Sara's Story...
Sarah, a West Highland White Terrier mix (aka: a Westie) needs an angel for a friend. We at RMCSR fondly classify her as a “Little Interloper” … but in actuality the little lass is ‘a “Wee” Interloper’. Just ten years young, she weighs 15 pounds, is heartworm negative, and up to date on all her shots, including a 3 year rabies tag. She also has a HomeAgain Microchip. Her blood work is as normal as can be and her teeth are whiter than freshly fallen snow. However, she has a mild to moderate heart murmur and must be on a low cost blood pressure medication for the remainder of her life. A dreadful past has caused Sarah to have very little trust in people, particularly men. She is very distrusting of men and will likely always be. Therefore we believe that Sarah will be happiest and feel most secure with a genteel, refined, soft- spoken woman. So we will be looking for that special someone, an earth angel to love and care for Sarah, to be her life-long guardian and her forever friend. What’s important to know is that Sarah is a very brave little girl. It will take time, patience and your kind, gentle hand to help her reach the mountain top. On that fine day, having nothing left to fear, she will be the spirited, energetic cutie she was born to be. Her promise to you… a diamond in the rough today, a brilliant gem tomorrow! Sarah thrives when with her foster pack friends. She looks to her fellow pack members for guidance, reassurance and protection. Their companionship calms her and she feels secure in their midst. Her pack means everything in the world to her. She views them as an example how ones life is when their spirit is free of fear … something that she has likely not experienced till now. She loves to be outdoors. She can run if she feels like it, or she can meander about with no particular place to go. It’s up to her. It’s such a thrill to see her so care free and excited that she literally hops (or rather bounces) with pure delight from place to place … it’s as if she was never allowed to do that before. She visits each of her foster pack friends trying to engage them in a playful game of chase. They almost never take the bait, but will on occasion. That’s when she is happiest. Indoors she is most comfortable hunkering down in one of her self-designated safe zones; usually it’s on a bed, floor pillow or on her foster mom’s lap. However, please trust me when I write that she is certainly not relaxed when I share her space. No sir…foster Dad’s lap is definitely not a safe zone. Sarah was so firmly bonded to her best friend and protector Bella, that when they came to RMCSR we were told they could never be separated, and that they must be adopted together. Sadly, brave little Bella has since crossed the Rainbow Bridge, therefore another dog or two for Sarah to play with is an absolute must. Children make her nervous … too much commotion and noise frightens her and she immediately retreats to a quiet safe zone. So no children please. Cats are an unknown, but I think she’ll be okay with them. It is most desirable if her new mom were retired or works from home as Sarah is simply not ready to be left alone for any length of time. Nor is she ready to go to the office, as she is not completely house trained (but she’s close), and she has no knowledge of the basic commands such as sit, stay, come, go, wait, etc., all are totally foreign to her. So for her safety, before she can be taken to an office or large complex, or even a friends house, she will have to attend obedience classes. That is a must. Lastly, she does not like the smell of cigarette smoke. It seems to bring back some ghosts from her past. Please no smokers.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sara, a Pueblo West Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) for sale in Pueblo West, or seeking a Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) dog from a breeder in Pueblo West.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Pueblo West 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 Pueblo West 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 Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) breeders who help with Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Pueblo West paves the way for another one to be saved.
