Rocky Needs a Home

About Rocky

My Name is… Rocky

I am… 1 Year old

Can I be rehomed with cats? No

Can I be rehomed with dogs? No

Can I be rehomed with children? Yes, over 10 years


Rocky loves toys and treats, anything that he can chew! He loves to meet new people and will play and play! When Rocky is tired out or relaxing, he enjoys a nice cuddle.

When out and about, Rocky is OK with other dogs but would prefer to be the only dog in the home.

He is a very excitable and boisterous young man, especially upon meeting new people. He is mouthy when he is excited, but this is not to be confused with aggression.

Rocky is fearful of the vets and does associate the car with the vets, so would prefer a home where little car travel is required.

He is a real foodie!


A quieter household with older children/adults only would benefit Rocky best.

He will require additional training in helping him learn boundaries.

Please contact the rescue if you are interested.

Home checks, Vet checks and Adoption fees apply.
