Meet Rocco! What a handsome, loving boy! And he is definitely a mutt - heavy emphasis on the MIX in the breed description. He is a neutered male, 10-month-old SWEETHEART who was abandoned in an empty house when his owners moved and left him behind. Rocco is just a big baby and a true ambassador of the breed. He is shy around other dogs, but very submissive. He seems fine with cats. Rocco's favorite thing in the whole wide world is people. He absolutely LOVES being around people. He loves to go for walks and car rides. Rocco is smart and already housetrained. He loves being petted and scratched and play, play, play! Toys are great, people are great - Rocco is just a happy dog in need of a loving home. He only weighs 29 lbs. He passed his temperament test with flying colors. Everyone at the Rescue absolutely loves him! Rocco has had a veterinary physical exam, heartworm test, fecal exam, da2ppl vacccine, bordetella vaccine , rabies, strongid dewormer, frontline/topspot, heartworm prevention and neuter surgery. Give Rocco the home of his dreams. Adoption fee: $75.

Adoption Process:
Send an email to to tell us which pet you're interested in and we'll send you a questionnaire that will help us make the best match for you and your new pet. We then arrange a location, date and time for you to meet some pets. If the meeting goes well and everyone is happy, you begin the two-week trial run with the pet as part of your family. This is a trial period to give your dog or cat time to adjust to their new home, new people, new routine, etc., and for you to decide if it's a match and the right pet for you. At the end of two weeks (some people extend the trial time and that's fine too), if everyone is happy, then we finalize the adoption.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rocco, a Troy Pit Bull Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Pit Bull Terrier for sale in Troy, or seeking a Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Troy.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Troy already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Troy breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Pit Bull Terrier breeders who help with Pit Bull Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Troy paves the way for another one to be saved.
