Rocky is a contender who refuses to give up on finding a forever home
“Every champion was once a contender who refused to give up.” This good-looking guy is Rocky, and he will not give up until he has won his very own forever family. As in the movie, Rocky is solid as a rock but with a tender, loving heart. He loves to play fetch and be active outside. Then, Rocky will come inside to be pet, do some cuddling, and to hear some sweet talk from his people (especially if your name is “Adrian”). Rocky is good with some dogs, so he would need to be properly introduced to all new friends. Because this little 2-year-old likes to keep in shape by running, he will need a fenced yard. At 54 pounds he can easily knock a "lightweight" over, so Rocky would be better suited with older children. As with any good athlete, Rocky is up to date on his vaccinations. Rocky has also been neutered. Don't bother looking for Rocky in Philly, he is currently residing at Pet Refuge and is waiting for you to be his Mickey Goldmill.
