Best Tricks: He knows all the usual, but his favorite trick is bonking his hard little head into yours while you're trying to put on his leash.
Arrival Story: We acquired Rocco when Gus was only 3 months old. So yes, we had two puppies at once. It actually ended up working out okay (Gus showed his little brother the ropes).
Bio: Rocco is your typical Italian Greyhound. He's really bouncy. Sometimes its cute, but mostly it hurts (especially when he deflects off of your stomach). He's incredibly mischievious. His favorite game is "Whack-a-Nina", which consists of him bonking her really hard on the head with his paw, and her chewing his face off. He has a really short attention span. He also is the ultimate diva knowing exactly what he wants and when he wants it. He has the boniest butt that you'll ever see in a "lap dog" and hates having to share attention with his siblings. He's easy to maintain (no shedding and virtually odorless) but makes up for that with his demands for affection. His antics are mostly humorous, and he adds a certain "circus-like" quality to the dynamics of our home.
