ROCKO's Story...
Rocko is not only extremely handsome, but he's an extraordinary special dog. He was turned into the shelter on 9/7/16 by his previous owner. He was so completely terrified it took volunteers 3 days to get him out of the kennel. It took a lot of coaxing, but once he felt safe even to give one special volunteer a chance he just absolutely melted into her. He is just the sweetest guy you could ever met! He's just scared and needs reassurance and most importantly he needs LOVE. Rocko is about 3 years old and weighs 51 lbs. He will sit and stay when asked and is just salt of the earth! He is reported to be GOOD WITH KIDS and HOUSEBROKEN. So to sum up, he's pretty perfect and needs to get out of the scary shelter soon! He is current on his vaccines and upon adoption will be neutered, heartworm tested and micro chipped. Rocko's ID # is 588756 and can be found in cage 80. Come meet him today!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

ROCKO, a Marietta Pit Bull Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Pit Bull Terrier for sale in Marietta, or seeking a Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Marietta.

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