In shelter Dog

Queen Creek, AZ, 85142
Pet name:
German Shepherd Dog
We first met Rocko at the pound where we were going to pull him but we were told he had a foster home that was going to take him. A couple days later we were contacted by the pound and they wanted to know if we were still interested in pulling him.

My first question was "why did they bring him back?"

"Because he chewed on their couch."

"Didnt they crate train him?"

"No, they dont believe in crates."

Rocko is a high energy boy and does need training and if you leave a high energy boy to his own devices he will find a way to entertain himself! Rocko does get along with other dogs and shares his kennel with 2 females that can help keep him busy. He does need training, it is doubtful anybody has ever spent time working with him and his manner reflect that. He loves people and would most likely chase cats.
