ROCKY / M / 14 mos / Coonhound
Meet Rocky! Although very much loved, this gorgeous boy was surrendered to our rescue because his family is no longer able to provide him with the care he needs and they wanted a better life for him.
Rocky is a high energy, intelligent boy that loves to meet new people and dogs. His favorite 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. He would also make an ideal running partner.
Rocky is looking for an active home, especially one that enjoys the great outdoors as much as he does. He plays nice with other dogs in the dog park and would probably do well with another k9 sibling. Rocky is afraid of cats and looking for a cat free home.
In his previous home, Rocky did not learn his place in the pack or what it means to have boundaries. Although Rocky is an easy going boy outside of the home, inside of the home Rocky likes to think he is the boss. He does not always like being told what to do and will voice his displeasure by barking, growling or nipping. Rocky also does show some guarding behaviour with his prized possessions (bones, treats, toys).
Rocky is extremely intelligent and eager to please though, so in terms of training, the sky is the limit! With the right family and with a commitment to training, we firmly believe that Rocky can become the good boy we know he is. He is house and crate trained.
Rocky is looking for an experienced foster or foster to adopt family. Preferably one with older kids (14+) or no kids at all. He needs a family that is willing to be the leader of the home and help Rocky to learn his place in the pack.
If you are interested in giving Rocky the second chance he so deserves by fostering or adopting him, please contact us email@example.com.
