Special Needs?Rocky is lightly heartworm positive (HW+). He will be sent home with a year supply of heartworm medication. He is being treated with a method called the slow kill treatment. He takes a monthly Ivermectin based heartworm preventative and needs to be re-tested for heartworms every 6 months. Once he tests negative, then he can take any kind of heartworm preventative; he is not restricted to Ivermectin based only. PLEASE NOTE our heartworm positive dogs MUST be kept on this method of treatment. Make sure to talk with you vet about this method before submitting an application.
What kind of home would be best for me? A home to have someone to play with, I would do best with another dog because I like to play. I have been tested around our office cats and just sniffed at them curiously, but otherwise left them alone. I need a warm fuzzy bed to crash on and a lap to cuddle on. I have a lot of love to give.
What is my personality like? I am a very friendly boy and love to give kisses. I love to have my ears scratched and my belly rubbed. I have lots of love to offer if you will give me a chance to get to know you. I am a real sweetheart and I am waiting for my forever home.
How do I act when I meet new people? I can sometimes be very shy but I warm up quickly. I love treats and will do whatever you want me to do for one.
Tips and Tidbits: Is familiar with leash walking, but definitely needs some more work with it.
House trained? Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained. A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.
Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.
Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
