Pet of the Week - September 16, 2019

"Rocket" A326245

Rocket is a 2 year old neutered male Pit Bull x Pointer mix. He originally came to the shelter as a stray in May. He was adopted after waiting 3 long months in the shelter, but due to no fault of his own was returned after a week. Rocket has consistently done awesome with every person he meets - man, woman and child. He briefly lived with cats and wanted to chase them, so a no-cat household or one with dog-savvy cats AND a slow intro, would be preferred. Initially Rocket was dog reactive but through the work of the playgroup team at MACC, he is now one of the helper dogs for our gentle/dainty crew, which means he does a really good job co-existing with other low-key, friendly pups; with that said we would (and always do!) advise a slow intro to any new dog(s) in the household. Rocket is potty trained and can be left out in the home uncrated while humans are gone. He loves to play with toys (but they better be tough or he will chew them up!) and go for walks.

Rocket's adoption fee has been waived due to a donor covering the fee for a qualifying adopter! If you think your home would be a fit for Rocket come down and meet him!
