Meet Rocco!

I am a beautiful 4 year old brindle-colored PIt Bull - but don't let my breed fool you!  I am very kind, gentle and loving - and the happiest guy you'd ever want to meet (just look at my smile!)  I am also a very big boy - and my size helps me when I make visits to people in wheelchairs, so they don't have to bend down as far to pet my soft fur.  My Dad likes to tease me and call me a big pussycat!

Things I Have Learned from HumansWhen you are well-behaved, you can break the stereotype that gives my breed a bad name. 

Things Humans Have Learned from Me:  Same answer as above...

Favorite Trick:  Surprising everyone I meet by being so laid back, and gentle. 

Favorite Treat:  I love to snack on everything!

Make No Bones About It...I Am a Great Therapy Dog Because:  I was raised by a great owner who worked hard to teach me manners, boundaries, and obedience.  I have a very loving soul, and am the most gentle dog you'd ever want to meet.   Once people realize that - they warm up to me instantly.

My Favorite Places to Visit:  Parkside at North East, Forestview at Springhill, The Barber Center Senior Center.  My volunteer handler is named Merchie.
