Quinn's Story... This puppy is located and fostered in Tennessee. Minimum Adoption Donation $200 in TN, $250 plus transportation fee for out of state adoptions. Meet the mighty little Quinn! Quinn loves to play with you and his toys and is learning puppy manners. He ... (Read More)also loves a good game of tug, and will chase a toy and bring it back to your lap if you sit on the floor with him. He enjoys a good romp outside and is inquisitive of his surroundings. Quinn has intelligent little brown eyes that seem to look right through to your heart. When he's all tuckered out from playing and melts into his foster mom's lap to sleep, she can't think of a better place to be. Little Quinn wants to be friends with the other dogs in his foster home, and even though they are kind of big and intimidating, he wiggles up to them with puppy licks. Quinn is trained to use potty pads and, if clean pads are kept in the same place, he will seek them out when he feels the need. Quinn is beginning his crate training, which will help to housetrain him. He's about 12 weeks old and weighs 15 pounds, with an adorable half length bob tail. We are guessing on his breed mix, but his foster mom assures us that he is 100% fully adorable. Now Quinn has a wish and that is to find his forever home. He likes where he is, but his foster mom has promised him there is an even better home and family out there. Are you the one?

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