CongRATulations to the Jonson family!

Zoe is a 15-month-old Rattie. She is a very energetic young lady and would really like to be part of an active family. Her prey drive is very high so she would be a good candidate for Agility or Flyball. She gets along with the two Ratties in her foster home and does fine with dog-savvy cats, although it wouldn’t be advised to have small pets like mice, rats, hamsters, or guinea pigs, which could end up being her lunch that are within her reach. Zoe would be fine in a home with older mature kids. Zoe has PKD (Polycystic Kidney Disease); her current blood work and urinalysis show that her kidney function is in the normal range. Her condition is currently stabilized. She may need to be on a low-protein diet for the rest of her life and may need to be on an herbal supplement. Zoe loves life and is always up for a new adventure. Are you ready to bring this little ball of energy into your life? Please see more pictures of Zoe — she’s adorable! Please note: Zoe needs to be adopted within driving distance of her foster home.

    Would you fly her to New Jersey? I have a male, 4 yr old Toy Fox Terrier, so I’m used to their “antics”. I’m in the healthcare field and am very familiar with PKD.

    Hi Donna — we talked to her foster mom, and we think it’d be best to keep her off airplanes. Other dogs can be flown, depending on the application, though!
