altRocky (ADOPTED) is almost 11 months old; a beautiful border collie and shepherd mix who is about 45 pounds. He is very friendly with people and is extremely friendly and playful with other dogs.  He is NOT a dominant dog and will go with the flow, quickly realized when exposed to 8 other dogs at one of our foster sites. Rocky did well with everyone and just wanted to play. He does have a lot of energy and loves to play ball.

Rocky will need some basic obedience training. He never wants to let the party end and may protest a bit when left alone.  His former owner says he's completely house trained and crate trained as well. He also does well with cats and children.

Rocky will bond closely with his people; a sweet and gentle soul who will make the most devoted companion. And look at his beautiful smile!
