Tipsy – ADOPTED!!

Posted Aug 7, 2013 at 4:19 pm in Latest News

ADOPTED!!     Tipsy lost her family when her owner became desperately ill and could no longer care for her.  She was pulled from a shelter in North Little Rock, Arkansas.  This sweet girl has been well-loved, socialized, and is a wonderful little girl.  Our vets estimate her age between 4 and 5 years old, and she weighs only 10 pounds.  She walks great on a leash, seems to love everyone she meets, and will do anything you ask of her.  She is housebroken and loves the doggie door in her foster home because she can go outside any time she wants.  She saw a cat at the vet’s office and was extremely interested, so we suspect she would chase a cat.  Her temperament suggests she would be fine with children, especially those who have been taught how to treat a small dog.  Tipsy will only get up on the bed or a couch when “invited” to jump up.  The only behavioral problem her foster mom reports is that she will try to dart out a door so she can go with you when you are leaving the house, but that is beginning to resolve itself, now that she knows her foster mom will return.   The perfect home for this little darling would be a home with a fenced yard, since she has a propensity to try to explore.  Tipsy has been crate trained, and will often take naps in a crate with the door open.  Tipsy is a happy girl who will jump with joy when you come home.  Her foster family is already in love with her, after only a week.  If you are looking for a special little girl, this may be the one!  Check her album for updated photos in her foster home, click here:

    Hi Cora, Bruce and I are trying to adopt Tipsy. We are very excited about getting her as a member of our family! We hope to be able come get her soon! She has such a sweet face. Does she like to go for car rides? Does she like to wear sweaters or coats when it’s cold?

    Thanks for your time, Jackie

    She does fine on car rides, Jackie. I haven’t had her during the cold weather, but most rat terriers like sweaters when it’s cold. I should be getting your application soon, and I will write you as soon as I do. Thanks! Cora
