Rescue Dog of the Month

6 CommentsFriday, 9 March 2018  | 

As keen supporters of rescue dogs and their plight, we really want to do our bit and try to get some of these very deserving dogs a home.

Battersea Dogs and Cats Home logoD for Dog is not a rescue but what we do have is a large audience of amazing dog lovers - all you good people. So we have teamed up with Battersea Dogs & Cats Home to bring you 'Rescue Dog of the Month'.

Battersea Dogs & Cats Home has three centres in South East England - the London centre in Battersea, Old Windsor centre in Berkshire and the Brands Hatch centre in Kent. They rehome animals throughout the UK as long as you are able to come and meet your prospective pet at one of their three centres.

This month we want to tell you about...

rescue dog of the month

Name: Rocky
Breed: Rottweiler cross
Sex: Male
Age: 2 years 7 months
Centre: London
Reference: 361707

This handsome boy does not live up to his boxing champ name and tends to be a bit more of a wallflower. He is looking for new owners who will take their time with him and help him to grow in confidence.

Rocky likes to be praised by his favourite people and we have found that this is a great way to get him feeling more relaxed as he has been finding kennel life stressful. 

Rocky can feel a little worried around other dogs but does like to meet calm and friendly role models. Although he would like to live alone he would like owners that will regularly socialise him with doggy friends.

This sweet Rottweiler cross cannot wait to find his new home and if you are looking for a new companion, Rocky may be the ideal dog for you.

To meet Rocky, please contact Battersea Dogs & Cats Home's London centre on 01784 494443.

Whilst we will put the spot light on one dog a month, you can see all the wonderful Battersea dogs here - Dogs for rehoming. Click on a photo to read more about any of the dogs.

If you are interested in giving any of the dogs a home, please contact Battersea Dogs & Cats Home directly. Please do NOT contact D for Dog. Thank you.

Dexter is a lovely dog, well loved by all us volunteers at Rescue Remedies. He is now in a foster home where he has proven he is the most well behaved boy. He is easy to care for and very loving. He deserves to go to someone who deserves him too as he is very special.

I bet he won't be waiting for long. Just hope people remember it's not looks alone when taking on a dog. Must admit he does look a little sweetheart though. Certainly doesn't look his age.
