Rocky

Rocky the Rock Star!
# 3635
HAS BEEN ADOPTED!

Update April 14: Geordie as he is now known has undergone surgery to repair his torn cruciate ligament.

Update: Monday, March 14: Rocky was scheduled to join his new family this past weekend, but we had concerns about his leg and decided to delay his adoption and have x-rays done to rule out any serious issues. Sadly, the results of the x-rays were not good.
Rocky has some issues with his hips -- they are very loose. We are taking a conservative approach and hoping to correct the issue through exercise.
Of more concern is that Rocky has an injured knee, with a partially torn cruciate ligament. This will likely require surgery by an orthopedic specialist and we will need to have surgery done prior to placing Rocky into an adoptive home.
Rocky is the third Newf in our care right now who will require surgery for a torn cruciate ligament.
Your support is needed now more than ever to help us raise the funds to cover the cost of these specialized surgeries.


His face says it all - yes, he really is that adorable.

Rocky is a 5 month old darling - friendly, playful, and sweet as can be.



Rocky came to us following a very unfortunate change in his family situation. We wish them well in the days ahead.
