A volunteer writes: The little bit of time it takes Rocky to warm up is a small price to pay for his company. . .he is so, so sweet. So sweet that I keep expecting him to caramelize during this summer heat wave! He was with his family since he was a puppy, so it's no surprise that he's can be a little nervous and shy. He is quiet as a mouse in his cage, walks perfectly on leash, and seems very housebroken. We're told he has a high activity level, doesn't have any guarding issues, loves to play with balls, and followed his people around the house. But he did become uncomfortable with the child in the home, and also when things got loud during a sports broadcast, so he might prefer a calm, quiet environment. He lived with a small dog and "they loved each other" -- I don't even need to know the other dog to say this was probably the cutest duo in the five boroughs! When I first met Rocky, he was unsure, but seemed comforted by petting, but after spending more time with him he has proven to be very affectionate. He is waggy when I approach his cage, leans all of his weight against me, sometimes does an adorable lying-under-the-bench-placing-his-head-between-my-feet move, and will prop his paws on my lap and solicit endless cuddles. He is so well-mannered and very much wants to connect with people -- what a gentle, sensitive, sweet little man! Please come give him a chance at Brooklyn ACC.
