Smidgen's Story...
Name: Smidgen
Breed: Rat Terrier mix
Age: Young Adult
Gender: Female

Smidgen is a young adult female Rat Terrier mix, about 15 pounds, who was absolutely terrified when her owner left at a busy, noisy impound. She hid in the corner, shook, and showed her teeth to anyone who came close. A dedicated foster got a leash on her, brought her home, and she has completely done a 180. Smidgen leaps on your legs for attention, loves to curl in your lap, enjoys walks, and is thriving in a loving home. She is still insecure about who to trust and shy at first, so does need an adult/older kid home who has patience to love her and help her build confidence. Her house training is going well and she is crated for the workday. Smidgen is fostered in KY until May 21st when she arrives in MN.

Requirements: Adult/older child home

You can email with questions and for a preadopt application. This dog has been spayed/neutered, vaccinated as age appropriate, tested for heartworm disease if age appropriate, and dewormed.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Smidgen, a Minneapolis 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 Minneapolis, or seeking a Rat Terrier dog from a breeder in Minneapolis.

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