ROCKY a.k.a The Rockster, the three-legged wonder dog, has many important and interesting people as friends and one of them is Miss World Malaysia 2009 Thanuja Ananthan.
Thanuja met Rocky when she learnt of him from the person who had rescued him from Batu Caves almost a year ago.
“I visited Rocky several times at the veterinary clinic where he was undergoing treatment and became one of his admirers,’’ said Thanuja.
Rocky suffered severe nerve damage to his right front limb due to an accident and had to undergo amputation of that limb.
He has also been vaccinated and neutered.
Rocky has been in the custody and care of canine welfare project Malaysian Dogs Deserve Better (MDDB) since his discharge several months ago.
Thanuja, who added that Rocky will always have a place in her heart, is also hoping that he’ll find a good home soon.
“He deserves a family that will love and care for him and I hope he’ll get adopted soon,’’ said Thanuja.
Rocky, who is slightly over a year-old, will be one of the dogs at the MDDB adoption drive at Jaya One, Petaling Jaya this Sunday.
The adoption drive from 11.30am to 7.30pm will be held at Block NB1, facing Station 1 and Old Town White Coffee.
Meanwhile, MDDB adoption coordinator Christine Lai Rocky appears to be oblivious of his dissability.
“He runs like the wind and can be very full of himself.
“If he were a human being, he would most probably be a pompus, self-opinionated and self-admiring individual,’’ said Lai with laugh.
She added those wanting to donate things to the canine welfare project can bring the things to the adoption drive.
“We need dry and canned dog, puppy, cat and kitten food, dog and cat shampoo, bleech, towels, old newspapers and washing soap,’’ said Lai.
