Sweet Rocco had been living at a local land fill for over a month! He was terrified and would run away when people tried to help him - no one could catch him. We borrowed a live trap, and within two days the little guy was caught. Rocco is now safe here with us, and he is doing well. He has met lots of people, dogs and cats and is gaining confidence, but he still needs slow introductions to new dogs. Rocco is a petite little guy (around 50 ponds) who is house trained and loves car rides. He listens well, loves to play with squeaky toys, and has completed his basic obedience training class. Rocco has really bonded with us, and it appears as though he has some separation anxiety - his family is the most precious thing in his life - more important than food, water or comfort. Rocco does not want to be left alone - he has climbed six foot tall fences to find us. We have worked with our professional trainer, Casey McGee of Upward Hound Dog Training, on his anxiety issues and he has responded well. Rocco can improve significantly with proper training and medication, but he needs understanding, compassion, patience and trust. Rocco would do best in a quiet home with a family who will be dedicated to working with our trainer who will guide them through a program to help Rocco. Rescued Tails will cover the training costs for the adoptive home. Please contact us if you would like to learn more about this very special dog. You will never find a more loyal companion than Rocco.
