Jai orn • a big softie
An active and playful young dog, Rocky loves spending time rolling around with his pals. But behind this adorable pup’s cheeky smile and energetic personality, Rocky is a big softie at heart who is looking for a home where he can spend his days curling up in his bed and receiving the love he deserves!
Rocky was one of our Christmas pups, left in a box at the gates of our shelter in December alongside his four siblings at only a few months old. Dubbed ‘the Famous Five’, the puppies have become a real gaggle of fun and mischief here on The Farm and it’s been a pleasure to watch them grow into the lively, affectionate and rumbunctious young dogs they are today.
Whilst it may have been an unfortunate start to life, Rocky hasn’t let that hold him back! He lives every day to the fullest and is now ready for the next chapter in his adventure to begin.
Cool as a cucumber, Rocky is a laidback loveable young pup. An affectionate boy, he loves spending time with the team. Whilst he’s not one to turn down a good game with his doggy pals, he prefers the company of humans…that’s where the cuddles come from after all!
Whilst Rocky has all the energy you’d expect from a young dog, he’s happiest when relaxing and likes to sleep off a good play session by sprawling in the sun and treating himself to a premium snooze.
Rocky's perfect home
Rocky gets on well with other dogs, but prefers the company of females. As such, he’d prefer a home of his own or with an older resident female who can help refine his manners! As with most young males living in a shelter environment, he’s learning to navigate relationships with the resident males: as an adolescent, he can sometimes be over-boisterous with the older gents which can lead to the odd squabble.
It’s important to note that this is normal behaviour for teenage dogs and Rocky shows no signs of true aggression or dominance. We’re sure that he’ll thrive in a home of his own where, with a bit of training and consistency, he’ll quickly learn to interact with dogs of all shapes and sizes safely and politely.
Whilst he may be more mellow than his siblings, Rocky still has lots of youthful energy. Play and exercise will be an essential part of his new life, and he’d love to have a garden of his own and plenty of outdoor space to explore on walks. He’s been collar and lead trained and he’s looking forward to exploring the big wide world.
His adopter should be aware that, given that The Farm is the only environment he’s ever really known, it may take Rocky some time to get fully settled into life in a UK home. However, we have no doubt that, with the usual love and patience all rescue dogs need to help the acclimatise, this brilliant boy will make a wonderful addition to one very lucky household!
