Gemma's Story...
Prescott, AZ
Meet Gemma - a very sweet 4 year old, 11 pound Rat Terrier/Dachshund mix! Gemma is a loving little girl who adores squeaky toys and balls, and is always very happy! She is crate trained, preferring to sleep in her crate at bed time; she sleeps through the night without a sound. Gemma is fun-loving and very playful, but will quiet down easily and watch TV with her person as well. Little Gemma has a sad story to tell: she had both of her back legs broken by a cruel owner when she was just a little pup. Gemma has a pin in her left rear leg and a plate in her right rear leg, but it doesn't slow her down at all; just don't try to go through a metal detector with her! Gemma is housebroken when kept to a schedule, and would be fine with kids over 10. She is reserved when she first meets you, but after a few minutes she'll be your best friend! Gemma does fine with other dogs once she gets to know them, and she ignores the dog-savvy cats in her foster home. She does have some submissive wetting issues, but her fostermom is working on that, and Gemma's already much better than when she first arrived!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gemma, a Phoenix 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 Phoenix, or seeking a Rat Terrier dog from a breeder in Phoenix.

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