Meet handsome Rocko! He may be big but don't let his size put you off as he is a super friendly gentle giant who loves everyone. Rocko came in with Jess (see her separate profile) and we would potentially home them together to the right home but we are also looking at separate homes for them too.

This softy would make a great companion for someone who works from home or able to take a furry friend to their office as he happily chills with you (as long as he gets a few cuddles in between!). 

Rocko is housetrained and can be left for periods up to 3-4 hours but this would need to be gradually introduced until he settles into a new environment.

He has recently met children from the age of 2 years upwards and seemed happy in their company so we would consider a home with children 2+. 

Rocko is a big lad weighing almost 60kg and generally can walk quite nicely on the lead. Though he can have his moments of excitement when out on walks so any potential owner will need to be able to manage strong dogs. On lazier days though, he is happy to potter round a secure garden. 

He could potentially live with a suitably matched dog but this would be reviewed on a case by case basis and depend on successful meetings.

Please call 01228 560082 or email us between 10.00am and 4.00pm, and speak to a member of our Small Animal Team.


On average, we have 400 animals come into our shelter every year. Please take a look at some of our dogs looking for loving homes and see if you can find a friend for life. Where appropriate, all of our animals are vaccinated, microchipped and neutered. We also give each animal a behavioural assessment to identify their needs and help you find your perfect companion.
