More about Rocco

What more do you need to say about Rocco?! He is the most handsome, chunky, gorgeous Staffie boy, approximately 3 years old. Rocco has joined us through no fault of his own, due to a change in circumstances with his previous owners, and he has found adjusting to the kennels environment quite difficult. We have given him his own space in a quieter part of the Centre and this has definitely helped him settle. Plus he has now got used to the friendly faces he sees every day and knows the routines. This has made life more bearable for him and he has become much more confident and outgoing recently.
People who know Staffies understand that they can be very sensitive dogs and they can find the excitable environment of the kennels quite overwhelming. Rocco has done very well to settle so quickly but we would love to see him back in a loving home as soon as possible.
Rocco will want two good walks each day (he LOVES his walks!) and a good-sized secure garden for some fun and games. He is very neat and tidy in his kennel and not destructive with his toys or bedding. Rocco likes to sit in the front of his kennel and see what is happening around the Centre. He is a very well behaved boy, and is content to wait until it is his turn for attention. Rocco would thrive best in a home with a set routine and lots of human contact throughout the day. He would probably find a chaotic home with lots of comings and goings a little unsettling and would prefer a more structured environment. He would be happy in a family with older, dog experienced children (older teens please), or with an active couple. Experience of Staffies and their special little ways would be desirable but not essential. Rocco will be popular so don’t hang about if you would like to offer a home to this very handsome boy.
