Harlan's Story...
Harlan is a sweet boy who loves other animals. He is very shy and reserved when meeting new people but is slowly learning that no one is going to hurt him :) He loves life and warms up quickly to people once he knows they mean him no harm and he also bonds quickly and will always look to his person or other dog for reassurance.

Harlan is a 1 year old Rat Terrier Mix, who is neutered, up to date on vaccines and microchipped. Harlan is house trained but currently not able to use the crate successfully - he is learning to not be afraid but due to his past he is terrified of being crated.

Harlan's ideal home would be one where they can spend time with him and help him come out of his shell and adapt to being loved and showing love. He would benefit from lots of socialization and continued training to instill confidence and security in him. At this time we would suggest no children under the age of 5, just due to boundaries and that Harlan needs a slower introduction to new people and young children normally do not respect boundaries. Harlan has met and interacted with children and would love to be around children who respect his space and would never put him in a situation he is uncomfortable in :)

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Harlan, a Troy 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 Troy, or seeking a Rat Terrier dog from a breeder in Troy.

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