Hey world, are you ready for the awesomeness that is me? Well ready or not, here I come! Rocco’s the name and “must love Rocco” is the game. I am a big boy with an even bigger heart. My life has taken way too many strange turns. I lost my leg when I was very young, but that doesnt bother me, there is much more to me that my tripod status. I was adopted from Dogtown a few years ago but that didnt work out either so well here I am, waiting for my final, forever happy after to start.

Now before you you jump in your car and rush to Dogtown for some Rocco-cuddles, I need to tell you that as much as I love humans, I am not too fond of other dogs, or cats. So my perfect home would be one where I can be the centre of attention and only child.

I really enjoy going on walks but I can’t really go too far, my joints do get sore from carrying around this big personality I was telling you about 🙂  I am super smart and I love brain-games. Mental stimulation is a big part of my daily routine.

My skin is a bit sensitive when it comes to the sun but you will see my pretty tattoos on my eyes which have made a huge difference. I get a dash of sunblock everyday, especially in winter because then I love to lounge belly up in the sun.

Please come meet me? I love humans big and small, short and tall. When you visit, I will promptly plant myself on your lap so that you can tell me how handsome I am and then give me a chewie for being so awesome. A boy can dream can’t he?
