Talk about animal magnetism! Handsome hunk Rocky, with his beautiful brindle and white markings and soul-searching, inquisitive eyes, will flirt his way right into your heart. As companionable and charming as he is, however, he’s not a Love ‘em-and-Leave ‘em type guy. No, Rocky is playing for keeps. Both social and friendly, he prefers to get to know people gradually…but once he entrusts you with his heart his life-long loyalty will be unshakable! Rocky asks nothing less in return.
This young fellow is looking for a responsible and caring owner who will provide him with the structure and companionship he needs and craves. A highly sensitive canine, he can sometimes be independent and headstrong, so an experienced owner who can provide firm--never harsh—leadership which is fair and consistently followed by all members of the family will set him up for success.
A calm and extremely intelligent dog, Rocky learns quickly and has already mastered a few commands like sit and stay; he’s also pretty well-mannered on a leash, he likes learning new things, and he would enjoy and excel in obedience – this will also be a great way to establish leadership, form a strong trust bond with him, and reinforce canine good manners. Rocky also needs regular physical and mental activity to stay happy and healthy. Leashed walks, interactive outdoor activities, and adventurous outings shared with family members who he’ll be loyally devoted will meet most of this guy’s moderate exercise needs. A secure, fenced yard for outdoor romping and exploring would be an awesome bonus for him too.
Rocky is best suited as an indoor pet and companion for a home with a calm, low-active to moderately-active lifestyle and without unruly or active young children. As with all dogs, a meet-n-greet with any housemate dogs will be necessary to determine compatibility prior to adoption. Direct interaction with cats is unknown and cannot be fully assessed at the shelter at this time.
Come meet Rocky at Monroe County Animal Control located at 911 S. Raisinville Rd, Monroe, MI (just south of the fairgrounds). Kennel hours are Tuesday - Friday, 11:00 am - 3:30 pm; Saturday, 11:00 am - 2:30 pm; closed Sunday, Monday, and National Holidays.
For more information you can email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the shelter during business hours at 734-240-3125.
Monroe SPCA also offers microchips for dogs and cats adopted from Monroe County Animal Control for a fee of $15.00 at the time of adoption. Microchips are implanted between the dog’s shoulder blades and are a permanent form of identification. Microchips are registered to Monroe SPCA with adopters adding “new owner” information after adoption. If the dog is ever lost and slips his or her collar and tags, the microchip allows the finder to know who to contact when the dog is scanned for a microchip.
Even if you cannot adopt at this time, please consider making a donation to Monroe SPCA so we may continue saving, protecting, and improving the lives of homeless animals in Monroe County.
In addition to providing emergency medical treatment to animals who need it, Monroe SPCA, now, provides every dog at Monroe County Animal Control with basic preventative health care which includes flea preventative, deworming(s), DHPP vaccine and booster, and Heartworm Testing. If a dog tests positive for Heartworm, Monroe SPCA also provides that dog with Heartworm treatment. Dogs adoptable through Monroe County Animal Control have no adoption fee at this time (adopter’s pay a $10.00 application fee and $25.00 sterilization deposit payable to the County of Monroe); this Monroe SPCA Operational Support Program at Monroe County Animal Control is funded solely by monetary donations. We do not receive government funding, and we are not affiliated with or funded by Monroe County Animal Control, the HSUS, the ASPCA, or any other humane organization. Monroe SPCA is a 501c.3 non-profit organization, and we rely on the financial support and generosity of individuals and businesses in our community to conduct our daily operations and help animals. All donations to Monroe SPCA are tax-deductible.
