Rocky is a five-year-old boxer-mix, available for adoption through Seattle Humane.
About me: I love to play, and tug is my favorite! I’m also very affectionate and love to cuddle. I enjoy a nice hike, but I’m more of a couch potato.
I love learning tricks and I already know: sit, stay, paw, lie down, roll over, come, go to bed, and kiss (work in progress). I’m really well behaved during my medicated baths, which are due to allergies and dermatitis!
Animal interactions: I have displayed behaviors toward other animals that will require additional caution and good management.
The type of home I’m looking for:
- I need to be the only pet in the home (no cats, livestock, or other dogs).
- My reactivity makes it difficult to be near other animals, so I can’t live in apartment buildings or other densely populated areas.
- I get nervous about sudden movements, so a home with children isn’t a good fit for me.
#WhynotMEpets is a statewide campaign that gives cats and dogs needing more care and attention a greater chance of finding a home as quickly as possible. Its mission focuses on animals that have been homeless for two months or longer; are elderly; have behavior or medical needs; aren’t thriving in the shelter environment; or make up a large percentage of the shelter population, such as bully breeds. These are the animals asking “Why not me?” To learn more, visit pawsitivealliance.org/whynotmepets.
