CongRATulations to the Adams family!

 Say hello to Mimsy.  She has had a rough life – living outdoors with no proper shelter, puppies freezing to death and lastly, heartworm treatment.  Despite all of this, she is a happy, bouncy and lovable little 2 year-old girl.  She is always wanting to play and tries her best to get the other older ratties in her foster home to play with her – therefore she would be happy with another playful pup as her companion.  When playtime is over, it’s up in her foster mom’s lap for snuggling.  She is 14 inches at the shoulder and weighs 16 pounds, so she’s perfectly-sized for a lap dog… She loves to play with her stuffies (stuffed animals) and chew on her nylabones.  She is a bit of a thief – she delights in stealing the socks out of your hands as you TRY to put them on your feet.  She dances on her back legs, swishes her tail from side to side and waves her front paws in the air when her foster mom comes in from work.  She is a bit timid about going outside alone to do her business and is happiest when the other ratties (or mom) go out with her.  She has had only 2 accidents since being with her current foster mom – she will go potty when outside but hasn’t learned how to let you know when she needs to go outside.  If kept on a regular schedule, she would do fine with housebreaking.  She has been cat scanned and showed only an interest to play.  Mimsy may be a bit “bouncy” for a small child but just perfect for 6 or 7 years old and above.  She is not hyper, just loves to play.  She would ideal for a lively house with kids and other pups as companions.  For photos and videos of Mimsy, click here:

    I’m just following up on the email I sent this a.m. regarding Mimsy. Haven’t heard from anyone yet.
    How has the potty training been going? Only having 2 mistakes so far is exceptional!
    Does she like to play with chew toys, etc?
    Your description of bouncy but not hyper fits what we are looking for. We currently have a male tri-color Rattie we adopted from Ratbone Rescues last September, and we believe he would love to have a pal. Please respond when you can.
    I know I will need to fill out an application to go any further, but just wanted to find out a little more info.
    If I need to fill it out prior to asking questions, just let me know.

    Thanks for replying and answering my questions. I tried to reply to “sender” but I think it may have gotten “lost” going back to Rat Terrier Resq?
    I filled out & submitted an application last night before you replied. The only thing I left incomplete was the exact addresses of the referrals. I only submitted name, city, state, & telephone #, everything else was completed in full.
    Do you know of any physical issues with Mimsy,…..any knee joints popping in & out.
    Is she a barker, or only when necessary, LOL!
    What are the small spots on her right side, is that just black hair spots or skin discoloring.
    We are located in Snellville, Georgia, so transporting won’t be an issue, I think I’m getting a little ahead of myself here.
    I take Roscoe with me to work every day, so I would be taking Mimsy as well. Do you know if Mimsy travels well?
    Do you know any more about her past?
    I have a lot of questions, but since we live so far apart, this is the only way of getting to know more about Mimsy. We adopted Roscoe from a foster home in North Carolina, and it has turned out wonderfully for all!
    Please let me hear from you.
