Rocco and Olaf
April 8, 2018

Meet Rocco and Olaf! This Dynamic Duo are coming back into the program because one of their family members is highly allergic to them. Rocco is 5 years old and Olaf is 4. They have been together for years and are bonded, so we will placing them together. Olaf is the joker out of the two, he is very sweet, high energy and loves everyone. Rocco is cautious and timid when he first meets new people, so slow introduction need to happen with him, but once he warms up to you, he is a love bug. Olaf is a good confidence builder for his brother, Rocco. Both dogs have attended basic obedience classes and know their basic commands well, sit, down, etc. They walk well on a leash with the correct equipment, front pull harness. They are both housebroken and are not currently crated, and are not destructive if left out alone at home. They are used to being walked daily and are used to a fenced in yard, so we will be looking for a home with a fenced in yard. They are both food motivated, so working with them will be easy. They will counter surf if not watched closely. Olaf is a pro at digging through the bathroom trash can and tearing up whatever he finds. Rocco does the same with the kitchen trash if given a chance.

Rocco can be a bit of a bully. He definitely is the one in charge between the two. He watches over the fenced back-yard like a hawk, and any bird, bunny, squirrel or other invader will get chased and barked at. He will also sound the alarm any time there is something going on in the front a neighbor gets home, the mailman, the UPS driver, the trash truck, kids playing ball, etc. So their new family will need to work with him, so all new interactions are positive ones in his environment. Rocco is very sweet with the family and anybody that is acknowledge as okay with the family. He will take a few minutes to warm up to you, but once he does, he is very sweet.

Olaf is the Joker out of the two and he LOVES playing with toys. Anything left on the floor is fair game though his favorite is a Kong Wubba. Anything structurally weak he will tear apart in no time, so the Kong toys are definitely a must. He gets bored with them quickly so a good combination and variety is important. Olaf will chew up your shoes if you leave them on the floor and you leave the house, so in addition to the trash being put a way, all shoes need to put away until their new home can work with them on leaving these items.

Both Olaf and Rocco can never be close enough to their humans. They love to be petted and scratched, and their favorite thing in the world is when they can lay on the couch and snuggle up with their humans. Both boys are still jumpers, and if given the opportunity will jump up on people to say hello, so their new home will need to work with them on this behavior. They are not great with other dogs, or cats, so no kitties for these boys. They have been around children, but because they are very active boys and still like to jump, we will not be placing them in a home with children under 16. So older children or no children for these boys.
