Shady's Story...

This dog's fosterhome is located in: ****Mastic Beach, New York**** Meet the newest rescue on Long Island, NY:  Mr. “Slim Shady”!  Shady, as we call him, is 4 months old and one really super smart pup!  He’s nearly housebroken with a doggie door or if you pay attention to his signs.  Shady listens well to basic commands (come, sit, stay) and even fetches!  You can see a video of him in action by clicking the link to his photo album. Shady is learning which toys are his and which items that might look good to play with, are really mommy’s shoes.  He sleeps well in his crate all night long, but will wake up ready to play and take on the day.  He plays well with his foster siblings, loves squeaky toys, balls to fetch and ropes to play tug o’ war with.  Once he’s played off some energy, Shady loves to lay next to you for naptime, or will spend some quiet time in his crate.  Shady has long legs and a full tail but his big ears are undecided as he currently has one floppy ear and one that stands up.  At only about 5 pounds now, he should be about 12-15 pounds when fully grown.  Like all puppies, he LOVES to eat and doesn’t like to share his bowl too much, but not overly so, and we will work on that.   Shady is a classic tri color, white and black with tan accents to show off his beautiful face.   Shady has deep, soulful, dark eyes that say “I just want to please you and be loved” or “are you ready to play?”  Shady’s big personality and intelligence makes for a great companion and possibly, could be a good candidate for agility training!  Are you looking for a puppy to add to your life?  If so, Shady could be the “perfect pup,” just like his foster mom says!  For Shady’s photo album, click here:

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Shady, a Libertyville Rat Terrier puppy 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 puppy 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.
