Rocko is a 2 year old and 10 lb sweet and loyal dog. He gets along great with other dogs. He loves long walks and is very curious and full of energy. You will fall in love the moment you meet him.
From his foster mom:
Rocko needs a lot of attention, looks like nobody ever had played with him before. He doesn't know how to fetch. I would love for him a loving family that goes out with him to dog parks and take him on vacation too, like a family member. He was very anxious at the beginning, now that I earned his trust, I don't want him to get disappointed again.
I fostered Rocko to notice that he was acting like a dog that had been mistreated by their prior owners before he was rescued. He seemed very scared and traumatized, getting stressed by every little noise and sudden movements of human beings around him, like if he had been physically punished before in the past. I also noticed that he was very anxious and nervous of small places, like a puppy that has been locked for long periods of time during his first two years of life.
Therefore, his new owner should be very loving and sensitive with a dog that has recently learned to trust people because it took a lot of work, patience, love, and time.
Evidently, this is a dog that has lots of love to give in return, he gets attached easily and would be all over you, waiting for you at all times and making you happy, as long as you give him the love, space, time, and respect that every dog deserves.
