Greetings, I'm Rocket, but I'm eager to embrace a new name if you prefer one. I'm one sharp pup who's ready to adapt. My journey began when I was just a few days old, found on the side of the road with my entire litter. I was bottle-fed and given a fresh start. Though I was initially adopted with my sister, circumstances led me back to the rescue, and now I stand as the last of my litter, yearning for a forever home.

In my foster haven, I've polished my house manners. I've mastered the art of crate and potty training and make splendid use of the doggy door. Toys are my jam, particularly plushies, but I must admit, distinguishing between mine and yours is a bit blurry. I might engage in a spot of 'suckling' before indulging in a lively play session, a quirk some might say is Freudian. I'm a real hoot, guaranteed to keep you amused.

Now, when it comes to love, food takes the cake (or bone, rather). I'm an adventurous eater who enthusiastically devours everything from veggies like spinach and carrots to all manners of doggy delicacies. I know the commands for 'sit' and 'crate,' and I'm diligently working on 'lay down,' although that treat dangling above is pretty distracting.

Exercise is also on my radar; I fancy our walks and wouldn't mind having them become a regular part of my routine. In my foster abode, I engage in playful antics with Mandy, my foster doggy sister, but I'm just as content to unwind. You'll be pleased to know I'm not a frequent barker, but when I do let out a bark, it's unmistakable - a deep AhROOO, with a houndy charm all its own. Could you be the one to make me a part of your forever story? I'm ready to be yours

Something to Consider:

  • Puppies don't train themselves

    If you aren’t willing to train a puppy every single day, don’t get a puppy! It isn’t a one-shot deal. You have to be dedicated. And if you aren’t making progress – find someone who can help. Enroll in a puppy training class or hire a trainer. Most cities across the nation have some sort of availability for this kind of help and at different cost levels that would fit your budget.

     

    Puppies are going to poop a lot and pee even more; chew on everything; bite everyone; scratch people and furniture; steal things; destroy something at some point; pull on the leash; not move at all on the leash; bark; cry; beg for attention; and the list goes on. You’re going to have to walk them, bathe them, pick up everything below waist height, buy new shoes, and most importantly: TRAIN THE PUPPY NOT TO DO THESE THINGS! Ultimately, it is your responsibility to teach your puppy that this behavior is unacceptable.
