I'm staying with the rescue furever!


Meet Rocket! He is our senior, adorable Schipperke mix. He was dumped at the shelter in his old age and his family abandoned him. We couldn't let that happen so we took him in, got him some medical care, and now he is ready to spend the rest of his life with his forever family. We named him Rocket because although he is only 6 pounds and a senior, he is speedy and likes to run around the dining room table at his foster home. He also really loves his foster mom and follows her everywhere she goes, but his favorite thing is when she holds him like a baby so he can fall asleep. Rocket doesn't have any teeth, so he has to be hand-fed his meals. He loves his food, but it's too difficult to eat out of a bowl. Other than hand-feeding him, he is a happy and healthy little boy.
