Houdini's Story...
Meet the infamous Houdini! If you haven’t seen his rescue video, check it out! It is by far one of the most exciting rescue videos out there. Now that we’ve got this little guy in our hands, we’ve learned that he is first and foremost a magician. It goes like this, you meet him, he locks eyes with you, gives you a kiss, crawls up on your lap and hocus pocus he has stolen your heart! Houdini is wicked smart and loves to learn new tricks. This 2 ½ year old learned to high five for his supper in mere seconds. Houdini weighs in at about 12 pounds and is learning to use a leash. Since Houdini lived as a stray for a very long time, he is still a serious flight risk. He needs another dog to be his buddy and to show him just how amazing it is to be a loved part of a family. A very secure yard with a fence a minimum of 6 feet is also necessary. Houdini is an absolutely fantastic dog but because of his past he needs a very serious adopter who will be able to convince this fella that life of the streets is the way to live and prosper.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Houdini, a Van Nuys 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 Van Nuys, or seeking a Rat Terrier dog from a breeder in Van Nuys.

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