Adoptable Dog of the Week – Rocky

A stunner from head to tail, this handsome fella is looking for someone to shower him with love! Our Adoptable Dog of the Week is Rocky, a 1.5 to 2 years old Siberian Husky and Catahoula Leopard Dog mix from Chariton, Iowa. He is neutered, house trained, and up to date on his vaccines. Rocky is a friendly pooch but hasn’t been tested around dogs yet. He does great with children but needs a home without cats.

Rocky’s Tale

Rocky is a sweet and silly boy that has a lot of energy and love in him: he loves playing and being around people. Despite living on a farm in his early life, Rocky is house trained and knows his manners when being indoors – he also knows a few commands such as sit and lay down. He is mostly leash trained but can still pull a little bit when he gets excited, but with a little patience and motivation, he could easily overcome this. Unlike most pooches that are motivated with treats and food, Rocky is a big people pleaser and is more motivated by praise and pets as a reward than he is with yummies. He is a smart cookie and could learn a lot with the right people guiding him!

Full of energy and curiosity, Rocky has a tendency to wander off if left without supervision, so he will need a home with a fenced-in yard – where he could play and run around without the risk of getting into trouble. Rocky hasn’t been tested around other dogs but his previous owners say that he was always friendly when he’d meet other pooches, so a meeting would be recommended if you already have a dog. He is not good with cats as he tends to chase them, so a feline-free home is a must for Rocky. He is great with kids, though, and wouldn’t mind playing with children in the home.

If you think Rocky sounds like a great pooch, contact the Humane Society of Lucas County for more information about him and the adoption process.
