The photo above speaks to the relief of being pulled from a shelter. Many abandoned dogs don't end up next to a kind human on a soft cozy couch. That was almost the case for Rocco until Stephanie heard about this sweet boy!
We pulled Rocco from Ventura County Animal Services due to their over capacity situation. He was suffering from neglect resulting in sore paws and dermatitis. He had obvious wounds and we felt that it was unlikely for someone to adopt him while numerous healthy dogs sat in the kennels beside him. He was timid, but it was easy to see that he was sweet creature in an unfortunate situation.
Rocco is now on a grain free diet and receiving the love and care needed for his recovery. His wounds are healing nicely and we will continue to monitor his progress with the veterinarian. Stephanie says that he is quite the cuddle bug, travels well, and gets along with both dogs and cats. We look forward to learning more about Rocco's personality as he progresses. For now, our main concern is to see his health fully restored!
It has been estimated that Rocco is approximately 5 years old and he appears to be a German Pinscher. His history is unknown, however, he has been neutered and vaccinated. Rocco will be available for adoption pending his rehabilitation. If you are interested in financially supporting Rocco's recovery, please visit the "Contribute" tab.
Thank you Stephanie Burgard for fostering Rocco and we appreciate OneMoreLife Photography for documenting his journey!
