Brayda is a beautiful brindle and white girl who found herself in a shelter through no fault of her own.  She is about 2 to 3 years old, and weighs about 18 pounds.  She is an excellent watch dog, and will look for signs from you when a stranger enters the home.  Once told it's okay, she will wag her tail to meet them.  She is crate trained and is housebroken with a doggie door.  If allowed, she loves to sleep at the foot of her foster dad's bed.  She is a busy girl, always checking out the back yard for pesky squirrels and other invaders!  Brayda loves to play with the other dogs in her foster home, and especially loves to play chase in the back yard.  She loves being outdoors!  Because she is active and loves being outside, we would prefer that her permanent home have a fenced back yard to keep her safe.  She is attentive without being needy, and doesn't demand to be in your lap all the time.  Brayda would be a fantastic addition to an active family, and would not do well in a home that expected a couch potato dog. Brayda plays hard, so very small children would probably not be advised, we would be afraid she would accidently knock them over in her exuberance.  But if you like walking, jogging, or just watching her harass the squirrels in your back yard, this is the dog for you!  She loves to fetch a ball, but she will make you work to get it back.  Toys are her favorite thing in the world, besides ear scratches.  Check out her album often, as we will be adding more photos. Click Here:.

About Rat Terrier ResQ - NC

About Our Rescue Group...

Rat Terrier ResQ is a national all-volunteer Rat Terrier dog rescue group committed to saving Rat Terriers in need. These dogs are special loving creatures and, at times, end up with people who don't understand them. These Rat Terriers may end up in shelters after having been abandoned, neglected or abused. We work to get them safe, loved, and healthy -- and then find them the real forever homes they so rightly deserve.. Learn more about us at our website:

Come Meet Our Pets...

Because all of our dogs are located in a network of foster homes across the U.S. and southern Canada, we do not have a shelter or other public location. Visit our website at to see all of our available dogs.

Our Adoption Process...

All inquiries about Rat Terrier ResQ dogs need to go through our applications team. We go through a careful process to ensure that this will a permanent, loving relationship.

Your patience and understanding is appreciated throughout the process. Feel free to ask questions and email back and forth as much as you like with the dog's foster parent. You will also receive a phone call from an Applications Coordinator for an interview and a Home Visit Coordinator will be working to set up a Home Visit.

Once you are approved to adopt your new family member, we will send you an adoption contract to read, sign, and send back along with your adoption fee ($150 for adult dogs; $175 for puppies under 6 months). After your contract has been received, we will work with you to arrange transport to get your new family member home to you!
