Rocco was a 14 year old Husky mix, who was rescued by the actors Jada Pinkett Smith and her husband Will Smith.
While on a hike with his dog walker, Rocco was bit three times in the neck when he encountered a rattlesnake in the brush near the family's Malibu ranch. He was hospitalized for over two weeks and given blood transfusions. He seemed to have recovered. After the incident, Jada wanted to make sure Rocco and her other dogs would stay away if they ever encountered another rattler so she asked Cesar Millan for help. Rocco was featured on the show The Dog Whisperer, where they showed how successful snake aversion is for dogs, it teaches dogs to leave snakes alone if ever in contact with one. Sadly, Rocco's body weakened by the bite of the snake, succumbed. He died after his daily walk, upon returning home. He was loved and sorely missed.
