Zeke!'s Story...



Zeke has been adopted! -- Please look at our other Rat Terriers awaiting homes!



**Zeke is located in Portland, Tennessee, and can be transported to the Northeast if a suitable home is found.

We find that GREAT dogs in foster care are often overlooked in the South, because of the excess of dogs in shelters there, and we will consider appropriate homes in the Northeast.

As is the case with all ResQ adoptions that are out-of-area, there will be transport costs that are the responsibility of the adopter, and we work with you to arrange the transport.

If you'd like to apply for Zeke or have more questions, please email us or submit an application!**





Meet Zeke, the wonder rattie! He's about 19' tall, weighs about 23 lbs, 1 year old and is house trained. Zeke does everything with gusto! He loves to play and play and play...Did I mention play?! He is a 'rough and tumble' type of guy so he's best playing with a dog his size or bigger. He is never without a toy in his mouth. His kisses will remove every ounce of makeup off a face - and he has a 'thing' about ears! He can be a bit enthusiastic about sharing his affection so he would need to be monitored around young children. He is a lover extraordinaire. He walks wonderfully on a leash and greets everyone he meets with a nubbie wag. He is even happier when they pet him. He rides well in a car and crates well at night (especially when sent to bed with a biscuit or two) but upon hearing people moving about the home, he'll start whining. We are currently working on manners like wait until called, humans go out of doors first, no slobbering on hands, etc... The ideal home for Zeke would have active adults, another playful dog (we really want this for Zeke!), and children over 8. Although we don't require a fenced yard for all of our ResQ dogs' adoptions, **Zeke will need a family that has a fenced yard** for secure playtime. Check out more pictures of Zeke!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Zeke!, a Bristol 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 Bristol, or seeking a Rat Terrier dog from a breeder in Bristol.

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