Morrocco's Story...
Orlando, FL
Rocco (Morrocco) is a 6 year old, sturdy little bundle of happiness. He is universally affectionate. A pat on the belly or a scratch behind the ear is all he needs to attach to a new human friend. Rocco likes praise and hugs and kisses almost as much as treats. He is not especially fond of exercise…. probably won’t fetch that ball for you, but he loves leisurely walks and snuggling on your lap, or wrapping himself in a blanket next to you. Rocco is protective of his home, but is very sociable on walks. He interacts very well with other dogs and is respectful of cats. Rocco has grown up in a household of adults. He are friendly and playful with children, but unaccustomed to living with them. Rocco is pretty good listener, too. He is housebroken, and an excellent mouser! His best friend is his brother Rito. You can see more photos herehere.

Note: This is a Guardian Assistance Placement (GAP) Program dog, meaning he/she has been fortunate enough to remain in his/her current home while looking for a new home. Veterinary records have been verified, but we must rely on input from the owner for information on behavior and temperament.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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