Meet Rocky He's a young playful dog looking for people who want to play, take walks, and snuggle. Rocky is Crate trained and will be good while his people are away at work. He gets along with other dogs and tolerates cats too! Rocky is looking for a home that has experienced dog owners who will be leaders and help curb some of his puppy behaviors he hasn't out grown yet. He is very smart, and with a little time and effort, he will learn how to be your perfect dog. Rocky loves to play games, like fetch, he loves sticks, ropes and balls, something fun to burn a little energy and exercise the cattle dog side of his brain. He would also excel at some form of specialty training, maybe disc golf or agility if his new people had the desire to teach him. Rocky would ideally like a fenced yard, nothing fancy, a standard chain link fence gives him the visual boundary he needs. Rocky would do best in a home with older children, or adults only because he needs them to have leadership and be consistent. His current foster home has visiting younger children and he is not aggressive, but Rocky just doesn't have the manners needed around young children. Rocky is looking for a special person or people who have some time and energy to give him the training he's missed, and then want to snuggle up for some relaxation and bonding time. Apply today to learn more and schedule a time to meet this handsome boy.

His foster parents are Rebecca P.    The adoption fee for Rocky is $225.

All Kalamazoo Animal Rescue dogs & puppies are spayed or neutered prior to adoption. Dogs have been heartworm tested and if appropriate (age and time of year) all dogs and puppies are given heartworm preventative. All are given medication to rid them of roundworms and checked and treated for fleas & ear mites, if needed. Dogs and puppies are given distemper vaccines and depending on how long the pet has been in foster care, additional distemper vaccine(s) may be necessary and the expense will be incurred by the adopter. Any canine over 4 months of age is brought current on the Rabies vaccine. Additional vet care may have been provided depending on the particular animal's needs. Dogs are individually priced as above.

Please note that we do not ship dogs and we cannot guarantee that a long trip to see a foster dog will result in an adoption or taking the dog home on that day.

It is in the best interest of pooch and owner to enroll in an obedience class soon after adoption. After all, you have a lot to learn about your new friend. The Kalamazoo Dog Training Club offers a discount to owners with newly adopted dogs. Enroll before any behavior problems start - you won't regret it!
