Porter's Story...
Porter is a sweet young man, maybe about a year old, with a long neck, short legs, and fantastic ears. Porter weighs around 10 pounds and may be a Rorgi. Huh?! A Rat Terrier/Corgi mix? He's shy at first, but playful and patient with other small dogs. Porter is a medium energy dog. He enjoys both his cuddle time and his play time, and would enjoy a brother or sister to match his size and energy. He is quiet and crate trained, but he is also happy to sleep with his person.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Porter, a Tijeras Rat Terrier/Corgi dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Rat Terrier/Corgi for sale in Tijeras, or seeking a Rat Terrier/Corgi dog from a breeder in Tijeras.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Tijeras 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 Tijeras 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/Corgi breeders who help with Rat Terrier/Corgi rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Tijeras paves the way for another one to be saved.
