Rescue of the Month

March 2008 ~ Meet Rocket

Gender: Male

Age:  2 years

Location:  Iowa

Rescue Group:  Iowa Golden Retriever Rescue, Inc. (IGRR)

Out of State Adoptions:  Yes, in some cases.


Bio:  Look at Rocket, a two-year-old golden retriever who is full of energy!  As this big boy continues to learn about house manners and the proper way to play, he is showing a lot of smarts. Rocket is already housetrained and crate trained. Ideally, he needs a home at which he will have one or more jobs!

Rocket is looking for a retriever-savvy family.  He needs a fenced area in which to run, and he requires a decent amount of exercise to keep him healthy and happy.  Rocket is fine with older children, but he can sometimes be a bit too exuberant for young ones, so we recommend that he goes to a home without small children.  In the right home, Rocket will reach his great potential!
