Bumpy Road for Rocky
? It's easy to understand why Rocky was
so scared of people, considering that this 1-year-old
German Shepherd mix was beaten with an electrical
cord in his home in Greenville, Ky. Fortunately,
Rocky was brought to an animal shelter in Kentucky
and transferred to the Wisconsin Humane Society
for a second chance at life.
A thorough medical
examination determined Rocky miraculously didn't
sustain any medical problems as a result of the
beating. However, WHS staff noted how afraid Rocky
was when he walked into the doors of WHS. Little
did Rocky know WHS would save his life.
at WHS, Rocky's personality gradually began to turn
around. Once a shaken dog leading a timid life,
Rocky now has a smile on his face and the comfort
of knowing WHS is taking good care of him and will
find him a good home. Rocky is becoming more comfortable
and trusting with people each and every day.
occur with every animal at the Wisconsin Humane
Society and Rocky is no exception. Rocky will soon
become available for adoption and has one simple
request: that his family treats him with the utmost
respect and kindness. Rocky promises to return the
kindness with plenty of hugs and kisses.
