Come meet Blacky and other great adoptable dogs this Sunday (Feb 25) from 12-3 pm at the Rockville Petco (1507 Rockville Pike, Rockville, MD 20852)!!!!!!
Blacky arrived from Puerto Rico with a torn ACL needing immediate surgery. His surgery was incredibly successful, and he is already starting to put weight on his injured leg. But, he now needs physical therapy to keep him moving in the right direction. Donate here to help Blacky live a pain-free life.
BLACKY NEEDS A FOREVER HOME!!!!
Name: Blacky Best Guess for Breed: Scottie Mix
Best Guess for Age: 5 yrs SEX: Male
Approximate Weight: 28 lbs
Has Lived With: Other dogs
Currently Living at: DC area foster home
Special Adoption considerations: Blacky needs to go to home with another dog to show him the ropes and build his confidence. He would also do best in a home without children as they may be a little too much excitement for him!
FOSTER UPDATE: Blacky is doing really well. His incision is healing nicely. He is counting down the days when we can ditch the cone. He is regularly walking on all four legs now. We will start more of the rehab exercises when the weather improves and we can take a short walk up the hill on my block! He will be thrilled to get out the front door!
Meet Blacky! This lovely boy is a 5 year old scotty mix, weighing in at approximately 28 lbs. Blacky came here from Puerto Rico on January 20th looking for his forever home. He was living on the streets, running and chasing cars on a very busy road, when he was rescued by his foster mom just before Hurricane Maria devastated the island. His Puerto Rican foster mom says that Blacky loves treats and rubs on his belly and head. His local foster mom agrees and adds that Blacky is a little shy when he first meets you, but he warms up quickly, and once he trusts you, he will melt into you for affection. He loves to spend time outside getting to know his all new environment and is content to nap on the couch next to you in the evenings.
Although he's past his puppy phase, Blacky is a lively and playful, so he’ll require an active family that will provide him with plenty of exercise and playtime. He will need both mental and physical stimulation on a daily basis to keep him happy and healthy.
Although Blacky gets along well with other dogs, we haven't had a chance to see him interact with cats yet. If you have them, let us know, and we'll do our best to find out! Blacky is also looking forward to attending obedience school to hone in his doggie manners and impress his new family.
Like most shelter dogs, Blacky may need a refresher on housetraining. He is likely crate trained.
