#HipNJ Welcomes Rocky

#HipNJ  is so excited to announce the newest furry addition to our family, Rocky!

Our very own Kenny Barilari welcomed him into his home this week,  thanks to Animal Rescue ‘R’ Us in Lodi.

Rocky is originally from Alabama, and is believed to be an Australian Shepherd and Pitbull mix. He is a very sleepy pup who loves to be held.

Be sure to follow us on Instagram as we document his growth.
