Facts about Brett

  • Breed: Rat Terrier/Chihuahua Mix
  • Color: Gray/Silver/Salt & Pepper - With White
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
Like a fine wine, Brett has become more refined with age. He was first hired as a stud in an appalling puppy mill work environment (his benefits were terrible). Once it was found out that his swimmers weren't quite making it to their destination, he was tossed onto a golf course with not so much as a putter. All that time on the course left him with an icky rash which has since passed and he is on his way to growing a luxurious coat that would make any fox jealous. Eating is one of his favorite hobbies, which is being encouraged as he needs to put a little weight on his bones.
Brett is hoping to find a home with library-like qualities, no- he can't read, but he's a gentle little fellow who needs a little patience and quiet time. He wears an awesome belly band (they are all the rage in Hollywood) that prevents him from occasional marking which is a result of his puppy mill time. He does however love going to the bathroom outside, it's just all very new to him. Like any good ol' bloke he sleeps through the night just fine and from the comfort from a crate. Everyday he wakes up with excitement about learning something new. He tries to hide it but he is super curious about life outside the mill. Will you be the one to teach Brett about chasing geese, cooking a delicious Italian dinner, knitting by a warm fireplace? He like his foster brothers and cats don't bother him. Brett is shy at first, but once he finds his forever home, he will warm up to his new people, adopt them, and you will become his people. He is a gentle kind soul with so much to teach you. Brett is ready to give you his whole heart.
