Buddy Ray's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Buddy Ray's Story... -- Hi. I’m Buddy Ray. Don’t you love my ears?

I was owned by a nice lady who moved from her parents’ home where there were people and other dogs all the time into an apartment where I was by myself for long periods of the day. I got scared being by myself for so long and did some things I guess I shouldn’t have done. I wasn’t able to stay with her any longer.

The nice folks at Valley Dogs took me in. I am in a foster home now with other dogs. There is only one human at my foster home, and even though she is gone for long periods of the day, I have exhibited no problems. Having the other dogs to play with keeps me from getting bored and I don’t get scared since I am not all alone. Therefore, I must go to a home where the humans are home all the time or that has another dog to keep me company.

I am a very happy little guy. My ears are always perked up listening for you and my tail goes a mile a minute to show my joy. Sometimes I even smile. Mind you, I can be a bit timid of new people and new dogs at first, but just give me a little time to warm up and you will see this joyful, devoted, loving side of me.

I am house broken and have even been seen using the potty patch at my foster mom’s house. I love going for walks and seeing the world with you, but my favorite thing is to spend time with my humans. I love to cuddle, sit on laps, and soak in all the attention you can give me. I really love to sleep curled up next to you at night under the covers -- just to make sure you don’t get scared.

Hmmm, what else can I tell you about me? Ah shucks, why don’t you just come down and meet me. Be sure to ask for Buddy Ray.

Wouldn’t you like to meet me? If so, please complete an adoption interest form and email

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Buddy Ray, a Gilbert Rat Terrier/Chihuahua dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Rat Terrier/Chihuahua for sale in Gilbert, or seeking a Rat Terrier/Chihuahua dog from a breeder in Gilbert.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Gilbert 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 Gilbert 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/Chihuahua breeders who help with Rat Terrier/Chihuahua rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Gilbert paves the way for another one to be saved.
