Miniature Pinscher
Male, 10 years old, 16 pounds
Meet Rocco, the most curious, optimistic dog imaginable. Rocco is always happy and wants to share his positive outlook on life with everyone he meets. He is all tail wags on a walk, stopping to smell the roses, politely meet new people, and gladly make friends with new dogs. His joy is instant when seeing other dogs, and he is eager to play.

Rocco learns quickly and wants to please his humans. He loves to snuggle and gives kisses liberally, though he isn't particularly clingy. He's an ideal fit for an active home to support his high energy level with daily walks and activities. Rocco has a poorly healed broken right foot that he doesn't put weight on. This barely slows him down -- he's an active, happy guy who can still handle stairs and run around.

Rocco has some fear of men that his foster family was helping him work through. Before they started working with him, he would bark in fear to keep men away from him. Teaching him that men are a great source for treats and walks will be an important lesson for his adopters to help him continue to learn. Rocco would probably do best in a home without children.

Rocco was surrendered to the Hollister Animal Shelter by his previous people who could no longer care for him.
