Rocky feels like an old soul. With his kind almond eyes, lovable Lab-like face and laid-back nature, it’s easy to forget his days as a stray pup when he was found on the mountain streets near Jocotepec, Mexico. He is calm and patient, cautious and wise, quick to learn and quick to become a friend. He may be shy at first, but he warms right up and would love nothing more than some quality cuddles. Rocky does great on leash and harness. He has also started training on some classic cues like: “ Sit, down, leave it, find it,” and more! However cool and collected this adolescent may be, certain new situations or people can make him nervous. The ideal home for Rocky would let him take things slow and give him the tools he needs to be the confident and courageous little pup we know he is!
