Merry's Story...
location: Greensboro, NC
Merry is a wonderful little dog, approximately 3 years old. She is small (only 8 1/2 inches tall), and weighs about 8 pounds - but is not fragile. Merry runs and plays with all the other dogs including a 70 pound Doberman. She was attacked several times by large dogs, and one of those attacks resulted in eye damage; she has lost sight in that eye, and it is somewhat shriveled. Merry has had no problems because of her diminished sight. She is a very snugly little girl. Merry is a very social dog who loves people and other animals. She is housebroken, comes when called (most of the time), walks well on a leash, uses a doggy door, and she does not need constant supervision. While she prefers to sleep under the covers with her person, she is content to stay in a crate with a blanket. Merry has been child tested by a quiet 10 year old, and (because of her size) would probably do well with younger children as long as they are respectful. We call her Merry because she came to Ratbone during Christmas, and the name suits her, since she is such a happy, cheerful little girl. To see more pix of Merry please use this link.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Merry, a Jacksonville 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 Jacksonville, or seeking a Rat Terrier dog from a breeder in Jacksonville.

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