CongRATulations to the Bain family!
Like her ears, Claire has a BIG personality. At 5 to 6 months, she is 110% active puppy. Since she weighs 12 pounds at 6 months, she will likely finish as a standard rat terrier when fully grown, weighing about 20 pounds. Claire is a very smart girl and is completely housebroken with the dog door, taking herself out as needed. She loves to play and run, especially with other dogs who are willing to play with her! Because she is a puppy, she can be a bit mouthy when playing or when very excited, therefore, she would do best with children over age 6. She sleeps through the night and really likes to sleep in bed, but is also content to sleep in her crate quietly. Claire will need space to run off her energy and would not make a good dog for an apartment. Owners with a yard or who are very active runners/walkers would be best for her to burn off her energy. Claire is a very good girl, and all she lacks in life is a permanent home of her own! If you think Claire might fit in with your active family, let us know so she can pack her bags to go home!

ADOPTED!! Hello, I’m Lyla. I’m 4 years old and recently lost my family, but they told my foster mom that I was a very good girl, so I guess it wasn’t my fault that I don’t have my home any more. My foster mom says I am laid back, but I do like to patrol the back yard, guarding against any intruding vermin-type animals. I am a super nice girl, and am housebroken and very well trained. I like this new family, and there are kids and other dogs to play with, but I would really like my own home and family where I will never have to be sent away again. My foster mom says that I’m soft like a marshmallow and I need to regain my girly figure, whatever that is! My tail is bobbed, just a nub, so when I’m happy (which is ALL THE TIME) I wiggle my butt so you will know. I enjoyed a spa day and got a manicure and pedicure by my new foster mom who said she never had a better behaved pampered pup! I also heard nice compliments from all the new people I’ve met, so for now I’m in good hands. I’m taking applications for a new, furever family, who will play with me and love me, forever this time.

CongRATulations to the Randolph family!
Just like any well-bred Southern girl, Dixie Belle has two names! Dixie Belle is a sweet 10-month pup who somehow found her way into the shelter in Cabot, Arkansas. The volunteers there worked hard to get her into rescue because of her wonderful temperament. She seems to love everyone. Dixie weighs about 14 pounds, and should probably be 16 when healthy. (she’s a bit skinny right now) Dixie Belle has already learned the doggie door in her foster home and is doing great with her housetraining. She is crate trained and sleeps willingly in a crate at night. Her favorite thing is stuffed animal toys! She loves to play with the other young dogs in her foster home, and we think she would be fine with children. She is self-confident and not at all shy or skittish. Dixie Belle has beautiful, long legs, and she can run like the wind! She loves to snuggle into a pile of warm laundry and take a snooze. The best home for her would have a fenced-in backyard so she could run and play. Dixie is very smart, and watches her foster mom all the time, wanting badly to please her. She also likes her foster dad and greets visitors with a wagging tail. For more photos of this pretty girl in her foster home, check her album often:
