Meet Rocky Located in South Carolina
Hello, my name is Rocky and I’m ready to find my forever home! I’m a 1 ½ year old boy who was surrendered by a hunter at a shelter in KY and they asked SEGSP to help me and I’m so glad they did.
My foster Mom said she is assuming based on my behavior when I entered rescue that I was not a good hunter and was cruelly handled by my owner. I’m currently in SC and have been working on my social skills. I get along with other dogs and am okay with cats. I am more curious then anything. I adjusted to indoor living quickly (I was definitely born to be a family pet) and I’m house-trained and crate-trained.
I LOVE toys – LOVE them!!! Toys are littered everywhere in my foster home and I’m in heaven playing with them. I love to cuddle and am gaining weight nicely (I LOVE food). I will need a fenced in yard to run and play (I’m a high energy young GSP) and preferably another playmate. I love friends.
I’ve been told I’m very smart and I know basic commands, e.g. sit, stay, come, inside, outside, no, leave it and kennel. I’m still learning about leash-walking but I do pretty well now on a leash. I understand love from women, but am a little apprehensive towards men. My foster Mom believes that my past owner was not exactly the nicest. I need patience and love from men, but do fall in love after some care.
I’ve come a long way with my fear. At my first training session I was hiding between my foster Mom’s legs when meeting new people, giving them low growls and other “threat behaviors.” I’ve overcome a lot of my fear with the help of training techniques that my foster Mom has been consistently using.
I’m meeting new people all the time and although some men are still scary to me, I do love the ladies the best. I’m venturing out more and more each day and my foster Mom says I’m now ready to find my special home where I’ll never be in fear and I’ll be loved for the rest of my life.
If you think you can me the family and love I need and want, please complete and adoption application (if you haven’t already) and email my foster mom Allyson.
P.S. I’m neutered, fully vetted and temperament tested. My adoption fee is $375.
