Rocco is a 7 year old Border Collie/Lab. He is a neutered male and about 55 lbs. We took him in from family member that could not handle his high energy 6 years ago. Rocco is a fantastic healthy dog, and the envy of all dog owner at the dog park that wish their dog would bring the ball back. He has an extreme ball drive, and has volunteered for pest control around our small yard in Long Beach.
Often described as goofy or cute, Rocco is an easy friend. He will chase the ball as long as you care to throw it. Tell him "last one" and he'll head into the house for some water. He pulls me on a skateboard with a pulling harness, and can usually make it two laps around the neighborhood if it's not too hot out.
Unfortunately he is not the right dog to be around my 2 week old son. He has a history of searching out and snapping at crying infants in our family. No one has ever been bitten, but we don't care to let him get close enough to find out.
I will be sad to see him go.
