Pet of the Week: Rocky the Terrier Mix

Rocky, a recently surrendered Terrier mix remains a little nervous, but is slowly warming up to the shelter environment.

He has been groomed by Diana Norwood of “Yours Truly Diana’s,” and looks like a brand new dog. He has his summer cut and is ready for fun in the sun with a brand new family.

Rocky has been enjoying the company of some of the shelter dogs, particularly Wriggs, and he would probably enjoy a canine friend to hang out with while his humans are away.
