** LEVEL 1 RATED SWEETHEART! ** ROCKY EARL WANTS A FAMILY TO SPEND HIS SUMMER DAYS WITH!
A volunteer writes: “Rocky Earl is beautiful inside and out, so if his teefy smile doesn't instantly win you over, his affectionate heart and playful spirit soon will. 8 years young and full of fun, he loves balls and plush toys and keeps his eyes firmly on the prize at all times, following my hand like a hawk until the blissful moment when the tennis ball sails through the air and he can sail after it. Rocky knows how to come and sit on command and he'll mostly wait for your throw, but if you make him wait too long you might find yourself face to face with a pair of pleading eyes you can't refuse! He appreciates petting, especially side rubs, and is a great walker, seemingly house trained and very good with fellow pups on leash or off. In other words...a perfect family pet! Rocky is one of the good guys and he comes complete with everything you want and nothing you don't, an easy to love sweetheart who'd fit into any active home with ease. This rock star is still waiting for his big break at our Manhattan Care Center, ask to meet him today!” Hurry and message our page or email us at MustLoveDogsNYC@gmail.com for assistance fostering or adopting this little slice of heaven!

*** NEW NYC ACC RATING SYSTEM ***
Dogs with Level 1 determinations are suitable for the majority of homes. These dogs are not displaying concerning behaviors in shelter, and the owner surrender profile (where available) is positive.
Dogs with Level 2 determinations will be suitable for adopters with some previous dog experience. They will have displayed behavior in the shelter (or have owner reported behavior) that requires some training, or is simply not suitable for an adopter with minimal experience.
Dogs with Level 3 determinations will need to go to homes with experienced adopters, and the ACC strongly suggest that the adopter have prior experience with the challenges described and/or an understanding of the challenge and how to manage it safely in a home environment. In many cases, a trainer will be needed to manage and work on the behaviors safely in a home environment.
