He does well with kids but can easily knock them down due to his size. Rocco loves people and is attention seeking. He will sit in your lap or nudge you for some loving. He is good in the house but does not do so well in his crate. He would do well in an active household with people who are strong leaders and are interested in putting him through basic training. Rosco loves attention from his people and to roll in the grass playing with his toys. Interested? Please email us at for a application.

About First Responders Animal ResQ

About Our Rescue Group...

A little about us…First Responders Animal ResQ came to fruition due to a need to help local dogs in our area.
We are located in the East Bay in Northern California and our mission is to make a difference for dogs in our community.
First Responders receives daily contact or requests regarding a dog(s) in need! Sometime it can be hard, because we simply can’t save every dog.
We are a 501(c)(3), which means we are a non profit organization. All of our time is volunteer based. In other words, we could not do what we do without your support.
We appreciate all donations, either financial, pet supplies, medicine or dog food.
Each of our dogs may come into our rescue in some sort of need. We spay/ neuter all our dogs, vaccinate, chip, provide medical and most of all, we love them.
We are a small entity, but we have a lot of heart. We nurture our dogs as well as the families, who are our potential adopters.
Our philosophy is provide all of our families and dogs with an environment conducive with as easy as a transition as possible.

We offer resources, solutions as well as support. We facilitate a successful adoption for both the adopter and our wonderful dogs.
Our belief, is every dog has a special person and every person has that special dog. Our goal is to help with that love connection! We are a professional match makers!💕
We would not be able to do a fraction of what we do with out our fosters!
We are always looking for fun, confident, social people who love dogs. We provide all of our fosters with supplies, resources and support in order for them to focus on loving our rescues!

Our Adoption Process...

$300 for dogs over 12 months and $350 under. If you are not a homeowner, we require land lord approval. We will have you fill out an adoption questionnaire, which will go over the basics, then we will conduct a phone or email interview along with a home visit, then you will be able to meet our lovely dogs and if it is love at first sight, the adoption paperwork can be signed and you can take your new family member home!
