Why am I with a rescue group? Rocky was found as a stray and landed in a rural shelter. Carolina Poodle Rescue pulled him from the shelter. 

Rocky of Warrenton is a quiet senior boy. We wish we had known him earlier in life. At an estimated 16 years young, Rocky simply enjoys quiet beds and lots of sleep. He is a gentle dog that is indifferent to the other dogs in his foster home. He is happy to sit with you on the couch, and equally happy to snuggle in his bed throughout the day. 

Rocky is in hospice. His kidneys are failing and he is no longer responding to medicine. His foster mom is helping him live out his best bucket list and being rewarded with all the sweet kisses and gentle snuggles her heart desires.


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! PAM K, JENNIFER & MIKE R
