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.

He is just about housetrained now too, but is completely crate-trained and LOVES his crate. Sundance would love a home where he'll be the center of attention, getting the love he missed out the first time around. No toddlers please. Sundance can only tolerate so much pestering. He'd prefer a home with adults or teens. He has been waiting almost 5 years for a forever home - please be that person to love and care for him for the rest of his days.

      Location: Winder, GA
      Posted Breed: Chinese Crested-Hairless / Pug (medium coat). Sam is a sweet, unassuming old soul approximately 7 y.o., weighing 9 lbs. He is friendly and lovable and calm. He likes an open crate to use as a den where he can observe the goings on around him. Since he has discovered the couch, he's not going to his crate much at all anymore. At the top of Sam's list of needs is a nice sunny spot to snooze indoors where he can dream of his forever home, and put the scary past of being a stray in the suburbs of Atlanta. Sam gets very excited when his foster mom comes home from work, and joins the pack seeking attention and pets. He is truly a gem, a darling little boy who wants only love.

      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Winder, GA
      Posted Breed: Yorkshire Terrier Yorkie / Chihuahua / Mixed (medium coat). Felix was rescued with his Buddy, Oscar. They came from a North GA shelter as part of a hoarding case. Felix is a timid little guy and takes a while to warm up to you, and even then, he only lets you pet him for a brief moments. He's hard to catch unless you throw a treat in a crate. It is possible to catch him and pick him up, but he freezes and pees a little bit. He allows his foster mom to hold him and kiss him, but not for long - he starts squirming to get away. He will jump on your legs for a treat and follow you around all day. He is paper-trained. He likes the company of most small dogs and is very playful, especially with his friend, Oscar. For this reason, they should be adopted together. He can be bossy and barky to bigger dogs. Felix is going to take some work, and needs a patient and understanding rescue-minded, dog-experienced adopter. The small bits of affection he allows is worth the wait. When he finally comes completely out of his shell, someone is going to have a wonderful little dog.

They came from a North GA shelter as part of a hoarding case. Oscar is extremely timid and takes a while to warm up to you, and even then, he only lets you pet under his chin, sometimes you can scratch behind his ears, but he runs away if you raise your hand to pet his head or back.
