ERIC's Story...
Meet Eric. He is named after Prince Eric from the Little Mermaid movie and it has been his name for his entire life, we would like him to keep it. Eric is 4 years of age, neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and his back dew claws have been removed per the veterinarians suggestion. Since Eric is a rat terrier he has a pretty high prey drive, he barks at rabbits, rats, mice and birds. Eric is a talker. Eric is OK with cats. He is OK with dogs also but prefers not hang out with them. Eric is standoffish to men, it takes a little while, a week or so, and then he becomes more comfortable. He likes kids. I'd really love for Eric to have a fenced in yard as he enjoys his foster home yard so much. It is necessary for Eric to have a calm environment to live in or it is possible he can have a stress seizure. He is energetic and enjoys walks. He also enjoys car rides. Eric's adoption fee is $325.00. A home check is required and an application for adoption with references is required.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

ERIC, a Hamden Rat Terrier/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Rat Terrier/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) for sale in Hamden, or seeking a Rat Terrier/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) dog from a breeder in Hamden.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Hamden 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 Hamden 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/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) breeders who help with Rat Terrier/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Hamden paves the way for another one to be saved.
