Heavenly Angels Animal Rescue in New York asked that we introduce you to Rocco, an adorable Beagle who has had a really rough time of it recently, through no fault of his own. TAILS asked him to share his story with us…
Hi my 2-legged friends, I’m Rocco. I want to tell you about the day my whole world turned upside down. It started out really well, like any other day. I woke up, ate breakfast, and took my morning bathroom break. My “dad” said we were going for a ride and I gladly hopped into the car. We drove around and we pulled up in front of a building. I heard barking and thought to myself, “Great, we are at the shelter. I will have a new friend”, but alas I was surrendered at Heavenly Angels Animal Rescue. I cried for days not realizing what just happened. I was the family pet for 9 years, and it saddens me that I no longer have a home or family to call my own.
A little about me is that I am a good walker, and a I am totally house-trained. I am so sad to be in a cage but they love me at the shelter. Everyone says I am no trouble at all. As kind as they are to me here, I spent nine years in a home with a family. I really miss having my own family, so I hope someone adopts me soon.
What is your favorite board game and why? That’s easy, it’s Clue. Since beagles are known to use their nose to hunt and look for clues, this is by far the best game ever!!!! How can I possibly lose?
What is your favorite song and why? Home by Michael Buble. I like some crooning music.
Beach or Mountains? I love going back to my roots, and going up where the country air is fresh and clean. I’d gather some of my hound friends, and go on a nice trail hike. You could lead the way!
Why should YOU go home with someone today? I promise I’ll melt your heart. I am the perfect pet because I already know how to behave. None of that silly puppy stuff from me. And I would be so grateful for a second chance in a new home. I’d be the best canine friend you could ever hope to have!
