***Long Term Resident! Adoption Fee WAIVED!!!***

Hi! My name is Rocco! I am a 5-6 year old neutered male Black Lab that sadly was being listed on craigslist just prior to Christmas with threats that my owner would shoot me if no one took me in. I'm certainly not perfect but I do love my people and want to make them happy!

Rocco is good with men and women and friendly with people but we have not had him around children. He is good with cats but might be the best as the only dog. He can be a guarder with his food and toys so we could see this being a problem with other dogs. He is fostered with other dogs BUT he is separated from them. He can sniff them through their crates and doesn't react but gets pretty intense when he sees other dogs out on leash. Rocco struggled with crate training at first but now with a larger crate he goes right in for his meals. We always feed him in the crate when we lock him in. Rocco is overweight though so portion control is important. He also loves walks, playing with toys and cuddling with his foster mom and dad.

Rocco's adoption fee is $225 which includes his neuter, shots, microchip and a private training session with the Director. To apply for Rocco please go to and fill out our Adoption Application and send to
