About Rocky

Adoption Fee: $100
Australian Cattle Dog
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Male

Hi! This is rocky, an almost 3 year old, purebred blue heeler! Fixed and not updated on shots unfortunately. We got him as a puppy ( 6 months ) and he was a perfect fit for us! Until recently we have had some issues pop up that are giving him and is a lot of anxiety. We had to move into a smaller apartment, and we now have 3 people,soon to be 4. and 3 animals in a 1 bedroom and it is not working out for anyone. Rocky is good with other animals, he is a herding dog, so he does have instincts of chase, but never harmed or even shown aggression towards any animal. (Cats, small dogs, larger dogs) He does okay with children, but would be best with older kids who know how to treat an animal as such. ( we have a 18 month old ) and he struggles around him because of the lack of common knowledge or what not to do, and thinks it's funny to chase him with things. ( even when told no and such ) He is a high energy dog, loves to play , be outdoors, and around his human(s). He knows how to sit, stay, wait, lay down, paw. He has some traits about him that have made Rehoming him a struggle. But could be reconciled with proper training.
