Rocco is a rock star who already has so many fans! That's because he loves them back so much. This cuddly, affectionate boy gets so excited when he meets any new humans and he loves nothing more than being close to them. He'll lay his head in their laps, and roll over for all the belly rubs and cuddles he can get.

This respectful and mostly calm big boy enjoys sleeping on the couch, and chewing on toys. Occasionally he'd like to do a zoomie (who doesn't), but he is recovering from two fractures in his hind legs, so he is postponing his antics until he is fully healed. He walks well on his leash, and he only pulls when he sees a pesky squirrel sticking his tongue out at him. He's a treat-motivated, housetrained boy who sleeps well in his crate, and answers to "sit" and "lay down."

Rocco has gotten along well with other dogs and should do well with kids. He is heartworm positive, but that just means he'll need a couple of months of rest during treatment, at APA!'s expense. Come meet him. He'll show you his belly and ask for rubs!
