Rocco IV, 18-152's Bio

Rocco is just a big hunk of love. Sadly, Rocco’s family left him at boarding when they decided they could no longer care for him. Rocco is a dream of a dog. He is laid back and loyal. Rocco is smart and eager to please. His laid back temperament would make him a great therapy dog. Rocco gets along with other dogs and doesn’t mind cats. Rocco is true to his mastiff blood- a gentle giant through and through. Rocco is looking for his forever home and would fit into anyone’s lifestyle.  

Rocco  is neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. His adoption fee is $250.

Rocco is in the Paws in Prison program where he receives obedience training. He is expected to graduate from Paws in Prison on 2/8/19.  The dogs in this program are trained under the AKC Canine Good Citizen standards and are specifically selected to be family and companion dogs. They spend 24 hours a day with their trainers. For that reason, they will do best in homes where they are primarily inside dogs and spend lots of time with their families. The adoptive family will receive Rocco’s training journal. This journal documents his arrival from the shelter, his daily training progress, and his interactions with his trainers. If you are interested in meeting Rocco or learning more about the adoption process, please visit our website and submit our online adoption application here: http://www.careforanimals.org/adoption-app.cfm
