Rocco

Happy Monday everyone! Is anyone out there is looking for a practically perfect and incredibly handsome hound? A chance like this doesn’t come around everyday, so if you have been thinking about adding a Basset to your family now is the time. My name is Rocco and I was recently returned to CBHR because my family situation changed and they could no longer keep me. Thankfully once a CBHR hound always a CBHR hound and they took me back with open arms. The good news is that I was well cared for and I know all about living in a house. I am completely housebroken and I quickly figured out the two doggie doors in my foster home. Boy are those doggie doors cool, I can go in and out whenever I want.

I am about seven years old and I am way past that chewing stage and all that other young dog stuff. You don’t even need a crate for me , because I don’t get into anything while you are gone. I am a little shy at first, but I warm up pretty quickly. My foster Mom says the way to my heart is through my stomach and legs. That’s right, give me a walk, give me a treat and my heart is yours. Speaking of heart… I have a really BIG heart. I just love my foster parents and my favorite time is when they call me up on the bed for snuggle time. I love to snuggle- On the bed, on the couch, or even on the floor. I am also very smart and obedient. After snuggles in the bed when they tell me to get down and go on my own bed, I know just what they are talking about. I will gladly warm up your spot on the couch, but when you tell me “off” I get right down. Foster Mom says it is really hard to tell my beautiful chocolate eyes to get down.

Not only do I love my people , but I love the other dogs in my foster home. One of the them is a gigantic dog called a Great Dane. Wow, you would not believe how big he is, and he has the longest legs I have ever seen. The other dog is a Basset like me and his name is Gus. He is my best buddy and we spend hours together chasing one and other, sleeping together, grooming each other and guarding the house. I love to play with toys and I especially like the ones with stuffing. I am a great eater, and luckily I am great walker too. That is the secret to how I keep my great basset figure. I get to go to doggie daycare a few days a week and I really like that. I was a little shy at first, but now I trot right in there like I own the place. My foster family says I am “one in a million”.I would be a wonderful companion to any family, but would especially love a home with another dog.
