Princess Sissy and her knight, Rocco

We found little Princess Sissy injured, recently hit by car, on the side of the road some weeks ago, on Day 2 of our Ploiesti Neutering Challenge. She was taken to the vet but fortunately the X-ray showed her injured leg wasn't broken, just presenting fissures that could heal in a growing puppy. So Sissy got her injured leg bandaged, and was placed in foster care with another young abandoned puppy, Rocco. As for Rocco, he had been a shy, skinny little guy with no appetite, no tail wagging, just a miserable looking soul, yet another puppy to worry about in the beginning.

Little did we know how well these two would get along and help each other flourish. From day 1 of being together, Rocco embraced Sissy's presence and truly became her knight, chivalrously allowing her to eat first, and accepting any kind of behavior from her. Her presence made Rocco open up like we had never imagined: now Rocco is one of the happiest, most playful doggies I know, always wanting to play, and constantly wagging his tail. Meet Princess Sissy and her knight, Rocco, now:

 
Sissy and Rocco are now always playful, energetic puppies thriving together

Sissy is now approximately 3 months old, a friendly girl with a big, healthy appetite, and quite a beauty. Like a real princess!

Rocco is about 5-6 months old, very playful with other dogs, but keeping a small distance from unfamiliar people still. Given how much he has flourished since he was placed with Sissy, and how much he enjoys playing with other puppies such as Lazzie, Rocco would do best in a home with at least one other dog. He'll stay a small dog of no more than 7-8 kilos when fully grown. 

Both Sissy and Rocco are looking for their forever homes. Until then, they happily enjoy each single day together, helping each other flourish and being a super duper couple.

 Nighty night, y'all!
