Meet Rocky The Rotti

**27/4/18 UPDATE from foster carer: Rocky has been having an absolute BLAST these last 2 months with me! We take regular drives to the farm where he gets to enjoy swimming in the dam, running through the paddocks and being a fabulous farm dog. When we're home in Sydney, he and I enjoy his daily walks at the dog park and he keeps me company when at home. His potential home didn't work out due to transport issues and timing, so Rocky is back up for adoption due to no fault of his own. I am really enjoying my time with him, but I have now responded to all email enquiries, and am ready for him to start meeting potential families again!**

Say hello to Rocky The Rotti! He's actually a Rotti x Bull Mastiff and is taller than your average purebred rottweiler, and he is an absolute DREAM!

Coming from a very loving home, Rocky had to say goodbye to his owner just before his 2nd birthday, as they were relocating overseas and were unable to manage the expense of quarantine and flights to take him with them. It was a very hard decision to make for them, and when you meet Rocky you will understand - he is gorgeous!

He is very well trained and doesn't jump up on people, knows how to heel on lead (so doesn't pull), sits and waits for his food, has solid recall and LOVES going for car rides. He is also very well toilet trained and is suitable for apartment living (yes, even big dogs can manage inside with the right lifestyle and daily exercise!).

He is also cat friendly and has ignored the chooks and horses on the farm aswell.

Basically if you are after a fully-trained, loveable companion who will follow you around the house and who is happiest when snoozing at your feet, or walking around the house with his favourite fluffy-toy, then Rocky is for you!

He comes with his very own dog-couch, automatic ball thrower, seatbelt harness (for car rides), clicker (for training), lead, collar, blankie, water/food bowl and toys.
