BIO: Rocko is an 11 month old male who is very young and learning manners. He knows sit and wait. He was an owner surrender with no information presented. He needs a lot of work on learning manners-especially when you put the leash on him. He gets very excited and likes to mouth. No intent to hurt just doesn’t understand right behaviors. During eval-Pj was able to touch paws, ears and belly rub and just absorbed all the attention. The only improvement is the behavior with the association on leash. NHS is working on positive reinforcement with him in training but would really like to get him out of the shelter before he regresses. He has been around female dogs-some good some interactions. No hackles go up-just barking at certain dogs.
All in all, Pj feels he will be a great dog just needs a home that can provide structure and work on additional skills to give him a great demeanor for a forever home.
