After twelve wonderful years, this solid gold boy has lost his owner to assisted living. Rocky wants to give his heart and soul to someone who will take him home and love him forever. This sweet and adorable southern gentleman is so very trusting and lovable. His easygoing style and peaceful demeanor show that he was well loved by his owner. He needs you to get your application in today so don’t delay. He wants to find his ‘fur’ever home as soon as possible!
His endearing style, of senior play as he shuffles from one leg to the other and wags his tail, shines through. When you come home he is so happy that he talks to you and he will also let you know when it is time to eat. Rocky loves to be at your side and will follow you around. When you are outside together – if he loses sight of you, he will bark as if to say “where are you”?
He is independent but likes to know that you are there. His foster parents report that he gravitates to his foster dad but loves everyone including his foster canine sister. He often looks for her to make sure that she is there too. Of course, this handsome guy does not require isolation or a crate and he advises you when it is time to do his business outside. He is wise and experienced and so there isn’t anything that he seems to fear.
Rocky knows his commands like sit, but it takes him a little bit of time as sometimes his arthritis gets in the way. Smooth floors and tile can be a bit challenging for his senior hips, but his Rimadyl medication helps him and he always tries to give you his paw for a handshake. He loves to walk with you but he much prefers short exploratory excursions rather than road warrior marathons.
He knows that he has a few lumps and bumps and a cataract in one eye, but they are no trouble or worry. He is snuggly and curious and brave all at the same time. Always ready to rock and roll when it’s time for a ride, Rocky gets in and out of the car all on his own. This guy loves to sniff around and carefully explore the grounds.
It’s that southern gentleman style that melts hearts and makes Rocky so precious. He is looking for a comfy and caring family who he can love and depend on and who will want him for always.
