3 year old Labrador Retriever mix

Rocco is a goofball! He's a big playful boy who wants to explore!

On a recent four-mile run, this guy made a point of running through puddles. Then he realized he was getting wet. So he changed tactics, going out of his way to run around them. Rocco even tried running sideways, hoping to keep the same pace moving forward, but allowing him to keep an eye out for squirrels!

Rocco may be goofy, but he is a lot of fun. "I'm awesome," he tries to tell you. "Let's go on adventures." There's no telling where those adventures may lead, but it's safe to say that you'll make a lot of friends along the way. On that same run, Rocco seemed interested in meeting every dog who approached him. He wasn't very fond of the small ones who yapped at him, but he wasn't aggressive towards those, either.

It's too early to say how he will be with kids, although he had no problems with those he met that day. He has yet to encounter cats.

Rocco is not only goofy, playful and fun--he's also a handsome guy. Tall and stocky, he has sweet eyes and a unique face.

And he is cuddly. After all, what follows a good run and lots of squirrel watching than some petting?

Rocco needs an active companion, maybe a house with a yard to play in, lots of daily runs and walks, and the occasional hike. And he needs a comfy bed to sleep on.

And squirrels. Throw a few of those in and life would be perfect for Rocco.
