Sammy Davis's Story...

This dog's fosterhome is located in: MA

My name is Sammy Davis. I am between 2-3 years old and I weigh about 17 pounds. I am a sweet, fun loving, and active dog. I currently live with my foster family which includes my foster brother Emeril and 2 cats. Life right now is good as I am fed and loved! It hasn't always been this way though. I was returned to Ratbone in July and at that point I was down to 11 lbs, was very hungry, and heartworm positive. Luckily, a nice vet and helped me out and I have received treatment for my heartworms and have gained weight! Despite my ordeal, I am a wonderful dog. I love people of all ages, including all kids! If you want a dog who loves to snuggle then I'm it! All I want is to be close to my people and show them how much I love them! I am fully housetrained and know my basic commands although you will need to remind me so I don't "forget". I would prefer to be an only pet but I can get along with other dogs and cats in time, if I get to know them and am reminded that I don't need to chase them all the time.

OUR ADOPTION FEE is $150 ($175 for puppies younger than 12 months; $200 for American Hairless Terriers).

That is the only way to access the fosterparent for this particular dog, who is the only person who can answer specifics about this dog's personality or geographic location. (Our dogs are located in private fosterhomes around the state, and we do not provide those addresses on the Internet or to casual inquiries, and you cannot just "drop by" to see a dog without prearranging it with the fosterhome.)

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sammy Davis, a Worcester 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 Worcester, or seeking a Rat Terrier dog from a breeder in Worcester.

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