Max's Story...
**Check back soon to see photos of Max.** Max is a brand-new addition to Tassie's Hope. This lovable, super-friendly, super-playful little guy is eager to make friends with everyone: human, canine and feline, alike. Since his birth, right around the first of the year, Max has spent a lot of time around children, and he loves kids! We would like to find a home for Max where there is another small, friendly, playful dog to pal around with, because this guy is serious about his play-time. (His current best buddy is Jaeger the Min-Pin, also listed on our website). Any children in the adoptive home would need to be very gentle with Max, because he is a tiny, delicate guy. When Max is not playing, he is all about the cuddle. He loves to be picked up and loved on. Max is currently about 6 lbs., but has a little bit more growing to do. Max is very smart and has the ability to learn a great deal. Max spent the first 5-1/2 months of his life with a family who loved him. He has never been subjected to abuse or neglect and his former family raved about what a good puppy he is. Unfortunately, Max's owners have a 3-year-old grandchild now living with them and she is terrified of all dogs. Probably a situation that could have been easily worked through (especially with a pup as friendly and sweet as Max) but the family made the decision to give him up. Now it's time to find Max his new forever home. Max is a very healthy boy. He is neutered, vaccinated, wormed and on monthly heartworm-preventative. He will also be micro-chipped prior to adoption. Max's $250 adoption fee helps offset the cost of his veterinary care. **Applicants for Max must have a verifiable history with a vet. A home visit will be required prior to adoption.** If you would like to make Max a permanent member of your family, please click on this link to complete our adoption application form today:

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Max, a Carrollton 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 Carrollton, or seeking a Rat Terrier puppy from a breeder in Carrollton.

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