Rocky's Story...
Meet Rocky! This friendly boy came to the Steele County Humane Society from an impound where he was soon going to be euthanized unless rescued. With the help of a wonderful community advocate and our Steele County Humane Society, Rocky has been given another chance to find his forever family!

Rocky is a long-legged, lean dog who is 40 pounds and is approximately 5 1/2 years old. We are not certain of his breed, but our vet thought he could be a hound/lab mix. Rocky's favorite thing to do is cuddle and be with his people. He has so much love to give! He would probably prefer to be the only dog in the home, although he is currently doing well with the other dog in the foster home. Rocky isn't the biggest fan of a kennel and loves to be with his people much of the time. He is housetrained and loves to go for walks. Rocky does seem to have some anxiety and protectiveness issues, but we are working on building his confidence and providing reassurance. Rocky needs positive reinforcement to know he and his caretakers are safe. Rocky will need to go to someone who is very responsible, patient, and dog-savvy to help him adjust and succeed. He will need a home with no young children.

Rocky is vet-checked, neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, and microchipped. Call Amanda at 218-290-7289 to meet Rocky in his foster home. His adoption fee is $200. (AG)

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rocky, a Owatonna Hound (Unknown Type)/Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Hound (Unknown Type)/Labrador Retriever for sale in Owatonna, or seeking a Hound (Unknown Type)/Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Owatonna.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Owatonna 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 Owatonna 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 Hound (Unknown Type)/Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Hound (Unknown Type)/Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Owatonna paves the way for another one to be saved.
