CLOSTER, N.J. -- An 8-year-old Pekingese at CLAWS in Closter is in need of a new home.

Rocco was left at a shelter by his owners who no longer wanted to keep him, so the rescue took him into the group and got him his very own foster home.

He took about a week to adjust and was pretty nervous at first. But now, Rocco asks for attention and is starting to play with his dog roommate.

"He came to us looking like a serious little guy but now you'll catch him wagging his tail and smiling," CLAWS said.

He likes to go for walks and is low maintenance. He would be best in a quieter home without children.
