Rocket Man is done burning out his fuse out here alone and is ready for a forever home! Meet Rocket a one-year-old Labrador Retriever mix who is inquisitive and cool headed but also has a playful, energetic streak. This sweetheart came to the Kentucky Humane Society when his family could no longer care for him. Now he's ready for a new family to love! Rocket loves to play with other dogs and has shown that he isn't shy about sharing toys and then laying in the sun with his dog besties after a good long play session. Rocket has found that chest rubs and neck scratches are in abundance when being pet and loves these spots specifically, give him a good scratch here and there and watch that leg start to kick! Rocket is a high energy dog that loves to run and go on hikes, but also likes to walk with his owner to explore new locations outdoors.

Rocket is at his best and happiest when he has another dog with similar energy levels around, so he would love a new dog sibling in addition to his humans. He looks to his dog friends for rough wrestling as well as comfort, relaxing in the grass, rolling around together and showing off new toys to his playmates in the hopes they will join in on the fun so another dog in the home is a must. He also needs a home setting that lets him stretch his legs and get a good run in so homes with lots of space or a yard would be best. Rocket would like to meet his new playmate to make sure it's the best match for years of play to come. He would thrive with a family that can provide lots of exercise for this young man, and he hopes his new playmates will come along for any adventure he sets off on. Because Rockets playstyle can be rough, he will be best suited in a home with children who are 10 years and older.

Rocket is not all about play though. He takes his manners training very seriously and will come and sit, or lay down beside you in a settled position to ask "Can it be Rocket time now?" He likes to sit at doorways which is how he asks "Can we see what adventures are out there today, please?" Is Rocket Man a good fit for you? Yes? Then we have blast off! Rocket is neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on all vaccinations.

Owner Surrender:
I came to the Kentucky Humane Society because my owner could no longer care for me. I miss being in a home and have a lot of love to give.

Your sponsorship of a special animal will help us save more lives! In addition, you can choose to Sponsor a Animal in honor of a loved one (two-legged or four-legged).

For sponsorships of $250 or more, you will receive a photo and information about your special animal. Learn more about the Sponsor a Animal program.
