My story

Meet Rocket, a 1 1/2-2 year old male Belgian Malinois/GSD mix who lives up to his name! He is a high energy working breed, and is looking for a loving and experienced forever home. In the right home he will thrive and be a wonderful companion!

Rocket is as smart as a whip and quick to respond to corrections. So long as he gets enough exercise and stimulation, he can be left alone in a secure yard or indoors without getting into anything. Rocket has a lot of energy that he needs help channeling in the right ways, as typical working breeds do. Rocket has been taught to run with a bike and would love to run along side his owner while they go for a bike ride! He's still learning the right/left/stop commands but is making good progress with them. He would make a great hiking or running partner as well! He will require a GSD or Malinois experienced home, that knows how to train, exercise and work with the breed.

Rocket sleeps soundly through the night. He'll play fetch with a ball and loves to play really intense tug of war. He's already picked up a bit of scent training, with truffle oil being the targeted scent. He's most comfortable inside by far and prefers to play and hang out indoors, but he has made a lot of progress with his confidence outside, and will play in the yard for a while now before asking to go back inside.

Rocket is potty trained, microchipped, UTD on shots and neutered. Rocket can be reactive around other dogs and needs to the only dog in the home. With training and structure, over time his reactivity could improve. Due to his energy and breed, he needs a home with kids over 16 or adult only. No cats.

You can apply for Rocket on our website. His adoption fee is $350.

More about this rescue

Forever Home Dog Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. We receive dogs from owner surrenders and overcrowded shelters. All of the dogs are housed in private, loving foster homes or a kennel in the greater Seattle area. We assess their behaviors and health and help them relax during their transition to a forever home. The dogs remain in foster care or in our kenneling facility until they are adopted. All of the dogs visit our vet for a health screening, are spayed or neutered, microchipped and are current on routine vaccinations.

Forever home dog rescue is not a shelter and thus you cannot see the dogs without an appointment.

We need foster homes! Thinking about adopting a dog, but not sure yet about which breed or if you're ready for the long-term commitment? Consider becoming a foster parent. A foster dog placement can be anywhere from two weeks to several months. We provide any dog supplies you may need and cover all necessary medical costs for your foster dog. You provide the love and attention and bring the dogs to adoption events at least twice per month.

Interested? Send us an email at and we'll send you a foster application. It's lots of fun and you will meet lots of dogs and other people who love dogs.
