Alvin's Story...

This dog's fosterhome is located in: ****Mastic Beach, New York**** Alvin is a such a handsome boy!  At less than a year old, he’s near fully grown at approx. 14” tall from floor to shoulder and about 14 pounds, and has a full tail. He is a classic tri-color with a dashing white blaze.  He also has plenty of the famous rat terrier ticking!  He’s fully crate trained, quickly learning house manners, and sleeps in the crate with his foster sister without a peep all night.  At nap time, he will snuggle into the crate next to his foster sister, Alice, or if he can find a patch of lap, will cuddle up beside you.  He seems very content to lay in your lap watching TV, and will soon nod off.  Alvin was brought to a shelter in Arkansas as a stray back in August and touched more than a few hearts to make it to his far-away New York foster home in November.  Always friendly and loving, he is adjusting well to his new home and many furry and human family members.  Alvin is playful and loves to burn energy with squirrel chases in the back yard with his furry siblings.  He is very much enjoying his freedom to roam a bit and learning that he is loved and a part of a family again.  With his human family, squeaky and stuffed toys mean lots of fun! He’s smart and quickly learning that slippers are NOT toys and that his toys that are kept in a basket.  Alvin tends to take them outside to play, but hasn't learned to collect them yet.  Alvin is good with his fostermom's 11 year-old son and 4 year-old niece so he’s good with children and other dogs, and can be “cat scanned” upon request.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Alvin, a Aberdeen 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 Aberdeen, or seeking a Rat Terrier dog from a breeder in Aberdeen.

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