Rocko was abandoned at a vet office when his previous owner brought him in to be euthanized for no other reason that “he was inconvenient.” At 9 years old, though it’s clear that he was not socialized with other dogs or many people, he was lucky enough to find a caring foster family. They have been able to show him love and comfort like he has never known. Unfortunately, their household is too busy for Rocko and he just does’t know how to act with so much activity. He’s a quiet, sweet and easy going “young senior”, very treat-motivated, and really likes going for walks. He’s content most of the time to be lounging on his bed or sleeping in his crate.

Rocko’s ideal home would be a quiet, single person home with no other animals. He can get along with mellow dogs, but he can be a little jealous. He also likes to bond with one person and can be a little protective. Rocko is a sweet soul who just needs a second chance in an understanding, supportive home.

Rocko is posted for Shadow’s Fund and is fostered in Graham, WA.
