Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Abused/Neglected 

    Lady has been with our family for years. She is a very sweet dog, loves to walk and run outside and explore - also, she loves to lay down by an adult's foot and take really long naps. Lady needs a yard where she can run and use the bathroom as she is not good at waiting in the cage for long hours. She would be a perfect companion for someone who would stay home with her, take her to walks at the end of the day.

    BB is one of the sweetest girls you ever wanted to meet. He number one skill is sleeping close to you at night. Second would be sitting in your lap while you pet her. Unfortunately, as our family has grown so has the pet population. BB has not adapted well at all. We've even met with a behaviorist. BB needs to be an only dog. It was amazing to watch her shine with the trainer. The ideal placement would be retired or divorced person looking for a buddy.BB does not have a mean bone in her body. I cheked questionable with kids was because in her nervousness, i cant take anything for granted.
