Arrival story: Sad but true, this pup was discovered outside of a party store in a travel crate. Luckily we had a foster home available!

Approximate Age / Weight: 12 lbs. / 4 months old as of 1-20-2016

Personality: Hiccup is a lively pup and in no way intends to sit on the sidelines of life and watch it go by. His best friend is his foster brother, Comet, who he loves to play tug with and romp through the yard. Hiccup loves to play fetch and brings his toy back to you pretty regularly. Hiccup is a friendly, playful kind of dog and he’s a real snuggler when he runs out of steam. He’ll steal a place in your heart while he sneaks a spot on your lap for a nap. Hiccup sleeps the night in his crate and has almost mastered potty-training.

Watch out, though, Hiccup likes to jump in the shower almost every day at his foster home. What a character! Hiccup is good at the vet’s office and on car rides.

Forever home: Nothing would make Hiccup happier than to have his very own active family that will keep his smart mind as well as his little body busy. We think he would love activities like agility along with another doggie playmate or to go to doggie daycare.

We do not have a facility; all of our dogs are fostered in private homes. To view our dogs, please check for the dates of our next adoption events. To meet a dog in person, please see our event calendar for the latest information. Arrangements can be made to meet our rescue dogs outside of Saturday adoption events after an approved application is submitted (the application does not imply an obligation by the applicant or by the rescue group).

Please be kind to our volunteers who have made rescue a second job that they do in their spare time after coming home from full-time jobs. E-mail inquiries will be answered much more quickly than phone inquiries; our phone number is a voice mailbox only.

Thank you for your support of rescue and your interest in a rescue dog!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Puppy Hiccup, a Northville Rat Terrier/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Rat Terrier/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) for sale in Northville, or seeking a Rat Terrier/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) puppy from a breeder in Northville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Northville 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 Northville 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/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) breeders who help with Rat Terrier/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Northville paves the way for another one to be saved.
