I'm Rocco, Adopt Me!
Pit Bull Terrier Mix | Adult | Male
2-year-old Rocco is a sweet, handsome boy who says "hello" to everyone. He loves his treats and will happily learn new tricks as long as tasty morsels are involved! He is a wonder dog at quickly learning agility exercises such as jumping over hurdles, going up and down ramps, going through tunnels and just having a grand time! He offers ever-so-charming pawshakes at the slightest invitation. He can also chill out by your side while you read and relax. His loving nature is exhibited by giving wonderful wet kisses! We recommend Rocco take a Basic Manners class where he can learn polite ways of seeking creature comforts in life. He currently weighs 52 pounds.

Rocco's adopter must be at least 18 years old with valid state-issued identification. ARF encourages family members to participate in the adoption process, especially children and family dogs. Please visit ARF's web site for information on adoption and to view more cute canines.
