Zuzu male

2017-01-26

Adopted!

CongRATs to the Hofemeier family!

Location: Oregon

Seniors for Seniors Candidate
Zuzu is an American Hairless Terrier who had lived with her elderly owner and an AHT "sister" until a few months ago. When their owner died, the dogs both went to the local shelter, and the other dog was adopted. Zuzu is 10 years old and in excellent health. She is gentle and very sweet. Zuzu will follow you everywhere once she gets to know you, and is good with other dogs... and mostly uninterested in cats. Zuzu is house broken and very well behaved. This little 15 pound dog is a treasure. To see more of Zuzu's pictures please click here.

Poco Bill male

2011-01-16

Location: Kansas

Poco Bill is a wild bandito, with relatives from South of the Border. He is a lot of little Terrier in a 7 pound package, with a little Chihuahua thrown in for spice. And he does have spice! Bill can be a sassy little fellow, and he doesn't care how big the other dog is - he thinks he is bigger. For this reason Little Bill would do best as an only dog or with a very mellow, non-dominant dog. Bill LOVES to play, and stuffed (or unstuffed) toys are fascinating to him. He will bite, chew, chase and shake the stuffing-free squirrel, and he is not opposed to beating up a fully stuffed Santa. Bill also enjoys chasing the other dogs (mostly giving them attitude), but deprived of dog company he will play happily by himself or chew on a rawhide. Poco Bill has been very good about keeping his crate clean, and he is good about using the dog door - even though he was scared of it at first. He has had an issue with lifting his leg inappropriately; having come to rescue as an intact dog who is probably 4-5 years old, he had time to learn some bad habits. But Bill is working on improving these, though his fostermom has to be FAST, because he is. He is truly a character, and if you've had a little experience with dogs this one could be a great companion. Since he's a little fiesty, he is not recommended for small children. Bill is not really aggressive to cats, but could drive them crazy trying to boss them around. For more pictures of Poco Bill, pleaseclick here.

Patrick male

2016-01-28

Location: Florida

Patrick is a very special Rattie. When we first saw him, he was cowering in the back of his cage at a high kill shelter in Miami, FL. Not much was known about him aside from the fact that there was something wrong with his left eye. He was not able to see out of the eye and it was bulging out a little. Nothing extreme, but he needed to see a specialist. We got him out and immediately he bonded closely to his foster mom. She noticed that he held up his right knee when walking briskly so that was also evaluated; Patrick had a very bad luxating patella (knee) and it needed surgery. His eye would only get worse, so we had a specialist remove his eye and work on his knee. Pat recovered nicely from his surgeries, acting like nothing happened. He no longer cowers in fear, but now has a VERY brave persona. He protects his fostermom from critters like squirrels, cats and large dogs. He is quite the character - loving, affectionate and brave. We are looking for a special home for Pat. He loves long walks and to cuddle on the couch. Pat would prefer to be the only doggie in the home because he wants all the attention to himself.

Badger male

2007-03-14

Location: Kansas

Seniors for Seniors Candidate
One look at Badger's face will tell you this guy is just overflowing with personality. There may be a little Boston Terrier in his lineage, as he has a very short "corkscrew" tail, undershot jaw, and black and white coloring. His undershot jaw gives him a bit of a pugnacious look and his character sometimes matches. He had been surrendered because no one had time for him anymore and he was tied up in the back yard all alone. Badger gets along fine with 12 out of 13 foster Rat Terrier "siblings" but took a dislike to one, whom he is determined to whoop every time he gets in the same room. Because of this chance of aggression if the personalities clash, Badger needs to be an only dog or with a non-dominant female. He is 7 years old and around 15 very solid pounds. He is a charming fellow -- likes people and is fine with children but untrustworthy around small animals, including cats. Badger will sleep quietly in a crate but will complain if left in the crate while everyone else is active. He is housebroken, using a dog door reliably. Despite his rather "tough guy" appearance, Badger's personality will win you over quickly when you met him. To see more pictures of Badger, pleaseclick here.
