Rocky (foster)'s Story...
Hi I’m Rocky and a champion kind of a guy! Just like my film counterpart, I too have a rags to riches story. Family Dogs saved me from a high-kill shelter in California. When I first came to Portland I was a bit nervous. Everything was just so new. But now, thanks to the loving care of my foster mom, I’m so happy, I’m just silly sometimes. I have even learned some cool tricks such as sit, stay, lay down, come, shake, roll over and can even catch treats off my nose (sometimes I get real excited though and miss). I also love walks and am pretty good on a leash, but because I'm still learning not to pull I do better with a harness. I'm house-trained and can be in a crate, but really don’t need it. I like to sleep on the couch most of the day while my foster mom’s at work.
My favorite thing though is being around my people! I like children, but do seem to be at my best with teenagers or adults. Sometimes the younger rambunctious kids confuse me. I haven’t had a chance to play in a pack yet, but I have had one on one sleepovers and play dates with some female dog friends and that was really fun! Just like the other Rocky, I’m kindhearted, loyal and want to find forever happiness with a family who loves me!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rocky (foster), a Portland Boxer/Pit Bull Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Boxer/Pit Bull Terrier for sale in Portland, or seeking a Boxer/Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Portland.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Portland 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 Portland 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 Boxer/Pit Bull Terrier breeders who help with Boxer/Pit Bull Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Portland paves the way for another one to be saved.
