Sophie's Story...

This dog's fosterhome is located in: ****BRISTOL, CONNECTICUT****This pretty girl is named Sophie!  Sophie is a chocolate and white Rat Terrier, and weighs about 12 pounds.  We think she is about 7 years old.  This beautiful dog is a sweet and loving girl, and you will fall in love with her quickly!   She enjoys her walks and is very good on a leash.  Sophie is housebroken, but will use a potty pad on occasion if she can’t get outside. Sophie is also crate trained. She loves to take rides in the car and sleep in bed with her people, covered with a blanket, of course!  Sophie is very people-oriented, but fast-moving kids make her nervous, so she tends to scurry away.  We think she would be fine with children over 6.  She has shown absolutely no aggression when she is nervous, she just walks around or goes to a quiet place.  Her new family will need to allow her time to get settled and learn the routine. She has not been cat scanned but we will do that soon.  If her personality is a way to judge cat tolerance, we think she would be fine with cats.  Sophie’s favorite past time is to lay in the sun and enjoy life!  She would be a devoted companion to some lucky family, could that be yours?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sophie, 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.
