Looks like I won't be getting Rocky. Apparently there is an almost approved adopter that may be interested in him near where he already is, which is great, but I have to be honest here, I am disappointed as I was looking forward to having him here.

If all goes as planned, I'll be getting foster #18 soon. Rocky. And he's housebroken! Which is really nice because we don't have a fenced yard and it's really cold outside. Housebreaking in the winter sucks!
Here's what we know: Rocky is a 5 yr old tricolor/mahogany rough neutered male. He was sadly surrendered to MWCR by his Dad who has developed severe health problems that prevent him from caring appropriately for Rocky. Dad adopted Rocky from the Milwaukee shelter about a year ago where Rocky was taken in as a stray, so there is little background history. He is a big boy, weighing in at about 75 lbs, and very bushy--but beautiful. He is strong and pulls on a leash, so will probably need to be acclimated to a harness. He needs some help getting into a car, but rides well once he is in and he can get out by himself. Rocky is very social with people and other dogs, good with kids but unknown with toddlers and kitties. No aggression, fears, or anxieties.
