Cruz - in Maine's Story...
These adorable little darlings are local surrenders. We were asked to assist in re-homing them as their family's living situation changed leaving them unable to keep them. Mia and Cruz are in foster care with us now and doing well but we feel that it will be in their best interests to separate them, as they do a lot of guarding when they are together. Each is move lovey and amenable to correction when alone.

Cruz is a Rat Terrier who is 7 lbs and 2 years old. Cruz is more outgoing and within a short time he will be in your lap giving kisses. He comes when called and is brave and curious. Cruz is house-trained and crate-trained.

Up until they came to us they had limited exposure to other dogs and no exposure to cats but in just a few days in foster they have been integrated with a few other small dogs and some cats and it's going pretty well. We would not place them with young children because of their nervous and protective behavior.

To learn more about Lucky Pup Rescue, please visit our website: www.luckypuprescue.org. If you have interest in any of our dogs, please fill out the application and we'll work with you to find a great match for your family: http://www.luckypuprescue.org/#!adoption-application/c1aw8.

Please note, we do not have a physical facility where our dogs are housed, they are cared for in our network of wonderful foster homes throughout New England. If you find a dog you would like to meet, our expectation is that, once approved, you will travel to meet the dog in the foster setting where they are feeling safe and loved.

Thank you for considering rescue!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Cruz - in Maine, a kennebunkport 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 kennebunkport, or seeking a Rat Terrier dog from a breeder in kennebunkport.

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