Catolina's Story...
location: Raleigh, NC
Catolina (also known as Katie) is a spunky, 2 year old, 9 pound Rat Terrier. She loves her "person" and prefers to be your one and only. Katie loves to play and cuddle and has a puppy-ish personality. She barks like a little puppy when someone's at the door, but overall she is a quiet little girl when just hanging in the house. Catolina wants to be in whatever room you're in, and loves to cuddle on the bed with you at night. She is working on housetraining still, and uses the doggie door pretty well. Katie is a little shy with new people, but then warms up once held, and will be the sweetest little girl. She does well with her fostermom's children, who are ages 3 and 9 - though she will not tolerate a young toddler trying to hug her, and will run away from such taunting; we feel she is best with older, children who understand a dog's space. Catolina does well with other dogs within the fosterhome, but can be a little anxious with strange dogs. She is a true joy to have. and will make a perfect pet companion for the right home. We feel that with a little more time and being exposed more to new things, she will truly blossom. Katie is also great with either a male or female owner, and does not is not afraid of either - she's just a little shy when around strangers. If you are looking for a forever friend this little lovebug could be the one to bring lots of joy to your family. For additional photos of Catolina please click here.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Catolina, 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.
