Rocco is a highly intelligent, playful dog with unshakeable loyalty to his people. He loves playing fetch with balls and does amazing on walks. Despite his size he is not a hard puller on walks and can be managed well. He is both treat and attention motivated so he makes for easy obedience training. He gives the best hugs but watch out for slobber. He will do best in a home without other dogs due to his possessive nature with his toys and humans. He has had a partial tear of his ACL and may acquire a limp if playing too roughly. We have not sought surgery but it has been considered for quality of life.
