Rocko is a sweet old boy who was found as a stray. Estimated 12 year old lovebug who is blind (seems to see lights/shadows) and partially deaf but will wholeheartedly steal your heart!

EDUCATION:
*Learn that he will steal your food if you let him! He LOVES food
*House trained- having pee pads really helps him too
*Crate trained- has stayed in for 8 hours + and no accidents! Helps to play classical music
*Average energy level

ACTIVITIES ROCKO ENJOYS:
*EATING ALL TREATS! (Did we mention he LOVES food?) all meats & meat sticks, cheeses, peanut butter
*Walks! Anywhere and everywhere
*Car rides- getting used to them
*Attention please- lots of snuggles & good neck scratches (on left & ride sides please! That’s the SPOT!)
*Napping
*Being by his people- watch TV, read, hang out & this buddy will be close by

SKILLS:
*Responds best to hand claps! To get attention & come to you =)
*Adapts and memorizes stairs and home areas like a pro
*Dogs: friendly but does not like to share his food
*Kids: loves ‘em! Patient with young and older kids, it’s even better if they pet and scratch him
*People: friendly, loves everyone!
*Walks- very manageable & doesn’t pull or bark, just monitor for anything he could trip over or fall into
*Pee pads- finds them!

CHALLENGES:
*Needs his own space to eat - he thinks all food could be his food so may get barky, have placed his food & water bowls far from other dog’s
*May regurgitate food- helps to soften food with warm water and let sit first
*May have some potty accidents in the house- does his best to get on pee pads but misses sometimes. He does best when taken out often

THE PERFECT HOME:
*Will be attentive to his special needs as a blind, partially deaf dog- needs daily eye ointment twice a day
*Will give him lots of special scratches, cuddles, treats, and walks!
*Will be patient and kind to his occasional potty accidents indoors by pee pads
*Will have a fenced yard to give him an area to roam and run around in
*Will treat him as the very special fuzzy sweet boy that he is! =)
