Hello everyone!!! My name is Brock, but you can call me Rocky. Now, you may want to get some tissues out, because what I'm about to say may make you sad. I don't want to make you sad, but I've got to do whatever it takes to find my next furever home. Yes, I said "next" home.
Friends, sometimes humans realize that they must do what's best for everyone in the family. Being a good human to your four-legged family members sometimes means having to say good-bye. I admit, it will be a bit tough for me to get used to new humans since I've been with my current ones since they rescued me when I was just two years old. They are such wonderful humans though; I have faith they won't let me go to anyone who doesn't live up to their legacy. Okay, enough sad talk! Dry those tears! Let me tell you a bit about me so you realize I'm what's been missing in your life!
I am a cuddly, snuggly guy who likes to burrow into the covers and show you just how much I love you. I've been great with the tiny humans in my current home; I let them crawl all over me because I'm a nice guy like that. I like all dogs my size, but I'm going to be honest with you and tell you that I don't particularly care for smaller dogs or for those sharp clawed weird things that go "meow." They creep me out a little bit, to be honest. All that weird purring and moodiness.....it's just strange. Also, I am so well-behaved that you don't have to crate me when you leave me alone in the house. I will take care of everything and it will be just as you left it when you return. I told you; I'm a nice guy! Anyhow, I must be honest yet again and tell you that I have a bit of anxiety about finding my new furever home. I am a very good boy, but I'm smart enough to know that not many humans want to let an older fella like me into their hearts. Please don't be like everyone else. Consider letting me burrow under your covers and deep into your heart. I can't wait to meet you!
