Rocco in Jackson, MI

Just Adopted!

Hi, I’m Rocco - I really want a forever home where someone will spend time with me! I get along with children of all ages, but would prefer school-aged children. In my foster home I have Cavalier friends to play with and a fenced yard to explore. My foster family has a two-year-old grandchild whom I find very interesting and I am gentle with her even when she is rough with me.

My former owner released me to Rescue because of household and employment changes that left me alone for more than nine hours each work day. She said that wasn’t fair to me, and I agree.

My vaccinations are up to date and I’ve had a dental cleaning. I have a Grade 2 heart murmur that does not require medication and an arrhythmia. I also have some difficulty hearing, but I’m learning hand signs very quickly. That is why I need a fenced yard – for my safety.

I’ve been micro-chipped and am ready to move in with you. I will be your friend forever and I will make sure you don’t get lost, because I will be right beside you.

If you can offer me the forever home I need, and are within reasonable driving distance of Jackson, MI, please complete our online application and then contact Jan at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.so she knows you've applied for me.

Thank you!
