Teddy

  • Around 8 months old.

  • Intake date March 15, 2017 from Caddo Parish Animal Services. 
  • Big, playful boy! 

History: Teddy was at our local shelter which is a kill shelter. He was seized due to a fence issue with his owners. The owners never fixed the problem and came back for him. He looks a lot like our personal rottweiler when he was younger, therefore, we named him after ours. Teddy Bear. We have to call him Teddy #2 now that he is under the rescue so we don't confuse him with our own when speaking, haha! People helped raise some funds for Teddy so he could leave the shelter! A lot of people rooted him on. We all thought Teddy was heartworm positive and that was why he was rescue only BUT the day we went to break him free....it turned out Teddy was heartworm negative! 

Personality: Goofy typical rottie pup. Likes to play fetch! Will actually bring the ball back to you! (That's rare for me to find.) Rope toys? He will rip them apart but has fun doing it! I'm sure he would love a good chew bone, a comfy bed inside,  and a yard to romp around in! Did good with all dogs we've had him around. Young so he has energy and will need to be taught. We do like our dogs to be part of the family, if you plan to chunk him in your back yard just to gaze eyes on him here and there....he is not the dog for you. This dog has amazing potential if placed in the right home. The breed is very sweet and devoted. Teddy deserves to have a life of love.

Vetting: Neutered. Up to date on shots. Heartworm test which was negative. Put on trifexis for heartworm/ flea/ tick prevention (lasts 1 month from date given). Fecal done as he was so skinny but it was negative. Plenty of good food should fatten him up in no time. Microchipped under the rescue (see below).

About Microchip:  Our animals are microchipped under the rescue. By having the animals microchipped under us it provides us with a definite option of the animal being safe if found. If the pet ever goes missing you can let us know as well so we may help find them. If we ever are called on the animal being found we will try our best for 2 weeks to get in contact with the owners (as you should also be trying to get in contact with us) and if the owner is not found after 2 weeks the animal is legally ours again via our contract. This is a GREAT safety precaution for loving families. It means you will have an awesome caring team devoted to reuniting you with your baby. We ourselves have found microchipped dogs that have been rehomed and ended up in shelters on a euthanasia list. We take this very seriously as we never want that to happen to any of our animals. We also require first option of taking an animal back if the home does not work out. You can consider us a forever family for the pets adopted from us. 

Adoption:    Must have a vet reference when filling out one of our applications. Monthly h eartworm prevention is very important to us and your pet so adopters need to be financially prepared to cover that    expense. If you do not know about heartworms we would love to tell you about them. We all have to learn!        Any inquiries on adoption please feel free to message us. All information stated above is the the best of our knowledge for for as long as we have known this pet.

Adoption fee of $100. (this includes microchipping expense)

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 now...it 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 rockersrescue@gmail.com 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!
