Rocky

Sex:  Male
Breed:  Pit Mix
Age:  2 Years
Welcome back Rocky to the Mutt Militia!  Rocky had been previously adopted out by good family, but he had developed some insecurities over the time he was in their care.  Since he was reactive to new people, we felt it was best to take him back and get him some training to help him work though his insecurities and find a home that matched his personality.  He's spent a few weeks with our trainer Robert Villanaeda to get him back into being a more secure dog.  From there hes headed to foster care to take him even further along his journey to adoption.  Rocky is looking for an adopter who will take him out into the world meeting new people and places.  He would be best in a home with another dog buddy to be pals with, and looking for a human that is a strong pack leader to make him feel secure in the world.  Hes good with kids as long as they are respectful of him.  Rocky is a good boy who is looking for the right people to continue his training education and open up the world to him.  If you're looking for a pup like Rocky please apply to adopt him today!
