Bentley is a fun, loving, energetic boy looking for his new best friend(s) and family!

Little boy Bentley. Where to start...

Bentley was found as a matted stray. His temperament is so amazing and puppy-like, so someone just wasn't taking care of him properly. His mats were so bad he has wounds on his bottom. We had to shave away most of his beautiful hair as it was far too matted to be salvaged. He doesn't have the cute look he used to but it will grow back. (His before and after pictures will be available.)

Firstly, Bentley has a lot of energy! Not going to say it any other way. He LOVES to play with other dogs. So much so that some dogs get annoyed haha. We need to find him a best friend. He is young, maybe 3 or younger. His playing can be a little rough for some so I suggest teaching him to be more gentle. He tries to play with the cat too, haha. 

Bentley gets attached to his "people." I was the person that first loved on him at the shelter so he knows me now. I held him in my arms and he just hugged me. My nickname for him is Huggy Bear. When we put him back in the kennel run he cried for us. After he came under the rescue he would whimper at an event if I left him. He wanted to go with me! He would calm down of course but it was so sweet to see his connection to me. Now he has this connection with his foster as well. He just loves his people!  As far as children go Bentley is great around kids BUT he may try to play too hard and nip a child on accident. I know he nipped me one day trying to play! haha. Not bad it was a pinch but for a child that's all it takes. I have a 4 year old myself so if Bentley were mine I'd be sure he had a play friend and monitor and teach him. 

When you leave your home Bentley will most likely whine. Like stated, he's like a puppy and will have to learn. We do require a yard for Bentley as he needs to be able to run and play with friends! He will of course require regular grooming. So far Bentley seems house trained. He needs to be let our regularly but of course each home is different and you will have to get your set schedule. 

Vetting: Bentley is neutered, dewormed, up to date on shots, heartworm negative, on heartworm and flea/.tick prevention, and microchipped under the rescue. At his initial weigh in he was around 16.4 lbs. Around 3 years old. His adoption fee is $100. It is of course required our animals be kept on monthly heartworm prevention! Please research heartworms if you do not know about them. We microchip our animals under our rescue and if they are ever found we will be contacted in order to get a hold of the owner. 

 Bentley is a fun, loving, energetic boy looking for his new best friend(s) and family!

About Rockers Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Rockers Rescue is a smaller organization. We were founded and became a 501c3 non profit in December of 2015. We are currently foster only with plans to have our own building set up down the road. Being foster only means we cannot help a dog in need without a home to temporarily watch the dog until it is adopted.
We fall in love with dogs that are in need. Dirty, scared. malnourished, mange, heartworms, embedded collars, elderly, etc. When we pull a dog under our rescue .... they are treated as if they are our own personal dogs. We get them fixed, microchipped, and up to date. We nurture them back to health and we get attached to them. We see lots of them evolve from scared and discarded little dogs to beautiful amazing ones. From a high kill shelter with no hope... to a lovely AMAZING pet.

Looking back at them from when we first got them..... and seeing them is worth every second. We want our adopters to have that same bond with them. We want them to know this isn't just a dog... its an amazing pet with a story. One that has been discarded but wants love. They DESERVE love.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We are a foster only rescue so we do not have a location for potential adopters to visit. We are newer and working on set adoption days around Shreveport, Louisiana. You may email us at to see if we have current adoption days or check our facebook page Rockers Rescue- Northwest La.

If we do not have a current adoption event we require people to first fill out our adoption application before we will schedule a meet. We are foster only so this saves us time having the potantial adopter pre-approved.

Our Adoption Process...

We require people interested in our dogs to fill out an adoption application through email. We will call to do vet/ landlord checks. It is important that our adopters have their own vet and are fully prepared mentally and financially for another pet. All of our animals are to remain on heartworm prevention. We prefer fenced back yards but dependent on the dog they may be able to handle a different lifestyle. It just depends.
If approved we will plan a meet to see how the dog does in your home environment and with your pets and family. If you are not local we will request pictures of where the pet would be staying. If you are not local it helps for us to know all about your animals and their temperaments etc.

The adoption fees may vary but they are around $100 with the animal being spayed or neutered, up to date on shots, on heartworm prevention, and microchipped.

With any of our dogs that have heartworms we do slow treatment. This is less harsh on the dog than full blown treatment. The dogs are able to maintain their normal lifestyle. With full blown treatment it is dangerous if they do not remain calm. They get 2 doxycycline pills twice a day for a month. Along with taking preventative. This kills the baby heartworms and prevents more from being born while weakening the adults until they die off. Our dogs going through slow treatment are very much adoptable but if they are still taking their month of pills they require a responsible owner to be sure they take them.

Some of our dogs may be getting shots weekly for non-contagious mange etc. If you are local to us you could bring the dog to our vet to continue their shots. If you aren't local we would have to work it out so that the dog could go to your vet to finish their treatment. We want the best for our dogs. If you are interested in adopting one that currently has more special care we can see what can be worked out. So long as our babies are safe, loved, and taken care of!
