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 After arriving at her foster home, Betty was shy and withdrawn for the first 2 days, then she ventured out to explore and learn about inside living.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.

Cricket Lee female

2016-05-02

Adopted!

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. 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.

Thistle female

2017-03-01

Adopted!

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 donít 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?

Harley female

2017-05-14

Location: Florida

This is an affectionate, lively and inquisitive youngster. Harley likes to gather all the toys in the house around her wherever she may be. She also enjoys chasing lizards in the back yard. Once introduced to the doggy door, and observing how the other resident dogs used it, Harley slips through it like she always knew how. Harley snuggles in the big bed all night long; she's a real love bug. Ideally, we would like to see her in a home with another young playful dog, as she tries to engage the older dogs at her foster home in play, but they're not interested. Harley does okay with cats, as long as they stand their ground; if they get startled and run, then of course she will chase them. Harley is about 1 year old, and weighs around 9 pounds. Her foster family says "all in all, Harley is a joy to have in our household". To see more pictures of Harley, please click this link.
