Meet Rocky

Rocky is a 1.5 year old male Border Collie mix who weighs in at 52 pounds.  This dog's adoption fee is $500.  If you are still interested, please read more below.

Meet Rocky!  He is a handsome high energy Border Collie mix.  Rocky is a sweet and very playful dog.  He loves going on walks and runs with his foster family, playing with toys, and snuggling on the couch.  Rocky would do best in a house with a fenced in yard so he has space to run and play, or with a family who can take him on frequent walks.  He is good with kids but may do best in a home with slightly older kids (grade school age) due to his size and energy level.  Rocky shows interest in the foster family’s cat but seems to know not to bother the cat.  Although he is high energy he also loves to lay on the couch or in the grass chewing on a stick.  He doesn’t jump on people and rarely barks.  He will make a great family dog!

Rocky is microchipped, up to date on all vaccinations, housebroken, and neutered.  This dog's family will be required to complete a basic obedience course of their choosing.  A meeting will not be scheduled until you have an approved application, so if you are interested in adopting this dog, fill out an Online Application today!  Once your application has been approved, an ARF volunteer will contact you to arrange a meeting.

Rocky is still available for adoption but might have other applicants. Learn more about our pet adoption process.

All pets adopted from A.R.F.-Animal Rescue Foundation include the following as part of their adoption fee:

  • Spay/neuter or a certificate for a low-cost spay/neuter when medically recommended
  • Microchip and registration, a permanent identification to reunite lost pets with their owners
  • Initial de-worming and flea and tick treatment
  • Age-appropriate testing for heartworm/FIV-FELV
  • Age-appropriate vaccines
  • Pre-adoption medical exam
  • A certificate for a free healthy pet exam at one of A.R.F.’s participating veterinarians within 7 days of adoption
  • Offer for a no-risk 30 day free trial with Trupanion pet medical insurance

If a cat or dog is on our website, it is still available for adoption but might have other applicants. If you find yourself interested in one of our animals, submit a no-commitment application immediately. Submitting an application does not commit you to any animal, but does get you a head start with the adoption approval process. Due to a high volume of applications, we are often unable to respond to questions until your application has been approved in approximately 3-5 business days.

We do not schedule meetings until you have an approved application.

A.R.F.-Animal Rescue Foundation does not have a facility where applicants can visit our animals.  The majority of our dogs and cats are brought to adoption events by our volunteers. We invite everyone to come to our events, but we give priority to pre-approved applicants.

If you’re invited to meet an animal:

  • Plan to arrive on time (or early), as we cannot hold animals for any reason.
  • All human household members and dogs (if adopting another dog), must be present in order to be considered as a potential adopter.

Thank you for your interest and cooperation!
