ROCKYDOG or formally known as Rockford “Rocky” Altman was rescued back in 2010 from a private shelter. Rocky was brought in after he and another dog were horribly left behind (tied up on a leach in a backyard after the people moved, they were just left there!) Rocky who although is the perfect dog/pet beautiful inside and out was also heart worm positive, so he became the De Facto mascot of the shelter, because no one wanted to take a chance on his health. After being there for six months, I was lucky enough to go and meet him! I really wasn’t ready to adopt a dog at that point, but I could not get him out of my mind and found myself applying to adopt him a couple of days later. Six months of heart worm treatment and he started consistently testing negative for the deadly disease.
Fast forward eight years and Rocky is still going strong… I have had a fair amount of pets in my life, Loved them all… But Rocky has carved a place in my heart that few (including human’s) have! My constant companion, best friend and son… He is my miracle! Sometimes I wonder, Who rescued who? And now the Muse of my (our) new clothing line… ROCKYDOG!
