Rocky Success Story

I filled out the application forms for AGAG with uncertainty, wondering if my boyfriend and I would be able to successfully adopt a Golden. Now we have Rocky and he is a total blessing. We wonder how we got so lucky! Now we are simply doing the best we know how to cherish him!

We love Rocky more and more every day! He always knows where his tennis ball is. He is called “Air Rocky” since he can jump so high. Rocky has already mastered “high five” and quickly became a requested visitor at my boyfriend’s firehouse. Rocky keeps us on our toes during our multiple “Rockstar” walks every day. Except at the end of it, he never hesitates to snuggle up and watch the Blackhawks and house renovation shows on TV with us. We can tell he is a fan!

Thank you a million times over AGAG for letting us meet Rocky and ultimately bring him home. There is no doubt – he is a keeper!! We will be forever grateful.

If interested please fill out our online adoption application form; please make sure you fill in every required field/question or your submission will not go through. Please note that we take time to learn as much as we can about each dog in our care and our bios are our current observations; we are unable to make any guarantees on the future health or temperament of your adopted dog. Most dogs in our care come with unknown pre-rescue history and as such breed and age estimates are an educated guess.
