Rocket Dog rescued on 1st November 2010
Rocket Dog, a juvenile seal, was rescued from Mumbles Gower in Wales and taken to RSPCA´s West Hatch Wildlife Centre on 1st November 2010 for treatment.

In late December 2010 Rocket Dog was transferred to the National Seal Sanctuary for its next stage of rehabilitation and to learn to compete for fish with other seals. Rocket Dog is by far the noisiest pup we have at the moment!     His flipper tag number is 80024 (orange).
