Rocky is a great boy but is scheduled to be euth’ed

Rocky is a great dog and is 13-years-old. He is scheduled to be humanely euthanized on Sunday by his veterinarian as per the owner’s request if no one steps up to give this old guy a home.

Asked by animal advocates to help Rocky, the dog is located in New Jersey. Here is his story:

“This beautiful boy is Rocky. There is a lot wrong with him. Mostly blind, allergies, diabetes, hypertension, but all controllable with meds. He’s also 13 years old.

His dad has to give him up because of a demanding job, he can no longer care for him.”

The veterinarian caring for Rocky would like to find a loving home for Rocky; he is a great dog and the veterinarian adores him.

“There is so much right and wonderful with him, [Rocky] friendly, calm, with so much love to give. My friend, who is his vet, wants him to have a loving home, because he is such a great dog, and she adores him.”

Please share Rocky’s plight with approved rescue organizations, friends, family and social media contacts. Sharing saves lives. His story has been shared more than 1,144 times. Surely someone wants to love this old guy.

Update: Someone is interested in helping Rocky, but please continue to share his story until he is safely adopted.
