Can you make life less “ruff” for Rocco?

What is your name? Rocco.

How old are you? Four years old.

What’s your breed? A collie

Where are you living at the moment? Dogs Trust West Calder, near Livingston.

Why are you there? I am looking for a good home.

Where would you like to be? I’d like to live in a quieter home with an active family. I am a sweet dog who is happy home alone for a few hours and enjoys going for trips in the car.

What qualities do you need from your owners? I am an extremely affectionate and loving dog who lets you know how much I care by snuggling into your arms for big sooky cuddles. Like most collies, I also love to play and am at my happiest when playing fetch. I am a very intelligent dog who enjoys being kept busy and I’m keen to learn new things. I love nothing more than making you happy. I am shy boy at first but easily make friends, especially if you have a tennis ball to play with. I am also a bit of a water baby and love to splash about in any kind of water, whether it be dancing in the sea on a hot summers day, paddling in streams pretending to fish or just jumping in puddles for the fun of it.

Anything else? I am house-trained, happy home alone short times and enjoys the car. I am vaccinated, neutered, micro-chipped and come with insurance and free behavioural advice. If you can offer me a home, please contact the centre direct on (01506) 873459.
