If you love Cane Corsos or large dogs in general, you will definitely fall for ROCKY! He is a super friendly guy who has never met a dog or human he doesn't like. His foster family includes 2 human children and 3 other dogs. He is wonderful with everyone. He is the largest dog in the home, but he isn't the boss and is totally ok with that. If another dog wants to play, ROCKY is always ready and willing to join the fun. He will also take correction and leave another pup alone if that pup isn't in the mood for horsing around. He does a great job entertaining himself with his toys.
As much as ROCKY enjoys playtime, he loves human cuddle time as much or more. He will curl up with you in the bed or on the couch and snuggle for hours on end. He is a giant lap dog. His sweet eyes and endless affection can make even your worst day happy.

ROCKY loves riding in the car and we think he would be a terrific jogging or hiking buddy. He does well in his crate while his foster family is at work, but sure is over the moon when they get home. This boy is definitely happiest with companionship from either a human or another doggie friend. ROCKY has spent time with toy breeds, large breeds, and everything in between. He attended dog daycare a few days and got an A+ report card. He is the perfect age of 1 year old: past the annoying baby puppy behaviors, but full of puppy curiosity and joy for life. ROCKY is sure to bless his forever family with a lifetime of loyalty and adoration.

ROCKY is neutered, microchipped, and up to date on all vaccinations.
His $300 adoption fee includes transport to the Nashville area.

All of our dogs start their journey in Memphis, Tennessee where they remain in loving foster families until they are adopted. Once adopted, they travel via one of our transport partners to their new forever homes. We use Alpha Dog Pet Transport for our New England, Nashville, and Knoxville adoptions ( and The Road Home Pet Transport for our Midwest adopters (

Breed selection is done in conjunction with two local vets and is not to be considered a guarantee but rather a well-educated decision from well qualified staff.

Due to the extremely high volume of inquiries we receive, we ask that you request, complete, and submit an application before asking additional questions. We try very hard to include all pertinent information in our bios. We are excited to help you find your new family member. However, Woof River is 100% volunteer operated. We want to spend our time saving dogs and assisting those adopters who have taken the time to complete an application. Thank you for understanding.

About WOOF RIVER ANIMAL RESCUE- Nashville Chapter

Our Adoption Process...

The first step is completing an adoption application. Once we have received a completed application, we will do our absolute best to process it in 5 business days or less.

If you are approved there will be an adoption contract, spay/neuter contract (if the puppy is too young to be altered at the time of adoption).

Adoption fees are $250 for the Memphis area, $300 for the Nashville area, and $450 for all other locations. The fees are the result of a base of $250 plus transport costs.

All adopters will be required to provide top notch routine care for their pet. Annual exams, vaccines, and heartworm tests along with year round heartworm and flea/tick preventative are mandatory. NO EXCEPTIONS!
