Since 2012, Rocky, has bounced around from the streets to shelters. A couple went to the shelter to make a donation for the animals in need, but never expected love at first site… but they did!
Even though they went to make a donation they left with a 17-year-old dog, that totally changed their lives.
“We were there to donate all kinds of stuff that I rounded up with my military community and I saw Rocky walk in and I couldn’t stop thinking about that adorable old face,” Beth, Rocky’s new mom, told Bored Panda. “Next thing I know I’m walking out with Rocky!”
“Rocky was in bad shape the first few days but after a bath and finding some good joint and health medicine to put him on we found his personality was sparky and fun. He sings and dances with us and loves to follow wherever we go. Rocky knows his age but he still pushes his limits to [do] all kinds of things, his spirit is absolutely amazing!”
“Rocky may have had some bad years but I made a promise to him however long he may be here will be filled with joy and love and lots of treats. He defiantly brought a missing puzzle piece into our life and we are more than happy to be his parents.”
Beth wrote a letter to her beloved, Rocky. Every line was filled with so much love. They’re so lucky to have found one other!
“I took you on knowing we were going to have to take extra care of you. Knowing that one day you weren’t going to make it outside and I would have to clean it up. One day I was going to have to carry you up the stairs when you no longer have the strength to do it.
I knew you were going to eventually lose your hearing and eyesight and we were going to have to spend extra money to make the house safer for you.
One day I am going to have to say goodbye to you. But until then you are the best gift I have ever gotten! I’m really sad I couldn’t give you the best 17 years you deserved but I promise you’ll have a great life from now to the day I have to say goodbye!”
