Meet Rocket ADOPTED!

Rocket 2

Rocket is an incredibly sweet 2 year old Shepherd/Great Dane mix. He has quickly won over the hearts of his foster family. He was raised with an older child (6-8) and was very loving and gentle with them.

Rocket is very affectionate and playful, he loves to play tug of war and catch, but will also happily play by himself or settle in for snuggles with the family.

He loves to go out on walks and needs his daily exercise. Rocket is a smart, obedient, and cunning boy. He knows basic commands such as sit and will shake paws with you if you ask. He loves treats and human food. While he does counter-surf when left unattended, he does not try to steal food from humans. Rocket would be best in a home where there are rules that are enforced. He is well-behaved, but will test boundaries when given the opportunity.

Rocket 6

Hi foster home is working on crate training Rocket at this time. He is now OK in the crate when they are home, but he is still getting used to being crated when his family leaves the house. He will bark for about an hour before settling in - thus we do not recommend apartment living for him at this time.

Rocket is a very sweet and loyal boy. He wants nothing more than to love and be loved. He will no doubt be an amazing dog if given the chance.

Rocket is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, heartworm tested (negative), and will be microchipped prior to adoption.
