Lady's Story...

This dog's fosterhome is located in: ****Tampa Florida****Lady is a sweet, affectionate, friendly, outgoing 3 year-old female rat terrier. She has a lot of energy and is always ready to run and play. She is good  with other dogs, but not cats or other small animals, due to her prey drive. She loves to chase squirrels, rabbits, and lizards. She will spend hours outside hunting, which means she requires a home with a secure fenced yard. She would not be happy as an apartment or condo dog because she needs an outlet for her energy.  She needs to be with a person or family who is very active. (i.e. taking her for long walks daily, letting her run, and making sure she has plenty of activities to keep her occupied.) Lady would be great at dog sports, such as agility or fly ball.  She needs a job!  She will only thrive in an active environment. She is highly intelligent, curious, and social. A home with another playful dog would be great for her, as well as a home with older children who can play with her, although she may be too exuberant for toddlers.  Lady loves being around people.  Lady has learned several commands, with the help of a volunteer trainer.  She knows “sit”, “stay” and “down.”  She is very smart!  She is nervous when it thunders (she wants to sit on laps and be comforted)  She sleeps quietly on her bed at night, and does not like being crated.  Her favorite thing is to swim in the ocean!  She has been to the dog beach and loves it!  She also loves going to the dog parks to socialize.  If you are looking for an active companion, Lady could be the one!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Lady, 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.
