Hi. My name is Rocky! I know I don't look anything like the guy in the movie and to be truthful, I'm a bit relieved! I may not be as big as what you expected, but please don't count me out! My foster mom says I'm a svelte version of a rottie, whatever that means. Human funny words. I'm a lean 55 pounds with a big heart and I have a boy-ish face with the sweetest eyes, if I do say so myself. My foster mom says they named me Rocky because I fought hard to survive and I can hold my own when I play with larger dogs. And, just so you know, I'm calm, curious, courageous, smart, and a great companion! I'm just the right size for someone that is special just like me! Before landing with my foster mom and my crew, I was in a very scary place called a shelter and humans kept passing by me. Luckily, these awesome humans picked me up, and took me to a land called Texas. My pack made me feel welcomed and they thought it was funny that I would keep my distance from the human initially. See, I survived by being cautious and watching my environment. Turns out my foster mom gave me food, and treats, and toys, and a nice dog bed! An actual bed for me!! She is real proud that I learned to go potty outside in 2 days. She always tells me I am a sweet boy. I keep real still for her when she changes my collar or puts on the leash. I don't mind if she gets close to my food and I am gentle when I take treats. I can even eat off a spoon. I try to be a gentleman at all times! I give her kisses from time to time (can't over do it or she'll never stop asking) and I like to cuddle with her. Besides my step-sister, I have 2 step-brothers. Although I'm not bossy, I do like to start the fun! I chase them and they chase me and we have fun wrestling. I may be the smallest but I win a lot cuz I am fast and nimble! Oh, and don't tell my my foster mom but we also like to chase squirrels. And sometimes, when I feel really silly, I jump up and down like a goat and my human laughs and plays with me too! And guess what??? I figured out the treat toys faster than my pack but I don't bother them when I finish. I know how to mind my own business. My foster mom says because of my sensitivity, I would do best in a calm environment and if children are around, they should be older and patient. My foster mom has pictures and videos of me in case you want to see more of me. And you can contact her anytime and I will help her with any questions you have about me! I am really looking forward to being someone's forever and ever and ever and ever companion!
