Rock just wants to shred stuffies and make your couch his castle!


The basics

  • My name is Rock
  • On my last birthday, I was 12
  • I am a boy
  • I've been homeless since August 10, 2023

The good stuff

  • My best trick is catching any toy you throw in the air. I'm amazing, I tell ya!
  • Me in three words: laidback, friendly, goofy
  • How I feel about other critters: I'm cool passing by other dogs on my walks, but haven't lived with one before.
  • My absolute favorite thing to do in the world is to shred my stuffies and then take a well-earned nap on the couch!
  • This is what I dream about when I dream about my perfect person or family: a family that is looking for an easy, well-behaved, and low-energy dog. One with an open heart for an older dog with typical aches and pains. All I want is a family to love for the rest of my life. I'm happiest when I'm around my people - now I just need some of my own! There are so many reasons to adopt an older fella like me. I'm house-trained. I'm fine to be left home alone. And neither the mailman nor the doorbell bother me because I've seen (and heard) it all! So can I come chill on your couch? Oh, and no relation to that other "Rock." 🙂
