|German Shepherd Cross||Large||Male||4 years|
Rocky is such a sweetie! His previous owner could no longer look after him as he was being evicted, but luckily for Rocky we were able to step in and he is now safe and looking for a new home! He can be a little timid to begin with, but soon comes around and shows off his gorgeous personality. Rocky loves his walks and our dog walkers can’t praise him enough, everyone loves him as he walks nicely on the lead and his company is wonderful. He has only been used to living in a caravan or chained up in a kennel, so it may take him a few weeks to settle into a home routine. His previous home told us he may bark at dogs but it is usually in a playful manner. However as with so many dogs, he is suffering a little from kennel stress which has made him quite barky at other dogs at the rescue. We would hope that away from here in a loving, calm environment that Rocky would become more sociable. He will need to be the only pet. In the past Rocky has killed chickens so needs a home with nothing like this around. Despite spending most of his life alone we feel Rocky would probably suit someone home most of the day to help him settle into home life and get used to being left alone in this new environment. Rocky has seen our vet who believes he has poor conformation of his back legs. She has just advised that he may suffer from arthritis etc in the future (like so many dogs!) and he is best kept at a sensible weight with no joint bearing activities e.g. chasing a ball relentlessly! His legs cause no problem at the moment and we sincerely hope this doesn’t put people from offering him the loving home he so badly deserves! He is a genuinely lovely dog and will make a wonderful friend.
