Dixie Belle's Story...
Dixie Belle looks like a schnauzer/irish terrier mix. This little girl was totally neglected and just found wandering the streets, skinny, filthy and just a mess. Once cleaned up she was has become such a pretty girl!!! She had to have a ligament tear repaired on one of her back legs and is doing very well. We noticed that she was limping badly when we found her and now she is walking around with no pain. She is approx 6-8 years old and 20 lbs and could do with putting on a few lbs.. She is just the sweetest and best behaved dog. She is quiet, gets along with all of the other rescues, loves people, seems to be very well house and leash trained. She is just a really adorable, easy going dog that will be a great companion for someone. She also tested positive for heart worms and has been treated with the required series of injections, and she has also been started on monthly heart guard.

The total adoption donation of $525 and includes the required interstate health certificate and transport , spay/neuter, shots including rabies, bordatella, parvo, lepto, distemper and canine influenza, and micro chip with a lifetime pre paid registration. The total amount is payable to Shaggy Dog Rescue which is a 501c3. Some of our dogs are still in Texas in foster care. The application is online at http://houstonshaggydogrescue.org/application-process/

Just as a note, if you are in Massachusetts and are adopting directly from Texas rather than from a local foster, there are new quarantine laws in effect. All rescues must be quarantined 48 hours at a state run facility, and in addition, a second interstate health certificate is required to be issued by a Massachusetts vet. This new law may add an additional cost.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dixie Belle, a Woonsocket Irish Terrier/Schnauzer (Standard) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Irish Terrier/Schnauzer (Standard) for sale in Woonsocket, or seeking a Irish Terrier/Schnauzer (Standard) dog from a breeder in Woonsocket.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Woonsocket 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 Woonsocket 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 Irish Terrier/Schnauzer (Standard) breeders who help with Irish Terrier/Schnauzer (Standard) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Woonsocket paves the way for another one to be saved.
