Why Rocco should be a StubbyDog Superhero:
Rocco knows a lot about BSL, educating children and overcoming obstacles. In his 3 years he has obtained 2 therapy dog certificates, a CGC and he has been in 2 calendars and 1 magazine. He is "Mr September" in this years StubbyDog Super Hero calendar!
Rocco loves getting good press for his breed. He has changed many people's minds about Pit Bulls. Children love reading to Rocco at the local library and also visiting with him at the Ronald McDonald House. There have even been a few kids who were afraid of dogs, but they became comfotable around Rocco because he is such a mellow, gentle dog. Their parents were suprised to have the first dog that their fearful child pet, be a Pit Bull! Score one for Rocco!!
In addition to his therapy work, he advocates for his fellow Pit Bulls by attending B-More Dog's "Pit Bulls on Parade" which is a parade in Baltimore to raise awareness and hopefully put an end to breed bans and laws against the breed (like the current law that is in limbo in MD)
In his spare time, Rocco loves to play with his sister Sadie at the lake or beach. They love to swim!! Rocco loves other animals and also has a kitty brother named King Henry. King Henry is the boss of 70 lb Rocco the Pit Bull!!
Rocco hopes you vote for him, he has lots of experience as a superhero and he would make you very proud!!
