Hobbs's Story...
Say hello to Hobbes! He and his brother, Calvin, were found wandering together and picked up by Gwinnett County Animal Control. Given how skinny they are, it looks like they had been on their own for a while, but that doesn't seem to have had any effect on how sweet they are! Hobbes is much more timid than his brother. When I went to evaluate the two of them at animal control, he wouldn't leave his brother's side for a second. He seemed very insecure about the world and looked to his brother for safety. Even during the short time he has been in his foster home, he has opened up a lot. He sticks like glue to humans now and wants nothing more than to snuggle in close to you as you scratch his head. With some time and exposure to new experiences, he should really come out of his shell. We will update his bio as we get to know him better. Hobbes is learning all the basic obedience commands such as sit, down, wait, and come in his foster home as well as basic house manners. He already knows about settling down in his crate at bedtime and is quickly catching on to house training. Terriers are typically very smart—he should be a dog training star in no time! Since Hobbes is a little skittish around sudden sounds and movements right now, a home with very young children might be overwhelming for him, but older children should be fine. Come by to meet Hobbes and let him weasel his way into your heart!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Hobbs, a Bogart 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 Bogart, or seeking a Rat Terrier dog from a breeder in Bogart.

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