Don't let those grey whiskers on that beautiful chocolate brown face fool you. Rocky is an energetic, lively, really fun, friendly dog who thrives on playing fetch. In fact, we have decided that "Fetch" may well be his middle name. Rocky will catch a tennis ball in a flying leap and quickly return it to you, ready to go again. He is very cute walking nicely on his leash with said tennis ball in his mouth. He will even relax, and maybe even nap, with a ball in his mouth. If you sit in the grass with him, he will toss the ball in your lap and then lie down beside you. Rocky was an owner surrender with another dog because the family was moving. It was reported that he is glad to see other dogs, and lived and played happily with cats. He also lived with children and liked to engage them in a game of guessed it, fetch! He absolutely loves to swim (he's a very fast swimmer), and he also likes to catch tennis balls that are thrown into the water. He knows many commands including "sit," "stay," "come," "roll over," and (not surprisingly) "fetch the newspaper." Rocky has some arthritis, but does very well taking a supplement. He did well when left alone as he was allowed to stay outside in a fenced yard and he always knows to "do his business" outside. It is suggested that, if he needs to stay alone inside, he would benefit from a crate initially because he may chew unacceptable items if he gets lonely. Rocky has just won the heart of anyone who has interacted with him at the shelter. We just can't say enough good things about him. Come in and meet this terrific dog who could add so much to your family and would love to have a forever home.
