Dog Story: With a name like Rocco, you may think that I am a dominate male, but that is far from the truth. Actually, the origins of the name derived from the Germanic element hrok meaning rest. If you know Brittanys, then you may think that rest never describes a Brittany, but I may be the exception to the rule. My ideal day is as follows: sleep late, go on a walk, sleep beside you on the couch while you watch the morning news, jump in the car to run errands with you, follow you around when you are doing chores, catnap in the afternoon, explore outside when you are cooking on the grill, and then cuddling on the couch for a movie before bed. Still unsure about whether or not to submit an application, well let me try to convince you further. Think of me and my personality like reclaimed wood. My life started out wonderful and beautiful with a great family, but over time I wasn’t the shining new thing and my life became dull and rough around the edges. My previous family knew that I needed a change and just like an old piece of wood, I got refinished in the care of ABR. Many of my house manners are quickly returning to me, such as remembering it is inappropriate to counter-surf, obeying commands, and politely sitting in front of the door for a bathroom break. If you ask me, I am easy to love because I have missed companionship so much that I don’t ever want to displease you. And it doesn’t hurt that I am so handsome! If you can picture me as an addition to your household, please submit the adoption application and mention Rocco-5568, and contact my state coordinator for more information. Rocco was surrender from the family who had him his entire life. It was a hard decision, but with a growing family and two working adults, Rocco spent most of his time outside alone and they knew he could be more happy. Rocco is in fantastic health with only a minor back issue that rarely flares up and currently up-to-date on shots. Rocco is currently fostered with two other Brittanys and is submissive even though he is the eldest. He understand several commands, good with children and cats, pulls on the leash (working to deter this behavior), crate-trained, and house broken. He would easily transition into most any family setting. Overall, he has the looks, the manners, and the personality to be as popular as all that reclaimed wood found on HGTV!
