Arrival story: Pearl was surrendered to Detroit Animal Control & Care in June by a lady who claimed she wandered into her yard and wouldn't leave. Growing up on the streets and then spending months in a shelter is no place for a young pup to be. So we decided it was time for this little lady to have the life she deserves. Her appreciation and celebratory glow shines daily.

Approximate age / Weight: Under 1 year / 40 lbs.

Personality: Pearl had a rough start and was not exposed to many people or places in a positive way so she's a bit shy and apprehensive to new things. She possesses a sweet and loving disposition and after she gets to know you will shower you will kisses and tail wags that will send her whole body swinging.

Pearl lacks confidence and has a ton of puppy energy so she will require a kind canine friend in her new home. A buddy who knows the world is a good and safe place will help her to learn by example and help her trust in situations she feels unsure of. She is a young dog so she plays hard but nicely. She also currently lives with cats and has been nothing but polite.

Pearl has energy! She loves to blast around the yard and is a toy-aholic. She is still learning to live in a home and what she can and cannot do. She is very receptive to gentle verbal commands when doing something she shouldn't, and is almost housebroken. Crating is no problem. She readily goes into her crate for bed and when her human is not home. And looks forward to the reward treat for being so cooperative.

*Note: The photo of her and her foster brother and best friend, Buddy - also up for adoption through Waggin' Tails.

Forever home: Pearl will need a family that will be willing to work with her confidence issues. Who is willing to slowly and carefully help her navigate her new experiences with positive reinforcement. She also needs a loving canine sibling as this is where she finds herself happiest.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Pearl, a Northville 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 Northville, or seeking a Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) dog from a breeder in Northville.

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