We adopted Roca at Rescue Ranch when she was just 10 weeks old. I’d been watching her on Facebook since she was born, thanks to foster mom Laura’s daily videos. Roca (then Gayle) was one of 10 pups born to Shadow and Kunta; both dogs had been surrendered to Rescue Ranch. We were impressed with Kunta when we met him, and a couple of months later our good friends adopted him, too. Kunta and Roca get along super well and we started getting together for play dates right away.
When we adopted Roca, we had no idea the country would soon be dealing with a global pandemic. My husband and I already worked from home, so needless to say Roca thinks it’s perfectly normal to be around her people 24/7. She’s grown up to be a calm, quiet, and friendly dog who loves people, snow, meadows, and her kitties Toby and Binx. We hike or walk with her twice a day, and she sleeps at the foot of our bed at night. We can’t imagine life without her.
