ID# A1789015 – Rocket is a 2 year-old, Black, American Pit Bull Terrier mix. If you are looking for a wonderful companion, don’t look further than Rocket. He is a very smart dog, knows “sit” and with a little bit of patience he can learn more. Rocket would like very much to work on his leash training and would likely turn out to be a great hiking or walking partner. Rocket would be so appreciative to have an owner who enjoyed giving him petting sessions as much as he enjoys them, as well as tossing him a snack or two. If you would like to meet Rocket, please stop by the Eastside shelter and join our virtual line.
