Like a certain Sylvester Stallone character, this Rocky has the spirit to overcome hard times. The 1-year-old Labrador Retriever/German Shepherd mix is a smart, active pup who loves palling around with his canine buddies. Sadly, his owner could no longer care for him and didn’t have the proper amount of room for him to exercise.
This Rocky, too, is initially shy with new people and needs help building his confidence, so a more experienced owner who can guide him – one who also has a yard or a yen for the dog park – is preferred.
Rocky warms up quickly and is wonderful and loving once he knows you. Overall, he is a great dog who will blossom in the right home.
