Description
If you feel Rocky is a good fit for your family, please take the time to FULLY read our adoption process found at www.collierescuenetwork.com. You will find our adoption application there, please note that inquiries without an accompanying application will not be responded to (we are all volunteers and serious inquires with an application help us to manage our time better, we thank you for understanding).

Rocky is a sweet, friendly 2-4 year old boy who LOVES to cuddle and snuggle with his people. He is a big high-energy and will do well in a home that keeps him busy and active with a few walks a day and some playtime in his yard. Because he came to us as a stray originally, he will need a fully fenced backyard in his new home where he cannot get out to wander off.

He\'s a trusting, playful boy but, typical for the breed, can be stubborn. Someone used to the bully breed and understanding this will be needed (knowing it is NOT punishment he needs but encouragement!). He would really, really love to sleep in your bed if you\'re so inclined. He will sleep on a doggie bed in your room if not (but he really loves to snuggle at night!). He does NOT like to be crated for long periods. He came to care with wear marks on his elbows, indicative of being immobilized (likely crated) for long periods of time; now he\'d prefer not to be crated thank you very much.

Rocky has good recall and nice walking manners but can pull while on-leash occasionally when he feels he needs to Go Over THere Right Now Please. Someone used to bully breeds and their strength when they decide to head off on their own direction is needed!

Rocky is good with other dogs and will be fine with another laid-back dog in the house but would also love to be the only dog and soak up all the love himself. He would NOT be good with kitties though, so a no cat home is needed. We\'re not sure about kids, he\'s very sweet, very gentle but as we have no real experience with him and small children, he will be adopted to a home with kids 12+.

He is very food motivated, which makes training time fun and easier than with other dogs. Someone who wants to spend time with Rocky, playing and training at the same time will have a ball seeing what this smart little boy can learn.

Rocky has food allergies and we\'re slowly working out what food might be best for him. Note that his new home will need to stick to the food we find works for him. Otherwise he gets almost constant ear infections and itchy skin. He may very well do best on a pre-made raw diet, available at many pet food supply stores.

If you feel Rocky is your boy, please fill in the online application found at www.collierescuenetwork.com and fully read our adoption process before sending an inquiry. Rocky will ONLY be adopted in the province of Saskatchewan.
