Rocko is a teeny weeny little Yorkie who would love to find a quiet home to settle in to after losing his owner. He's a nervous chap but isn't too bad if you're with him as he gets a lot of confidence from his handlers, and he comes around very quickly. Rocko thrives on attention and returns it tenfold, sometimes a little too much! He's quite a licky dog and this does sometimes escalate into a little nibble when he's overexcited.
Type of home needed
Rocko gets along fairly well with other dogs but definitely prefers quiet ones - he's also very little so probably won't appreciate anything large and intimidating. He will need a home where any children are aged over 16, due to the way he can nibble when excited. He doesn't mean any harm at all, he just gets carried away. He may be rather attached to you when he first come home so be prepared to have him permanently by your side! He is house trained but dogs will often toilet in the house when they first go to a new home so please be patient if he does this. He hasn't had a lot of training done with him and would definitely benefit from learning some basics.
More about me
Rocko will need a few visits to get to know him. As we can't offer those at the centre at the moment, he will stay safe with us until restrictions are lifted. If you are interested in adopting Rocko, please click "Come And Meet Me" below, and we can begin the process.
