Feature SharPei - Rocky
Sponsor me Rocky

Hi, I'm Rocky! I am a very sweet, social two year old boy. I was in bad shape and very underweight when I came from the shelter, so they thought I was older. I have been doing great in my foster home and am now up to 37.5 pounds! I like other dogs and cats. I have lived with kids and have done fine, but we think I would do best with older children. My coat is coming in nicely. I look great and am playing like the two year old youngster that I am!

Are you looking for a sweet, young boy to join your family? Well then look no further! Please fill out an application and ask for Rocky!

Please visit the adoption page to read more about me and see more pictures!

Potential adopters should fill out an Online Adoption Application.  Alternatively, you can download, fill out, and submit an application.  More Info
