|Rescue Me ID: 16-08-22-00716Mimsy (female)|
Meet Mimsy. This is another pitiful girl who is displaced because of the death of her owner. She is currently being cared for by a stranger who over heard the family's need for help with this adorable girl. We don't have a lot of information about Mimsy's life before now, so we are guessing she is a 12-ish-year-old rat terrier. She is is a petite thing weighing only 10 pounds. Mimsy greets strangers with a bark then continues to wag her tail and offer kisses. Once she has really relaxed you get to see her true spirit. She is silly, fun, and super cuddly. Mimsy is great with other dogs. We believe she lived with dogs in the past, but she has also been around other dogs with her current caregiver. We also have learned that she does not like cats. Mimsy is good with children, even toddlers. However, she does expect them to be gentle and not to constantly want to pick her up. If that is understood, she loves to make kids her playmate with a game of chase of fetch. Mimsy has great house manners and is solidly housebroken. She does not need to be crated as she is totally trustworthy when left alone. Mimsy will be up to date on shots, heartworm negative, microchipped and spayed. Her fur is missing in places as she has recovered from a case of flea dermatitis. She might also need some glucosamine for her hips. He rear legs seem to be a little stiff, although nothing seems to slow her down. If you are interested in helping us help Mimsy please complete an adoption application on our website at www.pawswapofgreaterlafayette.com/adopting. Her adoption fee is $125. (Less)

|Rescue Me ID: 16-08-21-00128Taffy (female)|
Meet Taffy. This is a sweet little girl who, along with Trooper (also posted), has decided that attacking the neighbor's chickens is a fun sport. Since Taffy's current family does not want to or is not able to contain her, she must find a new home. We know that with her rat terrier and Jack Russell breeds there is always a possible instinct to not mix well with livestock. That doesn't, however, make her a bad dog. In fact, Taffy is a total sweetheart with everyone and everything else. Taffy is about 4 years old and full of energy. She loves to run and play. She also loves to explore which makes it a bad idea for her to be off leash when not contained in a fenced yard. She is pretty shy towards strangers with cameras, but will gladly perk up for pizza crust. Taffy has been raised around children. The current children in her family start around 4 years old. She is really great with them and never aggressive. She does try to get away from them if they want to pick her up too much, but we don't really blame her for that. Taffy has also been raised around other dogs. She likes to romp and play. As for cats, she has been around outside cats but we don't know how she would be with them indoors. Taffy will be fully up to date on vetting prior to adoption including spay, up to date on shots, heartworm tested, and microchipped. Taffy has been kept mostly outside or in a garage and has been reliably housebroken. She has never been crated but has been confined to a pen, although she quickly learned how to squeeze under it. If you would like to meet Taffy, then please complete an adoption application on our website at www.pawswapofgreaterlafayette.com/adopting. Her adoption fee is $150. (Less)

|Rescue Me ID: 16-06-20-00068Izabella (female)|
This sweet 12 yr old girl is Izabella. She and her sister were surrendered to a high-kill shelter when their owner went into a nursing home. Izabella's foster said she is adjusting but will sit by the front door for hours, perhaps thinking her owner will come back. This easy going, house trained girl just needs someone to love her. She was kept up to date on her vaccinations and had a blood profile done last fall that showed she was in excellent health. Her eyes are clear and seems younger than her 12 years. She is spayed, vaccinated, and heartworm tested. Her adoption fee is $100. Won't you please consider giving this little girl a home? Email for an application, email@example.com. (Less)

|Rescue Me ID: 16-05-23-00583 (female)|
Lexie is a pure bred Rat Terrier. She has had pups twice many years ago. She is smart, loyal and protective. Her one negative is that she may bite strangers or children if they run. She would make a great alarm system for someone with this need. She is not over weight and weighs about twenty pounds.

|Rescue Me ID: 16-02-09-00173Isabelle (female)|
Isabelle and a 4 year old Beagle need a good home. They have had one home, but the owners work a lot and they are in a cage for over 20 hours a day. They need a family and a fenced yard that will have someone at home most of the time.I will require that you pay half of the cost to have them spayed and microchipped.I was not able to add a photo, i can text it to you.

|Rescue Me ID: 15-10-12-00666Buzz (male)|
Buzz is a 6 year old Jack Russell Terrier/Rat Terrier mix. Housetrained. Neutered, up to date on vaccinations, microchipped. Adoption fee $150.00 Due to the high volume of emails received, we recommend you visit our website and fill out an adoption application. This does not obligate you to adopt, it just helps us determine if a certain dog is a good fit for your household. Adoption applications can be found at www.waldosmuttleycrew.org. Thank you! Buzz is such a sweet and fun little boy. He's very adaptable to new situations and is good with dogs and cats. He has the cutest little head tilt when you talk to him! He's very spry and pretty active for his age. He rides wonderfully in a car and loves to be held. He loves sleeping deep under the blankets of his foster mom's bed. We believe he would be ok in a home with older children. Buzz recently had an Epulis removed from his upper gum area and had to have the majority of his upper teeth removed. He is doing amazingly well with this and we are told he will be able to eat small kibble very soon! (Less)

|PIease Read Before Adopting a Rat Terrier in Indiana|
Rat Terrier Dogs can make good pets in Indiana 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.
