Rocky Kanaka is an internet personality who has done wonders for shelter dogs. His YouTube channel is full of videos of him doing something amazing for dogs. The following story is about the time he did something nice for a shelter dog named Bodhi.
When Rocky first saw Bodhi at a shelter, the dog had no name. Bodhi is a very energetic dog who likes to bark a lot and lunge on the cage door. Rocky was worried that people might misunderstand the dog, and that will likely make his stay at the shelter longer.
Rocky believes that Bodhi’s behavior inside the cage doesn’t reflect who he truly is. Bodhi is just behaving based on his current environment. The dog is excited to get out and interact with people.
Rocky took Bodhi out on a walk. It was an opportunity for the dog to show his true self outside of a cage. Bodhi was very easy to walk. Rocky occasionally stops to let Bodhi sniff trees or grass.
Rocky also attached a GPS device on Bodhi just in case he tries to run away. While walking, he also shared a few facts about the dog. Bodhi is only ten months old and has experienced neglect. He is also a Labrador mix, and Rocky is curious about what breed he is mixed with.
After a stroll at the beach, Rocky brought Bodhi back to his home for a special surprise. He gave him a delicious meal. Rocky is also a baker who makes treats for dogs. Bodhi had a taste of Rocky’s special baked pies and cookies.
Rocky placed Bodhi on a table so he can eat in peace there. However, the dog’s stray behavior showed, so he took the food off the table and ate on the ground. Rocky didn’t mind because he understood the dog’s tendencies.
