The story of Rocco, left tied to a bench by his former family. There was also a note next to him: that’s what it said
Rocco is a poor dog abandoned in Madrid, with a muzzle and a ticket. It all started when El Refugio volunteers received the alarm about an animal left tied to a bench in a park in the Madrid district of Pilar.
Children are used to intervening to help animals in need and to find themselves in front of cases of neglect and abuse. But each time their heart shatters into a thousand pieces, just as if it were the first episode.
The thing that struck the boys most was there Note left next to Rocco.
Hi, my name is Rocco. I don’t bite, I’m 9 months old, the family that had me couldn’t keep having me because they’re unemployed. I have no microchip, no vaccine, I am a very playful puppy, take me with you. I have my food and things in my bag, don’t leave me here.
Abandoned and betrayed by the people he loved, but at least the latter bothered to leave him everything he needed and until then they had always looked after his health conditions. In fact, after the medical examination, the puppy was found to be very well.
Despite this, the volunteers wanted to address, with an appeal on social media, to that family that took the drastic decision to abandon their pet. They wanted to tell them that they could take Rocco to the refuge and don’t leave it on the street encountering dangers.
When you open the doors of your house to a four-legged friend, you have to take some responsibility. Rocco is only 9 months old and the boys wonder how it is possible that the situation of his former owners has precipitated in such a short time. Could they take care of him nine months ago? A question that will never have an answer.
The new life of the dog Rocco
Rocco’s problem was another. He couldn’t find a family because one of them belonged “dangerous breeds“, Which a possible adopter does not even look at, especially if it is an abandoned dog.
He’s super good with dogs and people. The only danger you run with Rocco after playing with him for a while, is that he might lick your body to thank you.
Fortunately, a few months after his abandonment, a loving family has read his story and are interested in him. Today Rocco lives with his new human parents and is happy. He has forgotten his abandonment and now he is no longer afraid.
