Facts about Rocky

  • Breed: Chihuahua
  • Color: Black
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: M2013053
Rocky has had a hard start to life. He was given up when his family became homeless after Hurricane Sandy. Then he thought his luck changed when he went to a new home. One chilly winter day, Rocky went out to play. When he didn’t return 20 minutes later, his owner went into the yard to look for him. Rocky was found lying on the ground, unable to move and in shock. It was clear that he was paralyzed.

Rocky’s owners were unable to make the financial commitment to his care, so they decided that the best course of action was to bring him back to Bobbi and the Strays. He was carried in, in a laundry basket because his owners were afraid of injuring him even more. Rocky was immediately vetted and placed in a loving foster home. He is flourishing with the ongoing vet care and love he is receiving.

Rocky is a sweet, special needs dog who requires the love and patience of an owner who is willing to take on the commitment of guiding him through his road to recovery. Rocky continues to require assistance toileting as well as physical therapy exercises performed every day.

About Bobbi and the Strays

About Our Rescue Group...

Bobbi and the Strays is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt animal welfare organization, and a no-kill agency.

We rescue stray dogs and cats from harmful situations ranging from abuse and neglect to imminent euthanasia. All animals are examined and treated by a veterinarian and updated with vaccinations, spayed/neutered, and will undergo healthcare or rehabilitation as necessary. We then find permanent, loving homes for these animals who may never have known kindness. We also provide educational programs to schools and the community, educating children and adults on responsible pet ownership. We also have Spay-Neuter/Release programs, organizing monthly spay/neuter services around the community with the ASPCA van.

We have dedicated volunteers who help rescue, foster, and care for the animals, as well as helping out at adoption days.

Donations are always needed to continue our work, and we rely on the support of those who share our vision of a world where animals are treated humanely, given loving homes, and where organizations such as ours are a thing of the past. We believe in our dream.

Our Adoption Process...

We require all potential adopters to complete an adoption form. We will make arrangements to meet with you, inspect the home where the animal will live, and, once approved, you'll be able to take home your new family member. Fees will be discussed with potential adopters.

We also require that adopters keep us updated on the well being of their pets and, if for any reason they are no longer able to keep the animal, they MUST call us to return the animal to us. We will pick up if necessary.
