This news stunned not only Rocco, but the shelter staff as well. The German Shepherd was heartbroken; the dog would cower down and look around fearfully. His eyes seemed to be filled with tears... Rocco could not understand what he had done wrong.

One of the visitors at the shelter shot him exactly like this, and the video immediately went viral. Users found out about Rocco and started looking for a home for the dog. Petie Pillaypackam also watched the video. The woman already had pets, so she immediately realized that Rocco did not belong to a shelter.

Petie decided to foster the dog until she could find a real home for him. After becoming a foster mom for Rocco, she started an Instagram account where she posted a day-to-day report on Rocco's life.

At first the dog was very shy and didn't eat much, but over time he started to open up, look less frightened, and even made friends with the other Pillaypackam's pets.

Petie hopes that Rocco will find a permanent home soon, but in the meantime, the dog is getting used to Petie's family.
