Rocko is a 9 week old tiny, tiny little fellow who just came in yesterday. He is being posted at 8am Saturday morning, I expect he will be adopted before the day is through.
I have watched these puppies at the shelter since they were born there. Yes born in a high kill shelter. I don't recall how many there were to start with but Rocko is the only survivor. I know he looks like a chihuahua, dachshund but his mother was a solid black terrier of 10lbs, she was adopted yesterday from the shelter leaving Rocko on his own so we picked him up. He has an outstanding personality, VERY loving little puppy in solid chocolate. He understands love because he was raised by the shelter in SC that we give our highest accolades as "Best Staff." He has been held, fed and only known love from humans, never abused or treated badly by anyone. So he trusts humans completely and it shows, he never meets a stranger and absolutely LOVES other dogs. He plays constantly, then climbs on your chest for his nap.
The first question I am going to get is how big is he going to be? Well, my guess is never more than 10lbs but if he follows his doxie daddy then possibly 15lbs. This is a tiny puppy and will be a tiny grown up!
