Dog of the Week: Roc

Come meet Roc!

I’m a Neopolitian Mastiff Mix with brindle/black coloring and a patch of white on my head and muzzle. I weigh about 70 lbs., but don’t let my size fool you, because I’m just a gentle giant who needs a home because one of my human siblings had an allergy issue.

I have the most amazing eyes and really pretty coloring. I did well on all my evaluations – handling was a breeze and walking on the leash was no problem.

I met some dogs and we got along pretty well. I met some cats and showed a little interest in them, so maybe a home without cats would be a good idea for me. I’m a big guy who’s active and loves to go on daily walks. I would love to meet you, some come on down to the shelter that I live at  to see if you could be my perfect match.

I was born on Valentine’s day a few years ago and I’m a big love bug. I should meet all children under 13 and your resident dogs.
