Rocky is a 13-year-young Golden mix who weighs 55 pounds at our last measurement. His main issue, other than his age, is that he's mostly blind. He has the most trouble in the dark and seeing black items (chairs, gates, etc.), and it helps to have things well lit for him, or to wrap bright fabric around them. He also needs his home free of clutter to reduce the number of items he could run into.
He moves very well for his age. He loves to go on walks, can run, and he handles stairs with competence. In his original home, he was with other animals and got along fine. His current foster home has a Great Pyrenees and he uses it as a seeing-eye dog on walks, and he likes to wrestle it even though it is twice his size. He has no interest in sitting on furniture and prefers his dog bed, or the top spot on the staircase, or wherever he feels like lying. He used an open crate at his temporary foster home, though has no interest in the current foster home. He gets to wander freely when home alone, whereas the Great Pyrenees is kept out of the kitchen (look up "counter-surfing").
Rocky is fully housebroken and lets his humans know when he needs to go out. Unlike his Great Pyrenees foster brother, he doesn't like the cold and will head inside once he does his business. He's mostly quiet and barks only when he hears someone at the door. His hearing, unlike his sight, is quite sharp and he comes when bidden. He loves a good brushing and a snuggle, and ESPECIALLY tummy rubs; though he growls if you try to put your hand under his tummy when he is lying down on his stomach. He is a happy boy and loves to be around his humans. We don't know yet if he likes to swim. He was surrendered to RAGOM in late January. He is very easy to care for and always has a smile.
