Hi! I am Rocky.
I'm just one year old and still quite the puppy. I have lots of puppy energy and curiosity, and I'm looking for a family who can help me channel this energy into playtime and fun, and help me learn what I'm allowed to chew on!
I stayed in a foster home over the long holiday weekend and got a touch of what home life was like. I was a bit nervous about being in a new place, but I did find some things that I loved: Toys, Treats, being close to people, and soft places to lay...I especially like it when I can cuddle up to a person in a soft spot, like a coach or bed!
People tell me I am quite the striking, handsome dog. I am very tall and thin with the longest, leanest legs you've ever seen. All I have to say about that is that sometimes I'm not too graceful. I just haven't gotten used to how big my body has gotten yet!
I still have a lot of learning and growing to do. Could you be the family I grow up with?
