Morty and his friend Rick were taken to the shelter in New Braunfels after their owner passed away. Now they are in loving care of GRR.

Personality: Morty’s foster mom thinks he is housebroken, although he has had a few accidents in the house. This is likely an attention seeking behavior that he will stop once he settles in to this new life he finds himself in. He is baby gated into one room when left alone and at night. He barks for a few minutes when his people leave his sight at bed time, probably not wanting to be alone.

Morty plays well with his buddy Rick but has not met any other dogs and has had no cat exposure. He rides well in the car and would love to ride “shot gun” but will settle quietly into the back seat. He’s great on the leash, walking politely along side or behind his foster mom. Cars passing by spook him a bit, but he doesn’t bolt.

Morty is great in the house, settling down quietly when the people are settled. He will get up and follow anyone who is walking around the house. He obviously misses his owner. He will also follow his brother Rick around. He’s not much interested in toys but chase a ball if Rick is chasing it.

When it comes to grooming, he’s a bit of a wiggle worm. Baths aren’t his thing but he’s cooperative when being brushed. He is pretty easy going with a medium energy level, is very outgoing around people. He really loves people!

Ideal Home: Morty would do great in an active household with a family that will work on training. He’s such a sweet boy and his biggest joy is to get comfortable with and love his humans. Morty is so very bonded with his brother Rick, which can be see by the fact that the traits shown in their stories are almost identical. It would be best for them to be adopted together. They need a kind family that understands their love for each other and is willing to adopt them both.
