Tootsie's Story...
location: Jacksonville, FL
Seniors for Seniors
Hi there! My name is Tootsie. I am a lovable little Rattie who is very excited to find my furever home! The doctor thinks I'm about 9 years old, but reassures me I'm only as old as I think I am. I like to play sometimes, and pretend to growl when I play. I love spending time outside or going on walks (I'm pretty good in the car too); there's nothing like being outside! I love to give kisses and snuggle up. My favorite time to snuggle is at night, when I get to curl up under the sheets at your feet; it keeps me from getting cold, which happens sometimes and I start to shiver. I also shake a little when I'm super excited, like when you get home. I can't wait to see you and love on you! I don't nip at kids when they give me love or pet me, the attention is just so awesome! I also enjoy other dogs, but am a bit skittish since I'm only about 12 pounds.... you know, those other dogs are just so big! I can't wait to go home to my furever home, is it you? Here is my photo album.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Tootsie, 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.
