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.

      Peanut

      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

      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Husky / Mixed (short coat). Holly is a 3 1/2 month old puppy. She appears to be Husky/Shepherd/Rotweiler. Holly came to us with a spinal deformity. X-Rays could not determine whether it was trauma or a congenital defect like scoliosis. Upon recheck, the vet determined she is improving and can be placed for adoption. She will need to take joint supplements and a low dose anti inflammatory for life. These meds/supplements will average about $30 per month. She will also need to always be at her ideal weight. She is quite the handful of pure joy. She is very active and talkative. Holly knows sit, shake, and down and is very eager to learn. She doubled her weight in one month and we expect her to be a large dog when full grown. This puppy is looking for a dedicated home to provide the attention, exercise and training needed. Adoption fee $400.00 Holly is spayed/neutered, microchipped, and current on age appropriate vaccines.

      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever (medium coat). Izzy is a 4 - 5 year old black lab female. She was an unclaimed stray at the pound and came to us a hot mess! At 99 pounds, she is double the weight she should be. We are treating her for a double ear infection, Lyme's disease, and incontinence. Her New Year's Resolution is to get back in shape. She will be taking medication for Lyme's disease for a month. Her incontinence is being managed with a drug called Proin. (About $27 per month) With blood and urine tests normal, it is suspected that weight loss will help with this issue. With treatment making her feel better already, she is highly motivated to keep her resolution. Her foster home says she is a love bug! She loves stuffed animals and car rides. Belly rubs are her favorite. She is very well behaved in the home. She is house trained and crate trained. Izzy is spayed, microchipped, negative for heartworm, and current on vaccinations.

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Chaska, MN
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Hi, I’m Garrett. I’m a 3 year old pit mix. I love people and I love to snuggle with them. I pretty much follow my human from room to room so that I can be near them. I’m energetic and playful, but I’m content to have one or two walks a day and some playtime in the yard. I love to chew on marrow bones or hard Kong-like toys. I’m crate trained and potty trained, I just haven’t figured out that I can tell my human I need to go out. My foster mom thinks I could be trained to ring a bell to go out, but since her other dog is afraid of sudden noises she can’t show me. But I go out when she tells me, so that works fine for now. I know sit and down and my foster mom is working on shake and leash walking. I’m also learning wait, but I haven’t perfected it yet. I need to eat grain-free food so that my digestion is good. My foster mom brushed my teeth (she thinks for the first time) and I was even game to do that. I’m very gentle with her 3 year old grandson. I love to share the couch with my foster mom and watch TV at night. We walked past the park today and there were kids there playing and he wanted to go to play with them so bad. Garrett is spayed/neutered, microchipped, negative for heartworm, and current on vaccinations.

      Breed: Pointer-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Chaska, MN
      Posted Breed: Pointer / Mixed (short coat). Hello future family! My name is Dolly, and boy have I been on an adventure for the last few months! Let me tell you ALL about me so you can decide if I'm your perfect forever dog. I hope you're sitting down because it's quite the tail! ha! Get it? Tail?! I came to Minnesota by way of transport from Tennessee, where I originally was staying at the Animal Humane Society. When I got here, they realized that in addition to having heartworm, I was very shy and didn't trust people all that much, so they felt it would be best if I recuperate from heartworm in a foster home. I was spayed (more on that later), treated for heartworm, and transferred to CSHS. About a week into my heartworm treatment I managed to get out of my foster mom's house and I was on the run for seven days! CSHS staff was really worried about me because vigorous exercise for dogs that have been treated for heartworm can be really dangerous. Even though I did a great job surviving on my own for a week, I was exhausted and lost a lot of weight and I was pretty glad when they caught me. I moved to another foster home (with a fence!) and after a couple of weeks I learned to be comfortable and feel safe in her yard and now my foster mom isn't worried that I'll be a flight risk at all. In fact, after I potty I want to get back inside and back onto my couch as soon as possible! At first I might have a couple of accidents in your house until I figure out my potty schedule and feel safe in your yard. When you first bring me home you should keep a leash on me in your fenced yard and help me get used to my new potty spots and all the new sights and sounds of your neighborhood so I don't get scared. I don't really want to talk about it, but my old life wasn't a very happy one. I get nervous with new people and it will take me some time to warm up to you and seek attention. I do love snuggling in bed with my foster mom, and whoever adopts me will have to be patient as I learn to trust them. My foster mom says I need positive reinforcement - whatever that means. All I know is that she calls me a "breathing rug" and while I get excited in the morning when it's time to get up, and I wiggle a lot when she comes home, I mostly just like hanging out in whatever room my people are in, cuddled up on the chair or couch. Because I was suffering pretty badly from general anxiety, I am now on Prozac and doing MUCH better. I will likely need to stay on Prozac or a similar anti-anxiety medication for the long-term. In addition, I am on a medication called Proin because without it I can have accidents. When I had my spay surgery done to make sure I won't have any more puppies (thank goodness!), they missed some bits. My foster mom said I can get a revised spay surgery once I go into heat again - but we don't know exactly when that will happen. Either way, you won't have to worry about paying for that - my rescue has it covered. I will also need my heartworm check when I hit six months from treatment - so sometime in November. If I still have any stupid heartworms left in me, CSHS will pay for my treatment. Oh, and there's one more thing. I do have hip dysplasia in my right hip, and because of that I will need to be on arthritis medication and glucosamine and chondroitin supplements for life. I am doing well on them and because I'm not a super active dog I likely won't need surgery. I am kind of sad because I'm worried that even though I am a super sweet dog and my fur feels like velvet and I have the best "puppy dog eyes" in the business, no one will want to adopt me because I will need medicine and some extra TLC forever. My foster mom said the monthly cost for my care would be about $50-60 for the Prozac, Proin, Rimidyl and joint supplements. That doesn't include the grain-free food I'm on (Taste of the Wild). Oh and coconut oil - my foster mom mixes it in with my food so it disguises the taste of my pills. She thinks I haven't noticed but it's so yummy and she's so nice that I let it slide. ;) I am (almost) spayed, microchipped, hopefully will be negative for heartworm in November, and current on all my vaccinations. My adoption fee is $275.00. If interested, please submit an online adoption application at www.carverscotths.org.
