Cricket Lee female

2016-05-02

Adoption Pending!

CongRATs to the Pixley family!

Location: Indiana

My name is Cricket Lee, and I am about 2 years old. I came to my foster home in south Indiana from Davies County, KY. My fostermom received no info about me, so she can only tell you what she has personally learned about me so far! I am spayed, up to date on shots, heartworm negative, walk nicely on a leash, and I am housebroken. I am a "people pleaser", but I don't like dogs and cats much. I love to sit on my fostermom's lap or snuggle in the bed or chair with her. I am an explorer, and I love look all day long for mice and other varmints. I'm very fast; I caught 2 mice in one day, and I could probably catch a squirrel! I love to explore, but I will come right back when called. My fostermom says I am smart and very pretty. I have a long tail and big ears that stand straight up. I also like to go on car rides! You can see more pictures of me in my photo album. Do you have room in your heart for me?

Lani female

2014-07-30

Location: Florida

Seniors for Seniors Candidate
Lani is short for Solana, which is a Native American word for sunshine. It’s the perfect name for a gal who loves to lay by the pool and nap in the sun. While retired and living in Florida now, Lani’s beginnings were quite different. Through research we have found that she is the result of the breeding of two NRTA foundation stock Rat Terriers. Her bloodline is 71.87% Decker. Her dam is Sycamore Flats Jackie and her sire is Sycamore Flats Tuffy. Lani was born 4/26/03, is 17.5 inches at the withers, and a skinny 25 pounds. She is sweet and gentle. Lani gets along well with her foster siblings but has been unsuccessful at getting them to play with her. She is a finicky eater, and requires a grain free diet to avoid skin irritation. During Lani's first couple of months in foster care she lived with cats and wanted to chase them, but she did not harm them. More photos of Lani are available here.

Thistle female

2017-03-01

Adoption Pending!

CongRATs to the Lampe family!

Location: Nebraska

Hi! My name is Thistle, but I just go by Tissy for short. I am nine months young and ready to have fun! My favorite things are cuddling with my foster parents and playing with the other dogs in the house. I love other little dogs like me and big dogs are okay too as long as they are calm. They gotta understand that that I am only seven pounds! Cats are okay too, but not as fun as my dog sisters! I have not spent much time around children, but I could probably learn to live with them as long as they are calm and gentle with me. New people are a little scary to me still. I was not socialized when I was a baby, so people can still be intimidating if I don’t know them. My trust is starting to grow, though. Since I got a late start, I am still working on potty training. I am getting better with practice! I really like to please my people, as I'm still gaining my confidence. I sleep through the night, in bed, without any accidents, and I am crate trained. I am so excited for the day I find my new forever home. To see more pictures of me please click here and visit my album. Would you like to be my family?

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

2017-03-01

Adopted!

CongRATs to the Field family!

Location: Florida

Dottie is 3 years old and weighs only 8.5 pounds. She came into rescue when her owner passed away. The family managed to find homes for the other dogs, but not little Dottie, so she came to rescue. Dottie is a very sweet, loving girl, and she gets along with dogs, cats, and she just loves people. She is the type of dog who likes to crawl up in laps and slather people with kisses, so her adopter would need to be able to handle loads of Dottie Kisses. Dottie likes to sleep curled up next to her person, or on the pillow next to their head. She really needs to be loved on, and she needs to give love too. Dottie is crate trained and LOVES her toys! She likes to grab a few toys and run into her crate to stash them. From her previous life, she was pee pad trained, so that is what she became used to. Dottie will go potty in the yard, but is most used to the pads. To see more pictures of Dottie, please use this link to access her album.
