If you're looking for a prancy and playful companion, come meet Lil Rocks! She loves going on walks, prancing next to you like a show horse with her head pointed up, looking up at you with love and admiration in her eyes. Then she'll want to smell everything, and dance in front of trees to look for squirrels.

This fun, active pup will even jump in front of sprinklers and bite the water. At home, she'll play tug and fetch, picking up her little orange football and toys, and bringing them to you to announce she wants to play.

She's an affectionate girl who loves all people she meets, standing on her hind legs to try to kiss their faces. Give her an invitation to the couch and she'll leap up and land next to you for a nap or to watch TV. As a smart pup, she responds to many commands. She's house-trained and goes to her crate when told to "place," staying quietly all night. She also behaves well when home alone.

Lil Rocks is a loyal lady who will thrive as the only pet in a home with adults who can take her for those fun walks she loves. She's so entertaining! Come visit and she'll prance right up to you!
Come meet your new best friend
