This sweet boy is 1 year old, neutered, microchipped and vaccinated. His former owner says he is house-broken, leash-trained, rides well in cars and knows basic obedience commands. Rocky is friendly with men, women, children and other dogs, and he has become a staff favorite!
For the month of October, adoption fees for both dogs and cats are only $10. The adoption fees include sterilization, vaccinations and a microchip.
