My name is Rocco. I am a love sponge. I am around 3 years old I was in a shelter in Anderson SC until a crazy human from the Carolina Boxer Rescue network got me out of there. I'd been on my own for a while and became heart worm and other parasite positive. Even though I was sick I felt just fine. My new family and I went straight to the vet to start getting all the treatments and precautions I need. My new family was going on vacation so I had to stay with the family trainer to test me while they were away. I love other dogs big or small, and kids too. I don't like the crate very much but I will do it if I have too. I love to run and play. I'm really good and my mom left me at the house alone and I was a good boy. I'm learning how to be a gentleman. So, if you'd like a sweet, loving, handsome and loyal pooch I'm your guy..
11/13 Update Rocco is doing well, super sweet and very loving! He needs to be always with a leash because he will run away.. we are teaching him but from been a stray we do not want to loose him. He is learning commands very fast! He is always by your side, he wants to be love often.. I hope he can find a very special family to love him forever..
