Rocko is the Hill Pet of the Week. He’s a 1-year-old Terrier/ Pit Bull mix who can be adopted. Here’s his bio shared by the Washington Humane Society shelter on New York Avenue NE:
Rocko here! I’m a super lovable dog available for adoption at the Washington Humane Society’s New York Ave shelter.
I came to the shelter because my family could no longer care for me. Although I am still a young dog I’m medium energy and to be honest my favorite past time is hanging out with human friends. As you can tell from my photos I am really good at sitting in my friend’s laps.
I also like to go on long walks and runs and I think I would probably love going on hikes – checking out nature and seeing new sites with my humans sounds like a perfect day to me. Come meet me today and make me a part of your family!
To adopt Rocko or other pets from the Humane Society, see the Petango adoption site or call 202-576-6664.
This weekend, the Washington Humane Society will run a special adoption price of $11.26 (the date of Thanksgiving) for all animals.
