Rocco needs a home

Rocco is a 10-month-old neutered black and tan German shepherd mix. He is a large pup.

“I was transferred from Animal Care & Control to the Allen County SPCA. I am a very active boy who needs some obedience and manner training. I would love to attend doggy classes with you where we can work on these things!

“I do well with my housebreaking but may need an adjustment period when I come home with you. The staff recommends you crate train me so I stay safe while you are away. I will require a fence or trolley to come home with you so I can exercise safely!

“The staff feels I would do well with children older than 4 as long as they treat me nicely. I get along well with other dogs and even cats!

“If you are looking for an outgoing and adventurous new friend please ask to see me today!”

He is available for adoption at the Allen County SPCA, 4914 Hanna St.

The shelter is open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays.
