Barks of Love

Xochitl Collazo has been fostering for Barks of Love for an incredibly long time. Her most recent foster Rocco, a 4 year old Cocker Spaniel was rescued from Baldwin Park with slight cherry eye in both eyes. He had been adopted and returned so many times because nobody would give him a chance. We don’t know what happened in the past but we do know he can occasionally be aggressive which takes patience to overcome.

Unfortunately, he kept getting returned and thankfully because Xochitl realized how much Rocco meant to her. She didn’t want to see him go through the pain of being “discarded” again. Rocco’s forever home is now with Xochitl and their powerful bond of love and trust is evident when you spend even a moment with them.
