Rocky was pulled from a local shelter. He was heartworm positive when he joined our rescue and has completed treatment.

Rocky is very unique - and it will take a very special person to adopt him. Rocky has a very strong willed personality, with a mind of his own. He is a live and let live type of boy. 

He adores the tennis ball, it will keep him busy for hours and hours. Rocky also does well with other dogs, and loves to play! 

Rocky has come a long way since his arrival here at CPR.  Almost all our caregivers are able to pick him up and handle him.  Now that he is more comfortable he seems to want more human interaction.  We believe that there is the right someone out there somewhere for Rocky.  He is really a great dog, he just needs a strong dog savvy person that will be a confident pack leader. Rocky is a fun loving guy that absolutely loves playtime with his toys!


Can’t have a dog of your own? Have a soft spot for old, sick or hard to place dogs? It only takes a $20 a month donation for me to be your virtual dog! I need at least 10 virtual adopters (sponsors) to help cover my monthly costs.  If I have medical challenges I need even more! r having to leave your home, you can have your very own online dog that will send you update emails, make Facebook posts, and be eternally grateful for your support!  Go to the donate link at the top of the page for instructions as to how to donate.

I love my Virtual Adopters!
