Gracie's Story...
Name: Gracie (aka Suzy)
Breed: Rat Terrier mix
Age: Adult
Gender: Female

Gracie is an adult female Beagle/Rat Terrier mix who came to us when her elderly owner could no longer care for her. House trained, crate trained, well mannered, she is very tolerant of the other dogs in her foster home but clearly would be happier as an only dog. She loves walks, does not love other dogs pushing her around on walks, enjoys meeting new people and prancing happily alongside you. Gracie is happiest walking in wooded areas and sniffing around and rooting through sticks, stones, and pond areas, she loves hiking. She is equally happy curled up alongside you in the house. Gracie does well with cats and is a quieter dog by nature. She does not enjoy dog parks or loud chaotic situations, she prefers stability and familiar to her, paired with walks outside.

Requirements: No special requirements

You can email
with questions and for a preadopt application. This dog has been spayed/neutered, vaccinated as age appropriate, tested for heartworm disease if age appropriate, and dewormed.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gracie, a Minneapolis Rat Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Rat Terrier for sale in Minneapolis, or seeking a Rat Terrier dog from a breeder in Minneapolis.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Minneapolis already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Minneapolis breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Rat Terrier breeders who help with Rat Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Minneapolis paves the way for another one to be saved.
