Rocky - Adopted on 7/15/2017

Age:  2 years
Gender:  Male
Breed:  Boxer Mix


This sweet boy was saved in the nick of time. He was dumped at a rural southern shelter where there are almost no adoptions, just a never-ending line of people dumping their dogs, especially now that summer is here, school is almost over, and who could be bothered taking care of a pet when there are vacations to go on. The shelter was out of space and Rocky was scheduled to be euthanized in just a few hours to make room for the next group of dogs who were being processed in. The shelter volunteers were so distraught at the thought of Rocky and two other really wonderful dogs being euthanized that they put out another emergency appeal, but no one answered. Not until one of our rescue partners reached out to us, told us how wonderful these dogs are, and asked us if we could save just one of them. Well, of course we couldn't leave the other two behind to face certain death, so Rocky and his friends came to HART.

Rocky is a friendly boy who would love to have a family of his own who will be as loyal and loving to him as he will be to them.
