Twiggy's Story...

This dog's fosterhome is located in: ****Majestic Beach, New York****



“Twiggy” used to be called “Tippy” before she came to ResQ.  Her long legs and slender build brought back vintage images from the 60’s & 70’s.  At 3 years old and only 6 lbs, this female tri-color mostly black and white with tan could probably use a pound or two.  Only a short while ago, Twiggy was separated from her brother when HE escaped the shelter in KY, but she safely arrived in her fostermom's arms on September 25th.  She seems so delicate, but can show her hardy side when in the yard with her foster siblings.  She arrived with a nasty case of kennel cough, but is finally feeling well, and we get to see the real Twiggy!  She’s such a sweetheart and would like nothing than to sit in your lap 24/7.  She is crate trained and mostly housetrained with a doggie door, or as long as you keep her on a schedule and watch for her signs.  She doesn’t mind the crate and sometimes, feels most comfortable in when she wants to get away from it all.  She loves to give kisses and make you happy.  Twiggy loves EVERYONE, furry & human, small & tall!  You don’t need a lot of space for this girl, just enough room in your heart! Her soulful eyes will pull at your heart strings and you’ll fall in love.  She would be a loyal, loving companion with a patient family or parent(s).   Feel free to contact ResQ  for more information on the world’s newest sweetheart, Twiggy the Rat Terrier!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Twiggy, a Libertyville 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 Libertyville, or seeking a Rat Terrier dog from a breeder in Libertyville.

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