Rocky's Story...
This is Rocky...we think he is a dachshund/shepherd mix! This little guy has an amazing story to tell! He is a true survivor and is very lucky to be alive. Poor rocky had been a stray trying to survive and had fallen onto a rock ledge on a hillside and could not get off. He was stuck on this ledge for 8 days crying for help. A concerned couple kept hearing him and tried contacting the police, fire dept, search and rescue, and other organizations for help. Finally, on his 9th day of being stuck no the ledge with no food or water, the wonderful Van Lear KY Volunteer fire dept offered to come and check out the situation....and luckily, he was found in the nick of time. This poor guy could have easily died a horrible death of starvation or dehydration, but he kept his hopes up that someone would hear his cries for help and save him. Now, he is hoping his will to survive will not be in vain, and their will be a wonderful family out there who will provide him a loving home! Rocky is frightened of new people, but is learning to trust and in time, is going to make a wonderful companion! This boy fought to survive and please make his fight worth while and give him the love and kindness he has never known. He is only about 25 lbs and is less than a yr old. He is also working on housetraining and doing wonderfully! Rocky gets along well with his foster brothers and sisters and has been playing and finally getting to enjoy his life.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rocky, a Foster Dachshund/Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Dachshund/Shepherd (Unknown Type) for sale in Foster, or seeking a Dachshund/Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog from a breeder in Foster.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Foster 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 Foster 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 Dachshund/Shepherd (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Dachshund/Shepherd (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Foster paves the way for another one to be saved.
