DoggieDog, Hey You!

Doggie Dynamics:

Quick Bio:
-pound dog-dog rescue

September 12th 1994

What Rocky likes most food. Any food (except lettuce). He just loves food. He loves to just sit in your lap while you pet him, but if you stop, he's gone. He isn't very active but does enjoy going outside to sniff every blade of grass in the yard.

The vacuum cleaner, the UPS driver or anyone delivering anything to the front door.

Favorite Toy:
He's not very playful. To catch him with a toy is rare.

Favorite Food:

Favorite Walk:

Arrival Story:
We found Rocky at the Humane League. He was only days away from being put to sleep but with such a wonderful personality we couldn't understand why. The kids and I took him into the 'get acquainted room' at the shelter and we soon found out. He ignored us but lifted his leg on every wall, chair, or door that was not occupied. I was a little nervous about bringing him home but the kids loved him. As soon as we walked in the door he lifted his leg on my couch. I yelled "NO!" and that was the last time he ever tried it. Maybe no one ever told him that he shouldn't do that. He quickly became a part of the family. His was a life worth saving and we are so happy that he is with us.

Rocky was found wondering the streets in Paradise, PA on a busy highway. No one really knew too much about him so almost everything of his past is a mystery. All we really knew was that he was estimated to be about 4 years old and he scored perfectly on the personality tests.

My Diary

Same Old Rocky

Good Ol' Rock. He's 15 1/2 years old now and he hasn't changed much since the day we adopted him when he was about 4 years old. He never had much energy and never seemed to be interested in playing.

Since his brother Snoop came to live with us we are realizing that he doesn't seem to know how to play. He tries, and he's getting better at it, but he tires quickly and heads back to his corner/bed.

He is still just a wonderful guy. He has the most amazing temperment... calm, sweet and lovable.

As always food is his favorite thing. Almost ANY food. But he also loves to be snuggled and loved and petted.

Rocky is content to just hang out and he gets along with everyone. Over the holidays we had four dogs and a cat in the house (along with four adults, one teenager and one pre-schooler) If it all gets to be too much for him he just stays out of the way.

We just love him and we are always so happy that we brought him into our lives and that he seems to be happy.
