Meet "Rocketdog"

June 14, 2017, Dog of the Day, Taurus Metric


Meet Rocketdog! He's a handsome black and white Border Collie mix (we think there's some Greyhound in there)! This happy pup may be deaf, but that doesn't stop him from having the time of his life playing at Taurus Metric every week!


True to his name, Rocketdog is as fast as a rocket - he's a blur in the yards when you throw a ball! He is always ready to play fetch, no matter what time of day or what the weather is like. 

                        If he could, he would play fetch all day and night! He loves to chew on the ball for a bit after he catches it, and then he will drop it and stare at it until you pick it up to throw again. If you don't pick the ball up, he will take it and drop it in front of you to remind you that you have one job to do while he's in the yards! He's the perfect dog to get slow-motion videos of because he is so great at catching balls mid-air.

Being deaf doesn't stop Rocketdog from learning tricks and commands. He knows several hand signals, including sit, down, wait, and leave it! He's such a smart and playful dog, and the pack at Taurus Metric love spending time with him!
