Lyla's Story...
NOTE: This dog's fosterhome is located in: ****Egg Harbor City, New Jersey**** Lyla has been adopted! -- Please look at our other Rat Terriers awaiting homes!You have to wonder why a young pup like Lyla wound up in a shelter – especially one as sweet as Lyla! Our vets say she is 8 months old, and weighs 14 pounds.  Lyla has a short bobtail and erect ears, and brindle coloration on the sides of her pretty face. She was skin and bones when pulled from the shelter because she was being housed with much larger dogs who wouldn’t let her eat. Lyla is submissive to all the other dogs in her foster home, and is such an easy-going girl, we feel she would do well in just about any family situation. She is doing very well with her house training, and is already crate trained. She happily snuggles with her human, and is so dear. She is a happy-go-lucky girl who has shown no behavioral issues at all. All this happy girl lacks is a home of her own! Maybe Lyla is just the right dog for your family? Please see more photos of darling Lyla.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Lyla, 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.
