Funny characteristics: Rex has a unique personality. He likes things to be on his conditions.


Misc stories about their past etc.: Rex was adopted from the Kansas City Sheltie Rescue.  He does not have much of a tail.  Wish we knew the story behind that.  He is our 4th sheltie over the last 25 years. He lived with his sister Georgi (a mixed breed dog)  in Ames before moving to the East Village in 2017.  He loved rough housing with his sister Georgi. Georgi passed away in 2018 at 14 years old.  We are happy to bring Rex to DDD once a week to interact with his dogs friends!
