This laid-back 4 y/o, 65 lb boy - Bullwinkle (now nicknamed Rocky) - came to Philly ACCT shelter as a stray and eventually was slated for euthanasia. Now that he's had time to decompress out of the shelter, he's ready for a home to call his own. While at the shelter, the volunteers who spent time with him reported that he really enjoyed going for long walks and getting lots of affection and petting. He also did well on a dog meet with a shy, submissive female. Now, his foster mom says 'Bullwinkle (Rocky) very good and chilled-out boy who's patiently waiting for his forever home,' says his foster mom. 'Often, people choose a pet based on their looks instead of their loyalty and the love they're ready to give. But there are some dogs that choose YOU...and that's our Bullwinkle.' Bullwinkle (Rocky) will do best in a calm/quiet and experienced adult home (no children under 16) where he will feel secure and loved. Although we don't know anything about his background, we suspect he may have been hit as he seems to be fearful of sudden movements. His new family will need to be patient and give him the time he needs to open up and trust you, as well as understand his tendency to resource guard and give him the love and guidance to work through those issues with him. He is an 'alpha' personality and has shown to do best with submissive female dogs (no males). If you are a lover of peace and tranquility, Bullwinkle (Rocky) is the perfect companion to go for a walk, hang out in the yard, take a leisurely car ride or just snuggle up next to you on the couch. He's hoping someone will give him the forever home he deserves!
