Dog of the Day: Rocco the Rococo the Pharaoh Hound/Pit Mix

I have a soft spot for gangly, awkward dogs with ridiculous ears. Okay, okay, I have a soft spot for most dogs, but you gotta admit, this guy is really something.

Rocco loves carrots. In this picture, he is being amazingly obedient. Because I have a carrot.

This is after he ate a carrot. You can almost see the thought bubble: Where there's one carrot, there may be two!

And this is him when he discovered that I was all out of carrots. Aww... poor pup!

      Then you, sir, have an awesome dog.

      Does he like carrots? You should find out, if you don’t know already, and then report back. FOR SCIENCE!

    I can’t believe this.

    We’ve had our Pit mix for two years now and struggled to figure out what his other half was. After seeing this I’m convinced he’s a pit/pharaoh hound mix.

    This looks just like my foster dog, Cleo (short for Cleopatra). She gets so many comments on her ears so I wanted to give her an Egyptian name since I swore she looked like a Pharoah Hound. She is also a Pit Mix–thanks for posting this! πŸ™‚

    Here is an updated picture of Rocco, being super-regal looking while waiting patiently at his “drive through window”. He’s still a good boy, but he is bummed out by all this rain we are having lately!

  9. Renee says:

    I have never been able to find out what my baby is! I’m super convinced now that she’s this mix! So happy I found this

    So cute! He and my sweet girl Dixie (Pharaoh Pit Mix) would be best friends 🀎

    • Adam Lang says:

      Really? Where’d you get her? That’s a really rare mix, since you see so few pharaohs around, and even fewer of breeding age who aren’t neutered.

      Any pictures of your pup online? If so, please share links!
