Fall in Love with Rocket Man!

Hey, kids! My name is Rocket. I’m a goofy, cuddle-bug that you’ll instantly be over the moon for. I’m a 3-year-old, 33-pound Shepherd mix. I’m a healthy boy and I’m already neutered, too! I was recently rescued locally when my family couldn’t take care of me anymore. Despite this heartbreak, I’ve been loving life with my foster. I hope it’s not a long, long time before I touchdown in my furever home!

I’m a super sweet boy, but I need some socialization practice. I was not properly trained as a pup, so I need to learn that other doggos aren’t so scary! With a proper introduction, I love playing with other pooches. I met kitties and I dont think we can be buds. I also haven’t met any kids, but since I’m such a gentle sweetie, I think I’d do well!

When I’m not making new friends, I’m an all-star at fetch. I have plenty of jet fuel for playtime, but I’m also a huge snuggler. I may be timid at first, but give me a day or two and I’ll be the most affectionate fella!

I’m hard at work earning the “good boy” title and all bathroom trained now. I also love going on walks but have some leash reactivity. I’ll lunge or bark at other dogs, so I’ll need to continue my training. I do well with commands and have already learned, “sit, stay, come” and I’m working on “shake.” I might get a little sad when you leave, but I’ll settle down quickly and do just fine home alone (you won’t come back to any house pawties!)

If you’re looking for a starry-eyed lover-boy, look no further! My ideal furever home would be one with a calm, confident dog (preferably around my size) who can show me the ropes. I think I’d be a great family pooch since I’m so gentle! I would adore a home with a yard or plenty of walks. I need to continue my socialization and leash training so that I can be the best boy in all the galaxy. I’ll be thanking my lucky stars if you adopt me today! My adoption fee is $350 and that includes spaying/neutering, shots, and microchip.
