Rokkie is a cute loving little guy, he would make a super companion to a younger retired couple or person
he's such a wonderful loyal boy, once he has fully bonded with his people he will be very loyal super loving and a easy dog to an experienced owner that knows how to be a good gentle leader
Rokkie has a med. to long coat it's wirey like that of a Schnauzer has many colors from grey/white/black/brown
even when it's cut he will look a tad scruffy it's long now and easily brushed to look neat and clean he loves to be brushed very lightly and once he knows and trusts you
no different than any human we would not want some stranger brushing our hair etc
we all have quirks so do dogs it's no biggy it makes the dog who they are
looking to be his happy self with a happy person a person that loves to talk baby talk or in a higher pitch happy sound he seems to love that with good happy energy about themselves
Rocket man or rokko rolo or the rock as I call him when he has a day out adventuring
needs the right intro with strangers as he's not used to people coming and going
as his prev. owners missed the change to socialize him as a pup but he's fine being in public doesnt care about noise, cars bikes strollers etc he has no fear issues
a country home will suit him best that's where he's fostered now with an older couple
Rokkie is not a lot of work at all he's already trained and listens very well, he knows many words and commands at his age

He's around 9 yrs young with an alert mind and clear eyes
his teeth are in great shape
he looks healthy
a bit chubby loves to eat looking to walk more often
he's fixed and chipped
he will come with his harness and toys and our lifelong support
should that be wanted/needed
Rocket man has a great smile and wagging tail, love and loyalty for the people he knows well
Rokkie loves to go bye bye for car rides and is super jumping into even a higher truck but something lower would be preferred
he sleeps most of the time while traveling or eats treats
he enjoys the comforts in life a soft bed and good food
He's not a barker nor hyper but loves to hike and play on off during the day
30 minute walk a day is about all he needs but could go an hour too in the colder months not when it's hot out
he's a tad pudgy right now as the older fosters do not have the time to walk him
but instead he roams the large fenced yard which is fine for him too but he does like to get out in nature and explore
He loves to play with his plush squirrel toys
He is good on a leash never pulls
I walk him on a 16 foot retractible leash when we go hiking he loves that freedom 
knows basic commands like sit, down, wait, come, leave it, and heel and even shakes
but don't expect him to do that the first day you meet him as he has to know you trust you and feel comfy first
We want him with someone that does not have high expectations and accepts Rokkie as Rokkie without trying to change him but change their own selves around him the way it should be ant real dog lover would agree to that
I know Rokkie very well and happy to chat with an approved applicant giving any details about him his past his quirks etc

He is an excellent watchdog and only barks appropriately and never excessively. 
Never destructive and never potties in house.
Rokkie and myself get along wonderful
he knows I'm the leader without me having to say much
looking for a person that is a true leader
that does not need to use loud voices nor physical force
Rokkie seems to be more comfy meeting women though
he has been fine meeting a few men and he loves his foster dad
It's most likely just the energy that has to be right
as it is for most all dogs
If you are a lonely person looking for a well trained quiet sidekick
know how to handle a dog with respect
don't have people coming and going 
live in the country or outskirts of town
no other animals 
dog experienced
a natural fair good leader
looking for a smart dog as a companion
then please apply
We want Rokkie to live out his life and be happy but must be the right match
someone committed as we do not want Rokkie to ever loose another home
that's why we will be asking many questions and expect the same from you
If you shy away from the quirks above than you are most likely not the one
as a confidant leader will be just fine with that
knowing that no dog is perfect
at least we know what's needed and say so

You will also get a Free Vet exam coupon
a free month of pet insurance
our lifelong help if need be and to settle Rokkie in
we will be available until Rokkie has lived out his life
we want a happy ending for both dog and human
Rokkie has plenty of life left in him many good years of memories to build
small adoption fee to right matching home, homecheck, vet references, fenced yard

Our Adoption Process...

How our adoption process works:
First Step: E-mail us for a online application or see our website at

Second Step: Once we receive your application we will e-mail you back to let you know that we received it .
We will then review your application which can take about 2 days, once approved someone will contact you either by phone or e-mail.

Should you not get approved that does NOT mean you are not a suitable home, but that the dog you choose is not the best fit to your lifestyle or the dogs lifestyle.

We try to match dog and human as best as possible to not just have a happy ending but the dog will hopefully stay in that home "forever.
Third Step: To get approved your Vet references need to check out, meaning that you took prev. pets or current pets to the Vet for at least their Rabies shots, showing that you're a responsible pet owner.
Fourth Step: Once the Vet references check out we will set up a physical home check (or get pictures from you), someone will come to your home, check the fencing, place the dog will sleep, meet all family members, that is to assure us that the animal will be save and live happily ever after.
Fifth Step: Once the home check is approved, you can then come meet your "dream dog" and take him/her home with you, after signing adoption contract
paying the required adoption fee by either cash or check.
We always try to work as fast as possible as we know you are excited to get your new family member home. There will be times that we have family emergencies or are sick so the adoption process could be slowed a bit, we appreciate your patience!
