Baxter's Story...
Baxter is a Rat Terrier, senior, weighing about 20 lbs., neutered, chipped, with all current shots. He is housebroken, fit and loves to sleep under the covers with you at night. He gets along great with other dogs, although occasionally he gets grumpy. He's behaves perfectly at the dog park. He should have an owner that can be a "pack leader". He loves to follow you around the house, likes attention and loves affection. He is about 9 years old.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Baxter, a Encino 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 Encino, or seeking a Rat Terrier dog from a breeder in Encino.

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