Rocky was found abandoned but tied to a tether in Lampasas, Texas. He was rescued by neighbors and brought to a vet in Austin. Rocky was emaciated, covered with ticks and fleas, and had both heart worms and intestinal worms. Those days are gone and now Rockey is one handsome boy with a beautiful shiney black coat! He is happy and healthy and shows no signs of his earlier life!
Estimates put him at 5 years of age. He is very long, still skinny, and has legs just a bit longer than usual. “Longer legs” equals a super-jumper and runner. Rocky will chase and catch tennis balls for an hour at a time. This has become the high point of his evening when he and his buddy Ellie chase balls. Rocky is very affectionate and loves attention.
Please consider this loving and very grateful boy!
