Rocco is a very sweet boy!  He likes everyone and loves attention!  He was picked up by animal control as a stray with no collar.   He is VERY underweight and is now enjoying all the food and treats he can eat.  His coat was a mess, but fortunately he likes to be brushed and is looking much more handsome after being groomed.
Rocco is friendly, outgoing, and eager to please.   He does not appear to know any commands and does not recognize treats or toys.    He is learning quickly and now LOVES treats!    He adores people and likes sitting on the couch for petting.   He rides well in the car and walks nicely on leash.   He comes when you call his name or whistle to him.
Rocco likes the other dogs in his foster home and loves to play.  He is a little too excited around cats, so has been kept away from them.   He is good with kids, but young children make him a bit nervous.   He is also nervous about unexpected, loud noises.  He may become more comfortable once he settles in.
Rocco is brand new to our program.  We will update his information as we learn more about him.  
Please contact our adoption team for more information about any of our adoptable dogs or fill out an application now.

About Almost Home Dog Rescue of Ohio, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

Almost Home Dog Rescue of Ohio is made up of a small (but growing) group of enthusiastic volunteers who want to make a difference in the lives of homeless dogs. Our background is with purebred collies and collie mixes but on occasion, we have other "family friendly" breeds. If you are searching for a collie, we'd like to help you find a wonderful companion that fits your family's lifestyle. All of our dogs are fully vaccinated and are spayed/neutered prior to adoption. They have also been tested and are negative for heartworm and are on heartworm preventative.

Our Adoption Process...

If you are interested in adopting one of our dogs please go directly to for an application. Once the application is submitted, our adoption team can discuss the information on the application with you to determine if one of our dogs would be a good fit for your home. Lastly, a home visit will be done either by one of our volunteers or another reputable rescue volunteer in your area. We do adopt out of state, but it is up to the adopter to come meet and take the dog home. Sound like a lot to go through for a dog? It really isn't as complicated as it seems and it's the best way to ensure a good match. Please contact with any additional questions you may have after reviewing the information on our website.
