ACCT Valentine – Rocket!



Meet the handsome and charming Rocket! Rocket is a 3-5 yr old (probably closer to 3) Terrier/Pit Bull mix weighing around 50lbs. Rocket was picked up as a stray by Animal Control officers but this boy definitely had a home before. Besides his beautiful coat of fur, he knows commands and seems to be housetrained. He should be able to steal anyone’s heart within minutes of meeting him. He loves to give you hugs…that’s right, dogs can give kisses AND hugs and Rocket is a great hugger! He has done pretty well on his dog meets and walk-alongs that he has had at the shelter but please bring any resident dogs down to meet him to make sure they are a good fit for each other. Rocket has met kids over 10 and did great with them. He even listened to them when they were telling him to “sit”, “stay” and “come”! He is a smart boy who is very food motivated so teaching him new commands shouldn’t be too much of a challenge. He has some playful energy yet he is also content to sit by your side. If you are out on a walk and stop to talk to someone, he likes to try and sit on your feet and will wait patiently. He would make a great companion! This boy has it all – looks, personality, and brains! Please come down and meet him today and see for yourself!

Rocket is enrolled in the pen pal program and this handsome boy has 2 pen pals working with him! If you would like to find out more information about Rocket, you can email Jamie at
