Meet Rocky! BSR #1221 posted 5/14/20
Hello everyone, my name is Rocky. I’ve been told I am about two years old, but truthfully, I’m not so sure about my birthday. I spent several months at a shelter before BSR rescued me. You would think that an extended stay in the shelter might have broken my spirit….no way! I am so happy and fun loving.
I am very active and enthusiastic boy, full of energy and enjoy the outdoor life. I weigh about 40 pounds, not chubby, but actually rather tall and slim. My long legs help me run super fast; a good skill for chasing birds and squirrels. While I like to play during the day, I adore snuggling on the sofa with my people at night.
I follow my foster mom everywhere and stay close to her whenever I can. I don’t adhere to those silly social distancing rules! I like my dad, but there is something about my mom. Actually I have liked all the people I have met since signing up with BSR. I like people, I like dogs and I especially like my foster cat. I like running a mile or two with my mom, beach time, swimming, walks in the woods and backyard time. I am a good cook, yep you read that right, I have helped my mom perfect her pimento cheese recipe. She appreciates a food critic in the house.
There is one thing I don’t care for, it’s called a leash. My foster mom has worked hard to help me figure it out. At first I pulled really hard. Now I am learning to go at her pace. I wish she could be just a bit faster, there is so much to see and do and I don’t have all day. I still have a ways to go to really be a good walker, but I am working at it. Don’t tell anyone, but I used to be a counter surfer, I even ate a whole bag on my dad’s gingersnap cookies. I am learning that counter surfing is a crime and people don’t like dogs doing it! So I am reforming. But every now and then it’s so tempting to peek up there and see what might be available. Mom and dad keep the food put away to help me stay honest. Whatever works for them.
I am usually tired at night and like to have a treat and go into my kennel around 9:30 P.M. I sleep well and am always recharged and ready to go by 8 A.M. The kids on my street think I am cute. They adore my exceptional topknot and crooked little smile. You will also. My jaw is a little bit crooked but doesn’t cause me any trouble. Sometimes I’m a bit of a messy eater. I prefer my dry dog food with a little something soft mixed in, it’s easier to eat when you have a million dollar smile like mine.
I’d like to have my people home but I have learned that they always come back. I like to know where they are at all times. When I first arrived at my foster home I had a few pee pee accidents when I got excited. I don’t do that much anymore. I would like access to a pond, lake or the beach, swimming is a blast!
My foster mom and dad would like me to continue my education. When I arrived I did not know what “sit” meant. They taught me to sit so easily. I think I am a very smart Boykin. I am learning to retrieve. I would like to get a chance to learn things like come and stay. They don’t think I can be trusted yet off leash, so a fenced yard with squirrels is a must. I especially need more patient instruction on walking without pulling. I also need people to play with me, talk to me, pet me, snuggle me and just tell me how fabulous I am. If you can do all this while still having another dog in the house that won’t be jealous, we can talk. A kitty in the house would be nice. I love my foster cat, even though he sometimes gives me corrections. Thank you for reading about me. I am not just another pretty face.
Hey there, I'm Hank! At just 1 year old, I'm an energetic young man with a curly coat that's as wild as I am. I weight about 30 pounds, but I'm still trying to bulk up and gain my adult weight. I'm a very well-behaved boy, and I'm eager to spend as much time with my people as possible. I know my basic commands (sit, stay, down) and I would love to learn more! I love to cuddle and if my foster mom is sitting still, I always try to wiggle into her lap.
My favorite hobbies include playing with my foster brothers, snuggles and zooming around the yard. I really like to ride in the car with my humans, but I get car sick if someone doesn't sit in the back with me.
Even though I am 1, I still act very much like a young puppy. I need to be reminded to go out every few hours to go potty or I forget and try to go in the house! I'm okay in a crate as long as my foster brothers are near and I don't feel alone. My fosters are also working on teaching me not to jump and other typical puppy behaviors. All in all I am a VERY good boy even though I still need some training to help me reach my full potential.
The best home for me is with humans who can give me as much attention as I can stand! People who are home as much as possible and will take me on adventures and snuggle with me at night would be the best! If I’m going to be home alone while my parents are out, I probably need another dog to keep me company, even if our crates are just by one another. I am still a young and active Boykin and would love a new home where I could go on walks every day and maybe swim too. Continuing my obedience training will help me be the best Boykin I can be. I would be great with respectful kids who are old enough to play with me without hurting me. I'm hoping you might want to give me my perfect forever home!
