Dogs Trust Shoreham dog of the week: Meet Rocco, an ex-racer in need of supportive owners

Rocco is a two-year-old greyhound with a lovable character and Dogs Trust Shoreham would love to find him a multi-person household to call his forever home.

Rocco the lovable ex-racer

Staff at the rehoming centre say that whilst Rocco’s cheekiness will shine through eventually, he is a sensitive boy with a few anxieties about the world around him.

Rocco adores spending time with people and becomes unsettled when left alone, this means Rocco requires a multi-person household where there is always someone home to entertain him.

The youngest member of Rocco’s new home should be at least 12-years-old.

Due to Rocco’s past life as a racer he has potential for a high-chase-drive, this makes him unsuitable to live with cats, birds or other small furry pets.

There is a chance Rocco could live with a larger dog, but they would have to bond well over multiple meetings.

Rocco is also unable to go on off-lead walks, so would love a decent sized garden where he can run free.
