We just added a new location for St. Louis Adopters!

PetSmart at 141 and Manchester Road in Manchester and PetSmart in Chesterfield Valley, we will be there every Saturday and Sunday from 11:00 to 4:30.

If this dog is one for you, go to our website - Takeafriendhome.org. click on the link to the application and this pup will be there waiting for you. An application does not obligate you to adopt, just to come and meet the pup that is waiting for you or give us a call to let us know that you have had a change of plans.

Little pups and very cute... these babies are a bit chunky for Rat Terriers but they are so small that I don't know of any other breed that can be in them. At 3 months, Dean and Debbie weigh 5 pounds. Dawson is just 3 pounds. The pups will likely be 10 -12 pounds when they are fully grown.

These pups and all of our dogs have been altered. Vaccines are current to date but he will need on-going vaccines until he is 16 weeks of age. Then, they will be old enough for their Rabies Vaccine. The pups have been micro-chipped. We heartworm test dogs over 6 months.

Housetrained? That depends on you. Even when a dog does very well in their original home, you will have to teach them a new routine. With a fenced yard, a crate, and an appropriate schedule for you pup's age, your pup will quickly learn the right routine. For your dog to be successful: use a crate, go out with your dog, praise “right action”, and expect more of yourself than you do of your dog. Housetraining tips are in your adoption packet.

Adoption Fees: We take cash (and we love it) credit cards and checks. As with all of our adoptions, we know it is hard to get married on a blind date... even to a wonderful pup. We will take our dog back give a full refund in the first week. After 7 days, we will take your puppy back and you can consider your adoption fee a tax deductible donation to a very appreciative organization. To hold a pup longer that the earliest possible delivery date, we ask for a $50 non-refundable deposit.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dawson Terrier, a St. Louis 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 St. Louis, or seeking a Rat Terrier puppy from a breeder in St. Louis.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in St. Louis 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 St. Louis 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 St. Louis paves the way for another one to be saved.
