Editor's note: This is a new weekly series called "Pet of the Week" where we feature a companion up for adoption from Pet Haven of Minnesota.
Every two weeks, Richfield Petco partners with Pet Haven of Minnesota for adoption events for dogs and cats that need new homes.
This week's Richfield Patch Pet of the Week is, Rumor:
Rumor was surrendered by her previous owners, through no fault of her own, to the Martin County Humane Society. After 2 months, she was brought up to the Twin Cities and is doing great in foster care with her foster brother who is a terrier mix.
At an estimated age of 4 years old, Rumor loves soft treats and chewing on bones. She loves taking walks and snuggling on the couch. She is working on commands like sit and not jumping on people when she’s excited.
She loves running outside in her foster mom’s fenced-in yard. As far as house training – she is working on it. If you keep on a schedule, she will do great but she has a tough time remembering to tell you when she needs to go out.
The perfect home for Rumor would be one with older children (just because she gets excited and may jump), a fenced in yard or owners with the ability to walk her every day and if she does go to a home with another dog, one that is OK with her being the boss. Rumor likes being in charge.

The next Richfield Petco adoption event is from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sept. 29.
