Rocky is still waiting for his New Beginning!
Rocky is currently in foster in Bristol, Pennsylvania and he is looking for his forever home.
As told by Rocky! “My name is Rocky and I am an 8 year old, neutered senior boy and I weigh 75 pounds.
I was lucky to survive the NYC ACC not once, but twice! First I was adopted from there 5 years ago, but then my family of adults and teenagers could no longer keep me and brought my back there again 🙁 .
Thanks to AmsterDog, I was rescued and am now in foster with a family in PA. But, my foster family already has 2 dogs and 2 more also being fostered from the NYC ACC. This means I have to take turns with 4 other dogs to have outside time in the yard or on walks, and time to spend being around my foster family. Since I am most content to just ‘be’ in the presence of humans, I am sad that I have to spend so much time in my crate.
I am a good boy and have a lot going for me. I am housetrained (of course!), I walk excellent on the leash (no pulling), and I know a ton of commands including sit, stay, come, wait, down, leave it, and take it. I do not jump up on people unless invited; I wait for direction from my humans.
I am not the type of rambunctious pup that will slobber all over you; instead, I am mature and reserved. I will give hugs and the occasional kiss when invited, but otherwise I prefer to just be sitting at your feet or in nearby proximity to you. Wherever you go, I like to be nearby and this makes me the perfect companion dog! I enjoy my stuffed toys and bones, but the thing I enjoy most in life – above all else – is just being able to be in the presence of my humans. That is when I am most content.
I am quiet when outside in the yard or on walks – I don’t bark at passersby or other dogs. I tolerate other dogs okay, but prefer the company of humans since that’s what I was accustomed to…being the only dog in my previous family. My foster family also has a cat and since I’ve never really had interaction with cats, I am very curious about them and that makes me want to chase them.
I have been told I am a handsome dog with my nice thick coat and regal looking face. Except of course for my one unique and endearing trait that sets me apart from the others – I have one ear that stays up and one that stays down!
I am very grateful to my foster family for giving me a place to stay, but I really need to be in a home without all of the commotion of so many other dogs coming and going. Won’t you please consider being my forever family and giving me a home where I can spend my senior years without having to worry about ending up at the shelter again? In exchange, I promise you love, loyalty, good behavior, protection, and most of all – companionship – since being in the company of humans is truly what I love more than anything else. Thank you for taking the time to read my bio and considering me for adoption!”
Love, Rocky ♥
Rocky is neutered, fully vaccinated and microchipped.
