Woody's Story...
location: Clearwater, FL

We would like to introduce Woody, a calm and quiet soul who is desperately looking for a person and a home to call his own. He has expressive eyes and very thick and soft fur. Woody came to Ratbone as a stray and in horrible shape – bad teeth, choking and coughing, and even screaming in pain at times. After much time and expense Woody is a new dog. He’s learned to trust humans and he gets along beautifully with the female dog in his foster home. Woody adores going for a walk; for Woody, walks are even better than food. You don’t have to be an athlete to keep up with him because he's more of a stroller than sprinter. Woody likes both kibble and soft foods (with missing teeth, vet suggested soft) and every night reminds his foster family when 8:30 Treat Time arrives. Woody likes to snuggle with his fostermom, but he is intimidated by his large male fosterbrother. As a result, he spends a lot of time alone and looking out the window, as if waiting for his forever family to arrive. Woody's foster family believes no one will truly see the full potential of Woody until he is in an environment where he feels 100% secure – he has moments of security where he will run and play, but mostly he is protective of himself. Woody is housebroken and will sit and give you paw. He will sleep in a dog bed or the human bed, if you invite him. We don’t know Woody's true age, but believe that he is a senior. He has medication for pain management, but has not needed it lately. Woody wears a collar for ID but a harness for walking, due to a collapsing trachea. Can you give this gentle soul a second chance at happiness? He will reward you as a superior snuggle partner, walking buddy, and a big “thank you” in those wonderfully expressive eyes. You can see more photos here and his video here.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Woody, 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.
