Rocky's Story...
Rocky is a one year old neutered male purebred rat terrier. He was tearfully surrendered when his owner had a baby. We're just getting to know Rocky, but he seems quite delightful. He likes kids and dogs and has lived with a cat (although he may not like all cats). He's used to having someone around most of the time, so an at-home person or retiree would be ideal.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rocky, a Milton 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 Milton, or seeking a Rat Terrier dog from a breeder in Milton.

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