Rocky's Story...
Hi, my name is Rocky. I got that name because I look like Rocky Road ice cream and I am just as sweet, too! A nice lady found me curled up on her patio and contacted Valley Dogs. No one has claimed me, so I am in need of a new, forever home. Might it be with you?

I currently live in a foster home with many other dogs and I do well with all of them. In fact, I would probably do best in a home with a canine friend. That way I have someone to play with and to keep me company when my humans can’t be with me.

I walk well on a lead, and am house broken. I know how to use a doggie door, and would love to have yard where I could run and play. (You should see me run - I'm like a rocket!) I would also do okay in an apartment or townhome as long as my new owner is dedicated to walking me every morning and evening, with potty breaks in between.

I can be a little insecure of people I don’t know until I understand they won’t hurt me. Once I bond with you, I will be your best friend and protector, alerting you to anyone who I don’t know coming around. I do okay with kids (again, once I know them), but would do best in a home with mature children who know how to properly handle a small dog and how to introduce me to their friends when they visit.

I have been kennel trained, but I really love to cuddle up next to my foster mom and sleep with her at night – especially now that it is getting colder. The good news is I don’t take up much room!

If I sound like the right fit for your family, please come and visit me.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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