Well, hello there! My name is Rockwell. I am a handsome 5-year old male Shih Tzu weighing in at about 14 pounds and cute as a button. I was living outside in a remote area high up on a mountain since last January with someone putting food outside for me. Can you imagine? It is a wonder I survived, and boy I sure like the indoor cushy living at my foster home!
I didn't have a family to call my own until the wonderful people at Village Vet and SBRET decided to rescue me. Currently I am sporting a summer haircut due to all the mats and fleas that were in my beautiful fur so I do get cold easily. A warm sweater or jacket is much appreciated!
I am looking for a family who is home most of the day to help reinforce my housetraining--with a little time and patience I will get it down! I would love a fenced yard but it is not required because I am learning to walk on a leash and harness like a good boy. I enjoy snuggling during the day and love sleeping in my crate at night. I get along just fine with other dogs but do not have to have a furry friend. I should be just fine with older, gentle children. So there you go! I am ready for my forever home! I am microchipped, neutered, had a dental and am up-to-date on all my vaccines and preventatives. I did have one slightly elevated kidney value on my bloodwork and I will have that rechecked the middle of November.
Do you think you could be my special someone? Stop by an event and check me out, remember to ask for Rockwell! My adoption fee is $175.
