Hope's Story...
We got a call from a lady that found a momma dog and 3 puppies under an abandoned trailer. She had never had a dog before just cats and had no clue what to do. We rushed over to help even though she was nearly 2 hours from us. When we got there the puppies came out to meet us and we got them very easy. As for mum (Hope) there was no sight of her. We sat there for a bit and she would not come out from wherever she was. We decided to get the puppies to safety and come back the next day with a humane trap to catch her. The puppies were old enough they did not need her milk anymore so we were not worried about her not being with them that night. We left her some food and went back the next day. We set the trap and put some hot dogs in there for her as who would not come to a hot dog? We kept are distance from the trap and watched as she walked around it trying to figure out how to get the food. Finally she went in and the trap did not go off. It was an older trap and was acting up. We set the trap near the ladies house as Hope had been getting in her trash. We got a call about 11pm to say she was in the trap and the lady took her in the house. We rushed the next day to get her and reunited her with her babies. It was a great sight to see them all so happy to see each other. Hope was very scared at her foster home and when it was time for her to be fixed we put her in a foster home with dogs her age and a fenced in yard where we knew she could not get out. Hope is still very scared but will come up to her foster mum for treats and will sleep on the bed around the other dogs. Hope is going to need someone to be very patient with her as it will take some time for her to trust someone as she is so timid. She also needs to be in a home with other dogs or she is going to be like a fish out of water. She loves to play with the other dogs in the home from 5lbs to 100lbs. She is only about a year old and 16lbs. She is some kind of wire haired terrier mix. If you are patient, have a fenced in yard and another dog or 2 for her to play with you sound like a great match for this beautiful sweet girl. She is fully vetted meaning fixed, current on all shots, heartworm negative, micro chipped and on monthly prevention.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Hope, a Washington Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) for sale in Washington, or seeking a Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) dog from a breeder in Washington.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Washington 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 Washington 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 Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) breeders who help with Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Washington paves the way for another one to be saved.
