Xena's Story...

This dog's fosterhome is located in: ****Mastic Beach, New York****  Xena was abandoned with her siblings at a rural, high-kill shelter in the South that had no formal adoption program.  ResQ was notified and stepped in to rescue the sweet pups and give them a chance at life.  Our volunteers sent the pups to the Northeast for fostering and to find furever homes, and Xena wound up on Long Island, New York.  Xena is approximately 12 weeks old and is just the sweetest thing!  She is a chocolate/lemon tri-color with a striking pattern on her face.  It's like she's wearing a mask!  And that’s how she got the name “Xena,” (the Princess Warrior)  although she doesn’t have an aggressive bone in her body.  She gets along well with all of her foster siblings, and may only be 5 pounds, but she can handle the brute of the bunch in her foster home!  Everyone who meets her falls in love immediately.  She loves to play, as any puppy, but melts into your arms as soon as you hold her.  She has learned to sit for a treat and is working very had on housetraining.  She will sleep in her crate all night long, and willingly go into the crate for feeding time and nap time, but if she's not tired, will complain for a few minutes before settling into the crate.  When fully grown, Xena should be about 12-15 lbs.  She is a type A Rat Terrier, with long legs and slender build.  If you are looking to open your heart and home to a puppy, please consider sweet Xena, a lot of love in a little package!  Xena will be available in just a few short weeks so get your application in so she can go home as soon as she is ready!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Xena, a Arkadelphia 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 Arkadelphia, or seeking a Rat Terrier puppy from a breeder in Arkadelphia.

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