Baby (SPECIAL)'s Story...
Baby is a precious senior 25 lb. female Terrier small mixed breed. She has an ultra soft coat, but it wasn't always like that. Baby came into the league as a stray who wandered into a veterinarian office. She had obviously been on the street for a while, but all attempts to find her family failed. She was malnourished, had a skin condition and as no surprise, an urinary tract infection. But you should see her now!
Beautiful Baby has gained weight and her ribs no longer show; her skin condition was treated with weeks of special baths, and now her coat is soft and silky and some unsightly skin tags were removed; and her UTI was treated and she is doing great. The veterinary has determined, given her age, she will likely need to be maintained on Proin, but that is a relatively inexpensive drug that on average, is less than $10 a month.
Baby, who is affectionately called Grandma in her foster home, is super sweet and loves to lay in her foster mom's arms and have belly rubs. She is content to go to sleep in your arms, if given the chance. But she's no wallflower. One of her favorite things to do is to go for a car ride. She'd make a great RV dog!
Baby is dog social, if the other dog is respectful of her, and she seems indifferent to cats, however is not living with a cat, but we think it would be a non issue. She is crate trained, but she doesn't touch anything if left loose.
She is fine around children, and loves their attention, but we suggest a retired family lifestyle would be more fitting for her.
She is current on all her vaccines, spayed and microchipped.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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