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 kristen.fetchandreleash@gmail.com.

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 fetchandreleash.ca to learn more about volunteering, fostering or donating.

Our Adoption Process...

To adopt one of our dogs, please fill out an application at fetchandreleash.ca. 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.

Our adoption fees are as follows:

The adoption fees for our dogs are as follows:

- A puppy 12 months of age and younger is $600.

- A dog 13 mos and up is $450.

- A bonded pair is $650.
