More About Me
Likes, Dislikes, Fears, Endearments and Quirks
Loves attention, lounging around and spending time with his owner but is not playful or treat motivated.
Rocky is frightened of thunderstorms and fireworks. Rocky does not like being confined in small spaces including small rooms or small yards. He likes a routine, is good company and very smart.
Someone home more often than not looking for a loyal companion.
As Rocky is people orientated he needs to be part of family activities.
He will not suit homes with residents that are very young, frail, elderly, renters or time poor.
Type of Yard Required
Medium to large interesting and secure. Rocky may wander off if a gate or door is inadvertently left open and won't come back.
Low - short strolls or playtime at home.
Tolerance to Being Alone During the Day
Will alert to something strange but is not currently a nuisance barker. Will also bark if bored and alone.
He will suit any of the following:
When ON a lead ...
Like most dogs he starts off pulling but settles. He walks well on a short lead. Rocky is strong.
When OFF a lead ...
As Rocky can be stubborn and independent he takes off and won't come back.
