CongRATulations to the Mansur family! 

 Xena was abandoned with her siblings at a rural, high-kill shelter in the South that had no formal adoption program.  ResQ was notified and stepped in to rescue the sweet pups and give them a chance at life.  Our volunteers sent the pups to the Northeast for fostering and to find furever homes, and Xena wound up on Long Island, New York.  Xena is approximately 12 weeks old and is just the sweetest thing!  She is a chocolate/lemon tri-color with a striking pattern on her face.  It’s like she’s wearing a mask!  And that’s how she got the name “Xena,” (the Princess Warrior)  although she doesn’t have an aggressive bone in her body.  She gets along well with all of her foster siblings, and may only be 5 pounds, but she can handle the brute of the bunch in her foster home!  Everyone who meets her falls in love immediately.  She loves to play, as any puppy, but melts into your arms as soon as you hold her.  She has learned to sit for a treat and is working very had on housetraining.  She will sleep in her crate all night long, and willingly go into the crate for feeding time and nap time, but if she’s not tired, will complain for a few minutes before settling into the crate.  When fully grown, Xena should be about 12-15 lbs.  She is a type A Rat Terrier, with long legs and slender build.  If you are looking to open your heart and home to a puppy, please consider sweet Xena, a lot of love in a little package!  Xena will be available in just a few short weeks so get your application in so she can go home as soon as she is ready!

    I have two rat terriers … one rescue (a B type male, about 8 yrs old who I rescued at 3 mos) one non-rescue (an A type female, 7 yrs old) who get along with most dogs. A puppy would be ideal to meld into the family. I go back and forth between the Berkshires (Ma.) where there’s lots of land to run and Manhattan. Would either of the 2 pups work with Mini and Mighty? Thanks so much

    Pups get along with everyone – they love everybody! if you are interested, please fill out an application.
    It is rare to have pups in rescue, so they won’t last long.

    We would love to have you apply for Xena. I’m not sure if she has any pending applications or not, but her fostermom would be happy to talk to you.
