Lefty's Story...

This dog's fosterhome is located in: ****Portland, Tennessee****Lefty is a tall standard rat terrier, weighing about 26 pounds. It’s hard to imagine, but he was a very skinny 16 pounds when he was picked up as an emaciated and neglected stray.  The shelter volunteer nick-named him 'Honeybun' because that's what they had to use to catch him.  Despite all the hardships in his short life, Lefty still loves everyone.  He likes men and women equally, and thinks he is a 10-pound lap dog!  Lefty can be a bit head-strong at times, and really needs someone with a firm hand.  A terrier-wise family would be great, because he is a big guy!  He gets along with all of the dogs in his foster home unless he is challenged, and then he will stick up for himself.   Lefty wants to please his master, and obeys commands when given authoritatively.  He is very playful and usually gets along with all of the dogs in his foster home, even the smaller dogs.  He has very long legs and loves to chase squirrels and birds in the backyard of his foster home.  Because of his prey drive, he is not good with cats.  And because he is a big boy who loves to play, he would probably be better with children over 6.  His perfect home would have a fenced backyard so he could get plenty of exercise.  We don't think he would be a good candidate for an apartment dog.  He is crate trained (sleeps willingly in a crate) and completely housebroken with a doggie door.  He is extremely loving and affectionate, and walks great on a leash.  He also likes to ride in the car!  There’s just nothing bad to say about this wonderful guy.  For more photos of Lefty in his foster home, check his album often: http://ImageEvent.com/coram/lefty

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Lefty, a Babson Park 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 Babson Park, or seeking a Rat Terrier dog from a breeder in Babson Park.

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