Rocky has been adopted! -- Please look at our other Rat Terriers awaiting homes!


This is Rocky, and like his movie namesake, he's a survivor. He was found by animal control, underweight and living on the streets. When taken in by ResQ, he was under 18 lbs (he should be 24), but is gaining steadily on a good diet. Rocky is a standard size Rat Terrier at 16' tall. He is housetrained and crate trained, and likes riding in the car. He is friendly and curious about everyone he meets, and also likes dogs and gets along with cats. At 2 years old, he's playful and energetic. Since he sometimes forgets his manners and jumps on people, he might be too much for very young children to handle, but older children will enjoy his exuberance. He is learning basic commands, and always wants to please. Rocky's favorite activity is to walk, walk, walk! He's never too tired to be on the go, but also loves to snuggle and be petted. There's a lot of love in this little package! For more pictures of Rocky, click here.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rocky, a Bay Area Rat Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Rat Terrier for sale in Bay Area, or seeking a Rat Terrier dog from a breeder in Bay Area.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Bay Area 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 Bay Area 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 Rat Terrier breeders who help with Rat Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Bay Area paves the way for another one to be saved.
