Sparky's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Sparky's Story...
She was acquired at a shelter -- was the runt of a litter but my teenage daughter fell in love with her from the moment we walked into the building. We had a previous Rat Terrier that lived to a very old age before passing due to kidney issues. Sparky is very loveable, is shy at first around people and new situations but her tail wagging a mile a minute means she warms up quickly. She does have a congenital condition with her hind legs in that sometimes her knee cap slides out a bit causing her to limp. Our vet has assured us that dogs live for many years with this condition and it isn't a concern. But as a result she tends not to be one for 3 mile long walks. Looking to rehome her because I have accepted a new job, my kids are all gone, and she needs to be in a home that will be able to care for her and love her!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sparky, a Menomonie 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 Menomonie, or seeking a Rat Terrier dog from a breeder in Menomonie.

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