Our vet has recommended that all dogs under 6 months not to spay or neuter the pups because they are too young and their bodies are not fully developed. Adoption donation includes transport and all vaccinations, except for the Lyme—therefore, the dogs will not need to get any vaccinations for the first
ADOPTED ON 04-28-20: Pumpkin is a one year old, 10 lb. female Wire-Hair Terrier mix. She is housetrained, except in rainy weather. If it rains, she will need to be escorted outside with a family member. She is such a little joy, she prances around and has made friends with all the dogs in her CT foster home. Pumpkins foster thinks she would do well with cats because they are all bigger than her and well really, just about any dog in her foster home is.
Pumpkin just loves everybody and would do great with children, due to her small size, however, we feel that the children should be over the age of seven. She loves to lay in your lap and snuggle but she also loves to explore. She makes herself right at home like many little dogs do. I would expect parents to supervise their children and make sure that the children will be gentle with her.
Pumpkin’s foster mom says that she will be a hard one to let go but she will be a joy for the right family, her foster knows that she needs a forever home. For whatever reason Pumpkin came into rescue, her previous owners either abandoned her or dumped her. Pumpkin shows us in her foster home that she has moved on with her life and focuses on play—no matter whatever happen to her that she came into rescue.
Pumpkin is low-maintenance. She likes to take one or two short walks a day and enjoy some playtime as well, but otherwise, she is content snuggling on the couch with his foster mom and tells us that she is quite the love bug. This little gal is a delight and would make a wonderful addition to any family. If she is adopted by a family with kids, other dogs, or taking the role as “only child”, Pumpkin promises to deliver lots of love and companionship. All she needs in return is plenty of the same!
ABOUT THE BREED: The Wire-Haired Terrier is a saucy little hot she is known to have the world’s biggest personality stashed inside that tiny body. That larger-than-life personality makes him appealing to men and women alike. And watch out: They are so quick-witted and cunning and sweet, you might find yourself doing an overtime shift of petting, scratching and cuddling.
