Sparky's Story...
Sparky has been adopted! -- Please look at our other Rat Terriers awaiting homes!


This dog's fosterhome is located in:
****New Britain, CT****





Sparky is the best dog in the world! Current owner's move forces her adoption. Her family (including young children) are terrible sad to say goodbye to her.


Sparky is about 2 yrs old, weighs 22 lbs, is fully house-trained and crate trained. She is extremely intelligent, beautiful, funny, athletic, and playful. She is very friendly with strangers, and loves to play with other dogs. Her approach with cats is unknown, but she would probably want to play with them too! Her temperament is gentle, and she is endlessly curious. She wrestles, but never bites. Sparky is a great companion, and is always looking for ways to please. She loves her walks, and walks well on her leash, but is also very happy to patrol the yard, and run around in circles throwing and catching her toys. Sparky is in heaven sitting on your lap at the end of the day, and being patted. Her facial expressions are almost human. She cocks her head to one side, and swivels each ear independently when she finds something curious.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sparky, 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.
