Facts about Orion - Needs to be in a home!

  • Breed: Rat Terrier Mix
  • Color: Tricolor (Tan/Brown & Black & White)
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
In early October little 11 lb. Orion was hit by a car and dragged. Animal Control found him and called his owner (via info on his microchip) who said she couldn't afford any medical bills and told them to put him down. They refused since he was otherwise healthy and only around a year old. (Yeah!)

We took him in, got him the medical attention he needed and cleaned him up. He's not using his back right leg yet and we're waiting to see if he will or if it will need to be amputated. When Orion first came in he was sad and in pain but still friendly and sweet. Now he's feeling better and his wounds are healing he's also a PEPPY little guy! He runs and hops around on his three good legs. (He no longer has to wear the cone, that picture is from when he first arrived.)

He really needs to be in a home - either a foster home while he waits adoption or, preferably, in a permanent adoption home. Currently he's in a cage and not able to exercise much or attempt to use his bad leg. We need him in a home where he can move around more freely. If you can adopt or foster Orion, please complete an adoption application (just note in the pet name section that you are only interested in fostering). You will not be responsible for any medical treatment costs for him while fostering (as long as you bring him to us for check-ups). Email or call 770-971-0100 for more info.

Adoption fees include spaying/neutering, micro-chipping, vaccinations up to date at the time of adoption, one free check-up at Town & Country main vet clinic within 14 days of adoption and a free session with Tenasity dog trainers!
