Safe - 12-23-2017 Manhattan
Hello, my name is Rocky . My animal id is #16164. I am a male gray dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 2 years old.
I came into the shelter as a stray on 15-Dec-2017.
Rocky is at risk for medical reasons, having been diagnosed with Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex, which is contagious to other dogs. We suggest that Rocky would be best suited to a dog experienced home.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: Rocky is an eager stout and short chap who bolts like a rocket out of his kennel. He is quite cute I must say, well made, muscular without being over the top and is so excited to show what he can do with balls and toys. He jumps and runs after a tennis ball, does head shots and most often catches. He likes to rest on the ground and savor a teddy bear given as a present to him by another volunteer. He can sit on command for treats, jumps on the bench next to me and lets me pet him without any problem. He very much enjoys the scratching of his back and neck. Rocky pulls on the leash and does his business on the way. He pulls toward and barks quite a bit when he sees another dog, male or female. Who knows, he may never have met many of his own kind. Rocky is intense about what ever he wants and does. He most likely will need some general curbing to make a gentleman out of him but he has lots of elements that make him a good dog and a suitable candidate for obedience training. Come and meet our Rocky at the Manhattan Care Center. He surely would love to be home for the holidays.
My medical notes are…
Weight: 68 lbs
