Stella's Info...

I am already spayed, purebred, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Stella's Story...
Stella was transferred from a high kill shelter in Roswell, NM right before she was scheduled for euthanasia. Stella was immediately adopted from us but while in the care of her new family they noticed that she was urinating quite frequently, and as hard as it was for them, they had to return her. We immediately ran blood work to see if we could determine what was causing her issue and it was apparent that her liver is not functioning as they should. We have her on medication to help slow down the liver disease, but any adopter must be aware that she should take this pill daily for the rest of her life. While in foster care, it was noted that Stella did well with potty pads!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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