Rescue Me ID: 17-04-17-00033Shadow (female)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Shadow is super friendly, energetic, and affectionate pup that was taken in by PAWS after being a stray that spent time wandering her neighborhood eating from trash receptacles and being fed by neighbors. When volunteers approached her location, she came running up to us wanting to get in our car. It was apparent she was starving not only for food, but also attention. She was a little scared of the car ride, but eventually settled down. We believe she will come to love rides if she knows she's not going to be abandoned. She may have some Min-Pin in her. Shadow is a very active and playful dog whose exercise needs are average to ... (Read More)moderately high. Her foster has two other Dachshunds she gets along well with. She likes the fenced-in yard and hasn't tried to jump over or climb out of. She loves food, walks, treats, and TOYS, and empties the toy box as soon as it is refilled. Shadow hardly barks, has no digging issues, and only chews her toys to enjoy, but not destroy. Shadow is very excited to see her 'person' when she comes home after being away for a while. She absolutely LOVES sitting in a lap getting her head scratched. She is housebroken and uses the doggie door to go outside. She is crate trained for the night without a sound and occasional short periods of time during the day, up to two hours. Shadow is working on leash training and hangs back at times or pulls a little, but making remarkable progress. Her foster is working on obedience commands such as 'Heel', 'Sit', and 'Stay' and is seeing good results after only a short time. Shadow has some minor skin irritations due to fleas and poor nutrition, but she's currently being treated for that and is healing quickly. We recommend an experienced dog owner with a multi dog household and a fenced-in yard. She bolts easily through open doors, but doesn't go far and returns to foster in seconds. She would not be good around farm animals, such as chicken, as she chases them, but larger animals may be OK. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-11-23-00145Finley (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Finley, who we believe is a Chihuahua/Rat Terrier mix, ended up in a rural county shelter where he was absolutely terrified. Thankfully they called and asked if we could come to the shelter and evaluate Finley to see if we could take him into our adoption program. Although he was very scared we decided that we would take him in. As soon as he got in the car of our employee his personality completely changed. He sat in her lap all the way to the clinic and even gave her the tiniest bit of a kiss. Finley walks very nicely on a leash and loves treats. He would probably do best in a fairly quiet home. If you are interested in this pup, ... (Read More)please visit our website at www.tysorvet.net and click on the adoption tab where you will find a link to our adoption application.
