For eight months, Rocco hoped that Jack would return. His mom, Romi, toldThe Dodo:

I can't explain how much Rocco cried and missed him for all those months. But he always believed that Jack would reappear.

Despite his certainty, his beloved dog hasn't turned up despite the months of waiting and searching.

Tens of thousands of dogs and cats end up in shelters each year, either due to neglect, abuse or abandonment. Consider adopting before you shop, and visit your local shelters before going to a breeder. Every dog and cat deserves a fair chance at a forever home.If you live in England, you can visit the RSPCA, and if you live in the United States, you can visit the ASPCA to get more information about pets available for adoption.
