NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) -

Well, lots of energy is to be expected from a 10-month-old Labrador retriever-mix waiting to find his forever family at the Nacogdoches Animal Shelter.
Meet Rocky. He just loves the opportunity to run around. 

The Lab is learning to chase toys, but hasn't quite mastered bringing them back. 

One quick lesson this morning had Rocky going up canine obstacles. 

The shelter says all it's going to take to calm this Lab down is a little time and attention from the future owner of tonight’s Best Furry Friend.

Some TLC from the right future owner of tonight's Best Furry Friend can quickly channel Rocky's energy.

"He's crate trained. He's good with other dogs. He's very hyper. Friendly as well. And just all around a good dog,” said Torion Johnson, an animal control. “He's a Lab mix. Not sure what the other mix is, but we can tell he's a Lab because of his high energy. Letting him run around. Letting him play. Giving him things to actually go after and chase like a ball or a Frisbee and at times even taking him out for walks and letting him meet other dogs and letting them play."

If you are interested in adopting Rocky, just contact the Nacogdoches Animal Shelter off the loop. They're open Monday to Saturday but closed on the Sundays.

Remember, every week we introduce you to an adoptable animal in need of a loving family right here on KTRE.
