Age: 1.5 

Gender: Male

Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Rocco is a sweet boy who enjoys company and does not cope well being left on his own, he will need a home where someone is home for most the day as he can be destructive when left, and a tolerant well socialized canine companion to share his home with. Rocco’s new best 4-legged friend will need to have history of living with dogs, or be used to visiting dogs coming to their home, as Rocco becomes so attached to his doggie friends that he is glued to their hip, and may not pick up on social signals that the other dog needs some space. Rocco can be slightly shy of handling and will often avoid being fussed, he will need patient calm owners who respect his need for space, and are fully committed to carrying out positive training to help him become more comfortable. Rocco would like to live with Adults only due to him needing a quiet home with routine and where he can be the center of attention. Rocco loves scent work and would like owners who can play scent games with him, scent work will also give Rocco mental stimulation and help boost his confidence. Please come along to the shelter and speak to Karen if you would like more information on Rocco.
