Iris's Story...
This dog's fosterhome is located in:
****Lockport, New York****







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


Iris received her name as she is a tiny little beautiful flower that came from a puppymill along with several of her siblings, but has since come to learn trust and human affection. She appears older than she is due to poor nutrition in her previous habitation. Our vets estimate her to be 3-4 years old. She is just a tiny little bug - around 8 pounds, but could use a solid pound or so to fill out. She is crate trained and uses a doggie door in her foster home with still just a few accidents. She has begun to initate play with her foster siblings, to show her cute sassy little personality. She loves cuddling. We think she would be great in a household with other dogs and children over 8 as she can be a tiny bit skittish sometimes, but is really getting over this quickly. We do not know how she would interact with cats, but she should be just fine. She is just sweet as pie and deserves to have a stable loving home to call her own forever. She will bring a smile to your house and heart, guaranteed!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Iris, 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.
