Maxwell's Story...
Maxwell was living with a man who was a horder and the poor little guy was attacked by a pitbull. He was never medically treated so the wounds healed by themselves leaving some scarring. He has never walked on a leash and was kept in a bathroom with a pee pad so he has no potty training but is learning to use the doggy door at his foster home. Just 4 months old and weighing 9lbs, this little guy is young enough to lose all his past fear and become a wonderful, loving dog. Max is a climber, he can easily climb over a doggie gate and he is very strong. He loves to cuddle and be with his person, something he was never able to do before. He needs to learn to be a little less dependent on people and he is learning to be a dog from the other dogs in his foster home. Max is a very energetic rat terrier and he loves to play with other dogs so he would do best in a home with another friend where he can play and learn. He is terrified of big dogs because of his attack so another small playful pup would be a wonderful companion. Maxwell has had a very rough start in life- can you show him love and patience and help him become the great dog we know he can be?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Maxwell, a Encino Rat Terrier puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Rat Terrier for sale in Encino, or seeking a Rat Terrier puppy from a breeder in Encino.

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