Rocky has had a rough go of things recently. He was found as a stray and was hit by a car. He appears to have something going on with one of his back legs. One of our Vets is seeing to him now. While in his previous foster home, prior to LR, he has been a total sweetheart. He was Fostered with many other dogs and chickens. He had zero problems with any of them. Which leads me to believe he will be okay with cats. He rides great in the car. He lovingly puts his head in your lap for affection. He is polite and does not jump up on you. He is not bad on leash. He will pull a bit to meet a new friend. He met a little female puppy. He was all tag wags and when he approached her, she growled, and he politely turned away and moved on. He is in great spirits. He is a beautiful happy boy. Please be patient. Rocky needs time with our medical team before we can consider any families for him. Please check back with us and look for updates as we learn more about Rocky and his needs

Update:

For so long I’ve been searching for a guy who will adoringly gaze into my eyes with love and I’ve finally found one…Rocky! Ok…so he’s a canine guy instead of a human guy but that’s why he’s such a sweetheart so I’m totally honored to be fostering him!

Rocky is recovering nicely from his surgery and has his 2-week follow-up scheduled for Monday, 8/17 and will hopefully be able to have his sutures removed then. He will be relieved to not have to wear the cone even though the new comfy cone that we got him is so much better than the plastic cone! Right now his activity is limited to 5 to 10 minute walks around the yard every few hours but in another week or two he should be ready to start some swimming therapy.

Rocky has a very sweet and mellow personality. He loves belly rubs, kisses, and lounging around on the couch with his head in my lap. He really does love to look into my eyes while being petted or brushed. He usually seems very relaxed but I suspect that he will become more playful as his activity restrictions are lifted. In typical lab fashion he’s definitely a foodie. He enthusiastically devours his kibble in less than 2 minutes. He also loves pepperoni flavored dog treats, yogurt, and puppuccinos, but hates peanut butter and pig’s ears. Thanks for following Rocky's progress.
