Rocco has made good friends with one of our volunteers, this is how she describes Rocco … ” Rocco was very stand offish at first and didn’t want any affection, but now he craves interaction in the play area and he even rolled over for belly rubs the other day. He has some of the typical Shar Pei traits – he can be stubborn for example. He is dog friendly on walks and very strong on the lead. Rocco is more comfortable with women than men, but he does have some male buddies at kennels”.

Rocco is dog friendly but cannot live with cats.

Rocco will need an owner who will commit to regular visits to the kennels to build up a relationship because he’s not welcoming to new people – it will be best to meet Rocco out on a walk and then go together into the play area to build a bond with the boy. With clear boundaries and firm, calm handling, with believe Rocco has got potential to be a fabulous boy.
