Rock is a 3 year old, 10 lb Rat Terrier/Chihuahua mix. He is so cute that he has earned many nicknames, like Rock'n Roll, Rocky Racoon, Rocky Roonie and Rocket Man. He was one of 11 little dogs that were surrendered to a shelter. Rock must have had a rough start in life because he was very timid and scared when he came to Humane Tomorrow. He still is, but is making gradual progress every day. He gets along great with the other dogs in his foster home, and likes to snuggle up by the senior dog. He also behaves very well with the resident cat. He loves to go out in the backyard and chase squirrels and roll around in the grass, so Rock needs a backyard. He is crate trained and loves his crate, probably a little too much. He will run into his crate whenever he is startled or scared. He has progessed enough to jump up on the couch by foster mom when she is watching TV, and that was a big deal! Rock needs an adopter who will be very patient while he settles in and overcomes his fears. He loves mealtime and treats, so food is definitely the way to Rock's heart! He becomes a little more brave when treats are offered as a reward. He may do ok with kids, but only if they are gentle with him and willing to be patient. Rock is such a wonderful little dog, and if you are willing to be patient and put in the extra effort, he will be so worth it! Please submit your application at www.humanetomorrow.org.
