Rocky's Story...
Hi there. My name is Rocky, and while I might look a little stiff in my fancy tie, I was told to dress up a little for my adoption photo, and I’m actually a lot of fun. I am not all that big (4 lbs), and not all that old (2 years; I know the tie makes me look a little older…) but very loveable and looking for a permanent home. I love to snuggle in laps, but also like to play with other dogs my size. While I don’t spend much time around kids right now, I think they’d like me and I’d like them (as long as they are sort of gentle with me). If you have room in your heart and your home for me (and if you have any other fancy ties or hats in your closet), I might be the perfect guy for you.

Please see our other available dogs at A Leg Up Rescue such as Dewey or Owen. A Leg Up Rescue must charge an adoption fee which is $200.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in petaluma 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 petaluma 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 petaluma paves the way for another one to be saved.
