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.

If you are interested in giving Rocky the family home he’s never known, please fill out an application at http://www.fetchandreleash.ca/dog-adoption/.

About Fetch & Releash

About Our Rescue Group...

We at Fetch & Releash believe every dog deserves a second chance regardless of age, breed, background, health and/or behavioural issues. Through our network of volunteers, foster homes, trainers, and veterinarians, we work hard to find our dogs the loving forever home they deserve.

Fetch & Releash was established in 2016 with a mission of saving homeless dogs. We are 100% volunteer run.

Our dogs come from a variety of different situations and locations such as pounds/shelters, strays, and surrendered pets - both locally and abroad. We provide our dogs with the best care and a chance to find their forever homes by placing them with loving and caring volunteer foster parents. In order to prevent further over-population, all pets are spayed or neutered, age and health permitting.

As a completely volunteer-based organization, we are only able to find our pets their forever homes with the help of our volunteers and donors. Visit fetchandreleash.ca to learn more about volunteering, fostering or donating.

Our Adoption Process...

To adopt one of our dogs, please fill out an application at fetchandreleash.ca. Although we do our best to reply to all inquiries within 48 hours, please remember we are a 100% volunteer based organization, and many of us have full time jobs outside of rescue. We appreciate your patience.

Once your application has been received, a Fetch & Releash volunteer will contact you to set up a time to speak over the phone. The phone call usually takes about 30-45 minutes. Our priority is to ensure the fit is right for both you and the dog, so ask as many questions as you would like! After the phone interview, we will reach out to your personal and veterinarian references (if applicable), and your landlord (if applicable).

If we determine that you are a potential fit for the dog you applied for, you will then be granted a private meet and greet with the dog. If after the meet and greet, you would like to proceed with adoption, a Fetch & Releash volunteer will then contact you to arrange a home visit.

The adoption committee will then review your completed application and make a final decision.
