Meet Rocco, an endearing 6-7 months old pit mix with a very long pink tongue!
You can tell from his exuberant expressions that he’s one jolly fellow!
Rocco is very attentive (almost all the pictures were taken while we were walking). As a result, he walks backwards gracefully.
He also sits nicely for treats- he’ll be a star pupil in obedience classes!
Rocco is still a puppy, so he does have a bit of energy.
The good news is, he loves to play with his toys and is learning the basics of fetch.
I say he’s still learning, because he hasn’t learned to bring the toy back, though he is more than willing to come to you for a treat or a hug.
Doesn’t Rocco look so happy here? Just a few days ago, when I first met him, he was a little shy and quivering a bit.
I must admit, I took him out for a walk because he was wagging his tail furiously and practically begged to go out.
It turned out that he had to go to bathroom, and that’s when I realized he was house trained. Such a good boy!
Rocco likes other dogs, though I think he’d prefer to have attention all to himself.
When you pet him, he leans on you and lets you know how much he likes you.
In short, it is nearly impossible not to like Rocco! It is also almost impossible not to smile when looking at him.
Just look at how happy he is on a walk!
Won’t you give Rocco the loving home that he needs?
