This handsome gentleman is ready to charm a forever family with his smarts and sweetheart personality! His idea of a perfect play date? A long walk in the sunshine followed by both of you napping on the couch with his head in your lap. Rocket loves being active and being comfy in equal parts! Wherever you go, he wants to go with you and then find the comfiest spot to sleep until the next playtime.

Rocket is one smart pup! He's already fully house-trained, with no accidents while his foster mom is at work. He knows "sit and "lay down and is working on learning "stay and "wait. So eager to learn, he's even working on crate-training, although he prefers to free-roam with lots of toys. Squeaky and puzzle toys are his favorite!

Rocket loves a good challenge and is very food-motivated. When he wants to play he gets excited since he's so happy to be with his people! Rocket grew up with cats and has lived with them in foster! He's very interested in feline friends and wants to play with them. A slow introduction to new cats could make them best of pals!

Being a big dog is tough work! He'll love a home where he can run and play, then cuddle up to recharge. This fun-loving pup will also love a well-matched canine friend and adults who are ready to work with him on new tricks and skills. He'll be so excited to find his home and family! Could that be with you? Ask about Rocket Power today!
Come meet your new best friend
