CongRATulations to the Sandifer family!

Noel’s mom, Lady, is a Rat Terrier. And going by Noel’s looks, it’s possible her dad was a Dachshund, but she is not short-legged. Noel was born Dec 7, 2009 in a Texas shelter. Right now she is about 10.5″ tall and is just under 10 lbs. Noel has been in her current foster home for three weeks with three other dogs and a cat and there are no problems with any of them. She does bark at the cat sometimes, but never tries to chase. She plays with whatever dog is willing (and tries to play with the ones that aren’t!). Noel has the most fabulous personality. She is happy and outgoing, her tail NEVER stops wagging. Noel has visited a very busy local park and greeted everyone she could from about age 2+. She is not fearful and shows no aggression. One of the older dogs does not like to be bothered, but she pays no attention when he growls at her. She has happily greeted any visitors to the house, which are mostly teenage boys. She is playful, but also affectionate. Loves her toys and also to take a snooze in a lap. Noel does not chew excessively – no destroying of shoes or mouthing human hands. She is making progress on house training and trying to learn to like her crate. She has learned some basic training and seems to catch on easily. Her personality suggests she would be happy in any family situation, though we have not seen her around young children yet. She has a healthy appetite and is not a picky eater. Please see more pictures of this gorgeous girl!

    Hello, I love this puppy. My first Rat Terrier was the same mix an she looks like my Tippy did. She made me love RT and would love to adopt Noel. I have a rattie now named Sadie and have been wanting a friend for her. Please let me know what I need to do so I can try and adopt this wonderful puppy.
