Description: 
4-18-09 Rocky went to his new home today where he has a 'big sister' Boxer named Grace! 4-7-09 Rocky was left chained outside with no food, water or shelter and it was snowing! Poor guy was huddled in a little ball shivering and was more than happy to be rescued. He has been held the required 7 days and has not been claimed. Has been to the vet and had all vaccinations, heartworm check, wormed and treated for fleas. Being treated for earmites, an ear infection and may possibly have some allergies. Also may have some future dental problems due to his severe underbite. Beautiful, flashy, pure bred boy but this is a high maintenance breed and not for the first time dog owner! He will be neutered and micro-chipped before adoption.(scheduled for 4-13-09-done) 50 lbs and just about a year old, this is a very nice dog. He is crate trained tho he doesn't like it and would much prefer to sleep in bed with you. Has had no accidents here so may be house trained? He does not raise his leg yet which is a plus! Fine with most other dogs and tries really hard to play with the cats much to their displeasure! Young guy so has typical puppy behavior and boxer exuberance! Might be a bit much for very small children due to his activity level as he loves to play! Sensitive and eager to please this guy will make a great addition to to the right family. He would love a fenced yard and maybe another friendly dog to play with. E-mail for an application if you can provide a lifetime, indoor home for Rocky!
