Truman's Story...
This dog's fosterhome is located in:
****Lockport, New York****

Truman has been adopted! -- Please look at our other Rat Terriers awaiting homes!

Take a moment to meet Truman! This 12.5 pound little guy was urgently removed from a shelter as his time was nearly up there. It is such a relief that we were able to bring him into ResQ because he is an absolutely phenomenal dog. This guy is housetrained, crate-trained, very intelligent and best of all, the most kissable, hugable, loveable, unbelievable snuggle-bunny that ever existed! This 3-year-old boy does fantastic on a leash for potty-time, but has also learned to use a doggy door at his fosterhome and likewise, does excellent! He seems to kind of want his people's attention as much as possible, so maybe a household with one or two other animals would be best (he's with 7 others in his fosterhome!) Also, Truman is perfectly content to hang out in an open crate and just relax during the day, which you don't often see. He's just such a good boy! We have not officially tested him with cats or children, but he is so laid back and so sweet that it is unlikely that either would pose a problem. There are no words to describe how thankful we are to have been able to save this sweetheart and help him on his way to his furever life - he is a gem for sure! Do you have extra time in your life that you'd like to fill being unconditionally loved by a spectacular rattie? Truman is raising his paw for you to choose him!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Truman, a Winston-Salem 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 Winston-Salem, or seeking a Rat Terrier dog from a breeder in Winston-Salem.

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