Niko is the new guy on the block! More information will come once we get to know him more :)

He is a 4 year old Cattle dog/Blue Heeler mix, who is house and crate trained, as well as walks well on leash with a prong collar (will pull without one, so would need training). He has lived with and done great with other dogs, kids and even dog-savvy cats! He is looking for a home that can give him the mental and physical stimulation his breed needs.

About Rocky Road Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Our goals are to rescue dogs from high kill shelters, northern dogs, and compassionate owner surrenders, and provide them with the medical care they deserve, as well as 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 that 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, which allow us to continue to rescue dogs in need. 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".
