Henry's Story...
Henry is a 1 yr old neutered male rat terrier/dachshund mix. Henry was turned into a local shelter after being hit by a car. Henry's pelvis was broken and he spent several days at the vet's office being treated. After he was rescued by us, he spent six weeks confined to a crate in order for his pelvis to heal. He has been x-rayed again and the vet has cleared Henry for adoption. Henry's pelvis has healed but it is not in perfect condition. Because of this, Henry may need medication and/or surgery later on in his life. He will need an adopter committed to making sure he is comfortable as he gets older. Henry is a super sweet boy who likes to be cuddled but only after he is done running circles around the room. He loves to play with other dogs. Henry likes to wrestle...a lot. Henry is crate-trained but is not totally housebroken yet. Henry also does well with cats and if they will play with him, that's just fine with Henry. Henry is an energetic little sprite that is looking for a home to call his own.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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