The Canadian Hairless Terrier Association is responsible for all AHTs in Canada and will rescue any AHT in need in Canada. All CHTA breeders will take their own dogs back from a family who can no longer keep them. Any other AHT in need in Canada will be placed with a fosterhome who can foster and the AHT and prepare him/her for a new family. AHTs in our foster program are altered, up to date on vaccinations, HW tested and on preventative and microchipped. Once the foster family feels the AHT is ready for a new family, he/she will be available for adoption. At this time, we have no AHTs available for adoption. Please check this page from time to time for updates and/or pictures and bios of any rescued AHTs we may have available in Canada. If you need assistance with an AHT in need of rescue, or own an AHT and would like to find a new home through Canada AHT Rescue, please contact us
If we have no rescued AHTs in Canada, you may find rescued AHTs at Ratbone Rescues in the US. Please go to www.ratbonerescues.com and check their available foster dogs for any AHTs available for adoption.
Please note that you must fill in an application to apply for an AHT from either rescue group. References, interviews and home visit will be done prior to adopting an AHT from either rescue. Since AHTs are so rare in rescue applicants with documented allergies and a doctor’s letter are given priority. There are also many rescued Rat Terriers available though Ratbone Rescues. Rat Terriers are a very fine coated breed and may also be suitable for some families with allergies.
