Barkley's Story...
"Hello, everybody. My name is BARKLEY, and I'm a one-year-old terrier mix who will melt your heart. I'm a very special boy with a sensitive soul, and I love to snuggle. My owner had to give me up when there was an illness in the family, and she could no longer care for me. I've started to get more comfortable here at the shelter, so my playful side is starting to come out, but I'm still pretty mellow. I'd love to be adopted by a kind and loving person who understands that I need a little extra time to get used to new situations. I know you'll find that I'm worth it! I'd be a wonderful family pet, and I like to be around other nice dogs. I'm almost house trained, but I'll need a little extra positive training when I get to my new home. I've been trained to sleep in a crate at night and when you leave the house, but I'd love to snuggle with you in bed, if you like. Won't you please come visit me here at the El Cajon Animal Shelter? They have a lovely play yard where we can spend some time getting to know each other. Maybe I can sit in your lap and you can feel my soft fur. When you hold me close, you won't want to let me go. I hope to see you soon! Love, Barkley" Kennel #30

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Barkley, a El Cajon Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) for sale in El Cajon, or seeking a Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) dog from a breeder in El Cajon.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in El Cajon 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 El Cajon 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 Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) breeders who help with Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in El Cajon paves the way for another one to be saved.
