Introducing Rocky!

Hi There! My name is Rocky and I am a young, 1 year old Chiweenie - that's a Dachshund/Chihuahua mix if you don't you know! I weigh 9lbs, but can fill a room with my happy presence! I am MUCH more Chihuahua than anything with my personality, but MUCH more Dachshund in my appearance!

When I meet people, I need a few minutes to get to know you (and will willingly accept your treats!), then I am all about kisses, cuddles, as well as scritches and scratches. Underneath it all, I am a snuggle machine through and through! Going for walks is super fun - I get to stretch my legs and use my sniffer to explore the outside world. I love to play with other small dogs and would absolutely enjoy sharing my home with a similarly sized fun loving, playful canine sibling. I very much enjoy going on group walks with the other small dogs at the shelter as well as playtime with them! An adult home without young children would be best for me (older teenagers could be a good fit for me as well).

For more information about how to make me your next 4-legged family member, please contact Tracey at
