Pet of the Week: Rocket


BROWNSVILLE, Texas – The Rocket is ready for liftoff! No, we’re not talking about SpaceX. On this week’s Pet of the Week we’ve been given the all clear, the launchpad is ready, it’s time to blast off with this friendly and exciting pup… meet Rocket!

Rocket is a big dog weighing easily over 20 pounds. He’s a husky mix and a bit of a wildcard. At times he’ll be very interested in playing, then there’s times when he’d rather run off and explore on his own.

Rocket is a good companion and he’s looking for a forever home. If you would like to adopt Rocket or a pet just like him, visit the Brownsville Animal Regulation and Care Center at 416 FM 511 or call 544-7351.
