Caroline's Story...
location: Richmond Hill, GA
Caroline is a 12 pound cutie. She came from a puppy mill, and when she first came into foster care she was afraid of every thing. Caroline had never touched grass before, and had not often been touched by human hands - except when someone threw food at her. She has come so far in the past few months. Caroline adores other dogs and cats. She will seek out affection from her fostermom, but does not like to be held. She will sit quietly behind you on the couch, and even give you a kiss every once in a while. In time this will change, as she learns to trust. Caroline is a very sweet natured girl that does love to play. She has a clown-like personality, and loves to show it off. Caroline will "talk" to you, and will run up to you for your attention, and then will shyly approach to be petted. She will also put her front legs on your legs and ease up to be petted. Caroline is so special. She has come so far after she was treated so cruelly by the breeder that never let her out of a cage month after month. She is housebroken now, and does want approval in all she does - she just doesn't quite trust all the way yet. Her fostermom says "Caroline is an exceptional doggie who needs someone to love her and be patient with her as she learns how to be a real dog". She is young, just barely a year old. She "smiles" and barks a happy hello to her foster family when they come home from work... and she does little jumps in the air and her tail stubby little wags. Caroline will need a fenced yard and would not be good with small children. If you would like to learn more about her, and maybe give her a chance to show her the love she deserves, please contact us. She is a very rare chocolate merle color.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Caroline, a Savannah 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 Savannah, or seeking a Rat Terrier dog from a breeder in Savannah.

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