Absolutely delighted that Rocky has got himself such a good home! He was my regular walking dog at Guildford virtually from the time he came into kennels. I saw him mature into a super little boy. Thank you for offering him a home. Enjoy good times ahead positivo1.gif

Great to hear Rocky had a good vet check up. When he first came in to kennels he really struggled with cars, lunging at them from the pavement (scary!) and we worked on that with him. He seemed a lot calmer when he returned from his foster break, which showed that once he is settled in a home he's less prone to being jumpy. So pleased to hear he's settling in really well, such a lovely little boy.

Hi Rocky's family. So lovely to hear he is doing well. He always was a lively little fella so I am not surprised when you say he just wanted to 'go for it'. I always said he has a heart like a lion! As has been said by one of the other walkers Rocky did sometimes react to passing cars. Hopefully the longer he is with you and feeling safe he will gradually stop. Lucky little boy he is having such a good home! Heart fill with love.gif]

Just a few pictures of our recent outing up Whernside. Rocky is enjoying these lovely walks, as you can see. Will continue to keep you all updated on Rockys many new adventures.
Cheers

I’m so happy to see Rocky having such a good time. He looks very well loved! He was a little put off by the train after his first walk over the railway bridge. He seemed interested the first time but reluctant to go to the bridge after that. But after a little coaxing he was fine. I don’t know his history but he did seem to be looking for a young man. One time a young man came out of his house while we were walking by and Rocky was very pleased to see him and wanted to follow (in a very happy way).

:smiley-bounce016.gi: love these updates guys , Rocky is a smashing boy. Real character .
He definitely had nerves with cars as Dymphna said but time and support with that will show him they aren’t that scary after all
Thank you for loving Rocky and give him a cuddle from us x
