    Jack is the sweetest thing to ever walk this Earth. He and his sister, Jill, were surrendered into a high kill shelter. They had them on the euthanasia list. We now have them both, safe and sound. They are looking for a forever home where they can be together (we are trying not to separate them). They would be great with families with kids, elder people, other dogs and cats, you name it. They love everyone and everything. Please let us know if you are interested in these sweet babies.

    Lacey is a very lucky girl.

With lots of TLC and proper meds, Lacey is alive and doing well! She is so sweet and affectionate. She does not like a crate but preferrs to sleep at the foot of the bed. She is mostly house broke but with all the health issues, she has had a few accidents in the house. She is a wonderful dog and would make a great companion for anyone. She would be great for an elderly person or couple, and would do good in an apartment ... (Read More)or small house. (Less)

Health: Vaccinations Current 

    Hi! I'm Tripp! I'm a 3 year old Rat Terrier, and boy do I love to cuddle! I am so calm. I'll just sit in your lap and let you rub my ears for hours! I've got good house manners, and I love my foster brothers and sisters. They are all different sizes from a little Chihuahua to a big coon hound! I get along great with everyone. Not sure about cats, though. I haven't spent much time with them. I love kids! I think they are neat. I mostly just sniff them. They would be neat to live with. I love to go for walks, too. I mind my foster mom really well on a leash! She says I'm a good boy! I do have to tell you guys something, though. I'm a peg ... (Read More)leg. I am missing one of my back feet. But i'm still fast! I keep up wtih the rest of my foster pack just fine! I even use my little nub leg to help me balance. I hope you don't think it's a bad thing. My foster mommy says it's 'endearing.' I don't know what that means, but she doesn't seem to mind. I hope you won't either! I think I'd be a good fit in just about any family. I am calm, kennel trained, house trained, and on a good schedule. I spend the daytime out in the sunshine in my fenced in backyard, and I come in and snuggle when my foster parents get home. I hope I get to live somewhere like that. Just sunshine and cuddles, all day! My foster mom wants to make sure that I'm the rigth fit for your home. So, if you're interested in spending more time with me, reach out to her! She'll talk to you about me, and maybe do an interview and trial stay. That will give us a chance to get to know each other and make sure it's a good thing for both of us. Then, if it goes well, I'll come join you in my Forever Home! That sounds SO nice! I can't wait! Rachel is my foster mom, and her email address is RachelLHBaker@gmail.com. Let her know if you want to know more about me. You can also check me out on Facebook. Just look up 'Tripp the Peg Leg.' I think I'm famous! :) See you later! --Tripp (Less)

She loves to ride in a car nicely, sneak kisses I should add all while she takes in the sights. She enjoys going everywhere you go as your best buddy would. She especially enjoys going into pet stores in search of the best of the best in treats while scoping out ever isle and sniffing her way through it all. She will ... (Read More)sit and give paw and may even do a back flip for a cookie or two. She is snuggly, cuddly and everything in between. She is smart as a whip so she can be trained to do anything. She will sit on command, do touch and is learning 'shake'. She loves to play and will run and chase her foster mom's two dogs. She has unbelievable amounts of energy, but also knows when it's time to unwind. She lives in a tiny package no more the 32 pounds and more than likely will remain her little size. She doesn't whine or speak too loud, but will let you know when she has to go in a fury! She is a lovely little dog with so much love and affection for all, dogs, cats and people big and small! Give this little girl a home she deserves one of her own. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Rat Terrier in Alabama
    Rat Terrier Dogs can make good pets in Alabama if they match your IifestyIe. The Rat Terrier is a small breed of hunting dog also sometimes known as a Feist. Rat Terriers are vivacious, playful, and bold. This breed is great with children. Adult Rat Terriers adapt well to adoption. Rat Terriers are very smart and trainable. This breed can live in an apartment but needs plenty of vigorous exercise each day. Rat Terriers enjoy romping in a fenced yard, but because they are enthusiastic diggers, fences should be buried or reinforced around the base.
