On January 16, 2022, Rocco was surrendered at Abandoned Animal Rescue, as a 4 month old Mountain Cur/ Pit mix puppy. His people said he was too active, growing too big and they couldn’t handle him. Fast forward to January 2024, 731 days later, he is almost 2 1/2 years old; well mannered, knows commands, keeps his kennel clean, great on leash, happy, and healthy.

He most likely will be an only dog. There was a time when he enjoyed play groups with other dogs but shelter life has made him a little weary. Perhaps it’s because after a while, every friend he made got adopted and he figured why bother?

Rocco spent time with a trainer, away from the shelter life for 3 months, allowing him to decompress. He started to protect his area, as it is the only real home he has known. He loves his time with the only constants in his life, the volunteers. We know in a home, with security and love, Rocco will flourish.

His trainer has offered to work with the adopters to ensure Rocco will live his best life. If you or someone you know is interested in an amazing dog, please come out and meet him or spread the word about him. All Rocco needs is a second chance.
