Hi, my name is Rocket! And that is because I go fast and all day! I came here because the other large dog in the home did not enjoy my company. I enjoyed all of theirs though! I am a high-energy guy looking for an active family that can take me on walks and whatnot! I can be just a tiny bit bashful when I first meet new people, but I warm up within just a couple minutes! Then I am ready to play the day away! I am house-trained, but I may need a refresher course in my new home. I have been around kids before and did great! If there are children in the home, please make sure that I am watched when doors open because I do try very hard to beat you outside. I do need to learn how to walk on a leash because I do a lot of stopping and stalling between your feet, so I could be a tripping hazard! Please do research on the Border Collie (mix) breed as we can be a bit challenging at times. If you would like to celebrate my third birthday, it is on 11/11 of this year! Be my forever family?
