Betsy's Story... THIS DOG CURRENTLY HAS AN ADOPTION PENDING. Please check back later to verify status.
Betsy is approximately 1 year old. She weighs about 8 lbs. and is about 12" tall--a leggy little girl! Betsy is house-trained, crate-trained, and very sweet and loving. Her main desire in life is to love on her chosen people. She adores snuggling, giving kisses, and taking long walks. She is good with other dogs and with children, letting them love on her and play with her. Betsy has her active side, too, and she likes rough-housing and playing in the yard. She is just an all-around great dog! Betsy has so much love and attention to give to her future forever home. She is waiting for you! OUR ADOPTION FEE is $150 ($175 for puppies younger than 6 months; $200 for American Hairless Terriers).

QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS DOG?The email address on this page is for website-related issues ONLY. For answers to specific questions about a particular dog, you MUST submit an Adoption Application!

(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.) Because we are an all-volunteer organization and receive a very high volume of inquiries, we can only respond personally to people who have demonstrated a serious interest in adoption by filling out our application.

Why Adoption is a Great Option
Betsy, a Antioch 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 Antioch, or seeking a Rat Terrier dog from a breeder in Antioch.
Rescues and shelter volunteers in Antioch 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.
On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Antioch 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
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 Antioch paves the way for another one to be saved.
