More About Rat Terrier Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Shaggy

      Breed: Poodle (Miniature)-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Poodle (Miniature) / Mixed (medium coat). Adoption Fee: $275. Breed: Miniature Poodle Mix Weight: 8 lbs Est. DOB: 6/15/2007 Dog Friendly: Yes Cat Friendly : Kid Friendly:Yes House Trained:In Progress Crate Trained:Yes History: Local Animal Control Adoption Fee: $275 (Adoption Fee includes age appropriate vaccinations, Heartworm test (if old enough), Microchip, and Spay/Neuter surgery. From the Foster: Shaggy came to CSHS from an extremely disheartening situation. He received the name Shaggy because of how overgrown and matted his fur was at that time. Once he was trimmed up and transferred to his foster family we realized he only had one ear. Because of that the foster family calls him “Vincent”, as in Van Gogh. After a few days of hiding out in his crate, he was finally enticed to come play with the foster family’s 7 mo. old Lab puppy. They now have a great time wrestling, going on walks, and playing tug-o-war with various toys. He has even been to the dog park a couple of times and has been great. He is a little shy at first meeting, but will let you hold and pet him, especially if you are sitting down on the floor. He likes to come sit right in your lap. He loves to go in the car and is learning about hanging his head out the window from his Lab foster sister. Shaggy loves to be by you and hang out, or get a good belly rub. He follows his foster mama around everywhere (she is obviously his favorite right now), though he will cuddle with the kids too. Shaggy is still working on potty training since we don’t know if he was ever potty trained to begin with. Belly bands are helping and he does know how to sit for a treat after he does his business outside. He’ll need some patience and love but he’s a good boy and now that he has been “poodled” up by the groomer he is looking sharp and ready for his forever home.

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Hi guys! My name is Apollo and I CAN'T WAIT to come hang out with you and snuggle up on your couch! Or your bed.. or your lap... anywhere that has me cuddled up as close as possible with you! I've heard the term "stage-five-clinger" a few times since I've been in my foster home - you can call me whatever you want as long as I can spoon you! I'm still learning to play with dog toys, and I totally dig car rides. And as long as I'm with you - I'm a happy camper! I'm a bit of a meat head and while I mean well, sometimes it takes me a little time to learn to hang out with other dogs. I like them and all, but I tend to be a LITTLE excited when I get to hang out with them, so it's best to do slow introductions. It might be super fun for you and I to take a training class together to help me learn some more manners! Bonus! I'm also good with cats! Pretty awesome huh!? I spent some extra time in my foster home after being pulled from a local impound, because I had REALLY bad skin allergies and needed to be on steroids to help me feel better. And whoa boy, do I feel great now! Check me out - I'm a total babe! No more itchy, red raw skin for me! I WILL have to be on medicine every month to make sure my skin stays nice and my fur looks handsome. Just because you adopt me doesn't mean I won't want to look like a stud for all of the people you'll be introducing me to. If you're interested in adopting me, you can talk to the Adoption Coordinator more about the monthly cost of my care. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Apollo is neutered, microchipped, negative for heartworm, and current on vaccinations, including bordetella and leptospirosis. He will have to be on a daily medication to manage his skin allergies. Adoption fee $275.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Jack Russell Terrier / Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: 250.00. Hello! My name is Roo and I’m proof that age is just a number! I have lots of love and kisses to give! I absolutely love people and adapt well in new situations. I quickly find my person and bond with them! My foster mom says that my faithful owner of 11 years had to surrender me because she got really sick. She raised me so well though! I can do tricks and when I’m outside, I don’t even need a leash because I stay in the yard! Sometimes I see a bird and I start to run after it but I hear my name called, and I stop immediately. That’s a trick I like to show off because most dogs can’t do it. If you adopt me, you can leave me home alone because I’m completely potty trained and would never ruin anything in my castle! In fact, I’ll just sleep on the couch until you get home and then meet you at the door with my happy dance! My foster castle has 3 other dogs and 2 young, loud, rowdy, kids. I actually wag my tail for these kids and give them lots of kisses (their hands are usually sticky—yummmy!) At night I prefer to sleep at the bottom of my foster mom’s bed, but if you prefer cold feet, I’ll also sleep on the floor. Whatever you want me to do, I will—I love to be obedient and earn your praise (and treats!). Speaking of treats, I’m a bit on the heavy side according to the “experts.” Some people even call me a little sausage, can you believe that?! But the good news is that I absolutely love to go for walks and I’ve already lost a few pounds while living at my foster castle! My meals have some medicine in them because the experts also say I have something called Cushings. I don’t know what that’s all about—I just know that I’m a happy Queen who is looking for her forever castle.

Charlie does not do well with children. He would thrive in an adult home and would make a great companion. Charlie will take the opportunity when the door opens to let himself outside, and because of this his new home MUST have a fenced yard. He is house and crate trained and will bark once you get home so you haven't forgotten he's there.

      Breed: Chihuahua-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: 325.00. Dodge is a sweet little guy, who loves playing with his 90 pound friend Koda , or playing with the kitties even if they don't want to. He gets excited to go for walks and goes well on a leash although sometimes he gets a little frustrated with it. He follows me everywhere, and often sits near me when I'm cooking in the kitchen. He's very smart and learns commands quite quickly , once he's learned it it's just a matter of repetition so he remembers it. Right now I'm teaching him to hug. When he's happy to see someone he will spin around and around in circles to show just how happy he is , yet he can be pretty clumsy at the same time. He does have a little bit of separation anxiety if he's really attached to you. He doesn't like being away from his humans for very long and we are still working on potty training. His allergies have gotten better although sometimes his eyes we'll get watery as you can see from the pictures. Zantac seems to be working fine for helping with his allergies, along with grain free kibble and canned food. Dodge likes to go for car rides. He was fine at the vets office. He gets along well with other dogs of any size and children, and he is quite friendly. He is kennel trained either in a plastic or wire kennel , and will often go take naps in his kennel on his own. At night he loves to sleep with his humans or his children under the covers with them. Tho not a lap dog, he does like to lay right next to you on the couch (if allowed) or lay right at your feet. Always curious, very loyal, very playful and extremely smart he needs patience and consistency to help him remember his manners he gets so excited! Dodge is spayed/neutered, microchipped, negative for heartworm, and current on vaccinations. Adoption fee $325.00 If interested, please submit an online adoption application www.carverscotths.org ***CSHS DOES NOT SHIP PETS***
