Rocco's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, and not good with kids.

Rocco's Story...
Rocco is an adorable 10 lb, 5 yr old terrier/silky terrier mix. He is housetrained and crate trained, and loves to cuddle with his beloved humans (and yes, he quite enjoys being a lap dog, thank you very much!). He is great with other dogs who are easy going and playful, and loves to be around gentle, well-behaved children. We think at some point Rocco may have been treated unkindly by a man, as he is a little more cautious and slow to warm up to strangers, but given space and the understanding that he will warm up once he feels safe, Rocco is nothing short of the life of the party! He absolutely adores car rides and going on adventures with his foster family. He does need basic leash training 101 as he likes to bark and lunge at other animals, cars, bicycles, and he is not into heeling. He is fine with people up close. In short, Rocco is just another beautiful diamond in the rough who only needs you to give him leadership, stability and as much love as you can handle! (PS - He looks magnificent in a bow-tie!)

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rocco, a Encino Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/Silky Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/Silky Terrier for sale in Encino, or seeking a Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/Silky Terrier dog from a breeder in Encino.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Encino already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Encino breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/Silky Terrier breeders who help with Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/Silky Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Encino paves the way for another one to be saved.
