Update: Rocket has found every ball in the house and the yard, he is definitely ball obsessed.He might like to swim as he had no fear of the creek. He's not a huge fan of small dogs in his face, but is good playing with larger dogs. He is totally un-phased by the neighbor's cats that were far more interested in him than he was in them. He crates like a dream, barely a woof and sleeps there happily through the night. He is also an absolute lover, could he be your new love?
Update: Rocket is finally feeling better after recovering from an upper respiratory infection. He has gained weight and is up to 51 pounds. Still 10 more to go. He is definitely feeling frisky. He met a few other dogs at the vet's office, and all he wants to do is play. Don't you love his eyes?
