|Rescue Me ID: 16-05-02-00592Deacon (male)|
This adorable fellow is ready to find a forever-snuggle buddy! Within days of being fostered, Deacon picked up a handful of basic commands that help him be a great housemate. Worried about dirty paws in the house but love dogs? Deacon has learned to 'sit' and give you his 'left paw' then 'right paw' to wipe off before heading back to his chosen snuggle spot (most likely your lap). Deacon can even cover himself up with his blanket at night! Deacon does great on a leash, has never had an accident at his foster home, and knows how to respond to 'go potty' when outside. He gets along great with the other pup in our household and seems to look up to her for direction, so we think he'd make a good side-kick for another canine pal. Deacon doesn't mind cats and although he is curious about them he seems to respect that they are generally larger than he is! We suspect there were people in Deacon's past who weren't kind to him but he really enjoys being treated like a loved member and will do well with someone willing to be patient with him as he adjusts to living in his home.

|Rescue Me ID: 16-04-16-00079Rosie (female)|
Hi I'm Rosie. I am a 3 year old Rat Terrier. I am a happy friendly doggy that likes to be wherever my foster mom is. I follow her everywhere. I don't love my crate. I sleep in my foster sister's bed with her every night. I will go in my crate, but I whine and bark for a while before I settle down, but I always settle down eventually. My foster mom gives me little treats to eat and chew on in the crate. I might not be best for apartment living since my barking will get annoying to the neighbors if I am crated. My foster mom usually takes me everywhere she can since I am such a good girl and i love car rides. I am house trained and I love running around in my back yard. Boy can I jump. I have a vertical of about 4.5 feet. I haven't tried to jump the fence though. I love chewing on squeaky toys and my favorite game is playing fetch in the house with my little piggy toy. I am a good listener too. I do what my foster mom tells me....most of the time. I really love sleeping and snoring on the couch with people. I am good with children, and small dogs. I haven't been introduced to big dogs yet, or cats. Adoption fee is $225 Applications can be filled out at www.fchsnc.org/adoptable-dogs (Less)

|Rescue Me ID: 16-04-07-00440Luigi (male)|
I call him my 'Crotchety Old Man' but he's a little love bug. He's just so scared of everything. More loyal than most of us deserve - he waited for his people to come back for him for 5 days after they dropped him off. For someone with other dogs to adopt him, it'll take a strong pack leader. I've got him to the point that he interacts with 12 others in the same home but he's not happy about it.

|Animal ID: D-15-080Sundae Rose (female)|
Sundae is a gorgeous girl with unique brown, black, and white markings - she's got the coloring of an ice cream sundae with fudge and caramel sauce! She's got a sweet face with black freckles and a black mark on one cheek that looks like a paint brush stroke. Sundae's a skinny girl with long, lanky legs. Sundae is happy to be anything you want her to be...except homeless! She likes to spend her days wrestling with her foster brother, munching on antlers, and cuddling on the couch. She knows how to sit, down, and wait, and loves to run in the dog park. Even when she's not quite sure what you're talking about, you can tell she just wants to make you happy! She can be crated, but would love some extra TLC (and peanut butter!) to help smooth the transition. She is also working very hard at walking politely on a leash with the help of her favorite hot dogs. She is house trained. (Less)

|Animal ID: 1616Charlie (male)|
If Charlie could speak, he'd tell you he's ready to leave the past where it belongs and embrace the future! That's because this 25-lb. 5-year-old Rat Terrier/Corgi mix has learned that most people can still be trusted, even though he lost the only home he'd ever known when his owner no longer had time for him. Charlie and his foster family have worked hard to heal his broken heart and now he spends his days making up for lost time! Charlie has a funny personality and the goofy energy of a young pup, and in fact he does love to speak--in an endearing grumble in which he'll converse with you on any topic. He also loves to 'help' with many household chores (dinner and laundry are his favorites), 'ask' for a walk or car ride (he's a master at leash walking and LOVES to go anywhere!), chew on a bone, patrol the backyard, or partake of his newest pastime--playing with his canine foster sisters! When he's had his fill of fun, he'll likely be found snoring on your lap or next to you on the couch. While day-to-day activities are a breeze for him, a few situations can make Charlie fearful. For one, crates can be frightening, but his foster family has worked with him to desensitize him to a crate. He now happily eats meals in one and will go in for a treat and wait patiently to be let him out when he's finished. Nevertheless, he can panic when crated if he can't see a person or another dog, so he can't be left in a crate during the day at this point in his training. (Fortunately he's house trained and trustworthy when left home alone.) Charlie is also insecure around large, assertive male dogs, yet having a canine companion helps him learn the rules of the home while providing him with a playmate, so he'd be happiest with a female or a smaller, easy-going male dog. Cats intrigue him so much that he makes himself a pest to even the most dog-savvy felines; a home without one is likely best, though he is slowly learning his manners around kitties. He's also improving his manners around children, but sudden loud noises, commotion, or grabby hands can sometimes cause him to panic; a home without children under age 12 would be best for him. Are you dog savvy? Can you see a spunky, talkative guy in your future? Then Charlie's ready for your embrace! He just needs to know that forever really means forever this time. If you're of a similar opinion and willing to earn his trust, you'll have the most faithful and loyal companion ever!

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