When found, Rocky was quite emaciated and appeared to be a little roughed-up at first but his wounds have healed and he's easily putting on some much needed weight. Now he loves to go for walks and runs with his new canine friends, car rides, taking baths and playing in the yard with his bones & toys! Rocky is house-broken & crate trained. He's quite calm & loving on his own, he likes to be everywhere with his person. Rocky has been working on his training & socialization with other dogs as part of ProjectPet with ACCT. He has come a long way & seems to be selective in his choices of other dogs for walking partners/playmates. With the right match & continued training he might be willing to share his family with another dog. He would no doubt love to be the only one getting love & attention in a single pet household as well & he would give all of that love right back! He is friendly & loving with people, including children.
Rocky is currently looking for his forever home and will no doubt make a devoted friend to someone who has as much love to give as he does!
