Rocko's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Rocko's Story...
This is Rocko. He's a one year old pooch that was surrendered to the shelter because his family was moving and couldn't take him with them. Rocko is a gentle boy that likes kids but they should probably be a little older and other dogs, but is not fond of cats. He's young but already knows commands such as sit, down, high 5, roll over and speak. Rocko's favorite pastimes are playing in water, going on walks and playing with kids. He's cautious of new people but not aggressive. Rocko loves bread as his favorite treat. Big Rock has a sweet demeanor and would make a wonderful pet for any loving family as long as they don't have cats. Rocko has a preference for men.
If you have kids and/or another dog in your family and are interested in adopting a Friendship dog please bring them with you for a meet and greet. No appointment is necessary. Stop by anytime during regular business hours.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rocko, a Elyria German Shepherd Dog/Chow Chow dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a German Shepherd Dog/Chow Chow for sale in Elyria, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog/Chow Chow dog from a breeder in Elyria.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Elyria already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Elyria breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even German Shepherd Dog/Chow Chow breeders who help with German Shepherd Dog/Chow Chow rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Elyria paves the way for another one to be saved.
