My name is Rocket, and they call me 'Rocketman' around here. I'm that fast! What I mostly go for is food. Yep. I'm an American Bulldog hog. I LOVE it. I seek it out. It's my everything. But I want you to be my everything too and take me home with you! I've started having a huge amount of angst and anxiety toward men and other dogs now, so they will be careful where they place me. I need hugs and blankets, and stuffed animals! And treats! I'll do anything for a treat. I'm a hunk of burning love for my treats! If I sound like a dog you could share your home, and food with, then look no further. I'll even go on a jogging regime with you if you want! I am heartworm negative, microchipped, and weigh a trim 55 pounds. I'm ready for life on a couch! My ancestry is American Bulldog with a few other breeds probably thrown in there. Come adopt me and see what a true couch potato looks like! Rocket is a male pitbull mix found as a stray on Davis Street. He is brown in color and was wearing a collar with a lock on it. He is very much improved now on weight and has really come around so he is available to adopt or rescue. He has been fully vetted and is heartworm negative and microchipped. He has high anxiety toward the other dogs and will latch onto another dog if given the chance. He also has really started growling at barking at men who have come to visit him.
