Hi everyone…my name is Rocco and I’m an 8-month-old pup. Yes, I’m a young Golden in love with life who is trying to figure out your wonderful human world. My amazing foster mom says I’m doing pretty well with all your stuff but of course, I’m still a pup so I still have a lot to learn. For example…the leash thing is a work-in-progress and I still mouth a bit if I get too excited but I am getting better every day so, if you choose me, you might need to be a little patient until I complete my schooling and get 100% on my test, which I’m sure I will real soon. I love all people and all dogs. What’s not to love, after all? Everybody has been so kind to me and all my canine cousins are just a hoot to play with. The doc says I’m healthy. I’m gentle with my treats as long as I don’t get too excited. You can touch me all over, loud noises don’t bother me, and you can leave me alone if you have to go out without me. I’m not a big barker unless someone comes to the door and disturbs me but that’s not a bad thing, right? In a way, that’s my job, isn’t it? I love car rides but I’m not sure about swimming yet but I have a feeling that will come in time because I sure love the hose and the sprinkler in the garden. I am house-trained and in love with your human world. I can be a bit stubborn with some of your silly rules at times but who among us is perfect (ha-ha)!
