About me

I am a 1 year old Bulldog. Most people fall in love with me from the moment they see me but don't be fooled I can be a monkey and I can certainly play rough! I enjoy playing games but I can get over excited at times and become like a coiled spring so I need an owner who knows when to bring me back down to a calm level, most importantly someone with Bulldog experience.

Sadly I lack confidence around male people and have at times shown aggressive behaviour in which the staff are working with. Due to this I will need many regular visits to the centre in order to build up my confidence this would ideally mean someone living locally to our Berkshire centre.

Being a Bulldog I have plenty of energy and I am pretty smart but I don't have ideal physical build to be walking miles so plenty of stimulation at home is a must.

Due to my boisterous nature I am seeking an Adult only home preferably a female only household. This would need to be considered if you have regular visitors to the home.

Rocco has had previous history of resource guarding so any new owner would need to have experienced this and be confident in handling a dog with these issues. 

Once settled in a home the staff feel Rocco will make the most wonderful companion, as he really is an affectionate, lovable boy.
