Rocco hasn’t had the best luck in life. Once a forgotten guard dog kept in confinement and less than ideal circumstances, he is learning how to be a real dog with the help of the staff, volunteers and fellow pooches at TEARS Animal Rescue. It takes him a little while to get comfortable around new people, but once he does, he will show his goofy, affectionate side and he lights up when he sees people he knows; his stubby little tail can’t wag fast enough! Rocco has a few OCD and food guarding tendencies, but with the right management and positive reinforcement, he’s slowly starting to overcome his old habits. He’s the perfect travel buddy – ever keen for a road trip to relax in the car and sit next to you for the journey! Rocco just needs someone to love him – someone with the time and patience to help him put his best paw forward and overcome his past experiences. He would love for you to be his favourite person – could you be the one to teach this handsome boy what second chances are all about?
