Once you have had a wonderful dog, a life without one, is a life diminished.

Hello! I am Rocky, a 10 year old beagle boy!  I came all the way to the great state of Nebraska from Tennessee just to find my perfect forever home.  I am such an easy going guy, I get along with everyone… even those weird things my humans call CATS! I am a pretty independent guy, I kinda do my own thing, but I love to be petted and told how handsome I am.  Did you notice my beautiful RED and WHITE fur?  I was destined to be a HUSKER! Although I am an older fella, I am still very spunky!  I will follow you around the house to keep you company, and I LOVE to go for walks.  My foster human says I walk on a leash like a “show dog”… can you believe it? ME.. a SHOW DOG?? I am easily potty trained, and like a routine.  It took me less than 2 days to figure out exactly when I am supposed to go potty outside (I am so smart)! I would be a perfect companion for a family with children, or a retired couple who wants to take me on their travels.  I am pretty much perfect, don’t ya think?  Let those awesome people of BBRH know if you would like to set up a date with me!  I promise it will be love at first sight !
