Hi! My Name is Rocky

  • Rocky
  • Mixed Breed
  • 3 years old
  • Male

Weight (approx): 59 lbs

Energy: Medium

Children: Older Children

Dogs: No

Cats: Unknown

Health Notes:  Rocky came into hart's care from our target community as he wasn't getting the care that he needed. He was malnourished and had a belly full of worms but after some healthy meals and deworming he improved greatly. While in Hart's care it was discovered that Rocky was having seizures. He has been under the vets care for a few months and has had numerous tests and it was deemed that he has epilepsy. Rocky has been through months of testing, monitoring and adjusting his medications. His veterinary team believe Rocky is ready for adoption as his epilepsy is being well managed with his current medications and dosages. His adoptive parents need to know that this is a chronic condition for which he will require medication and monitoring as he may still have seizures in the future. Rocky is up to date on his standard antiparasitics, vaccinations (DACPP, Bordatella, Rabies), microchip and is neutered.

Ideal Home:  Rocky seems to be receptive to different environments so with some time and patience, he should fit into any type of home.  Rocky has had doggy playmates in the past but can get quite excited and reactive to other dogs while on leash so he'd likely prefer to have all the attention to himself in the home.  Rocky hasn't been exposed to cats while in our care but he does have prey drive so might not do well with smaller animals.  Rocky has been around kids young and old and was fine with them but because he uses his mouth when excited, younger kids are not recommended.  Rocky is crate trained and he knows how to sit, shake, stay, spin, lay down, come, kennel up, and  his foster home is working on muzzle training with him. Rocky has very good recall, but sometimes ignores commands when very excited.  Rocky likes to learn tricks and is excited to just get kibble as a reward. He is smart and would probably love an owner who could teach him more.
