Rockie says
I'm not a throw away dog
people have thrown me away
people that said
OHHH I love you so much
then just dump him off
excuse after excuse
I want a true real dog lover
I won't dissapoint you
but please be patient with me until I'm settled in
and LOVE me as I am
and I will love you for who you are

Country home not needed but quiet neighborhood outskirts of town ideal or country
no hang ups about city noises etc

Rockie is a cute loving little guy, he would make a super companion to a younger retired couple or person
in the country or outskirts of town

He is looking to be his happy self with a happy person that will accept him for who he is without high expectations

He's around 9 to 10 yrs young around 30 pounds loves to eat  yummy good quality food and treats

Rockie has a wirey coat that's not really rough to the touch but not soft either
nice silver-grey/black/white/brown color easy to groom
it's long right now but can be cut short

He does shed but daily brushing will keep that low as well as cutting the coat shorter

Rocket man has a great smile and wagging tail, love and loyalty for the people he knows well
he will trust the right dog loving folks that don't rush him

he's looking for respect and will give that back once bonded
  he will give kisses and jump in your lap and be your happy companion

Once bonded he will allow you to do anything

Rockie is great in car and jumps right in
even a truck that's quit higher then a car but we try to lift him in anything high
prefer a car to make his life easier versus a high truck or a ramp

A 30 minute walk few times a week some throwing of his stuffed toys following you around while you garden or on your property a soft comfy bed and a loving person with a big lap to fit this 30 pounder on it or next to you on the couch watching tv getting petted is what he's looking for

He loves to play with his plush toys which he has many and loves to own many
He is good on a leash never pulls loves to stop sniff and pee like most male dogs
will bark at some passing dogs if allowed will not do it with me as I'm alpha and don't allow it
he's been pretty good about it

I walk him on a 16 foot retractible leash when we go hiking and not near anyone or anything
he loves that freedom
knows basic commands like sit, down, wait, come, leave it, and heel and even shakes
but don't expect him to do that the first day or first month in a new home
unless you are a true dog whisperer

He only barks appropriately and never excessively.
Never destructive and never potties in house.

He is a sweet, lovely dog and is easy to take care of for the person that is in charge and a good gentle leader that knows
if you want respect you must give respect

Rokkie does not need a lot of words or loud crazy commands
he will respond well with quieter commands body language and your energy
he wants a easy going person that's not looking to change and mold him into their expectations

We have many details about Rokkie which we will be happy to share with an approved applicant
we will also be available for the rest of his life
  any questions you may have 

We like to stay part of his life by getting updates now and then more so while settling in
expect the settling in period to be at least 6 months
as it is with most dogs
most folks are not aware of that and believe it only takes a week

We want Rockie in the right home where he will be welcome
accepted for who he is
very loved and cared for
We love him very much and want a happy ending for both him and his new caretaker

Give him a chance and you will never forget him he will leave a big mark on your heart

Rokkie will come with his toys, harness, neutered and chipped, Rabies current, flea free, on monthly heartworm prevention, he had his teeth cleaned about 2 years ago they look very good
his eyes are clear and alert
he takes a quality daily multi vitamin with probiotic and joint support

adoption fee is only $50.00 plus we give you a year supply of HW prevention (A $100.00 value), a DVD with his pics and videos (a $15.00 Value) for the right matching screened home
comes with his nice harness, free vet exam, one free month of pet insurance, tons of good email books, doggie goodie bag
our lifelong help if need be

we are looking for a great match a lonely person for a lonely boy

About Manhatten Animal Rescue Sanctuary

About Our Rescue Group...

Communities are in economic crisis and innocent animals are facing the consequences with their lives. We try to provide some resources to alleviate the increasing abandonment and neglect rates. Our efforts are mitigated because of the over population of our domestic animals and the lack of education on the crisis of not spaying and neutering your animals.
