Meet Rocky

Howdy - I am Rocky, a sweet, pretty mellow senior shepherd looking for my retirement home. At age 10, the people I thought loved me up and discarded me in a shelter. I am still not sure why, cause I always tried to do what they asked and to not do what they didn't like. A little about me: - I like my crate and am quiet and not at all fussy in it. - I don't jump on people or get on the furniture or chew people stuff (but I sure do like a pup toy with stuffing to tear out; a squeaker is a plus). - I like a good scratch now and then, but I promise I will not be all in your face for one. - I sure do like car rides. - My foster homes have included (older dog savvy) children and other dogs and a couple cats, and I have done fine with all. - I am in good shape for the shape I am in and am not currently on any Rx other than my heartworm meds and a joint supplement, non Rx. Sometimes I get a little hitch in the giddyup, so while a couple of steps are fine, I don't think I would do well with stairs on a regular basis. - I sure enjoy a little spot outdoors to soak up some rays and commune with nature, I do not need a huge yard to run in, cause the only running I do anymore is in my sleep. - I am ok with the leaf blower next to me, but sometimes certain sounds can make me anxious, like thunderstorms. I don't destroy anything or run, but I will pace. - I use a doggie door when I need to go outside to potty. Foster Mom says I gotta tell you ALL the stuff. My bark is BIG and DEEP. Sometimes I bark at the birds. My food manners leave a lot to desire. I never learned how to be polite, so I grab at treats. I'm not ugly about food; Mom pets me while I am eating, but she thinks it would best for me to not live where young uns/toddlers are carrying or eating food that I might be tempted to grab. I hope you like what I bring to the table. If so, please complete an adoption app and maybe we can have a meet and greet.

We are unable to answer every email. If you are interested in our pups, please fill out an application and we will contact you. Thank you for your patience and understanding while we receive quite a few applications on our dogs and have to match each one carefully for their safety and what we feel will the best fit for the pup.
