Sam, Jo, Sophie and Rocky

~ Sam, Jo, Sophie and Rocky ~

About a year ago, Sam, Jo and Sophie adopted Mini Dachshund pup, Rocket. Since then, he has brought his family endless joy, love and laughter and they have formed such a beautiful bond. 

One day in 2021, Jo was told of a small Dachshund puppy who, when old enough, would need a home. She decided almost instantly that she would adopt the pup, named Rocket or Rocky, and wanted it to be a surprise for her husband, Sam, and daughter, Sophie. However, it was too exciting for Jo to keep it a secret and told her family before Rocky was welcomed into their family. 

When Sam, Jo and Sophie adopted Rocky, they were going through a lot. Jo had just lost her mother and Sam was struggling as an essential worker during the Covid-19 pandemic. Whenever Sam returned home, seeing an excitable puppy jumping up with a wagging tail always brightened his day. After Jo lost her mother, Rocky didn’t leave her side. He followed her everywhere and helped comfort her during this time. 

Not only has Rocky impacted Sam, Jo and Sophie, but also everyone he meets. Whenever they go out for a walk, everyone smiles with they see Rocky’s cute little face and often stop to say hello. It means so much to Sam, Jo and Sophie to be able to share so much joy with so many people. 

The impact that Rocky has had on his family has been huge. He has changed Sam, Jo and Sophie’s lives for the better and they all bring so much love and joy into each and every day.
