Rocket

Shih Tzu - Senior - Male
Adoptable Small Spayed/NeuteredUp-to-date with routine shotshousetrainedPrefers No Cats

Rocket is about 12 years old. He has lived a hard life, he has never been properly cared for before. But he holds no grudges, this boy loves people, kids too. Rocket can be picky with his dog friends, he can be a bully, but he could live with another dog just fine. Cats are a no go with Rocket though, they are too much fun to chase. Being part Shih Tzu, he requires regular grooming, and he has chronic eye issues so will probably need eye drops for the rest of his life. Rocket also takes daily pain control medication, both to help with his eyes and also with his front leg, which tends to turn in too far (as a result of long-time matting, his leg has now deformed slightly). Rocket loves to play and interact with people of all ages. He likes squeaky toys and treats and does fine on a leash. He is also very good in the car. Rocket recently had major dental surgery, he has very few teeth left in his mouth, but must feel alot better! He is ready to find a home of his very own, one that will love him and care for him they way he deserves. We cannot change the past, but we think Rocket has a bright future, his forever family is out there!
