I initially took “Rocky” as a foster, but adopted him shortly after his arrival. He came from a shelter in PA from my understanding. I had him for five years, and he passed away approximately two years ago (09-30-2017) due to a neurological problem which my vet said would result in his inability to walk in a few months. I stayed with him while he passed on so he was not with strangers. He loved sweet potatoes, and loved to have a bath. If he heard the shower, and I didn’t have the shower door shut, he would walk in the shower and sit down waiting for his bath. He was not friendly, and was aggressive to people he did not know which makes me suspect he had been neglected, starved and physically abused by the people who initially owned him. He was a happy dog in my house and stuck to me like glue on our nine acre property, it was just the two of us, and that was ideal for him. He was in his own way, a good dog, and I’m glad I had him with me. I have his remains in my house with my previous rescued Boxer, Heidi, who had passed on several months before Rocky/Rowan came. I feel very safe with their wonderful spirits, souls.
