Rocky is a handsome male model!
He knows how to work the camera with his 'give me all the treats' look. He struts around with his paws out, almost like a trained dancer and always holds his head up high. Not to mention he loves to give out kisses. He knows how to work a room!
He has a very calm demeanor in his kennel and enjoys being the only dog, but has lived with a smaller dog. It is unknown how he would do with cats.
Rocky is also a member of our RuffTail Runner program and loves to go out on the trail. He's a great dog for an active person. He has tested positive for heartworm, which is a treatable condition. The cost of the treatment is included in his adoption fee. You can read more about heartworm here: http://www.austinpetsalive.org/heartworms/
Come meet this lovable guy today but be prepared to meet those 'puppy dog' eyes of his as they will make you fall in love.
And remember, all APA adoptions come with free behavior assistance through APA's behavior team. And when you adopt a dog from APA, you are saving not one, but two lives - the life of the dog you're bringing into your home, and the next dog APA can save in the adopted dog's place.
