About Rochester

“Hi, my name is Rochester! I’m ready to cuddle when you are! I’m not sure where I came from…  but I am very excited to go home with you! I am ready for my forever family!

I’m convinced that I am a lap dog, since I love to cuddle so much, but my foster mom says I’m a big boy. Despite my size, I am very gentle and sweet. I get along very well with my foster brother. Even though I am twice his size, I am not rough at all when we play. I’m big softie, I guess. I like to cuddle with him too. I think I would be great on my own, or with another dog in the house.

My foster mom says I felt comfortable and at home right away. I am house trained and haven’t had any accidents inside. I respond very well to her when she calls my name, and I sit so nicely when she asks me to. I am learning how to stay and getting better at it every day. I love to look out the windows and watch the world go by. And I promise to alert you if there is any danger. I want to keep you safe.

I get very excited when my foster dad takes me on walks, but since I’m so big and strong, I tend to pull sometimes. I just need a little leash training is all. I may bark and pull when I see other dogs, so I should go to an active and physically fit home who has some experience with big dogs like me, ready to work on my leash training as well. I promise I will work very hard at listening to you. Don’t be intimidated from my size. My foster mom just says that I have that much more love to give!” – xo, Rochester
