Tinkerbell's Story...

This dog's fosterhome is located in: ****SOUTH WINSDOR, CONTECTICUTT**** Tinkerbell is a two and a half-year old female who needs a gentle, loving home and a family that she can give her love and affection to in return.  She is extremely timid and submissive but ever so loving once she feels safe.  She would snuggle all day and kiss you to death if she could.  She is not a chewer or destructive and likes playing with our toys nicely.  She is playful and friendly with other dogs and picks up the household routine quickly.  We are not sure how she will do with cats. Tinkerbell has a white smooth coat, and is the classic tricolor with big brown eyes. She has an 8-inch tail, stands 10.5 inches at the shoulders and is 17 inches long from nose to the base of her wagging tail. She weighs 14.2 lbs.   She can be crated but is housetrained and walks very nicely on a leash..  Tink is quite an acrobat and can jump very high.  She loves to be on your lap if it's free and also loves a good car ride.  Tinkerbell comes to her name like a good girl and has recently been learning to sit.  This sweet girl gets nervous and fearful around small children, so she needs a home with adults or older kids.  For more pictures and video clips of her in action, visit Tinkerbell's photo album at .

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Tinkerbell, 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.
