Meet Rocketeer

Rocketeer is blasting off in search of a new home to call his own. He lived for 3 years with an elderly couple who have decided he needs more than they can provide.

With a guesstimated birthday in May 2019, Rocketeer weighs about 10 lb.

Rocketeer is very affectionate and loves to snuggle with his foster mom. He does well with the other dogs in his foster home after given time to acclimate. He likes to play chase-the-cat with one that will run, but the other cat doesn't tolerate any foolishness so Rocketeer leaves her alone.

Rocketeer is leash savvy and will crate. He will whine in his crate if his foster mom is nearby, but settles down when she has to leave. He's house-trained when kept on a regular schedule..

Roceteer isn't fond of riding in cars and will struggle initially because he doesn't want to be put in. Once inside, though, he calms down. He wants to go wherever his foster mom goes so has learned to tolerate traveling.


Whether dogs / puppies come in as strays or owner surrenders, we usually have to make our best guess as to birthdate and breed.

If adopted into a home with other animals, particularly cats, your new pet should be crated or secured when you're not available to supervise to insure a harmonious relationship.

A vet reference is required to confirm responsible pet ownership. Requirement is a minimum three year vet history documenting current / previous pets are spayed / neutered, kept up to date on core vaccinations, and on heartworm prevention. We suggest first time pet owners without a vet history look for an adult dog for companionship and to gain experience. Other rescues or your local government-run animal control agency may have different adoption requirements.

Adoption fee covers two vaccinations. Additional fees for 3rd puppy vaccination, refundable spay/neuter deposit, etc. may apply.

We are an all-volunteer, foster-based rescue. We receive no funding from agencies.
