BRUTUS's Story...
Meet Brutus is the pup with all the personality in the world. On Feb. 9th Brutus turned 6 weeks old. He is the first to greet you in the morning with paws up and tail wagging and he just can't wait to be picked up. He makes the cutest little squeaky noses when he is looking for attention and he is not above knocking a sibling out of the way to get it. He appreciates a good cuddle but also longs to roam about his new surroundings. He even followed my big dog out the door this morning onto the deck where he promptly did all his business. I was so proud. When he first got here he was the quiet cuddler who was content to sit in anyone's lap including my 2 little girls. Being sniffed by the big dogs didn't phase him one bit. He was quiet throughout the night and only did his business on the wee wee pads but once he heard people up this morning he turned on the charm and begged for his release. Right now he seems to be more interested in people and exploring. Brutus has been winning us over with his charm and wit and courage. And we just love that he is not at all nippy. As we get to know this sweet one better, we will update the description.

UPDATE: Well, Brutus continues to be our little entertainer as he just can't contain his excitement when his humans are around. Every time we get the same enthusiastic greeting and I would swear he smiles at us. He expects to be picked up first when I come in and will bowl over his siblings to get his turn. When being held, Brutus does like to give gentle kisses. What a mush! Most amusing, however, is that Brutus apparently loves belly rubs and will roll over for one and wiggles as we rub his belly. Such a ham! He is doing very well with the wee wee pads and is accident-free. In his spare time, Brutus loves the squeaky toys and wrestling with his siblings. We can't help but love this guy.

Each pup has had their first vet exam, a shot, and de-worming, etc We make sure they have no fleas prior to going into our foster homes. They are fostered out of the shelter at least two weeks or more prior to adopting to monitor health. We take their care seriously!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

BRUTUS, a West Milford 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 West Milford, or seeking a Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) puppy from a breeder in West Milford.

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