Lucy's Story...
Hello. I’m all ready to get started on this adoption gig, so let me tell you a few things about myself. I have very soft fur, tall ears, and an expressive face. I’m a bit curious and have an endearing personality, or so I have been told. I LOVE squeaky toys, playing fetch or frisbee, running around the yard with children. I also like to be praised. I’m going to be easy train, because I do so want to please my people. I will do best in a home with older children and/or adults. I’m a little timid of strangers at first, but once I get a chance to meet people, I’m fine. I am a lady and as such, I do prefer to have proper and polite introductions to other dogs. I get a little overwhelmed when dogs rush up to me and stick their noses in my face. But once everyone is calm, I’m good to start to socialize. I’m the kind of dog who loves action, but doesn't mind my quiet time, too. I am playful, inquisitive, clever, and silly. I am very attentive and I’ll respond to your facial expressions. I have an active mind, so mental stimulation through training, puzzle games, or outside adventures that can keep me thinking are fabulous for wearing me out. Although I do not need to crate, I do like a quiet crate to retreat to when I want to relax. I’ll put myself to bed. And I do love to be petted. So, if you are looking for a clever, active and affectionate girl…I’m your girl! Want to meet me? Please contact

Lucy is currently enrolled in an obedience class at Peace Love and Dogs. If she is adopted before her class is over, the remaining sessions will be transferred to her new owner. If she has completed her course at the time of adoption, WAGS Fund will provide one private session with her trainer to familiarize her new family with her training regimen and commands.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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