Rescue Story

Roka came into GEARS’ care from a partner community and is now ready to find her furever home!

My Bio

Hey everyone! My name is Roka. I am a very sweet, people loving girl. I am very excited when I first wake up and see my foster people. I cry and do a weird pig snort because I am so excited everyone is up😂. I get a little excited and forget I am not supposed to jump up but I try really hard to remember. I am very treat motivated and I might love to eat a bit too much. It is best I eat from a slow feeder dish or a snuffle mat. I like car rides with my foster family and sit nice with the kids beside me! Sometimes I cry for a few minutes when the kids can’t come along.

I am crate trained at night and sleep from 9 pm until 6:30 am. I even let my foster family sleep in until 9 am on weekends. I am used to family members going to work at odd hours and have learned to sleep through them leaving the house. I have naps in my crate when my foster mom is busy but I like to have my crate where I can see her or else I cry. I am fine in the crate for a few hours when my foster parents are out but am used to them home for most of the day. At night my crate does not need to be by anyone. I am fully house trained and am great at asking to go outside.

I am working hard on my manners. I know I am not allowed on the furniture, but sometimes I get excited and forget. I know sit and sometimes shake a paw. I know down and off. I am working on my recall and lay down. I am a really good helper on garbage day. I rip and shred all the cardboard so it fits in the recycling bags. I also am really good at reminding everyone when my water dishes are empty. I love the noise they make when I throw them around and the humans sure fill them quick after a few throws. I am also very talented. Sometimes I carry the full dish when it already has water in it, then I dump it wherever I want it. My humans here went and bought a big refilling dish. It’s not as fun, as I can’t move it or throw it… yet.

My previous foster home had lots of human foster siblings (12, 15, 21 and 25) and they brought lots of friends over. I loved them all!

I love toys and bouncing balls. I always go in my kennel when meals are served because I just love food and I want it all the time. My foster mom says it’ s bad manners to jump up at the table but the food looks so gooood. Maybe you can help me learn some more manners?

My current foster mom thinks that I would make a great companion for a single person who would really like to find their best friend. Is that you??

Love, Roka♥️
