______________

Rocco is a 7-year-old, athletic, delightful little wisp of a dog looking for his forever pack. Weighing only 20 pounds, he seems to be part whippet or Italian greyhound. Rocco is 100% cat friendly and is skilled in avoiding drama with other dogs.

At six-years-old, Rocco has a huge vocabulary, so training is not a concern. There are two main things he requires to keep him at his best:

(1) A stable pack. Rocco will make an excellent second or even third dog. Like whippet and greyhound types, he is most comfortable being in an environment where pack rules are calm and clear so that he does not become anxious.

(2) Rocco requires one or two treadmill workouts (around 10 minutes) per day so that he will not become anxious. Without his treadmill time, he tends to pace and have difficulty settling.

This adorable, soulful-eyed boy is currently living in a foster home with an elderly dog and a young, active dog. (Both dogs are twice his size.) Rocco is not interested in playing, but loves his pack walks, rides in the car, and the calm companionship of other dogs. He enjoys being with people and is happy to hold down a dog bed as long as his exercise needs are being met.

Rocco is healthy, fully vaccinated, neutered, microchipped and heartworm negative. He comes with a special crate since he has a history of being a crate Houdini and even injuring himself. He is very comfortable being in this crate.
If you think you have the right home for this unique little guy that still has plenty of good mileage to go, please apply at www.redbarnrescue.com today!
