Age: 7 years | Size: 10 lbs | Male Mix
~ Adoption Pending!
Meet Rocky….a 7 year old, 10 pound poodle mix who just arrived. He is so relieved to be out of the shelter where he was very worried and uncertain about everything going on around him. He is happy to be in a home environment now and is slowly settling in and decompressing. Rocky enjoys getting attention from his foster parents and is fine with the other small dogs in his foster home, although he does not really interact with them yet. He likes playing with plushie toys by himself and keep watch over them.
Rocky’s ideal home would be with a dog savvy person or couple who can help build his confidence by giving him a stable and predictable routine. Rocky frightens easily and will bark at unfamiliar people and strange noises. He also has some separation anxiety and will bark when left alone, so an apartment/condo complex would not be a good setting for him. Rocky bonds quickly with his people once he feels safe and secure. He loves to be close with them and will curl up next to them or climb into their laps. He likes to sleep in the big bed with his family and go for walks and rides with them. He is happy as long as he is with his people and does not like to be left behind.
Rocky is up-to-date on his vaccines, microchipped, neutered, and had a dental cleaning. He is ready to find his forever family who will provide him with all the love and patience he needs to be a happy and well-adjusted dog. Please complete an online application if you are interested in giving Rocky his forever home. His adoption fee is $350.
