CONFIDENT RESIDENT DOG WHO WILL NOT OVERWHELM HIM
OLDER DOG SAVVY CHILDREN
NOT CAT TESTET
PATIENT BUT ACTIVE HOME WHO CAN SHOW HIM WHAT HE MISSED BY BEING A LOCKDOWN PUPPY
Rocco is an 18 month old King Charles Cavalier described by his foster mum as a truly adorable boy who has been affected through being a lockdown puppy. When he first arrived at his foster home he was unsure of the other dogs and would move away. He’s now starting to find them fascinating and wanting to join in with gentle interactions within his comfort zone. He is a licky little boy and loves to give his foster mum kisses but will also lick when he gets anxious and needs reassuring. Rocky totally adores balls and although he doesn’t bring them back, if you don’t mind collecting it yourself, he will let you throw it for him over and over and will bark in excitement.
Rocco is not a big foodie and he needs to be encouraged to eat and drink.
Rocco can be nervous when he first meets new people and may be reluctant to come to you. He may take time to suss you out but once he does and he decides you are acceptable you will be his best friend. Once you have formed a bond, he likes to follow you around and stay close. Currently his favourite place to be is with his 2 legged foster sibling on his bed sleeping next to him whilst he plays on his Xbox. He also likes to sleep there at night and will sleep contently all night.
Roco is absolutely fine with foster mums 13 year old son and shares his bed to feel safe on but he knows to give Rocco space when he needs it. Rocco sometimes gets over excited and become chatty and mouthy so young children would not be ideal
Rocco has not been tested with cats
Being a lock down pup has made meeting people and other dogs scary but with time and reassurance he will definitely learn to trust. He is fully toilet trained and loves being close to his humans snuggling on the settee above your head or on the bed is where he is at his happiest in the home. He quite often will take himself off to bed in the evenings and settle down to stay there all night.
Rocco walks beautifully on the lead and is currently walked on a training lead in the park and his recall is coming on nicely. He is now meeting other dogs and learning about the outside world. He has met other dogs at the park and bark if unsure or scared of them but this is being worked on and is going to be a work in progress. Once he feels safe around other dogs, he is absolutely fine trotting alongside them. His new parents need to continue this positive interaction and choose which dogs he meets to help him grow in confidence. Rocco travels really well in car with no problems.
Rocco needs a home with a gentle confident resident dog that will give him space to adjust and not dominate or overwhelm him. He would benefit from a more confident laid-back dog that doesn’t mind sharing their humans but will also be happy to show him all the things that he finds scary are safe and fun. He would love an active home so he can be kept busy and experience the world he never got the chance to see through the pandemic
