Rocco – 5 year old male Cross-Breed

Rocco is a 5 year old male Cross-Breed. He has been with us for 3 years. For those who don’t know his back story, Rocco came to us from the stray pound, we knew nothing at all about him. He moved into a foster home where he appeared to be a happy friendly loving boy with everyone he met. He showed no issues at all. Long story short, after a couple of failed adoptions, Rocco returned to us a different dog, he was reactive to everything.

People, dogs, vehicles. He spent some time in behavioural rehab where he did extremely well, he returned to us a happy boy once again, although if handled incorrectly his issues did and still will arise. He then found what we thought was the ideal forever home but once again he was failed and every instruction that was given was ignored! We decided that it was best that Rocco return to us before he resorted back to his unwanted behaviours.

Although Rocco is a much more relaxed dog these days and accepts new people when introduced properly, he is still reactive to other dogs and is very strong. He has never shown any issues with women, only men. He is extremely loving, playful, happy and outgoing. Due to his issues Rocco is likely to be with us for life unless a pet free, child free home comes along, someone with lots of land for him to roam about in without needing to be taken for walks in public areas.

It’s unlikely that will come along any time soon but for now he is happy and safe and we are in no rush to place him anywhere as it has to be 110% perfect for his needs. He is in kennels in Ormskirk.

If you do think you have the right home for him please apply via our website and we will be in touch to discuss
