ROCKO – 17968
Safe - 1-13-2018 Manhattan
Hello, my name is Rocko. My animal id is #17968. I am a desexed male tan dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 6 years old.
I came into the shelter as a owner surrender on 09-Jan-2018, with the surrender reason stated as person circumstance- landlord won’t allow.
Rocko is at risk for behavioral reasons. Rocko is reported by his previous owner to be “very overprotective”. In the shelter, Rocko displays high levels of resource guarding behavior, and a tendency to snap. Medically, Rocko does have some symptoms which should be further investigated, including cataracts affecting both eyes and associated blindness, and possible diabetes.
