ROCKY / M / 14 mos / Coonhound

Meet Rocky! Although he is very much loved, Rocky was surrendered to our rescue because his family was not able to provide him with the attention and exercise he needs. He is an adorable, high energy, intelligent boy who’s good with other dogs and children. He’s also very friendly and loves to meet new people. No stranger-danger anxiety for this handsome boy!

Rocky’s favourite thing to do is PLAY. The more the better, but AT LEAST 1.5 hours a day. Short on players for your Ultimate Frisbee team? Rocky is the boy for you! He would be the perfect candidate for agility training, jumping through hoops, weaving through poles, and racing in and out of tunnels.

Rocky dreams of finding an active family that enjoys the great outdoors as much as he does. He would also prefer a family with a stay-at-home mom or dad or a k9 companion to keep him company while his family is at work. Rocky is not a fan of cats—they scare him, so a cat-free home is a must.

Rocky would benefit from some basic training and help with his manners. He is house and crate trained, but counter surfs for food and may chew on things that do not belong to him. He is extremely intelligent and eager to please though, so in terms of training, the sky’s the limit!

If you have the time and energy to devote to Rocky and give him his forever home, he will give you his heart, which is even bigger than his zest for play. Go to to fill out an application today!

About Fetch & Releash

About Our Rescue Group...

We at Fetch & Releash believe every dog deserves a second chance regardless of age, breed, background, health and/or behavioural issues. Through our network of volunteers, foster homes, trainers, and veterinarians, we work hard to find our dogs the loving forever home they deserve.

Fetch & Releash was established in 2016 with a mission of saving homeless dogs. We are 100% volunteer run.

Our dogs come from a variety of different situations and locations such as pounds/shelters, strays, and surrendered pets - both locally and abroad. We provide our dogs with the best care and a chance to find their forever homes by placing them with loving and caring volunteer foster parents. In order to prevent further over-population, all pets are spayed or neutered, age and health permitting.

As a completely volunteer-based organization, we are only able to find our pets their forever homes with the help of our volunteers and donors. Visit to learn more about volunteering, fostering or donating.

Our Adoption Process...

To adopt one of our dogs, please fill out an application at Although we do our best to reply to all inquiries within 48 hours, please remember we are a 100% volunteer based organization, and many of us have full time jobs outside of rescue. We appreciate your patience.

Once your application has been received, a Fetch & Releash volunteer will contact you to set up a time to speak over the phone. The phone call usually takes about 30-45 minutes. Our priority is to ensure the fit is right for both you and the dog, so ask as many questions as you would like! After the phone interview, we will reach out to your personal and veterinarian references (if applicable), and your landlord (if applicable).

If we determine that you are a potential fit for the dog you applied for, you will then be granted a private meet and greet with the dog. If after the meet and greet, you would like to proceed with adoption, a Fetch & Releash volunteer will then contact you to arrange a home visit.

The adoption committee will then review your completed application and make a final decision.
