Mimsy's Story...

This dog's fosterhome is located in: ****Portland, Tennessee**** Say hello to Mimsy.  She has had a rough life - living outdoors with no proper shelter, puppies freezing to death and lastly, heartworm treatment.  Despite all of this, she is a happy, bouncy and lovable little 2 year-old girl.  She is always wanting to play and tries her best to get the other older ratties in her foster home to play with her - therefore she would be happy with another playful pup as her companion.  When playtime is over, it’s up in her foster mom's lap for snuggling.  She is 14 inches at the shoulder and weighs 16 pounds, so she's perfectly-sized for a lap dog... She loves to play with her stuffies (stuffed animals) and chew on her nylabones.  She is a bit of a thief - she delights in stealing the socks out of your hands as you TRY to put them on your feet.  She dances on her back legs, swishes her tail from side to side and waves her front paws in the air when her foster mom comes in from work.  She is a bit timid about going outside alone to do her business and is happiest when the other ratties (or mom) go out with her.  She has had only 2 accidents since being with her current foster mom - she will go potty when outside but hasn’t learned how to let you know when she needs to go outside.  If kept on a regular schedule, she would do fine with housebreaking.  She has been cat scanned and showed only an interest to play.  Mimsy may be a bit 'bouncy' for a small child but just perfect for 6 or 7 years old and above.  She is not hyper, just loves to play.  She would ideal for a lively house with kids and other pups as companions.  For photos and videos of Mimsy, click here:

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Mimsy, a Garland 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 Garland, or seeking a Rat Terrier dog from a breeder in Garland.

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