Adoptable Pet Of The Week: Rocco

WBCB 1490 AM’s Adoptable Pet of the Week is Rocco! He is an 11-year-old chihuahua/Shih Tzu mix. His owners loved him dearly, but a new set of twins on the way in addition to the child they already had proved too overwhelming.

Rocco has been with the shelter for two weeks and is looking for his forever home. He is playful and spunky, but is looking for a place to settle down for retirement.

As an older dog, Rocco is a bit set in his ways and sometimes doesn’t play well with young children. He has a normal diet, though Jack from the Bensalem Women’s Humane society noted a urine and blood test may be a good idea.
