Scruffy's Story...
Scruffy is the name and loving my human is my game. Go figure...I landed in a shelter because I was wondering the streets looking for some kid companionship. I noticed these children gathered on the street corner. I meandered over there to see if a kid would take me home. Out of nowhere came this big yellow thing. I think they called it a bus. That thing gathered up all my new friends and this white truck picked me up and carried me to the shelter. I thought I had gotten lucky with some new humans when they came and got me from the shelter. Well dang, they stuck me in a garage far away from them. That is not what I had in mind for my new home. So, I guess I showed them when I tore up a few items and then they showed me when they dumped me back at the shelter. Here we go again: another family picked me out of the line up again. They had one dog and they gave us 24 hours to become friends. Here is the deal: I like some dogs, just not bossy ones. I see myself as a take charge guy and don't care to be around some bossy canine. My foster brother is a submissive pit bull. We are best of friends. I am fully vetted, neutered, house trained and a lover of all humans. I need a human that understands the kind of guy I am. I do love to play but I prefer human time to canine time. Please call my foster mom at 423-503-4234 if you would like for me to show off my cuteness and my intelligence. I forgot to mention, I am quite the brainiac! Very smart. I will be waiting!!!!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Scruffy, a Hixson Norwich Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Norwich Terrier for sale in Hixson, or seeking a Norwich Terrier dog from a breeder in Hixson.

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