Rocco has many awesome qualities...like his favorite snacks are toilet paper and shoe laces, his favorite activity is watching us switch laundry, finding socks and hoarding them, his favorite place to sleep is in your spot, his girlfriend is Ellie, a 150lb bull mastiff that lives next door (she is VERY cute and sweet...I get it). Rocco thinks everyone on the street is there to see/meet him and he LOVES kids, but I think it's their size he likes best....or the cookie crumbs.
My favorite ritual of his is when it's time to take care of business outside. He sits and stares at the house across the street. There are 4 kids that live there and he waits to see if he can get just a glimpse. It's a GREAT day if they are outside playing and he can force himself into their street hockey game. After a few seconds he turns around and tries to make his way up Ellie's (the bull mastiff) front steps. He could be classified as a stalker, this literally happens everytime we go out.
We searched through a few breeder, and finally found one we felt we could trust. She sent us photos of the puppies she had available and we instantly fell in love with Rocco (his name at the time was Shrek, but being a bulldog from Jersey it just wasn't right). His markings were so different from the other pups and there was something about him we couldn't put our finger on, but he was definitely the one for us. You know how you just know...right?! Frank drove to straight to New Jersey and back (13 hours) while I was home "nesting" getting ready for his arrival.
Hi! I'm Jenn. Frank and I are the proud owners of Rocco. He will be 1 on the 23rd (so sad...growing up too fast). He has more energy than a pack of toddlers at the local daycare. We thought it'd be fun for Rocco to meet other Frenchies in the area.
