Hilarious 1 year old Terrier male!  Awesome buddy for another active dog, active family with older kids, a runner, hiker, camper, if you want to do it, he'll be ready to rock "n" roll!  Rocky is about 12lbs, typical terrier personality, feisty, funny and full of fun.    Crated at night, walks on a leash, best suited with someone(s) that understand and embrace the "terrier" personality. Would not recommend Rocky B. as a first time dog.  Rocky does have some barrier aggression when in a crate and when he feels threatened..  Adoption donation $250, includes his neuter, rabies, dhpp vaccine, bordatella vaccine, microchip, worming, frontline, heartworm test and heartgard.

Appointments are available most days, dogs are held for SAME-DAY appointments only.   Dogs are fostered in Vacaville, we do not transport or deliver dogs.  All potential adopters must travel to vacaville to meet and potentially adopt dog.  

Please email to make your appointment or if you have any questions.  :)

*Please be ready to adopt when making a appt., we do not hold dogs while you get ready/go on vacation etc.   Dogs remain available until they are adopted.  If you aren't ready to potentially take a dog home, please contact us when you are.  :)  This helps keep our available appointments /time productive.

We never say a dog is housebroken, a new routine, environment, food, all lends itself very well to having a accident in the home.  Please take any new dog regardless of age and act as if they are not housebroken.  

Barking/Digging:  Any dog can be or become a barker, or digger if the behavior is allowed and not corrected.  A dog can act one way in one home and a completely different way in another.  

Whining:  The first few days in a new home, a adopted dog can become VERY upset, anxious and vocal.  Every home they go into, there is a adjustment period that will need to be understood.  We suggest "test"runs when you leave the dog alone.  Make is short segments first and increase the time.  This way the dog knows you are always coming back.  Giving them  something to keep themselves occupied with while you are away will help.

BITING:  Please do not EVER put your face in a newly adopted dogs face or take food/toys our of their mouth.  This is the surest and fastest way to get bit.  Especially children.  

Adopting a dog takes time, patience and a commitment from his/hers new family, please be prepared for ALL the ups and downs when bringing home a wonderful dog in need.

About Field Of Dreams Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

The mission and vision for Field Of Dreams Rescue is to save dogs of all sizes and all breeds by placing them into loving, forever homes. We are an all-volunteer, foster home based, dog rescue organization based in northern California. We do not have a physical shelter. Instead, we operate primarily through our foster homes, online databases and at adoption events/expos.
The majority of our animals come from animal control groups where overcrowding and overpopulation lead to the euthanasia of millions of healthy, friendly pets every year.
We are committed to providing the dogs that come Field Of Dreams Rescue with the best possible care while they wait for their forever homes by acclimating them to life outside of a shelter and providing the appropriate veterinary care needed.
We also serve our community and adopters by educating and encouraging responsible pet ownership with an emphasis on the need for spaying and neutering.
Because our foster homes are the backbone of Field Of Dreams Rescue, and to help our organization run smoothly, it is our goal to provide the best experience possible. We encourage each foster home to be as involved as they are comfortable with and allow them the freedom to foster based on their needs, restrictions, or desires.

Come Meet Our Pets...

All dogs go into foster homes, appointments can be made daily to meet dogs.

Our Adoption Process...

Field Of Dreams Rescue typically charges adoption donations from $200 to $400 depending on the age and breed of the dog. This amount covers our cost for basic vet care for our healthy animals which includes spaying/neutering, age appropriate vaccinations, deworming, microchipping. Frequently, medical expenses for a single dog far exceeds the adoption donation. A few days of emergency care can easily run over $1000. Many of our volunteers contributed personal funds to help offset costs for our dogs, but every single dollar received from adoption donations goes directly to care for our animals. Any "extra" received goes towards those dogs that require more extensive medical care. When we are able, we bring in dogs that may have some minor or even major health concerns as these types of dogs are more at risk of euthanasia than healthy ones.
In general, adopting a dog is much more economical than "buying" a dog from a store or breeder. A "purchased" dog plus vaccinations, spay/neuter, microchip can easily exceed $2000 depending on the breed.
