Hi!  My name is Rocky.  I was surrendered to a shelter on 5/15 by my owner due to lack of time to adequately care for me. My owner had me since was a puppy and said I am fearful around new people and do best with female dogs. I was very afraid at the shelter, but it was very crowded and there was a lot going on. I warmed up to the staff and they fell in love with me which is why they contacted NECPV to find a place where I would be happier.

I am being fostered with a family with kids and a male dog and wasn't fearful even when I first arrived but the area wasn't closed in so that might have helped. They said I did great the first day I arrived and have been getting along with their male dog. He is an easy going guy in general though. I've mostly been ignoring their cats. I'm good in a crate. By day number two, I was already very happy when any of my new foster family would come into the room. I like to jump up and lick them and am quite exuberant. I love to play and mostly play by myself. I like to run around with a toy in my mouth. I let the family take the toy from me though when they want it and let them touch my feet, ears, etc. when they want to. I love belly rubs!

Once you meet me and I warm up to you, I think you will fall in love with me too. I am being fostered in Reston, Va.
