NOTE: This dog's fosterhome is located in: ****Arkadelphia, Arkansas****Sookie has been adopted! -- Please look at our other Rat Terriers awaiting homes! Sookie has a sad story to tell behind those gorgeous brown eyes. She may not know what “foreclosure” means, but she knows that her family moved away and left her behind. A kind neighbor was feeding her and giving her water, but when it became obvious that Sookie’s family wasn’t coming back, the neighbor took her to the pound. Since she was technically an “owner surrender,” Sookie had three days to live. She was pulled by ResQ on her last day, and was a trembling, terrified mess when her foster mom picked her up from her cage. Look at her now! Sookie is between 1 and 2 years old, and appears completely house trained. She uses a doggie door, and although she will sleep in a crate if you want her to, she is grateful to sleep at the foot of her foster mom’s bed. Sookie is about 12 pounds and just as sweet as they come. She is submissive and quiet, and wags that glorious white tail all the time. Sookie was terrified at the shelter, but she’s a happy dog now! She may be fine with kids, but we haven’t tested her yet, and will update when kid & cat tests are done. Are you looking for a sweet dog like Sookie?

Why Adoption is a Great Option
Sookie, 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.
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.
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
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.
