We learned quickly that Rainer, MN, has a no-leash policy for dogs, Nevertheless, we kept Rocky on his leash in accordance with RAGOM's policy, and he behaved marvelously, considering his past tendencies to react negatively to other dogs.
During our first walk, we were greeted by four dogs who circled us and wanted to interact/play. Rocky did not bark or growl once during this encounter; he simply watched his foster mom for directions and took treats for his good behavior. He is intrigued by other dogs, but once he greets them, he'd prefer if they left him alone!
All in all, we are very proud of the tremendous progress Rocky has made, especially in the way he looks to us for leadership when we meet other dogs. With continued training as well as bonding with his new family, Rocky will excel as a faithful companion.
Rocky continues to tolerate changes in his fosters' busy lifestyles, but definitely prefers a normal routine at home. If you're someone looking for a loyal companion and love being home, Rocky would make a wonderful addition to your life!
