Looking for a nice family pet? Look no further, you've found Rocko! He was surrendered to the shelter because his owner could no longer care for him. Rock's a great all-around dog that likes kids, cats and other dogs. He's 5 years old but is as lively as a 2 year old. Rocko loves his rides in the car and is particularly fond of men. We've saved the best for last. Rocko has just returned from 12 weeks of training in obedience and manners at the Grafton Correctional Institution. He is known as one of our prison dogs. He needs a home ASAP so he doesn't lose his training. Better check him out soon, prison dogs are popular and Rocko won't be around long.
