I'm not quite ready to go to my new home.

Hi! My Name Is (Adult) Rocco

I'm in the Recovery Room - I'll Be Available Soon

Rocco is a super cute poodle mix from the Napa Shelter euthanasia list who needs a surgery before we can make him available for adoption. We'll spare you the graphic images of his hind end, but Rocco is suffering from untreated perianal fistulas that are badly infected. When his foster mom picked him up, the shelter described his bootie as "horrifying" and they're not wrong. The poor guy must have been so uncomfortable. Rocco got a close shave from our vet to help keep him clean and remove the matted feces. We have started him on a prescription hydrolyzed diet, oral antibiotics and an antibiotic ointment. Unfortunately, the condition of his tushie is WAY past special diets and ointments alone. Rocco requires a surgical repair to live a good life. The good news is that Rocco is a cuddly, well behaved little dude who should have a bright future ahead of him if we can get him the treatment he needs. We're letting the diet and antibiotic do their work to prepare him for surgery for the best possible outcome. In the meantime, we are getting to know him so that we can find him a great long term home.

This pooch will need to eat a special diet for life and he may also require future ointment and/or antibiotics depending on the outcome of his surgery so his adopters should keep this in mind.
