A young dog, still just a pup at 11 months of age, is in desperate need of help. His name is Rocky and he is located at the Los Angeles County Downey facility in California. On August 23, Rocky was surrendered to the shelter by his family for being “too vocal,” and now he is out of time.

Because of his injuries he has not been tested with other dogs. So I wont be able to provide no notes on other dogs.
Of note, though Rocky was not tested with other dogs, he was noted for being “friendly” on intake.
