Rocky was pulled from a shelter where he ended up after surgery from an attack by another dog. He is good with dogs he knows but can be fearful of stange dogs. He sometimes yelps when picked up or if his tie out touches the side he was bitten on. I believe it is due to his nerve damage from the attack. He's a REALLY great dog, house broken but must be on a tie out or fenced in yard. I found him a home where he stayed a few months but they kept letting him get out, so he was returned to me, & now He just needs to find his forever home!
