CongRATulations to the Sestito family!
Meet ‘Tini’ Martini! She’s a classic-looking little rat terrier lady; black and white with tan accents on her face. She is a type “B”, with shorter legs. At just about 11 lbs and 10″ tall, she lives up to the “Tini” nickname we have given her. Martini was turned into a Brooklyn, NY shelter when her owners were unable to keep her due to a landlord dispute. Tini was very friendly to everyone at the shelter, but didn’t know what was happening to her and she was unsure of the new surroundings and why she was there. After a few days in her foster home, she is coming alive, wagging her (full) tail and showing her true personality! She is estimated to be approximately 7 years old, but seems much younger. Tini is getting along with the other foster dogs in the home and can be cat scanned upon request. She is housebroken and is fine in the crate, too. Tini is good with older children and was perfect when she recently met a 5 year-old girl. She enjoys riding in the car or being carried around, and would much prefer your lap rather than the dog bed! Martini walks well on leash, too! This smart little girl listens well to basic commands like come, sit, go, lay down, and outside. She loves a good belly rub and is very affectionate. She is being fostered in Mastic Beach, NY and is enjoying all of suburbia, complete with squirrel chases in the backyard! Do you have room in your home & heart for a ‘Tini’ sweetheart of a gal?
