Rocky  D5153

Sweetie Rocky (watch my video) was rescued from a distant shelter along with 3 other pups on 6/2/22. He is friendly, cuddly and playful. Rocky loves playing with the other pups at his foster home.  Rocky is smart and super well trained.

Update from his foster home: Rocky is basically the phrase "I'm up for anything!" in the form of a dog. Want to go on a week long adventure filled with rigorous hikes? Rocky is right there with you. Want to snuggle up on a rainy day to watch a movie? Rocky is right there with you! He wants to be everyone's best buddy and will accompany you with whatever activity you want to do!

Training: Rocky knows basic obedience such as leash manners, impulse control around doors and food, sit, down, stay, heel, place, and recall.  He also knows a few cute tricks and his foster home has started doing AKC scent work with him, he loves to use his nose!

Drive Level: Rocky is a medium food driven and low toy driven dog. He loves to do fun training sessions and learn new tricks.

Activity Level: Rocky is a medium energy dog. He loves to go on adventures and runs, as well as play in the yard and he's perfectly content with snuggling and napping after a nice walk!

Crate Trained: Rocky is crate trained. He eats, sleeps and naps in his crate without complaint. As long as he is getting his physical and mental fulfillment, Rocky is very content in his crate.

Grooming: Rocky has been desensitized to grooming and behaves very well for baths, blow dryers, brushing, nail trimmings and teeth and ear cleanings. Rocky is a heavy shedder. His foster home brushes him 3-4 times a week and bathes him every other week. He will require a forever home prepared to deal with shedding and brushing!

Other Dogs: Rocky is a very polite and friendly dog.  He gets along with dogs of all sizes and temperaments.  He gives and receives body language cues very well.

Cats: Rocky has not been tested with cats. His foster home has seen him exhibit prey drive with other smaller animals.

General Behavior: In public, Rocky is neutral to his surroundings. He has not shown any signs of reactivity or aggression. If Rocky's physical and mental needs are not fulfilled, he can become destructive. Rocky is a very affectionate dog.  He absolutely loves to snuggle up with people.
