Rocky's Story: Rocky's owner had to give him up due to no fault of Rocky's. Rescue Remedies offered a Rescue place saving his life. Rocky is not for cats. Rocky is now neutered, chipped, and fully vaccinated. Rocky is in Foster whilst awaiting his new family.

If you are interested in rehoming one of our dogs, please complete our ONLINE HOMING QUESTIONNAIRE. It is always the first step in our rehoming process. Upon application, you must be ready to take in your new dog within seven days. For more detailed information, please see our Homing Process.

Please support our work and help our long stay dogs: Our minimum adoption donation is £175. This supports our continuing rescue work and is non-refundable. We exist solely due to the goodwill and donations of our supporters and volunteers. Our dogs need supportive families who will offer them patience, time and tolerance whilst they settle in their new homes. Our Rescue offers all our dogs back-up for life.

Please note: Dog laws have changed, with zero public tolerance and prejudice against bull breeds and terriers. Our Rescue asks new owners to keep their dog on a lead in public spaces and manage and support its encounters with new dogs and people, so as not to place the dog's life at risk. Destruction and Control Orders are commonplace nowadays.

Rocky's progress through our Rescue is below.
We work with our dogs, who often reveal a different picture and positive skills as they build trust.
Original Referral information:
Emergency call from owner as due to accomodation he had to give Rocky up. He tried rehoming but no one gave him any stability. Rocky came into our care on the 10th December 2018 and was neutered on the 11th December.

Rocky is a smashing boy, young, friendly, connected and soft as butter and very endearing. He greeted me happily in his kennel bringing me his toy bunny. love4.gif
With a new harness and collar fitted (Rocky picked up his old collar and placed it carefully in his bed. Bless!) we headed out. For a youngster he was amazingly calm and very well behaved walking on the lead. He does the occasional excited leap forward but he gives lots of eye contact and is easily handled. He walked nicely with Ethan (also a young boy) initially more interested in his walk but as we let them get close and interact, it was lovely to see them go into play mode. He is a little sad and bewildered to find himself in kennels (which you can see in the photos) and as we were finishing taking his photos he got rather nervous and worried and took the lead in his mouth for comfort. He seems to like to hold the lead if he is worried. I love this boy!

Here's Rocky the mastiff earlier doing his puppy dog eyes, he's not even a year old yet, and he's a great dog.

That Face !!! He is sooo scrummy and cute
So I met Rocky for the first time today, He's a young boy so he has excited playful moments especially if you stop and chat as we walkers usually do ! A little bouncing , holding of the lead , thinking it's playtime " Come on stop chatting " then he gets your undivided attention and were off again .
A ball or the smell of treats will easily distract him and he continues to walk happily along.

He's very easy on the lead once you get going and he doesn't pull at all , He has definatley had some training as he demonstrates good lead skills for such a young age .
He loves a sit, paw and treat and walked parallel very calmly next to his kennel friend Ethan .Both dogs were a pleasure to walk and they really enjoyed each other's company .

He met Roxie ( ex RR ) today and happily play bowed for her attention as Ethan looked on ,He's also connected with his surroundings and keeps himself busy exploring and sniffing as he goes .
A fantastic young boy who hopefully will be in a home very soon.

We were going to spread the meetings over a couple of days but why would you keep a pup in kennels if you don't have to? So little man had quite the busy afternoon proving himself with cats and Cookies thumbs.gif
SUCH a fun homing, watching him bomb around the paddock whilst Cookie told him to calm his paws was joyous!

Lesson in perspective, Cookie is about 3 times Rockys size! (Name change promised)

Rocky is a truly fantastic boy and settled in brilliantly. He's very bright and a quick learner, fun, loving, cuddly, great with the resident dog and all other dogs he's met whilst out and about, no problems around food or toys, great with people of all ages (including my 3 year old nephew) - no issues in the home or out at all, just a typical young male pup. The one and only reason he can't stay with us permanently is the fact that, unfortunately, he has become quite fixated with the resident cats and will chase them at every opportunity so needs a home without any of kitties.....such a shame [cry.gif]
