Hi, I'm Rocco a handsome Chow mix rescued from a shelter. I was an owner surrender due to my owner moving and I couldn't go too. I was described by the shelter as being very sweet, very friendly and a favorite of volunteers. I'm grateful to C.A.R.L. for rescuing me before it was too late.

I've been lucky enough to be in a foster home since April 2020 where everyone is basically home all day. They've created an Instagram page just for me. rocco_rockz. They say I'm rather stiff in my back legs and I can't get in the car by myself or get up a full flight of stairs. I get to go on two walks a day. I need a home with no younger children. My foster family has a 16 and 17 year old who I do great with.

I love being with my people and don't enjoy being left alone. If one person leaves, I wait by the door and cry until they come back.

I'm dog reactive and would do best as the only dog in your home. I'm easier to control on walks with a harness. I need a home with no cats. I'm also a creature of habit so will do best with a set routine.

I hope you'll open your heart and home to wonderful me.

*Thank you to Sharon for sponsoring this wonderful dog and giving him the chance for a better life..
