Facts about Rocky

  • Breed: Poodle (Miniature) Mix

  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
Rocky’s adoption fee is $275.

Rocky is a rock star! He is a really amazing little guy. Despite his adorable black eye and signature name, he is a lover not a fighter. He is 11 years of age, and is a Poodle mix that weighs approximately 4.7 kg (10 pounds). He is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, micro chipped and recently had a dental. He is non-shedding.

I am so surprised at how quiet he is. He will bark but as soon as you tell him to be quiet he settles down. Not only is he very, very smart - he wants to please. He scratches at the door when he wants to go out and waits patiently for you to answer his request. He is a bit nervous about trimming around his face and ears, but was very responsive to a patient persuasive clean up I gave him. I think a little trust building will go a long way to relieving his anxiety about being groomed. He likes to play and fetch a ball and skips like a little lamb when he is ready to romp. He gets along well with other gentle dogs and is ok around cats. This little fellow is looking for a calm and loving home for his golden years, and will make a loving and loyal companion.

About Tiny Paws Dog Rescue Canada

About Our Rescue Group...

Tiny Paws Dog Rescue was formed in February 2007 to assist small pure and mixed breed dogs (weighing 20 pounds and under) in need.

What We Do:

We work with shelters, pounds, other rescues, and private individuals to save dogs that might otherwise be euthanized and place those dogs into our private foster homes. We provide standard veterinary care and other needed medical treatment, work on training issues and through our adoption screening process, find new forever homes for the dogs in our care. We also educate the public about the important reasons to spay/neuter pets, the deplorable conditions found in puppy mills, the sources of pet store dogs and the need to adequately care for and train the family pet.

Why We Do What We Do:

Far too many perfectly healthy, wonderful dogs are euthanized every day because their owners do not know that dog rescues exist and can help. For any number of reasons, an owner may need to find their dog a new home. In addition, there are many dogs that end up in shelters because they have never been adequately trained, suffer from separation anxiety or from treatable health issues. Our reward is finding a loving new home for a dog in need.


We do not have a facility. All dogs in our care are placed in private homes and may be viewed during the scheduled home visit as part of the adoption process.

Our Fundraising Endeavours:

Our rescue participates in a number of pet related events, as well as holding our own fundraising events.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our pets are currently in private foster homes and are not available for viewing except through our website at We are all volunteers and we make every attempt to respond and assist everyone in a timely manner. Many of us also have full time jobs and families as well, we ask for your patience.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption fees are as follows:

0 -2 Years of Age - $375.00
3 -8 Years of Age - $350.00
9+ Years of Age - $250.00

All Adoption fees include spay/neuter, vaccinations and all necessary vetting. We only adopt within Canada. TPDRC places the Dog with no warranty as to the physical condition or temperament of the dog beyond the information provided to us by our veterinary doctors. The Adopter accepts the dog as is with all issues, either observable or unobservable, and assumes all risk for such dog from the date of signing the adoption contract. For more information on the adoption process, visit our website at

We ask that adopters email to request an adoption application if they see a dog they are interested in adopting. On the application we ask for a vet reference and two personal references. Once the references are checked and approved we contact the potential adopter to set up a home visit. Whenever possible we bring the dog they are interested in adopting along on the home visit.
