Nibblets female

2016-03-30

Location: Kansas

This is little Nibblets, aka: Nibs, who can bounce like a kangaroo. She will leap for your arms if you invite her, no need to bend over to pick her up. This attention loving girl is 6-7 years old, about 11 pounds, with a long tail that wags enthusiastically. She loves sitting in a chair with someone and being petted. Nibblets will sleep quietly in the chair behind her fostermom during “computer time”. She would like to share the bed with her person, but is very good about sleeping in her own bed if told “go to bed”. Nibs loves chasing a ball or, even better, a stuffed toy, and she is good about bringing it back. She doesn’t really want to let it go, but will with a “give it” command then she bounces around, waiting for another throw. Nibblets gets along with the other dogs in her foster home and she likes the cats, who she will try to play with sometimes. She can get excited when playing, so might not be great for small children, but should be fine with school age children. Nibs is quite bright and may not work well with a fence under 6 feet; she has been able to go over a 4 foot fence (if there's anything nearby that she can use for a springboard). It is unknown if she can climb chain-link. Nibblets is not inclined to run off, but rather climbs in an effort to get back into the house. While she is well housebroken, Nibs seems to have less “holding power” than average and she is often unable to keep her crate clean overnight. For that reason she is not crated at night, but has access to a dog door, and will take herself out during the night. A dog door would be very important to her in a new home unless someone is willing to get up during the night to let her out, possibly more than once.

Dottie female

2017-05-14

Location: Florida

Our beautiful Dottie comes to us from a farm in South Florida. A group of Rat Terriers were living outside, and the people wanted someone to get the dogs off the property. Dottie is a gorgeous girl, who came to us with two 10 week old puppies. Dottie was a very good mom, and loved her puppies very much. Dottie is a dog that needs to learn to trust people; living outside with very little human interaction was hard on her. Dottie is mild mannered and very sweet, and she's only 2 years old. Treats really win her over, and she loves to be scratched behind the ears. Dottie is crate trained, and she is learning about leash manners. She has a beautiful soul, and you can see her soul in her gorgeous eyes. To see more pictures of Dottie, please use this link.

Snickers female

2017-04-09

Location: Indiana

Hello, I'm Snickers. I am 6 or 7 years old, spayed, up to date on shots, and heartworm negative (I did have them, but my vet has cured me!). I lived in the back yard of a home in Owensboro, KY for my whole life. My owners never gave me preventative for heartworms, so when I got sick they dumped me at the shelter. The ladies at the shelter knew that I needed a special place, so they sent me to Indiana. I am black, white & tan, very long legged, and I am about 30 pounds of solid muscle. I love sitting on laps, catching mice, and exploring. I have a sweet disposition, but might do best in a home with no other dogs. I was so neglected that I crave all the attention I can get. I walk well on a leash, and will very happily sleep in your bed at night. My fostermom - and everyone that has met me so far - thinks I am beautiful and smart. I love riding in the car and will sit on the back seat like you're my chauffeur! You can see another photo of me here in my album. Do you have room in your heart for me?

Lil Red female

2017-05-14

Location: Florida

Here begins the story of Lil Red Ratbone. A fellow animal advocate saw her darting in and out between moving trucks in the Redlands (a popular dumping area in Miami). It took Isabel THREE weeks to catch Lil Red and get her to safety. This little pipsqueak is a DOLL, and she's currently enjoying the heck out of life in her foster home. Lil Red is a very small girl, and she LOVES food - probably from her days of having to scavenge for food. Lil Red is sweet, but she can be shy with new people. She'd need a family who would be willing to help her transition from her foster home to a new home.Lil Red is 1 to 2 years old, and weighs just under 10 pounds. To see more pictures of Lil Red Ratbone, please use this link to her album.
