Rothar has reached retirement with 27 races to his credit.  He proudly earned his Canine Good Citizen Certificate through The Greyhound Inmate Experience.  Rothar is still new to us here at AFG and we are getting to know him better.  Could this surfer boy be the one to catch your wave?

Rothar is an outgoing, friendly, affectionate boy. Rothar (or Rotti as he is commonly known) is a confident dog, not really fearing new situations and loving everyone that he meets. He is fairly laidback but would love to snuggle with you all the time if you let him. He will come up for pets and loves to nuzzle his way to you however he can.
Rothar was in the prison program and loves doing his tricks. However, he also gets a little confused about which one you want to do so will try to do all of them at once (sit, stay, AND shake, all together!). He also is not the most graceful dog so this usually ends up with him on the floor, staring at you, wagging his tail.
Rothar loves everything, sometimes too much. He is a little excitable around cats but lives with them and is getting better. He’s very correctable and wants to do what you say but also the cats are just so exciting. He will require a little bit of work to live with them but it’s definitely possible.
Rothar is a great overall dog. He is incredibly sweet, playful, and affectionate. He will be by your side if you want him to be but is also content to lie on a bed and relax. He’s confident in new situations and outgoing. If you’re looking for a goofy cuddle bug, Rothar might be a good dog for you!
