CongRATulations to the Burke family!
Nikki was a big surprise to her fostermom because of both her size and how quickly she fell in love with her! Nikki is a standard rat terrrier, at 22lbs, and is the largest Rat Terrier her fostermom has ever seen, although the standard-size dogs are common throughout the South and on the West Coast. She came into ResQ along with a tiny toy rattie, so the size difference was amazing. But like most standards, she is very loving and sweet, and wrapped her fostermom around her little paw. She was a perfect back seat driver the long drive home. Nikki is well trained, and is a good listener, obeys commands and plays fetch and gives paw! Nikki is housebroken and would love nothing but to be by your side, whatever you might be doing! She knows which toys are her toys and only needs to be told once when she does something unacceptable. Nikki is perfect on a leash. She managed to escape her escape- proof kennel to try to be with her foster family, but she did stay in the stockade fence yard until they returned. Good Girl! She’s young, at 1 ½ years old, and is full of RATTITUDE! For more pictures of Nikki, check his album often: Click Here
