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.

      Gus - no lon...

      Breed: La-Chon
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Chaska, MN
      Posted Breed: Lhasa Apso / Bichon Frise / Mixed (medium coat). What to say about a dog named Gus. Best guess about Gus is that he is a Lhasa Apso possibly Bichon mix. He’s about 3, but coming to us as a stray, it is only speculation. He’s fluffy, soft, and wants desperately to be someone’s best friend. About 20 pounds, give or take, Gus likes to sit devotedly at your feet. He’ll greet you at the door with much happiness and can’t wait for his food bowl to be presented to him. He’s not a real “player,” meaning he’d rather follow you like a shadow or sit on your lap as opposed to playing with another dog. He is quite jealous of others that approach you if you are holding him. He can put on a good snarly face, and has been known to nip. Because of this, Gus would definitely benefit from few courses in obedience training. While he is devoted, he needs to learn to dial it back a little when in public places or meeting new people. House and crate trained, he can be trusted to be out while you are gone. But of course, he’d much rather you be with him all the time. (What dog doesn’t.) He likes a bath, but blow drying is a little bothersome, though not agitating. Finally, because of his nipping and sometimes unpredictable growliness, Gus should be in an adults only home. And with someone who has dog experience. In truth, Gus is an exceptional dog who just needs a gentle but firm hand to manage his occasional inappropriate behavior. He'll be your devoted companion. Promise Gus is neutered, microchipped, negative for heartworm, and current on vaccinations. Adoption fee $350.00 If interested, please submit an online adoption application www.carverscotths.org ***CSHS DOES NOT SHIP PETS***

      Location: Chaska, MN
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Blue is a very sweet, but young girl. She loves everyone and sometimes jumps but just needs a little reminder to stay down. She loves to play and you can definitely see the lab in her when she does. She is house and crate trained. Blue would love a family to be the center of a attention home. Blue does great listening on and off the leash. She does still have some puppy in her and tries to get you to play tug with the leash but once she realizes there's no game she stops. Please consider giving this love bug a place to crash. Blue is spayed/neutered, microchipped, negative for heartworm, and current on vaccinations.

      Breed: Jack Russell Terrier
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Chaska, MN
      Posted Breed: Jack Russell Terrier (medium coat). Jon Jon is very shy and timid, but extremely sweet. He will need someone who understands where he has come from to help him deal with his insecurities. He does well with other dogs and would really do well with another confident dog for him to play with and take direction from. Once he warms up he's a very sweet boy, but he is going to need a lot of time and patience to trust again. His foster Mom said he is really coming out of his shell and is quickly becoming a silly boy. He has great manners, but can be an escape artist. He will require a securely fenced yard. He is a smart boy and would benefit from an obedience class. He really loves to sit next to you wherever you are. Jon Jon is spayed/neutered, microchipped, negative for heartworm, and current on vaccinations.

      Breed: Chihuahua
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Chaska, MN
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua (short coat). Charlie is a great little guy. He is one year old and weighs 10 pounds. He loves attention and snuggling up to watch movies. 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. Adoption fee $325.00 Charlie is negative for heartworm, neutered, microchipped, and current on vaccination. If interested, please call 952-368-3553 option 2 or submit and adoption application from our website. www.carverscotths.org **CSHS Does not ship pets**

      Breed: Chihuahua-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: Chaska, MN
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed. There’s a simple secret to making Peanut happy. Just give her a bone and she will entertain herself for hours. At ten years old, she is still very energetic and playful. She likes to sit on shoulders, heads, arms, laps, just so she can be close. A bit of a Velcro dog. Peanut is easily kenneled. She also eats in a kennel, but doesn’t seek out being in one unless food is involved. She can be rather possessive, especially where her aforementioned bones are concerned. She’ll growl and bare her teeth to protect them. This makes her a perfect candidate to be the only dog in the house. She’ll appreciate 100% of your attention anyway. That growling and baring of teeth is also manifest when anyone outside of her foster mom tries to pet her. Bones aren’t the only things she wants to keep to herself. She has tried to nip at strangers simply trying to pet her. Which makes her not a child’s best friend. Adults only for Ms. Peanut. Peanut likes the security of the fenced yard at her foster home, but a fence is not an absolute requirement. She likes to know where you are at all times. And she’ll happily spring to your lap the moment you sit down. There are days when she simply can’t be close enough, slamming her 8-pound body up against yours as tight as she can or draping herself over your chest just to make sure you know that you are hers. In short, Peanut is a little angel with a hint of devil. No bones about it. Peanut is a 10 year old Chihuahua who was surrendered when her owner could no longer care for her. She bonded very quickly with her foster home and we expect her to bond quickly after adoption. She weighs 8 pounds. Peanut is spayed, microchipped, negative for heartworm, and current on vaccinations. Adoption fee $225.00 If interested, please call 952-368-3553 option 2 or submit an online adoption application www.carverscotths.org
