Meet Rocky! A distinguished older gentleman, poor Rocky has yet to find his happy ending and is so ready to live out his days in the comfort and security of a loving family! Rocky is low key kinda guy that is happy to go along with whatever it is you are doing. He loves to nap (he has an adorable snore), go for long walks and stop to smell the roses. Like, all of the roses! If you enjoy long, sauntering walks through the park or woods, Rocky is the boy for you!
His ideal home is with an experienced family that has a lot of love and patience to give. Unfortunately, Rocky has not always has known the touch of a loving hand and as such, he is looking for a family that understands the need to ensure his personal space is respected. Once you have earned Rocky’s trust though, he is a loyal and friendly boy that does appreciate a good scratch or cuddle.
Rocky’s ideal home is with a quiet and low key individual or couple and no children. He has in the past tested well with cats, but would prefer to be the only dog in the home.
Rocky does show some signs of arthritis and would benefit from a daily glucosamine supplement. He knows his basic commands, is house trained when consistent potty breaks are provided, and he walks well (albeit slowly!) on a leash. Rocky thrives under the “nothing in life is free” philosophy which means that he must earn his resources (food, love, toys, treats) with obedience. His new family should be willing to continue on with his training. To ensure a successful adoption, Rocky’s adoption fee will be donated towards one-one-one training sessions for the right family.
