Nutmeg's Story...

This dog's fosterhome is located in: ****Green Bay, Wisconsin****  

Just look at this beautiful girl!  Nutmeg is between 2 and 3 years old, and weighs about 13 pounds.  She loves everyone!
She is a favorite of her foster dad, and Nutmeg follows her foster mom everywhere.  She is especially fond of taking one
of her foster mom’s shoes to her dog bed, where she happily curls up next to it.  Nutmeg is housebroken with a doggie
door, and also crate trained.  She is affectionate and would probably be a great family dog, although she does have a
habit of pawing at you when she wants to be petted.  She stands on her hind legs and waves her front paws in the air, and
it’s very cute.  Nutmeg rides well in the car, and walks well on a leash.  She obviously had a family that loved her and took
care of her, but somehow found herself alone in a shelter.  We are amazed that no one came looking for this special
little girl.  She can jump baby gates at a single bound!  She is quite the athlete, and would thrive in an active home where
she got lots of exercise.  For more photos of Nutmeg, check her album often:  http://imageevent.com/coram/nutmeg

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Nutmeg, 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.
