I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Nacho is a typical shar pei, whose trust will have to be earned. He does not do well under pressure (crowded situations where people will be very inclined to want to pet him) but he is an obedience superstar!! He is muzzle conditioned, e-collar trained, off leash trained and crate trained! He is looking for a home without children where someone will put his mind to work and teach him new tricks. He has been boarded with one of the top trainers in the Ottawa area, who has nothing but great things to say about this young guy. Are you the home that nacho needs for the rest of his life? He is a young guy, only 1 year old, who can keep up with the best of them! If interested, contact www.rockyroadrescue.ca and fill out an application. Preference will be given to homes with Shar pei experience.
Our goals are to rescue dogs from high kill shelters, northern dogs and compassionate owner surrenders with the medical care they deserve and to find them the best loving forever homes. We are also committed to educating the public on positive pet ownership and to give back to the community through assisting families in need whenever possible.
Rocky Road Rescue is a volunteer-based organization which is 100% foster based. As a result of our dedicated foster families, all of our dogs live in a family environment. We raise funds through events and fundraisers. One hundred percent of these funds go towards the purchase of food, vetting costs, shelter pull fees and other costs associated with the general operation of the rescue.
Come Meet Our Pets...
We hold adoption events at pet stores in the Ottawa area regularly.
Our Adoption Process...
Our adoption fee is $400 for Adult dogs, and $500 for puppies. This includes all age appropriate vaccines at the time of adoption, as well as spay or neuter when it is appropriate for the age (even after adoption in the case of puppies). We do require references and an application to be filled out for each adoption. We do not work on "payment plans".
