FROM 2014 -A volunteer writes:
Can this little dude be any cuter? All 23 lbs of him are absolutely delish, from his clean tan coat, big saucer amber eyes, waggy tail, playful, sweet personality, and gentle kisses. A bit shy in his kennel, he took a few minutes to warm up and once he did he happily chased a ball, bringing it back (mostly) for another toss, climbing into my lap for hugs, showering my face with sweet kisses. He wasn’t accustomed to my camera and hid from it at first, but once he realized it wasn’t a scary thing he was OK with some pictures. Likely housetrained he took care of business the moment we were out the door, and then we enjoyed a nice walk to the park. He seems to like kids, wagging his tail in friendship at groups of school kids as we passed them by. Other dogs? Sure! Wag, wag, wag! Rocket’s favorite thing is to be picked up and hugged, snuggling as close as he can get. So if a sweet, gently playful, huggy and kissy little guy is what you’re after, Rocket is the pup for you. He rocked his behavior assessment indicating he’ll be a good fit in most homes. Maybe yours? Ask to meet him today.
