  • Story

    Hi! I’m Rocket – I am a kissing machine who loves being around people and dogs.

    Rocket came into AARCS’ care after being quilled by a porcupine. After surgery to remove the quills he was moved into our home for foster. He has been an amazing addition to our household. He’s kind and gentle despite being in pain from residual quills still emerging. He has begun to feel well enough to play with the resident dogs in the house, and has always felt well enough for love and cuddles from the humans. Rocket is currently living with 2 larger dogs and 3 kids under the age of 8. He is a wonderful, well behaved dog. He loves going on walks and is working on politely meeting other dogs on leash. Rocket is food motivated and happily uses his manners at meal time and with treats.
