Rocky's Info...

I am in need of an experienced adopter and not good with kids.

Rocky's Story...
Age: 6/1/2014

Personality: Shy but warms up (does not like to be touched but will eventually allow, etc), Energetic, Nervous, Rocky tends to be a finger/hand biter- he gets very excited for food/treats and does not politely take food from hands.

Favorite treats: Honey!!! As well as meal worms, white chocolate chips and yogurt drops.

Favorite toys and activities: Rocky loves to run in his wheel at night. He also loves to search for hidden treats in his puzzle feeders.

Potty trained: No. Usually only potties in cage.

BFF: Mo. They occasionally squabble over food so be sure to always have 2 food bowls and other prized resources to avoid and potential conflict.

Other species pet has been exposed to and reaction: Has not met other species besides gliders.

Health concerns: None.

Behavioral concerns: Rocky is in our Trust Training Program due to mouthiness and shyness and is making great progress! Learn more about our Trust Training Program here: http://www.mnpocketpetrescue.org/trust-training

Other notes: Mo and Rocky were introduced to each other in August, and were able to be in the same cage as each other in September. Mo is a little food aggressive and will start fights with Rocky if he is worried about food. I always give Mo a food dish first, then put a second food dish on another level for Rocky. Mo always needs treats first, if he knows you have a treat and he thinks Rocky is going to get it, he again will start a fight. Sometimes they can eat out of the same bowl, other times not. This is something that will need to be monitored and worked on. They may not be the best pair of gliders for first time glider owners.

Our adoption process and fees can be found on our website here: http://www.mnpocketpetrescue.org/#!process/ca4l

We absolutely DO NOT SHIP ANIMALS! Please do not ask.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rocky, a St. Paul Sugar Glider was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Sugar Glider for sale in St. Paul, or seeking a Sugar Glider from a breeder in St. Paul.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in St. Paul already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a St. Paul breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Sugar Glider breeders who help with Sugar Glider rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in St. Paul paves the way for another one to be saved.
