Meet Rocco! Rocco is a 4 year old Brindle Boy that is full of love and wiggles.  Rocco is coming into the program because his current home does not have the time to spend or work with him.  Over the past few months, Rocco has developed aggression towards some dogs.  Rocco got underneath the fence in the back yard and injured a small breed dog.   His owners are now very nervous walking him in the neighborhood and are not able to work with him or help him with training.  When our volunteer met Rocco with her Boxer, he not display aggression, he displayed fearfulness and uncertainty.  We believe that in the right home, a home that has the time to spend with Rocco, on positive reinforcement methods out in the “real world”, he will come around quickly. 

Rocco is not crated and we are told he is not destructive at all.  We are told he is a LOVE BUG and loves all people.  Rocco is not being exercised the way he should, so he would love a home that is willing to walk him a few time a day and to give him the mental exercise a Boxer needs.  He knows some basic commands, but will need to be worked on with “jumping”.   He will need a confident owner, one that is willing to attend a training class with Rocco and one that is willing to help him work through some of his concerns out in the real world and to help build his confidence.   Rocco has also become territorial at his current home, so his new home will need to be sure that they are redirecting him in a positive manner, when people enter the house hold.  Because of Rocco’s jumpiness, we will not be placing him in a home with small children. We will also not be placing him in a home with other dogs or cats.
