My name is Rocky! I’m a big beautiful boy GSD and am about 5 years old. I am overweight but still a big boned guy. My ideal weight would be about 90 pounds.

I am friendly and enjoy meeting new people however I’m not demanding. I also live with kids and am good with them.

I’ll need someone who will provide me with regular moderate activity and be committed to helping me lose some unwanted weight.

I am currently rarely leashed for walks but with a little practice will make a wonderful walking partner. I also enjoy car rides and would love to pal around with my new family.

I enjoy playing ball too.

I’m used to being outside but we GSDs love to be inside with our families. I’m sure to adjust to full-time inside living quickly!

I have somewhat of a serious personality, am quite confident and in true GSD fashion, I will alarm bark when someone comes to the house.

I don’t react to other dogs around me but am no pushover.  I may feel the need to address a rude dog who gets in my way but I definitely don’t go looking for trouble. I currently have a dog sister-Nala who is also listed on this site. We get along great and enjoy each other’s company.

Something else you should know about me is that I currently live with a cat and we are totally fine with each other. I do like to chase things that aren’t family members though.

I have a strong personality so will need an owner who will continue to lead me and will enjoy keeping up with my sharp GSD mind. Even though I have never had formal training, considering my personality, I would surely enjoy it and would make you proud. I’m also a good listener.

This is a courtesy posting. I’ll be waiting with my family in Gilroy. Hope to meet you!
