About Rocket

Distance: 1,552 Miles
Approx DOB:  6/24/2008       Approx Weight:  50 lbs. Adoption Fee: $100 includes a 2 week trial to ensure everyone's happiness.  Rocket was adopted from Furry Kids as a puppy and returned because he kept escaping his family's yard by jumping their fence.  We have also learned that Rocket is not good with cats.   When he was returned, his nails were extremely long. Shortly after he was returned, we also discovered that he was heartworm positive.  He has been treated for the heartworms and if kept on prevention should have no ill effects from them. The condition Rocket was returned in was poor and since then we have gotten his nails and body healthy:) Rocket is a character. He is a hugger!  Rocket has spent many years at the rescue since he was returned. Older dogs are less desirable. If you happen to be someone who looks past the years you’ll see he is still very much puppy. The years won’t slow this boy down! Rockets ideal home would be a large fenced yard with a 6' wooden fence. He will sniff and play all day if you let him. He is also very calm and hardly ever barks. Since he is older children 13 and up is advised. He is kenneled trained and loves loves to cuddle. You may notice he has some long hairs and patchy looking fur; It definitely adds to his goofy demeanor. His face is the softest of any dog I’ve ever petted so definitely give him a good face rub while you’re visiting with him.  Rocket isn’t much of a playful dog he prefers to walk along side them. If you have a relaxed dog who could use a buddy give Rocket a chance. He deserves it:) Ask is about being a foster! We need wonderful people to be foster homes until they find their forever homes. Rocket has been neutered, treated for heartworms, is current on vaccinations and is microchipped. If you are interested in adopting Rocket, please fill out the adoption application located at and a dedicated volunteer will get back with you as soon as possible.  Thanks for your interest in Rocket.
