A volunteer writes: Rocky is the Marshmallow Man in dog form! He’s giant, he’s white, he’s squishy and everything jiggles when he runs about! And Rocky loves to run…well it’s more of a gallop, he’s not as graceful as he thinks he is, and he sort of bounces around. He is so silly, loves toys and carrying them around, and is incredibly affectionate! Staff sings his praises too: he’s a favorite by all for his super friendly demeanor, and is even used as a helper dog in playgroups. Rocky’s former owner tells us that he is gentle with children, often leaning in for back rubs, loves being bathed, is housetrained and knows the commands ‘sit’, ‘come,’ and ‘down.’ At 85 pounds, Rocky is way more friend than movie villain.
