About Me

rocky rocky-run-1 rocky-3 rocky-2Rocky was adopted December 2015!

Rocky is a happy dog who loves to play. He is still very puppy-like, curious about everything and into exploring new spaces. He races around the backyard and wrestles with his foster brother, barking to get his attention, and swatting at him to get him to play. He’s very popular at the dogpark. He would enjoy having another young active dog in the house, so they can try to tire each other out! Because he is so exuberant, Rocky would be too much for kitties or senior dogs.

He enjoys spending time with people, too. He walks nicely with a harness and would probably be a good jogging companion. He’s great riding in the car, sticking his head out the window or just resting in the back seat. He’s very treat motivated, and should pick up new behaviors quickly. He’s great at ‘sit,’ and ‘down,’ and we’re working on ‘stay.’

Would you like him to stay with you? Come meet him at an adoption show and find out! And check him out on The Pet Show.
