Meet Rocky, the ice cube chewer

Rocky is a big, mushy guy who weighs about 80 lbs. He is great with people and gets along with other dogs. However, he does not like little dogs. He protects his food dish so he might be best as an only dog or fed separately with treats being given separately. He is neutered, current on all vaccinations, microchipped and about 8 years old. He came in as a stray, abandoned at a gravel pit. He was evaluated by Jill Haffley, a trainer in Colorado Springs. She says he needs a dominant person who will let him know he is under his/her control. She said he is a nice dog and very adoptable to the right person.

One Saturday at the Petco adoption event, Rocky got pretty bored in his kennel. He had a blanket under him. He tore a hole in it and poked his head through. He had made himself a poncho.

Aileen had an old hoodie, which she hadn't washed before she gave it to Rocky. She thought he might have a great time shredding it. Rocky did not. He spread it out under him to lie on and never shredded it. He must have smelled the human scent and wanted to be with Aileen.

He would be a great hiking, running partner. He might even pull a sled.

His adoption fee is $150.

He is available at our shelter near San Luis on any day by appt. Or in Colorado Springs on any Sat. 5020 N. Nevada Petco University Village. Please call ahead to ensure that he has a spot on the doggie bus. 719-587-9663 (WOOF).
