Meet Rocket - updated 11/8


One volunteer walks Rocket each time she comes to the shelter. She says he is a very sweet guy who loves to be petted and loves and appreciates dog treats.
He is easy to remove from his kennel, and after his walk, he walks back to the gate and easily returns to his kennel. He is easy to pet and touch and easy to handle. He walks nicely on a leash, but will pull forward when he gets excited..
He is affectionate and enjoys running, playing with dog toys, being close to people. Even when playing in the yard, he comes up to check in with his person. He is eager to learn and already responds to "sit" and "paw." He is an active fellow and does jump when he is playing, but stops when told to. He's a perfect playmate for someone who is active. He is a dog who you can touch anywhere, and he doesn't mind.
Rocket passed his dog test and has been good with other dogs at the shelter.
He is fine with cats and housetrained.

Rocket is 3 years old and was adopted from another shelter a year ago. He was surrendered to the shelter as his owner is stationed overseas and can't bring him. Here is what we were told about Rocket by his owner: Rocket had been an inside dog and can live in an apartment. He listens well, but does have some energy. He is housetrained, good with other dogs, good with children of all ages and seems OK with cats. He rarely ever barks, loves squeaky toys. He is kennel trained or slept in the bed at night. Rocket has some allergies, and he is being treated for them.

The Jefferson Parish Animal Shelter adoption fee is $67. The adoption fee includes vaccinations, mandatory spay/neuter, heartworm test, and microchip.

To find if this dog is still available for adoption, please stop by the shelter. Please provide the ID number at that time.
