Hello everybody! My name is Rocket and in case you didn't notice,  I have the bluest eyes in Texas!  I've heard people say I'm pretty darn handsome! 

I'm 9 years old weighing in at 13 pounds.  I used to be in a lovely home and at no fault of my own, DDRTX was asked to help find me a new home. So here I am! 
When I first got to my foster mom's house I was pretty shy but once I got used to her, I came out of my shell.  Now she thinks I'm so funny and entertaining. 
So a few things about me.  I love to run and play in the yard and I love to go for walks.  So I would really like to have a home with a yard and someone who has the time to spend with me. But I'm not always playing.  When my foster mom is busy,  that's when i get my naps in!  I get along really good with my foster brother but I really can't be in a home with cats.  I sleep through the night on my bed next to my foster mom or I can sleep in the big bed. Either is OK by me, but just so you know.... I've been told I'm a great snuggler! 
If I sound like someone you would like to be a part of your family,  submit your application today!  I can't wait to meet you. 
P.S. I love squeaky toys!
