Kirby-PENDING ADOPTION's Story...
UPDATE: The first picture is Kirby as of 10/23/12 at about 12 weeks old. The others are when he was just a "baby" of about 6 weeks.

This is one of a litter of 6 terrier mix puppies abandoned at a rural Indiana shelter when they were about 6 weeks old. The shelter immediately determined that the runt of the litter had ringworm. In cases like that, their policy is to euthanize the entire litter to prevent the spread of the fungus throughout the shelter. They do not have the space for quarantine, funds for treatment or staff for the care needed. Luckily, they did have our phone number & quickly gave us a call to see if anyone wanted to foster a litter of ringworm puppies. Who could turn down an offer like that?????

The ringworm has now been treated & the entire litter will be altered on 9/28. They will be available for adoption after 10/12, which is when they will receive their 2nd puppy vaccine. There are 2 females & 4 males. About half of them have scruffy, wire-haired coats & the others are smoother. Their adoption fee will be $200 each.

Kirby is the runt of the litter. He weighed in at 1.15# on 9/17. As of 9/30 after his surgery, Kirby weighed in at 4#. He has come a long way in foster care & he is really thriving.

Kirby was the shyest of the litter at first, but he’s over that now. He’s getting used to being handled although he really doesn’t like having his ringworm medicine put on. It’s a cold liquid, but his biggest complaint is that it is PINK. He doesn’t think that is very manly.


PLEASE NOTE: If you are interested in adopting this dog, please EMAIL rather than call. That way your request can be forwarded to the appropriate person/foster home & an adoption application can be forwarded to you.

You must be at least 21 years of age & Head of Household in order to adopt from our organization.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Kirby-PENDING ADOPTION, a Aurora Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) for sale in Aurora, or seeking a Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) puppy from a breeder in Aurora.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Aurora 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 Aurora 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 Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) breeders who help with Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Aurora paves the way for another one to be saved.
