Patty's Info...

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

Patty's Story...
Patty almost instantly adjusted to our home and became best friends with everyone. Although she is a small girl, don’t let her size fool you. She absolutely loves to go for long walks or runs and will spend hours running around the back yard with her ball and the other dogs. She is a beautiful, smart, courageous, cuddly girl that would make an asset to any family situation. Patty is a young girl approximately a year old and weighs just 11 lbs.

Here is what else her foster family had to say:

Patty loves all her furry friends. She gets along great with my three dogs, two Newfoundlands and a Pomeranian. Also, I am an assistant dog groomer and she comes to work with me every day and makes friends with all the dogs there for grooming. She does love cats but sometimes shows them a little too much affection but the cats will tell her when they have had enough. She is generally a very confident little girl, only briefly barking at things she is uncertain of until she becomes more comfortable.

Patty has excellent house manners, not chewing anything other than her toys and she is respectful of toys. When it’s time for bed she lifts up the blankets so she can crawl underneath to get comfy and settle in for the night. Other than a little bit of whimpering when first put into her crate or when closed in the bedroom, she does very well when left alone. She doesn’t chew anything she is not supposed to and when I return I usually find her curled up on something soft. She is now house trained.

She does not chew anything other than her toys and although counter surfing and stealing food is impossible due to her size, she doesn’t seem interested. Patty knows how to sit and come. She also understands the stay command in situations like when you’re trying to squeeze through a door without her coming out as well but she doesn’t sit and stay per say. Patty doesn’t mind her crate if she has to be crated but she would much rather sleep on the bed with me during the night or just be left the run of the bedroom when I am out. This is not a problem as I do not feel that she needs to be crated. Although Patty has mighty shoulders, she walks well on a leash and benefits from walking with her harness. Patty absolutely loves to romp around the yard and is not interested in trying to escape whatsoever. Patty loves to ride in the car. She jumps right in, sleeps either on my lap or on the passenger seat and likes looking out the window.

Patty was pampered at the spa shortly after coming from the transport so she is looking very beautiful with an extremely shiny coat. I would describe her shedding as low. Her recent spay scar is also healing very well. Patty’s tail was broken once upon a time and has healed into a perfect right angle – I think it must have been closed in a door. Other than looking a little odd it doesn’t bother her at all.

Patty will thrive in any home or family situation. She would without question love a large open space to run and play as well as a bed where she is invited to sleep underneath the covers up against her human companion. Whoever adopts Patty will be adopting a forever loyal furry, best friend.

If you think Patty would be a good choice for your situation, please submit an application for consideration.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Patty, a Hamilton 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 Hamilton, or seeking a Rat Terrier dog from a breeder in Hamilton.

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