My Story


Rocket seems to be fitting in just well. When we arrived home with him it took about 10 mins for Charlotte and Rocket to start acting like they were old friends. It was a great transition. Within the week we have had Rocket, he has made himself right at home. It feels as if he has been with us a lot longer then that already. He is so gentle and playful. My two daughters adore him and are constantly playing with him. Rocket loves to be outside just like I was told. When I tell him it's time to go in he looks at me like not yet. Meanwhile, Charlotte has learned to open our sliding glass door to let herself in. Complete opposites on being outside. 
    I can happily say that Rocket is a great addition to our family, just what we were looking for. I can easily see why you received so many applications for him. We are very pleased to be the family to be able to enjoy Rocket's companionship. So, thank you so much for choosing us. 
    I have been in contact with Debbie since we picked up Rocket. I have to say how pleasant her family was to us during the pick up. We felt very welcome in their home and not rushed in anyway. My youngest daughter keeps asking me when we can go back so she can play with their rottweiler, Pheonix. lol.  


Rocket at play!


Rocket has continued to thrive in our home the last couple weeks. Santa brought him some toys and he has learned to play ball (in the house). He is getting along with all 3 dogs and enjoys rough housing with them. Rocket celebrated his 2nd birthday on December 14th and I have to say, with having many dogs come through my door, this boy is a very well behaved boy for his young age. He gets into mischief, but he is still a young babe. He can play extremely rough and tough and the next minute curl up and cuddle with his humans. He is a total cuddle bug. We are having issues with itching and scratching. Under the advice of our vet we have him on a "seafood" based diet. We will update as time goes on as we figure out what is causing the itching. Rocket will need a home with a fence so he can go outside and run off some of his young enery. I am also keeping the "Good with Children" as I mentioned in my previous post he came from a family with 2 children. My 3 year old niece visited during the holiday and he was fine with her. Rocket is a total sweetheart and love.


Rocket came to us on Saturday, November 29th from a home with children. I listed in the section "Good with Children" as "unknown" because my children are a lot older. I do not know what ages of children he lived with prior to coming to us. Rocket will be celebrating his 2nd birthday on December 14th. He is a typical "teenage" Boxer. He is high energy and fun and at times mischievous....but his cute little face lets him "almost" get away with it. Rocket was a single pet and is now living with 3 resident dogs. A 3 year old male boxer (they are not buddies yet but are tolerating each other-possibly because Rocket came into our home un-neutered - the neutering took place today), a 6-7 year old Boxer Female - they get along, and Rocket's absolute favorite buddy of all is a 5 year old Rottweiler that has unending energy (at least we thought she had un-ending energy until Master Rocket joined our family). Needless to say, while Rocket was at the vet today getting his neuter, all the dogs slept soundly ALL DAY!!! LOL Rocket will be back at home tomorrow and we are excited to see him. He has had a lot of changes in his short time with us. Once he is home, we will begin to get him on our schedule and start working on crate training and more manners. The weather hasn't been great - but he does need work with the leash.
