Be sure to read my FULL BIO all the way down to my vetting and how to apply. Not all sites will show the full bio, so if needed please go to www.rockersrescue.org and click on adoptable pets to be sure you are reading all details. The animals have multiple pictures and usually a video to view. We are located around Shreveport, Louisiana and generally meet at PetSmart Shreveport, or Hollywood Feed Shreveport. For dogs we also may meet at the adopters home.
Roe - Female. Under 1 yr old. Est Birthday Dec 20, 2022. Roe is currently around 41lbs.
Breed: Roe's main breed is Australian Shepherd! Aussies come in a black/tan version. Roe's "Aussie" in her DNA greatly shows through her shape, thick back and tail fur, and her herding like play. She is very soft! She looks like a rottweiler to everyone.
History: We pulled Roe from Caddo Parish Animal Control. She was just a little puppy that had been found on the street. She is a healthy and beautiful girl now!
Personality: Roe is in a foster home with a 11yr old child and she is always excited to see her human friends. Very playful and loves people. Well behaved at public events. Kindly independent in the home (busy playing) but will also follow you room to room. Loves to sleep in bed with you. She is sweet and goofy!
Roe loves: Playing with toys. Nylabone chews. Getting ice cubes to eat. Sleeping in bed. Loves playing with other dogs. Lounging on the floor or couch. Loves to be with her people. If she's not napping, she's playing or chewing on a chew toy. Is in a foster household with small to large dogs and cats. Does good with all.
Roe is kenneled when the humans aren't home. She has been letting us know when she wants to go outside by scratching at the door. She knows "SIT". She is pretty good at practicing "LAY DOWN" as well. She does the excited puppy jumping dance so it's important to keep up the "sit" routine for petting. She has been learning to go to "Kennel room" and gets a treat at times when going.
Roe's fur is too thick for her to be outdoors for long periods of time. She can overheat easily. She needs to go outside to potty or play and then back in when she's ready. This also means her new home needs a fenced yard. She needs to be able to run and play to let her energy out.
Vetting: Utd on all vaccinations. Monthly simparica trio for heartworm prevention. Same treats monthly for flea/tick prevention. All vaccinations. Negative fecal. Spayed. Microchipped with lifetime registry the rescue has already paid for.
We do take our animals back if it does not work out. We also have a foster with potential to adopt program available for approved apps if anyone would like to go that route. We can't wait to find Roe's future family that will love her as we do.
About Applying to Adopt: Should you meet and decide to adopt, there is an $80 adoption donation for approved applications. Our rescue spends a lot more than this fee on each life, but it is a way to help give back some to go towards the next life we help. We are a 501c3 non profit that is 100% volunteer run. We function solely on donations from kind people. If you wish to donate more or continue following/supporting us over time, we would appreciate your continued love to help our organization save lives.
Adoption Process Summary: You apply. We will email or call if we have any questions. Upon app approval, we would schedule a day we all meet at PetSmart Shreveport or Hollywood Feed Shreveport or at your home. At that meet we would all make sure that you feel the pet is a good match for your home. If so, we run the adoption. You fill out our contract, pay your donation fee, and receive your folder with their medical records. It helps to bring a leash to this appointment because your pet will go home with you that day if we all feel it is a great match. Woohoo! We take your adoption picture and you head off with your new furry friend! We can often provide adoption coupons too.
