Rocky ~ in Dayton, Ohio

Looking For A Home

Yo, my name is Rocky, like the movie. I am a 6-year-old, 14-pound male Silky Terrier looking for my forever home.

You see, my life has been in turmoil since my mom passed away this spring. My foster dad says I'm a great dog -- I like to follow him around the house.

I am well-behaved on a leash and enjoy going for walks, and I ride well in a car. I like to play with toys, and will play fetch with you. I'll even bring my toy back so you can throw it again and again. I'm such a good boy, I'll let my foster sister keep the toy if she gets it first. But I do get jealous of her sometimes and chase her away from my foster dad; and I occasionally have "words" with her, but you know how sisters can be. I generally ignore her.

I am such good boy -- I don't get in the trash or bother magazines on the table. I don't beg for food, either (but you can find me sitting under the table at meal time just in case).

There are times when I get a little anxious . . . I will bark for a while after you leave me alone. And although I am housebroken, I might tinkle a bit when I get excited or scared. I would do best in a home without children or with only older, respectful children as quick movements and loud noises frighten me. However, that said, thundestorms don't bother me.

Do I sound like the boy for you?
