LOCATED IN WALNUTPORT, PA

Handsome Rocky is a very sweet Mastiff/Great Dane mix. He is friendly but does take a minute to warm up. He has good energy and is a healthy and happy puppy. Rocky loves his foster brothers and sisters, big and small, and plays nicely with them all.  He needs a home with a big fenced in yard and a furry friend to run and play with.  

Likes: Rocky loves to play with toys, especially the squeaky or crackly type.  He is learning his commands and would do well with a training regimen.

Dislikes: Rocky does well alone but needs his toys otherwise he may find things to play with that he shouldn’t if left alone and not crated. Rocky crates well and has learned to go to his crate for his meals.

Personality: Friendly but a bit shy still and energetic, like most puppies.

Temperament: Great with other dogs and with people, including kids.

Energy level: Good energy - puppy energy.

Favorite activities : Playing, learning new things, being loved.

Good with cats, dogs, and kids (over 6):  Great with people and other dogs; Cats unknown

Housetrained: He's working on it! He needs a doggie door or a regular schedule.

Crate trained: Yes

Requires a fenced yard (physical fence)?  Must have a solid fenced in yard. This is non-negotiable. 

Walks well on a leash:   Rocky is still learning leash manners but with time will progress will.

Challenges:   Getting him to feel confident with new people, especially men. 

Any Medical issues? None known.

What would be the best kind of home? Rocky would benefit from a work from home family with other dogs (and kids are okay too). Another large breed confident dog for Rocky to play with would be ideal so he could learn the ropes and gain confidence himself. He's looking for a family that likes activity and will give him time to adjust and settle in. Rocky has a lot of love to give and is ready to find his people!
