CongRATulations to the Kaufman family!

Vito is a 1 yr old male Rat Terrier weighing about 15 lbs. He is housebroken and crate trained. Vito gets along well with other dogs and would love to have another dog to play with in his new home. We are not sure how he does with cats, but can have him “cat-scanned” upon request. Vito came to us from an animal control shelter in South Florida where he was scheduled to be euthanized due to lack of room. This boy is highly intelligent and eager to please. He is young and needs clear and firm direction and boundaries and is working on learning basic training commands and manners. He is a big snuggler that thinks he is a tiny lap dog. Vito is highly energetic and would do best in a home with a fenced yard so he can run around and burn off energy. He is sometimes frightened in new situations and environments and needs to be reassured. He will also do best in a home without small children as he is sometimes skittish and frightened by sudden noises and abrupt movements. Vito’s foster mom requests that his adoptive home is located within 100 miles of Babson Park. View more pictures of Vito!

    I am very interested in adopting Vito. He looks lovely and so cheerful!!! We have had 2 rat terriers in the past and have fallen in love with this breed. Our last little girl died at 13 from CHF. We miss her so much and have been looking for the perfect rat terrier to fill our home since last fall. Vito looks and sounds wonderful. Please contact me at the above e-mail.
