“If you know what you’re worth, then go out and get what you’re worth.” —Rocky Balboa

This sweet Shepherd/Terrier mix is worth so much love. Time for him to “go out and get” what he deserves!

Like the famous boxing character, multicolored canine Rocky is hard-working, humble, and lovable. He also loves his exercise! This 52-pound boy requires multiple walks a day and will happily accompany you on a jog or a swim. Rocky LOVES his walks and will give an excited howl when you bring out the leash. Given his high energy, Rocky would do best in a home with a yard he can run around in. He would also be fine in a home with other dogs; he is always friendly and loves to play with any canine companions.

Like his namesake, Rocky will put the work in for the reward. His foster says he is a very fast learner and has already mastered several commands (“sit,” “no,” “paw,” “shake”). You can count on this 18-month-old to play by the rules: he is good in his crate and never chews on anything that isn’t his. Rocky is also housebroken and never barks. 

Friendly with all and a fan of cuddles, Rocky is a knockout. Fill out an application for this handsome guy before someone beats you to the punch!

Also, please know that the breed mix listed is simply a guess. In most cases, we don’t know their background. We encourage you to base your decision on individual personality and pet qualities instead of relying on our guess.
