Miami shelter’s longest resident, Rocco, has been there four years! Will 2016 be his year?

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

Four years ago, this adorable Pitbull mix was abandoned and dropped off at the Humane Society of Greater Miami. He holds the record for HSGM's longest resident, a title the employees are hoping he'll lose with the new year.

Rocco is an eight-year-old Pitbull mix. As you'll see in the video above, he's extremely sweet, gentle and easy-going. One of the challenges in getting him adopted from this Miami shelter is that Pitbulls are illegal in Miami-Dade County. Rocco is also looking for a home without other dogs, but he's great with people, he even does well with cats!

Because we're all hoping that 2016 is his year, Thats-a-Wrap Sandwich Co. in Fort Lauderdale has offered to cover the cost of Rocco's adoption! All you have to do is head to Humane Society of Greater Miami and adopt him!

The shelter is located at 16101 W Dixie Hwy, North Miami Beach, FL 33160, and check out some of the other animals also up for adoption there!
