Meet Rocky, a dog who was truly given a second chance at life. This beautiful one-year-old pit/boxer mix was seized by animal control after being found extremely emaciated and weighing in at only 30 lbs. Since he was rescued, Rocky is now weighing a healthy 55 lbs. and is ready for his new beginning!
Despite the neglect he endured, Rocky adores people and being by your side, whether it be outside in the yard or on the couch! His big smile and wagging tail is guaranteed to light up any room. He loves everyone he meets, including other dogs. Rocky has a nice medium energy level but is also very much a clumsy and silly puppy. He would benefit from basic training.
Rocky is a very good boy and is working hard on crate training and is nearly house trained. He is easily corrected and is very food motivated – he already knows “sit” and is currently learning “wait.” He has demonstrated a bit of separation anxiety so adopters not gone long hours are highly preferred. Due to his size, Rocky would be best in a home with dog savvy children, preferably 10 years and up. A fenced yard is required and it must be 6ft. or higher because he’s a jumper.
His adoption fee is $350 and Rocky is up to date on vaccines, microchipped, heartworm negative, and neutered. If you are interested in adopting this handsome hunk, please complete the application at form.jotform.com/200883908893166. For questions, email [email protected]
