adoption process and application
slideshow and videos on our site
approved adopter picks up here
Rokkie is a cute loving little guy, he would make a super companion to a younger retired couple or person specially if you live outside the city limits or country
a quiet neighborhood may work too
once you apply we will know

he's such a wonderful loyal boy, once he has fully bonded with his people he will be very loyal super loving and a easy dog to an experienced owner that knows how to be a good gentle leader

Rokkie has a longer coat it's wirey like that of a Schnauzer has many colors from grey/white/black/brown
and he does shed but if groomed daily to a minimum
he has a beautiful coat specially after a bath
it's long right now but can be groomed or shaved down

we all have quirks so do dogs it's no biggy it makes the dog who they are looking for someone that understands that
were looking for someone that truly knows how to bond with a dog and not trying to convert a dog into something they want but accept the dog for who he is
work with any faults and or arrange their own life around the dog
that's what a true dog lover does
if that's you we love to hear from you
looking to be his happy self with a happy person a person that loves to talk baby talk or in a higher pitch happy sound he seems to love that with good happy energy about themselves
Rocket man or rokko rolo or the rock as I call him when he has a day out adventuring
is not used to folks hovering over him to pet so not looking for super social folks
more of home bodies with little daily foot traffic
inside the home
he's fine being in public doesnt care about noise, cars bikes strollers etc he has no fear issues

Rokkie is already trained and listens very well, he knows many words and commands 

He's about 10 healthy yrs young with an alert mind and clear eyes
his teeth are in great shape too a tad chubby loves to eat but daily walks will help that
has some minor joint stiffness and takes joint support as well as probiotics with enzyme daily
he looks and acts very healthy
can easily get in and out of a car
doesn't jump out of a car unless asked
super in car
 he's fixed and chipped
he will come with his harness and toys and our lifelong support
a free month of pet insurance
free vet exam coupon and 12 months of HW prevention
and will be freshly bathed
we are not going to clip his coat at this time
Rocket man has a great smile and wagging tail, love and loyalty for the people he knows well

He does great at the self serve bathing station where I give him a bath
he can easily get a
bath in the tub as well
he enjoys the comforts in life a soft bed and good food
He's not a barker nor hyper but loves to hike and play on off during the day a bit but an hour a day total should be fine if that

30 minute walk a day is about all he needs but could go an hour too in the colder months not when it's hot out, heat is not great for older dogs
or a few times a week short walks or just car rides with going out a few minutes here and there is fine for him too
He loves to play with his plush squirrel toys

He is good on a leash never pulls
I walk him on a 16 foot retractible leash when we go hiking 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 you meet him as he has to know you trust you and feel comfy first which with the right dog whisperer should be quickly

We want him with someone that does not have high expectations and accepts Rokkie as Rokkie without trying to change him but change their own selves around him the way it should be
any real dog lover would agree to that
I know Rokkie very well and happy to chat with an approved applicant giving any details about him his past his quirks etc

He is an excellent watchdog and only barks appropriately and never excessively. 
Never destructive and never potties in house.
Rokkie and myself get along wonderful
he knows I'm the leader without me having to say much
looking for a person that is a true leader
that does not need to use loud voices nor physical force
If you are a lonely person looking for a well trained quiet sidekick
know how to handle a dog with respect
don't have people coming and going all the time
live in the country or outskirts of town
possibly a quiet neighborhood
with a fenced yard
no other animals 
dog experienced
a natural fair good leader
looking for a smart dog as a companion
then please apply

We want Rokkie to live out his life and be happy but must be the right match
someone committed as we do not want Rokkie to ever loose another home
that's why we will be asking many questions and expect the same from you

we want a happy ending for both dog and human
Rokkie has plenty of life left in him many good years of memories to build
Are you the one he's been waiting for?
adoption fee of only $50 to super matching home , homecheck, vet references, fenced yard

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.
