Dobby's Story...

This dog's fosterhome is located in: ****Arkadelphia, Arkansas**** Dobby is only 7 months old and weighs a little less than 7 pounds.  He is a type B rat terrier, with shorter legs.  According to the shelter, Dobby was kicked in the head, which badly damaged his right eye.  The wonderful shelter staff rushed him to a local vet, who removed the eye and took care of him until ResQ could be contacted.  Despite the abuse in his past, Dobby loves everyone.  He has a happy spirit, and is very affectionate.  He snuggles into your lap like he is soaking up kindness, and follows his foster mom around everywhere she goes.  Dobby doesn’t much like a crate, and he would rather snuggle into bed with you.  (He doesn’t take up much room, after all)  He is doing wonderfully with his house training, and is very smart!  There is no evidence that he was emotionally damaged by the abuse, and to prove it, his tail never stops wagging.  Dobby loves to smother you with kisses, if you will sit still long enough.  Our vets tell us that his surgery area will look much better in a few weeks, and he has absolutely no handicap from losing the eye.  His depth perception is fine, and he sprints up stairs like a big dog.  Losing an eye has not slowed this amazing pup down one bit.  For photos of Dobby in his foster home, check his album often for updates:

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dobby, a Memphis 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 Memphis, or seeking a Rat Terrier dog from a breeder in Memphis.

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