A volunteer writes: I first met Rocco as he was chilling and getting some love from staff, and I knew I needed to meet his handsome, sweet dog. Meet him I did, and he’s a gem! He’s a cuddle dog, a gentle kisser, a tail #wagger, and a tug player. Gentle is the key word with him, and I fell in love. Surrendered by his family as they can’t afford vet care, we’re told Rocco lived with 2 adults and children ages 5,9, and 12 with whom he was friendly and playful.
Rocco doesn’t guard his toys or food, is “very housebroken” (check), loves toys (check), slept on the foot of the bed on a blanket, and chases cats. I loved cuddling with him as he wagged his tail, he puts his head in my lap for petting, his eyes sparkle as his tail #wags. I had several toys in the yard with us, and he picked his favorite which he brought to me to play tug.
Rocco has a mass on the side of his face which will need to be checked by a vet. It doesn’t seem to bother him, and certainly doesn’t detract from his handsome good looks.
Our vets have lanced it, but it does need further checking. He’s such a good #dog, I’m hoping he finds the home he deserves and the care he requires. A proven family dog, he needs a kitty-free home and lots of love.
Another volunteer writes: Always friendly, always happy to meet new people, always ready to enjoy a hug and a kiss, he’s delighted to be out for a walk and the chance to use ‘the facilities’. We stopped at my favorite stoop for a bit of snuggle time, and #Rocco was happy giving gentle kisses, leaning his head into my chest for better closeness and ignoring two men arguing heatedly about the #election. friendly #energy and loving #spirit . 🔅INFO/PHOTOS/VIDEOS & STATUS: http://nycdogs.urgentpodr.org/rocco-11518/ 🔅Can be reserved direct online, till noon, by someone genuinely wanting to adopt , who can personally get to the shelter by 6 p.m. Wednesday to collect him......( https://newhope.shelterbuddy.com/ ) ............
