DOG LOCATION: Calgary, AB. Rocco is a 9 year old poodle-mix., weighing 65 lbs (29 Kg). Rocco is very sweet and likes people, even more so if you throw a ball or stick. He is good with other dogs but chases cats. Rocco gets excited around children and does like to chase. He will guard his food and toys. Rocco is crate trained and sleeps in his crate at night. He walks well on leash. Rocco does get hot spots occasionally, this could be due to allergies.
As we are getting to know Rocco better this is what his foster family has to say. Rocco is the biggest snuggle-bug you will ever meet. He loves to be with his person and he lives to please. Rocco is great with new people and will immediately go in for some lovin'. He enjoys making new doggy friends and is a great listener when the other dogs say they have had enough play for now. He loves to run, go for hikes and play with his toys. He listens very well when commands are given (sit, lay down, stay, come, go to bed, shake a paw and ola). We have experienced minor treat/toy guarding. A family that knows the guarding signs and an active family would be perfect for this boy. Although Rocco is 9.5 yrs old he does not show his age, he is full of life and love and he is up for anything at any time.
Stay tuned as we get to know Rocco better.
