Featured Pet

Rocko is a German shepherd / Weimaraner mix who is very smart. He quickly learned basic obedience commands and really enjoys practicing them with people. Sadly, he was left behind when his previous owners moved so BYC stepped in and rescued him. He is sometimes afraid of men when he first meets them but when he realizes that the man is not going to hurt him, he is anixous to become friends. On the other hand, he has never met a woman he didn't like! Rocko enjoys playing with other dogs and would be a fantastic running partner and agility prospect. He can jump fences and climb chain link so a home with a yard that has a high wooden fence or a long run line would be best for him. Rocko is housebroken and well behaved indoors so he does not need to be crated, which is good because he doesn't like crates. Rocko is neutered, vaccinated, and heartworm negative. His adoption fee is $125 and he can be seen at our adoption center in McKean during adoption hours.
