Rocky is a rock star! He is a really amazing little guy. Despite his adorable black eye and signature name, he is a lover not a fighter. He is 11 years of age, and is a Poodle mix that weighs approximately 4.7 kg (10 pounds). He is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, micro chipped and recently had a dental. He is non-shedding.
I am so surprised at how quiet he is. He will bark but as soon as you tell him to be quiet he settles down. Not only is he very, very smart - he wants to please. He scratches at the door when he wants to go out and waits patiently for you to answer his request. He is a bit nervous about trimming around his face and ears, but was very responsive to a patient persuasive clean up I gave him. I think a little trust building will go a long way to relieving his anxiety about being groomed. He likes to play and fetch a ball and skips like a little lamb when he is ready to romp. He gets along well with other gentle dogs and is ok around cats. This little fellow is looking for a calm and loving home for his golden years, and will make a loving and loyal companion.
