Meet Rocky (& Roxanne)
Rocky and his sister Roxanne came to us from unfortunate circumstances. Rocky is a sweet, vocal, affectionate dog. He loves to give love and receive love. He would choose cuddles over walks any day !
He is quite talkative and will let you know when he wants something! He plays well with Roxanne but when it comes to other dogs, he prefers them from a distance.
Rocky came from a home with many cats, so we believe he would do well in a home with a cat. Rocky will need to be adopted with his sister and best friend, Roxanne! If you would like to welcome this goofy lovable boy and his sweet sister into family, please submit an application online.
***In order to protect the health of our staff, volunteers and members of the public during the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve made changes to our adoption process.
1. View profile: adopt.spca.bc.ca
2. Submit an application: spca.bc.ca/adoption/application-forms/
3. Staff will contact the first suitable applicant to arrange a meet & greet!
❤️ Thank you for continuing to help animals find loving new homes! This enables us to keep caring for new animals at risk, even with limited staffing.
