About Rocky

Poodle / Chihuahua
Age: Adult
Sex: Male

ROCKY is a 5 year old, 12.2 pound Poodle mix LOCATION: Pensacola FL NEEDS: Fenced yard HIGHLIGHTS: Sweet, friendly. Rocky is a very sweet little guy who came to us from a a bad situation. At first he was timid, and that's not surprising since he is in a completely different place with dogs and people he doesn't know. But he's made a lot of progress since we've had him! He used to shy away and cringe if someone reached out to pet him, but he is getting used to being loved on, picked up and held. He now loves to be in the chair with his foster mom or dad. He will stretch out on his back for naps with all four legs in the air in perfect contentment. Rocky hasn't shown any interest in toys, but has played some with his foster family's puppy. He has been good around the dogs in his foster home and enjoys their company. Rocky is submissive to other dogs and walks away when his alpha foster sister snaps at him. His foster mom thinks he would be fine with other dogs or as an only dog, but he does like to play with other little dogs and a play buddy would make him happy. If he is an only dog in the home he won't be good spending time alone. He suffers from separation anxiety and will howl when he cannot see his foster family, but that is getting better the longer he's in his foster home. Rocky hasn't paid any attention to the cat in his temporary home, and would probably be okay with older children. Rocky is good on a leash, but a fenced yard is necessary. He's scared of storms and loud noises and will bolt when he's afraid. He's doing much better with potty training and will use a pad if he can't get outside. He will still try to mark once in a great while, but hopefully that will be better after his neuter. Rocky sleeps in the big bed at night and will occasionally nap in a dog bed during the day. he's a very good boy who will make somebody a calm and loving pet! Rocky has been to the vet for a wellness check, is up to date on shots, fecal tested, heartworm negative, has had a 12-month ProHeart heartworm prevention shot, and is microchipped with a lifetime registration. His neuter is scheduled for next week at one of our vets and is covered by the rescue. Rocky is a very sweet and gentle boy who deserves the best home!
