The champ is here! ROCKY is our adoptable Pet of the Week from It Takes a Village. His cuteness will knock you out!

ROCKY is an eight-month-old male terrier mix, and he currently weighs 20 lbs. His vaccinations up to date, and he has been neutered. Our friends at It Takes a Village tell us that ROCKY loves toys, he is very energetic and has a super happy personality. And let's talk about that coloring, or at least the pattern in his coloring. I don't know about you, but the first thing I thought of when I saw the white part near his tail was the Air Jordan logo. Am I crazy? What do you see?

If you think you might be interested in adopting ROCKY, go ahead and fill out an online adoption application - once you're approved, you can set up a meet and greet with this handsome fella.

And as always, if our pet of the week isn’t the right fit for your home, please visit It Takes a Village to see the other rescues that need to get fostered and adopted. Keep in mind that It Takes a Village is still in need of fosters for mommas and litters. It's puppy season at ITV.

It Takes a Village is still offering the RENT A DOG Program. A quick fill form and copy of your photo ID will allow you time out with one of ITV's vetted shelter dogs. These day dates are great for the rescues - it gets them some exercise and new information to help us get them adopted. It’s been a big hit- so don’t miss out!

All of the animals at ITV are examined by a veterinarian, given age-appropriate vaccinations, microchipped, spayed or neutered, and FIV/FeLV-tested.

ITV is open during regular hours. However, they have received so much support and interest over shut down, that they are still working diligently to review all correspondences. They appreciate everyone’s patience as they find the best matches for their rescues.

LOOK: Here Are 30 Foods That Are Poisonous to Dogs

To prepare yourself for a potential incident, always keep your vet's phone number handy, along with an after-hours clinic you can call in an emergency. The ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center also has a hotline you can call at (888) 426-4435 for advice.

Even with all of these resources, however, the best cure for food poisoning is preventing it in the first place. To give you an idea of what human foods can be dangerous, Stacker has put together a slideshow of 30 common foods to avoid. Take a look to see if there are any that surprise you.
