Pet of the Week

Rooney the Poochon

Pictured above is our latest Pet of the Week, Rooney.

Her name is inspired by both actress Rooney Mara (Girl With the Dragon Tattoo) and formidable, but temperamental Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney.

She shares qualities of both the actress and the soccer player, with plenty of attitude and energy to boot! Just a lot more hair than Wayne!

While the owner isn’t certain, they believe Rooney is a poodle and Bichon Frise mix, which you can see in her face and demeanor.

The hybrid breed is also known as “Bich-Poo,” “Poochon,” or simply Bichon Poodle.

Rooney is full of energy and loves both playing, chewing on just about everything, and going for long hikes/walks.
