Pointer Rescue -- helping to make a difference

Rocky Needs A New Home

Hi, my name is Rocky and I had a bit of a “rocky” start in life. My sister and I grew up living in pen in Louisiana. One day our family said we were moving to Texas. I thought that maybe life would be better, but they decided that they didn’t have the money to take us to their new home so we got dropped off at a shelter. It was a very scary place and then my sister got adopted and I was so alone. I made a cross country journey to join Pointer Rescue Org and am now in a New York foster home learning about lots of new things and am excited to find a family to call my own. I hope you will consider adopting me, because I would love to have a family of my very own. I am a very loyal dog and would love nothing more than to spend time with my new family. I love to do whatever my humans want to do, I like to snuggle on the couch. I also love to play fetch and will retrieve a ball right into your hand every time! Going for walks and hikes is very fun too and I even like to ride in the car next to you. If you are looking for a devoted companion, that is ME! I’m still learning about some things and can be a little shy in new situations like visiting the busy dog food store, but with time I think I will like that too. I like the cat in my foster home, I don’t mind napping with her and sometimes she leaves me a few kibbles in her bowl, but I wait until she is done! There are 4 other dogs in my foster home, they are ok, but I prefer to just hang around with the humans and love their attention. In my dream home I would love to be the only dog so we can focus on each other, but one brother or sister dog would be ok. My foster parents have been teaching me to walk on a leash and how to sit. I am learning and certainly enjoy the treats they use during training! One more thing about me……don’t think that I am sad when you see my pictures!! I may look like I have a scowl, but my foster Mom says that is just my underbite and she says I have cute facial expressions because of it. My wagging tail will let you know that I am happy! So, if you are looking for your new best friend, look no farther, HERE I AM!

Rocky is a black & white English Pointer around 4 years old. He is up to date on all of his shots (none due until February 2015), neutered, microchipped, tested negative for heartworms and TBI’s. He is on monthly flea/tick and heartworm preventative and has been strategically dewormed. He is well behaved for nail trimming, ear cleaning, baths and brushing. Rocky does have an underbite and his teeth are a little misaligned, but we got him a full dental exam and cleaning so he is totally ready to go to a FUR-ever family!
