KENILWORTH, NJ – Meet Rocky, Kenilworth's TAPinto Pet of the Week!

We rescued Rocky January 25, 2016, when he was eleven months old. He was found on the side of the road in South Carolina with his two brothers. The three of them were named Curly (now Rocky), Larry and Moe. February 25, he will be five years old. Rocky is a 105 lb Mastiff, Labrador, Basset hound mix. But don’t let his size fool you. He’s a big mush. We call him our gentle giant or our gentle beast. He loves spending time in town hall and visits everyone there often. He has his own little corner in the mayor’s office as well as hidden treats. Rocky loves to cuddle, be outside, Anthony’s slippers (we are on pair #9), and of course he loves to eat. Especially mommy’s homemade food. He likes to lay right behind me while I’m cooking for the hopes I’ll drop something or sneak him a taste. Oh, and he such a daddy’s boy.
