Meet Rocco!

Dachshund (Miniature) 
Cheshire, North West

Say hello to Rocco, the fabulous mini dachshund dog model, and animal actor for hire. The Miniature Dachshund breed has never been so popular and Rocco makes it obvious why. One look at Rocco’s personal Instagram page tells you everything you need to know; he’s devilishly handsome, loves to wear pet clothing and accessories, and is utterly hilarious.

He is an excellent choice for briefs in the entertainment industry and his amusing facial expressions make him ideal. However, this versatile little chap is capable of starring in pet photography shoots that promote brands of any industry.

Due to his good nature and decent trick training, trick training makes him the ideal model for all briefs. This mini dachshund for hire is clever and confident and will happily be picked up and positioned as per the needs of the brief. In addition, this stunning sausage loves attention and will perform alongside any co-star, including children and other dog models.

He will respond to voice and hand signals and can sit still for hours on end without issue. Overall, Rocco travels all over and is happy to undertake briefs from all over the world! We recommend Rocco for a variety of briefs for stills and moving imagery.
