A few weeks after buying our first home, my husband and I got the itch - and decided to adopt our first dog!
We found Rocket (then RockyB) through Kanyon's Gold Rescue. He is around 1.5 years old and most likely a border collie/lab mix, possibly some pit bull. We don't know much about his past - only that he was pulled from a kill shelter in Kentucky to get a second chance in PA.
Rocket came to us with a clean bill of health, housebroken, neutered, kid safe, and dog and cat friendly - as a busy couple, this was WAY better than an 8 week old puppy.
His sweet demeanor, intelligence, and willingness to please make it baffling that he spent so many months waiting to find a home. Now that he lives with us, several friends want to clone him for his good behavior! He is even winning over our cat, Storm, who had no prior dog experience. She struts her stuff and tries to cause trouble - but Rocket knows better.
It's only been a little over 2 months, but this dog is already a RockStar.
