COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) – Rocky is a 1-year-old Siberian husky mix who has had a string of unfortunate circumstances. He was adopted when he was a puppy and then returned to the Franklin County Dog Shelter and Adoption Center when the family moved to a home that no longer accepted animals. Rocky was adopted again, and then the exact situation happened again.

This youngster is super friendly and gentle on a leash. He is willing to learn new commands and already understands how to “sit.” Of course, he is motivated by treats.

Some of the bonuses with this guy:

  • Enjoys playing and going on walks or runs
  • Perfectly fine entertaining himself
  • Somewhat shy when meeting new people
  • Wants to play with other dogs

The shelter encourages anyone who has a pet to take a few moments and ask potential landlords about their pet policy. The last thing the shelter would want is that your forever dog to be surrendered because a renter forgot to ask a quick question.

As always, any dog that has been at the shelter for more than 14 days can be adopted for free and the purchase of a license for $18.

Also, consider fostering an animal. This allows for the dog to get the medical attention he needs and some extra love and attention away from the shelter.

During August, the shelter plans to host a number of events to participate in the annual nationwide Clear the Shelter campaign. All updates from the shelter can be found here.
