Meet Felix- the happiest little ray of sunshine! Felix came to Rocket Dog in terrible shape- horribly matted, nails so long they were curling back into his skin, and covered with cuts and bruises. Not much is known about his past, but despite his condition, Felix is the sweetest, most loving pup.
Felix has so many great qualities! He is very friendly with all people and loves to cuddle with his people. He is great with other dogs, big and small, and always eager to make new friends. He is also great with cats! Felix has excellent manners, knows a few basic commands, and seems to be house-trained (though no guarantees in new places!). He is not a big barker and is always happy to nap quietly next to you while you work from home or relax on the couch.
Felix loves his walks and walks amazingly well on leash. It’s hard to capture just how long and low he is in pictures, but he is surprisingly fit for a dog with very short little legs. He needs at least 1-2 hours of exercise a day and has no problem walking for an hour straight. After his walks, he is very mellow at home and he loves his naps.
Due to the rough shape, he came to us in, Felix can be sensitive to being touched in certain areas so he is looking for a home without children, though well-mannered, dog-savvy ones 12 years and older could be fine. Felix is non-shedding and will require regular grooming. (We are not saying he is hypo-allergenic, so please do not apply if you have concerns.)
