Suzy's Story...

This dog's fosterhome is located in: ****Sunrise, Florida**** My name is Suzy and I am 6 years old. My foster mom saw a little something special in my eyes and saved me just in time from a high-kill shelter. I confess, I was a pleasantly plump little girl when I ended up in the shelter but I was placed on a healthy diet and I've shed the excess weight. You should see me now - I look and feel great!! I am now a lean 15 pounds and I'm 11 inches tall with beautiful erect ears and a cropped tail.  I am a little cautious when meeting new people, and I like to make the first move.  It always helps when you have a tasty treat for me, by the way.  Once I feel comfortable, I love to get rubbed and scratched and played with, and then rubbed some more.  I'm enjoying this big yard and the pool. I really enjoy playing around the pool, and my favorite game is when you throw my rubber ducky into the water and I fish it out.  I don't really like to jump into the water but I do enjoy playing around it. I am great around children, and, oh my, how I love them. I just love running with them, following them on their bikes and having them toss me a toy. I enjoy my foster mom and dad too, because they let me sleep in the room in my own doggie bed and they take me on car rides and on walks in the mountain bike trails. My foster mom says I'm a great little girl who will make a great addition to any home and family. I am completely housebroken and walk great on a leash. I love children and other dogs. I haven't been cat tested as my foster mom is allergic to them. I am not a yapper, I am very quiet. I do let out a bark or two when I hear someone at the door but I am quick to return to my bed and play with my toys. I promise to be your loving and loyal companion if you give me a chance - you won't regret it. Come and take a look at my photo album at:

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Suzy, 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.
