Rocket is a 5 year old intact black male Lab who weighs 44 pounds. Rocket is a thin guy who was found as a stray. He did well meeting other dogs. He rode quietly in the car and is a bit shy but a very nice guy. We don't have any cat or kid history on him,Rocket is around 5 years old. He's very underweight and needs to gain some before he can be neutered. He weighs 44 pounds and should be around 60-65 pounds. E: Rocket comes from the country and has no exposure to big cities. Placement is limited to single family stand-alone homes in a suburban neighborhood, or rural area. Rocket is approved for kids ages 10+.

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?
