Rocko-Diamond Dog! $75 Adoption Fee!
Hello, my name is Rocko. I am a 5 year old Golden Mix that weighs approx. 71lbs. I am looking for a home that has plenty of experience with dogs! I have been known to become quite bonded and protective to the males in the home which has been a problem for previous adopters with women in the home, however having spent some time with the all female staff at RAC, I have fallen in love with the ladies! I do bark (loudly) when I want attention, so don't let that startle you. Between this and my protective nature I will not be suitable for apartments. I have done well with other dogs but a meet and greet is suggested if you have other dogs in the home. I am not suggested with cats (I am far too interested in them) and can be a bit bossy with people when I don't get my way so for that reason, RAC staff would discourage families with kids younger than teen-aged to apply. I am leash trained and house trained once I learn a schedule. I have been waiting for a furever home for 100 days as of 07/08/21 and am now considered a Diamond Dog. I do require an online application approval before a meet and greet can be scheduled. You can complete an adoption application here: RAC staff will be in touch with approved applicants in order to schedule a meet and greet. My adoption fee is $75. I am neutered, microchipped, and up to date on my yearly vaccines. I did test positive for heartworms but have since been treated and need to come back to RAC in November (2021) to be retested to ensure I am heartworm negative!All animals unless otherwise noted in their descriptions are at 1825 Airport Road, Rockwall, TX.
