Personality: Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Arthritis 

    Luciana Germano Hi, do you know anyone who clipe foster my 11 year old female rat terrier? She's been with me for 10 years but I'm working full time and she's been fragile and attacked by my 3 year-old dog. I worry about both but feel that it would be easier to place Lady in foster care since she's not aggressive. I'll pay for her expenses - I just need someone to walk her and love her. Luciana Nielson

    This is Baxter. He is an 18 month old rat terrier mix who is a ball of energy and very friendly, smart, and sweet. I rescued him back in November from Mecklenburg County Animal Control, where he had spent most of his life. Unfortunately, due to illness and my job, I've been unable to take care of him properly. Currently, he's kept in his crate while I'm at work. In October I will be travelling for work and won't be at home for three weeks out of the month. I'd like to find a person/family who has time to spend with him, playing with him and taking him on long walks; someone with a backyard where he could run around in would be ideal. He ... (Read More)loves people and other animals so I think he would fit right in with a family with another dog. Again, Baxter is HIGH energy so I want a family that will be able to keep up with him. Baxter weighs 20 lbs and is up to date on all of his shots, has been fixed, and is microchipped. He comes with his crate and all of his accessories/toys. (Less)

Einstein would eat all day if it wouldn't wreck his ... (Read More)diet. What is best for Einstein is routine. Otherwise, his diabetes is under control and can be managed easily! Won't you consider giving this spunky little man a forever home, where he can run, play, and be loved! (Less)
