Young Male Saluki / Anatolian Shepherd / Mixed
Rocky's Holiday Wish List
Meet (Orange) Rocky! Rocky is a shepherd mix who has been waiting at Husky House for his loving forever home for nearly 5 years! Rocky was originally born in Iran, and his first owners physically abused him, including putting out lit cigarettes on his body. Rocky understandably has difficulty trusting new people and can be snappy when afraid, but is very sweet and loving with those he trusts. Rocky spends a lot of time during the day with Sage, a fellow adoptable who has epilepsy, and he is so compassionate that volunteers have witnessed him protecting her from the other dogs when she has a seizure. Rocky is great with other dogs and even lived in a foster home with cats before coming to the US! Rocky needs to continue his leash training, especially in higher traffic areas. Recently, one of our volunteers has been taking him in his car and driving him to go on hikes at Cheesequake park and he does really well! He will need a home with a fenced in yard, so he can relieve himself and get some exercise while he continues to get comfortable on a leash. Ideally, Rocky’s future family would come and visit several times before attempting to take him home. Interested in fostering or adopting Rocky?
