ROCKY BALBOA – 18497
Safe - 1-25-2018 Manhattan Rescue: Beastly Rescue, Inc Please honor your pledges: https://www.beastlyrescue.org/donate/
Hello, my name is Rocky Balboa. My animal id is #18497. I am a desexed male chocolate dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 1 years 1 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a stray on 17-Jan-2018.
Rocky Balboa is at risk for medical reasons, having been diagnosed with Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex, which is contagious to other dogs. Behaviorally, we have no concerns for Rocky Balboa, whom we believe would be suitable to most homes.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: Rocky-Y, Rocky-Y, Rock-Y! Although in this case you’ll want to use your quiet voice, because our Rocky Balboa is a total schmushy, lover, cuddle bug. We even found some stairs to simulate Rock-Y, but all our Rocky wanted to do was cuddle, and we were more than happy to oblige. Awesome on leash, likely housetrained, a gentle cuddler and kisser who closes his eyes when rolling in for cuddles, there is simply nothing not to love about our Rocky B. He’s social and easy and proved it all in his behavior assessment which he aced in every category. No surprise there! In playgroup with females (he hasn’t been with males as of this writing), he enjoys exuberant play. We could have spent the morning cuddling with this sweet boy, but had to move on. You, lucky adopter, should run, not walk to MACC to meet our cuddle buddy today. He’s waiting to meet you.
My medical notes are…
Weight: 51.4 lbs
Details on my behavior are…
Behavior Condition: 1. Green
