Rocco's Info...

Rocco's Story...
Rocco was adopted by a family that wanted a puppy. They had just given an old dog away to replace him with a puppy and when they got Rocco, they decided that they didn't want him either because dogs actually need some attention and that wasn't something that this family was prepared to give him.

For the entire year of his life, he has lived in an apartment, left alone the entire day and not ever taken outside. He has lived with small children and is great with kids. He also gets along with other dogs. Despite the lack of attention and love that he was given, he is extremely loving and loves people.

This dog is currently living in Northern California but if you are interested in him, I will be happy to transport him back to Southern California for you. I am from Northern California and so I visit often.

I would ideally like to have a family that will be loving and patient with this wonderful pup. He isn't really used to any sort of structure but will happily learn it and he will be thrilled to actually get to see what the outdoors looks like!

He's the type of dog that will want to sleep in your bed or near your bed.

If you are interested in him, please e-mail Kristy at

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in San Jose 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 San Jose 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 Chihuahua breeders who help with Chihuahua rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in San Jose paves the way for another one to be saved.
