Rocky von Barth

Rocky von Barth is a striking 18-month-old Belgian Malinois mix. Prior to Westside rescuing him, Rocky lived his life hooked up outside on a 3-foot chain. It's no wonder that he has months of pent-up energy to release (makes for a great jogging companion) and some socialization and manners to learn. Rocky is undergoing leash training through diligent corrections that will help him focus and quell his anxiety. He is a little unsure when meeting other dogs but, once he is comfortable, Rocky is happy to walk with his new friends. In playgroups, Rocky is a bit more confident, arriving with energetic greetings and a happy attitude. This somewhat stubborn-at-times boy will try to show off his manliness around un-altered males, so is still benefiting from the structure of supervision. Rocky’s perfect forever home will be with an experienced dog handler who is committed to his training and helping Rocky realize his potential. We have watched many diamonds-in-the-rough like Rocky transform into well-behaved, loyal companions in the right adult only home.
