Rocco is extra-large - and has a heart to match.
A malamute great dane cross, at just 10 months old Rocco is seeking his forever home.
He's still a pup, and needs a family who will give him plenty of exercise, take him for adventures, and include him as part of their family.
As a big baby Rocco does need some more training in basic madders, expecially how to walk nicely on a lead and contain his enthusiasm at meeting new people.
Because of this, he would not be suitable for a home with small children, cats, livestock or other small animals.
Rocco loves other dogs, male and female, and would be happiest with a canine companion.
He also loves attention and snuggles.
Rocco can sit, shake hands, and is housetrained, but in return he needs a few things in his new home.
Secure fencing, toys, good quality food and lots of love and attention are essential.
Rocco has an open wound on his back - his vet is happy with the way it's healing and said he can find a new family while it's still healing, but it may take a little while to be fully healed.
Any existing dogs must come to the shelter and meet Rocco before and adoption can be approved.
If Rocco sounds like the big boy for you, contact Shoalhaven Animal Shelter on 4429 3410.
Last weeks pet of the week Cheeto has found his perfect forever home. His new family saw his picture in the paper and fell in love.
