Rocco is an affectionate, fun-loving, adolescent German Shepherd Dog. He's around a year old (born 1/20/2018). He came into the rescue with his sister, Lizzy.

They still act like pups, full of curiosity and MISCHIEF. Like all young GSDs, they get into stuff, explore, and do the crazy things puppies do: especially chew! They need an experienced, patient home that can help them learn what's allowed and what's not.

Rocco is playful, energetic, assertive, rambunctious, and confident. He is eager to please his person. Like any growing youngster, he still has lots of energy and an inquisitiveness that needs to be monitored. He is a smart and athletic dog and would be likely successful in advanced training.

Around other dogs, he likes to steal the affection from people and be the star of the show. He gets along great with the older GSD in the foster home. He also LOVES going to the dog park and socializing with the other dogs. (There are no cats or kids in the foster home, so we have no information on how they do with them.)

He is house-trained and crate-trained. He's learning good leash manners in the foster home. He is already a great jogging buddy, and he'd love to be able to continue to get plenty of exercise after adoption.

A completed adoption application, with vet and personal references, and a home check are required to adopt Rocco. If you are interested in adopting Rocco, please fill out an adoption application. All adoptions are approved solely at the discretion of the RSGSR board of directors.
