in the play rooms or marked.
Rebound's bright energy and ability to pick-himself up and cowboy-up after suffering hardships and challenges is so inspiring. We absolutely love his positive spirit!
