Rocky, a 5 year old, black & tan, neutered male GSD,
would be perfect if it wasn't for the CCL rupture of the left knee. (cranial cruciate ligament, (ACL of the knee))
He is basic obedience trained and appears to be perfectly friendly. I've spent some time with him. He was calm, very people friendly and affiliative. Got around adequately on his own.
Originally dumped by his very busy owners in the Staten Island shelter of NYC animal control, NOW LOCATED in the Brooklyn shelter of NYC animal control.
Because of his medical condition, he can only be pulled from the shelter by a rescue.
If you are an individual who would like to foster or give rocky a home, you have to contact one of the NYCACC New Hope Partners. The link to their list is on the following facebook page.

For more information on adopting please read the following:
DO NOT call the shelter and say you are adopting unless you truly intend on physically going to the shelter to adopt the dog. It ties up phones lines and is a waste of the staff's time to explain the adoption procedure over the phone for someone who is purposely not going to show up. They need every free second of their time to answer calls, assist actual adopters, process intakes, and care for the animals. More importantly, they will note the dog’s file that an adopter is en route which will prevent an actual adopter from saving the dog. This is considered a "fake adoption" hold and that is how dogs fall through the cracks and end up being killed.
For more information on a particular dog, email firstname.lastname@example.org
but ONLY if serious about adopting, and ONLY if you are able to GO TO the shelter in-person. Please do not email for status updates... the only thing you will accomplish is spamming their in boxes and causing REAL adopter emails to go un-noticed. Contact the NYC ACC at (212) 788-4000 for further automated instructions.
