Adopt Me: Rocky wants to get relax-y with you!

This pooch in his Golden Years loves people, attention, treats, walks, and did we mention treats?

BradfordToday, in partnership with the Alliston & District Humane Society, brings you a regular feature highlighting a special pet that is in need of adoption.

“You, me, or nobody else is gonna hit as hard as life.” — Rocky Balboa

It’s true. Life hit me hard, that’s for sure.

My name is Rocky, and I’ve been staying at the shelter for a little while. My owner got sick and had to move away. I had to move, too, from the only place I’ve ever known.

I’m a lover though, not a fighter.

I love people, and I love attention and pets and treats and walks and treats and kisses and...treats. I love just about everything!

One might say I’m in my Golden Years at the age of nine, but I can strut my stuff like any of those younger dogs. They’ve got nothing on me!

I am looking for an adult-only home with no other dogs — it’s a lot of pressure on a guy like me, as I’ve always been an only dog. No small kids either please.

I just want to relax. We can relax together. I’m getting relax-y just writing this!

Please come out and see me. I’ll bark at you, but I’m either just saying, “Hi!” or reciting Rocky movie quotes.
