ADOPTED! Princess

Posted Sep 9, 2012 at 9:13 pm in Latest News

ADOPTED!!  Hello!  My name is Princess and I found my way to Rat Terrier ResQ because my human parents thought that I was too active.  Wow!  They just didn’t understand what it’s like to be a playful rat terrier puppy!  I’m pretty small, at 14 inches tall and only 8 pounds, but I’m a furry ball of fun!  I like to run, jump, pull ropes and squeak those furry little toys.  I am very friendly with people, especially children and other dogs.  I had a bunch of fun meeting the biggest dog in my foster home, a golden retriever.  I tried to out-run her, and almost did!  I think everyone in my new foster home loves me, including three kids, two rat terriers, a retriever and two human parents.  I am learning this busy household and nothing seems to scare me.  I am housetrained.  I can’t seem to walk on a leash the way my foster mom wants me to, but I will work real hard to please her.  I am very smart and curious too.  After a lot of playing I like to “chill” on the sofa with the other rat terriers in the house.  I am so friendly that I would fit in well in a household that has someone home during the day.  Oh, and a fenced yard would be wonderful too!  For more photos of me in my foster home, click here:

    Can you tell me approximately how old Princess is? Also from the photos, she looks like she has black and tan markings. Is this correct? Is she a full-bred Miniature Rat Terrier, Type A, long-legged? Also, can you tell me why the tail wasn’t docked when she was a pup, and does she have dew claws? Do you think she would get along with cats?

    Thanks for the information.

    Hello, I have forwarded your inquiry to Princess’ foster mom. As a rat terrier rescue organization, we don’t have knowledge about why her tail wasn’t docked, or if she has papers or not. We see rat terriers on death row in a shelter and we pull as many of them as we have foster space for. I’m sure her foster mom will contact you soon for information about her personality, etc. If you are interested in adoption, we would love to have to fill out an application.

    The vet estimated Princess to be one year old, but I suspect she’s closer to 8 or 9 months. She has beautiful black and tan markings. Princess has some Miniature Pincher mixed in her. She has not been cat tested, but loves to play with other dogs. You are welcome to call me at 336-671-5268 to discuss more about Princess.

    I live very close to Winston Salem and would live to meet this little girl.
    We have one rescued Rat Terrier, a whippet, and two cats. Fenced yard
    and great love of animals. Would it be possible to arrange a meet and greet
    to see how our pets get along with a possible new family
    member? We are in Kernersville, about 1/2 hour away.

    Is Princess still available for adoption? We live in the Atlanta area but W-S isn’t terribly far and we will be driving to Virginia at Thanksgiving, in any case. We have a fenced yard (6′ privacy fence) and 3 other dogs – a wonderful Great Pyrenees, the best Labradoodle ever, and a sweet Lhasa Apso. Princess might be a lively addition to the menagerie. We are “interesting” (aka “senior”) adults with no children at home and no cats, but we do have young grandchildren. My 3 adult daughters have all been foster parents for numerous dogs and have belonged to several rescue groups. My middle daughter owns a very successful pet-sitting business.

    Can you let me know about Princess?
