#8597 Rockee

Medium-size, Male, Adult Hound x Labrador Retriever,
Rockee is up-to-date on his shots and has been neutered. Rockee is currently being fostered in Hanover, PA.

Hi! My name is Rockee and I'm part of the 50s themed transport. I'm guessed to be a hound mix and I'm about 3 years old. I'm a sweet boy and I currently weigh about 58lbs. I love meeting new people old and young. I have been curious, and polite with the cats I have met. I'm not so sure about other dogs. I will need long, slow introductions. I would do best as an only dog or with a more mature, and calm sibling.

Since I'm a little bit older, I know the rules about crates and potty. I haven't had any accidents in my foster house. I see my crate as a safe haven. I love to lean in for a good pet. I know "sit", but I love treats so much that I haven't figured out "down". I'm pretty good at coming when called unless there is something super interesting to smell. I walk great on a leash especially with the harness my foster mom got for me. It's a lot easier than those collars that bump up against my ears.

I love taking slow walks in the neighborhood and smelling all the smells. I enjoy playing with stuffed toys and ropes the most. I'd be great in an apartment or a house with a yard. I just need a good walk at least once a day and I'm content to hang out. I will miss you when you leave to go to work and howl as you go to wish you well. I've traveled a long way to find my furever home. Is it with you? If so, please fill out an application. I won't be available for long!

This dog tested positive for heartworm disease before arriving to the rescue. Heartworm disease is transmitted to a dog through a bite from an infected mosquito producing a positive test in six months. The dog was treated for the disease prior to transport north. Potential adopters will receive detailed information on the disease and their role in completing the recovery process from OPH’s heartworm coordinator. With monthly preventatives, the disease is completely preventable. Read more about heartworm disease here here

This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
