Rocco was found as a stray and when his owners were found they didn’t want him anymore. He lived for a couple of weeks wandering around a golf course until some good samaritans brought him into a vet clinic. The vet techs fell madly in love with him and did all they could to get him into rescue.

Rocco is a sweetheart, as well as being spectacularly handsome. He loves to walk and/or run and does exceptionally well on leash. Rocco would do best with a female friend or even as an only dog. He’d also be best in a home with teenaged or no children. He’s a big boy and he likes to play, his play may be too rough for smaller kids. He is absolutely smart as a whip and is incredibly food motivated. He’d love to take a class with his new parent! He also loves to cuddle, he’d be great to curl up on the couch with and take in a movie. A boy like this should have a home and family of his own! He’s such a good boy and has a ton of love to give.
