Betty female

2017-05-14

Location: Florida

Our beautiful Betty 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. After arriving at her foster home, Betty was shy and withdrawn for the first 2 days, then she ventured out to explore and learn about inside living. Once Betty realized she was in for only good things now, she started to follow her fostermom around the house. Pregnant when she was rescued, Betty gave birth to 4 beautiful boys on May 9, 2017. After her babies are weaned, Betty will begin heartworm treatment (in July). She will be available for adoption sometime in the fall of 2017. You can find more pictures of Betty here in her album. Donations toward Betty's future vet care and expenses are graciously accepted here at this link.

Molly Brown female

2017-06-15

Location: Oklahoma

Seniors for Seniors Candidate
Molly Brown Ratbone is unsinkable! She was rescued from a kill shelter in Oklahoma. Molly is between 7 and 10 years old (our vets says 7, the shelter said 10), and weighs only 9 pounds (she's a little pudgy). She has a half-tail with a little kink near the end - probably natural. Molly is tolerant of other dogs, and will even play with persistent ones, but it is obvious that she was once an only dog - and that's how she prefers things; she tries to ignore the kitties in her foster home. We have not had her around children, but with her timid nature we feel that Molly would be happiest in an adults only home. Shortly after her arrival, Molly had a dental, so her teeth are healthy and clean. This little girl is crate trained, house broken, and very sweet and loving. She would be the perfect partner for a single person or a couple who loves to read, watch TV, and putter around the yard. You can see more pictures of our Molly Brown here in her photo album.

Lani female

2014-07-30

Location: Florida

Seniors for Seniors Candidate
Lani is short for Solana, which is a Native American word for sunshine. Itís 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, Laniís 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.

Sugar Mama female

2017-08-12

Location: Florida

Seniors for Seniors Candidate
This is Sugar Mama, an 8 to 10 year old purebred Rat Terrier. Sugar Mama came from a hoarding situation. In the pictures shown on her intake shelter listing, her sad and shut-down eyes broke our hearts. When we picked her up from the volunteer transport, and we saw how INCREDIBLY SWEET she is, we were instantly under her spell. Though it may be true that older, obese dogs aren't as "adoptable" as young small ones, there certainly hasn't been anyone sweeter than this fine lady. She will literally knock her human adult foster family members over to give them kisses when they bend down to love on her. Sugar, Sugs, Sugar Lumps. Sugar Mama is very dog friendly, and loves kitties. She currently weighs about 30 pounds, but is on a diet & exersize program to help her get healthy and fit. Sugar CAN be shy with new people, but once they get close to her they'd better PREPARE TO GET KISSES!!! This girl is a GEM!
