Newport's Story...
Newport was found dodging cars in Crosby, TX off Newport street. Unfortunately, he was not chipped and efforts to find his people were unsuccessful. Newport is OK with that. His former people weren’t all that great. His former people forgot to give him his monthly heartworm pill…so he had to postpone his trip to Wisconsin until he completed his heartworm treatment. He is now healthy and ready to start his new life in Wisconsin!!!

Newport is a lap dog. Newport needs to know he is loved. He would be happy to sit in your lap all day long and get strokes. If you forget to pet him…he will remind you. He is very affectionate and good natured. Newport has a very sweet personality. He loves other dogs…he plays well with his small and medium sized foster siblings…but I think he would be ok being an only dog too. Newport is crate trained and house trained. His current foster home does have a dog door and he is very good about using it. Newport is happy to go in his crate while his foster mom is at work or when it is time to go to bed. I think he would be thrilled to sleep in the bed too!!! Newport was also fed in his crate at his foster home.

Newport will make a wonderful companion!!!!!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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