18 Month old Rocky is so beautiful that he looks like he could be the cover boy for The Golden Retriever News. Yes, Rocky is wet in the photos, he found the swimming pool and he did laps. He is an Olympic class tennis ball fetching machine. He has only been with us a few days and already he has his own fan club.
Rocky had a rough spot in his life. He was found abandoned, with duct tape on his muzzle. That is why we call him Rocky -- he had a rocky time, but he is going to be a winner in the future. We can not imagine why anyone would tape his mouth shut. He is so much fun. He spends his days trying to get humans to throw balls and toys for him. He loves the water and is very athletic and has boundless energy. He can jump shorter fences with ease, so he will need a 5 or 6 foot fence. Rocky is very intelligent, he is very well behaved and quite mellow for a younger golden, he listens well and is eager to please.
Because of what he has been through he will be slow to trust fully. His new family will need to be patient and able to give him outlets for his energy. He is looking for a home with a family that wants someone to jog or run, climb mountain peaks or play Olympic class "fetch" with. If you need an excuse to get your daily exercise, he will help motivate you! We think he is pretty special and he needs a forever home that is really Forever! We bet that you can't meet him without wanting to take him home.
