Hi, I’m Rocco, a border collie/long-haired dachshund mix. The vet thinks that I’m about 3-4 years old. I am a sweet boy who loves to have body contact with humans. I love to sleep laying against a human leg and sit next to you on the couch, but I can also be very independent at times. I also enjoy walks, mental training sessions with treats, playing with other dogs, and laying in the backyard. Because I am fast and like to bolt, I need a fenced yard. I can become anxious when I am left alone or riding in a car, and need someone with patience who doesn’t leave me daily. I am getting better at being alone, working hard at controlling my anxiety, and getting really good at short-term separations from humans. I instinctively herd children when they run, which sometimes scares them, but I would never hurt them. I can jump very high and would enjoy agility training.

Rocco is neutered, current with vaccinations, on monthly heart worm prevention and microchipped.
