How did you meet your canine companion?
My boyfriend and I met Rocky at the Northeast Animal Shelter. The second we saw him we knew he was our little guy!
What’s the story behind your dog’s name?
Rocky's name was originally Reuben at the shelter. We named him after the famous Rocky Balboa because of his unique white mits.
How has your life changed since you have had your dog?
Everything has changed since we got Rocky. He's a certified service dog, and he supports me with my MS symptoms. I never dreamt that I would have such a loyal, kind, and comforting pup. Having a puppy means a lot of outdoor exercise too- which is a plus!
Which 3 words best describe your dog’s personality?
Ridiculous, happy, goofy
Who’s your dog’s favourite person?
I think my boyfriend and I are tied for that one!
What’s your dog’s superpower?
Rocky makes everyone happy. He always looks like he's smiling, which makes it impossible to walk by him without showing some teeth.
If your dog had a job, what would it be?
He would be a rock climbing instructor or a lifeguard. He loves being outdoors and going to the beach, and he thrives when he's helping others.
What’s your dog’s most unappealing / most embarrassing habit?
Whenever I give Rocky a rawhide bone or a biscuit, he has a hilariously embarrassing habit of flinging it around the room out of excitement. He does this for about 15 minutes before he'll eat it.
Where can we find you hanging out with your dog?
Anywhere outdoors - mostly the beach!
