Meet Rocko!

The Happy Tails Animal Shelter Pet of the Week is Rocko, a 6-month-old, brindle and white mutt. We aren’t super sure what breed or what mix of breeds he is, but we do know he is a sweetheart. He is full of that puppy energy and loves to run and jump. Whenever we go on walks, he does well on the leash and we are working hard to keep him from jumping up on people. He loves to play fetch with a tennis ball and any other toy. In the few days we have had him, he has done pretty well with not having any accidents in his cage. He also goes to the bathroom the minute we get outside, so we believe he may have had some training on it in the past. We have had Rocko around some other dogs and he is curious at first, but quickly loses interest. He also doesn’t seem to mind the cats too much. Come meet Rocko. He will likely jump up and lick your face when he first meets you, but then he will settle down. The dogs love having visitors, especially if that means they get to meet their forever families. Visit him at the shelter, located at 8954 N. West Shafer Drive, next to the Dollar General in Buffalo. Hours are 10 a.m. to noon and 5-6 p.m. Tuesdays, 10 a.m. to noon Thursdays, and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays.
