25/8/13 Rocky has gone to his new home after being spotted on the Oldies Club website!
Rocky is a 10 year old Crossbreed gentleman who is being rehomed by Friends of the Animals RCT, after being abandoned. He is in a foster home in Bicester, Oxfordshire.
Rocky has settled beautifully at his foster home and is the perfect companion. He is a sweet and cheeky soul who has lovely manners. He enjoys a fuss and happily settles down with a comforting hand on his back. He loves having children around and will persuade them that they do really need to give him extra special cuddles on the sofa. He is such an affectionate boy.
As soon as he is out for a walk, Rocky forgets he’s 10 and becomes a puppy again! His fosterer has been working on his lead walking as he has been very strong. With the help of a behaviourist he is doing really well. He gets excited when he sees dogs outside, but there is no aggression, it is pure excitement.
Rocky is house trained and is happy to be left at home alone for a few hours – he cuddles up in his basket with a fleecy blanket.
Rocky enjoys the company of children. He is very interested in cats so would be best in a home without cats. It is thought that Rocky could live with another dog, but he would need to be introduced outside first. As Rocky is very bouncy for his age, the rescue thinks that an older settled dog would be great company for him.
Rocky is vaccinated, microchipped and neutered. He truly is a lovely old chap who deserves to find a home of his own, with regular cuddles and affection from his special family.
Note that prospective adopters are expected to travel to meet Rocky in his foster home in Bicester, Oxon.
If you are interested in adopting Rocky, please read and complete Friends of the Animals RCT’s Adoption Enquiry Form. One of their adoption coordinators will then contact you for a chat.
Please mention that you saw Rocky on the Oldies Club website.
