Background Information

Why rehoming: Rocky was adopted by my daughter's family with 4 children The family loved him but moved, and I, the grandma, became Rocky's guardian. We are very close. I now have to travel at regular intervals out of town for 3 months each time and Rocky cannot come with me. My goal is to find a forever home for Rocky who will give him the love he deserves. He's a really good and caring boy.
