Luke's Story...
location: Floyds Knobs, IN
Luke was rescued from a kill shelter in Louisville, KY - literally on his last day! Sadly, his owner left him at the shelter when he was sent to Iraq. Luke was scared to death until a lady from another rescue noticed him and rescued him for his Ratbone foster mom. Luke is extremely lovable - he just knew the shelter was no place for a sweet, sensitive boy like him! He likes to lay in your arms like a baby, loves sleeping in your bed and sitting in the recliner with anyone who wants to catch a game on the tube. Luke likes to have his own blanket for naps, and quickly makes a little nest to sleep in. He is a Rat Terrier mix; we think he may be part chihuahua, but he has a 100% Rattie attitude. Luke does very well with men, women and children. He recently went to a pet fair, where he was the star of the show. Luke is one year old, neutered, and walks well on a leash. He might be aggressive with cats, although he saw one at the shelter when he was neutered and didn't get excited. All Luke wants is a home with a family who will love and keep him for the rest of his life.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Luke, a Carmel 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 Carmel, or seeking a Rat Terrier dog from a breeder in Carmel.

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