Are you looking for a pooch that will make you smile every day? Our Adoptable Dog of the Week is Rocky, a 4-year-old Pit Bull Terrier from Richmond, Virginia. This silly, lovable boy is neutered, up to date on his vaccinations, fully housetrained, and gets along with dogs and children.

Rocky’s Tale

This sweet, goofy guy is ready to settle in his furrever home. Frankly, with a smile that melts hearts and wiggle but that can charm the pants off anyone, it’s a wonder that no one snapped up Rocky already!

His favorite things are rolling up in blankets, car rides, belly rubs, giving kisses, long walks and just being close to you. And toys, of course- the squeakier, the better! Rocky is a very affectionate dog and motivated by praise and attention, so prepare to get dazzled with lots of but wiggling and puppy dancing. Especially if there are treats involved!

Rocky is a very handsome fella, but pretty looks are not all he has to offer: he’s housebroken, listens well and has good house manners. Well, except if you leave behind something super yummy in the kitchen. Then he can do a bit of counter surf, but only rarely- and you’ll forgive him instantly because he’s too freaking adorable. And don’t be alarmed, apart from this occasional hungry mischief, Rocky is exceptionally well-mannered.

When it comes to other pets and family members, Rocky will be thrilled to share his new home with both kids and other dogs. However, since this pretty boy is basically a puppy inside a body of an adult pit bull, he’s not the best fit for families with small kids. Not that he’d mind sharing a home with a kid, it’s just that he’s a solid boy that can get a little bit too excited. He doesn’t like kitties, though, but gets along splendidly with non-confrontational dogs.

If you think that Rocky could be part of your family, visit Ring Dog Rescue for more information.
