Smiling Dog: Rocco
Dog's name and age: Rocco, 14 years
Tell us the story of how you adopted your dog? Working at Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region I saw Rocco was in and out of the shelter multiple times. My job was to promote adoptables on TV, radio, etc. and I tried just about everything to showcase what a wonderful dog he is. Day after day, Rocco sat in his kennel with no visitors, and no adopter prospects.
Every time I went to visit him, he quietly gazed at me while wagging his adorable quarter-length tail. Rocco was always happy to go on walks, outings, adoption events, and TV appearances with me, and we bonded.
