Facts about Pete

  • Breed: Rat Terrier/Chihuahua Mix
  • Color: Black - With White
  • Age: Puppy
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
This is Pete. He arrived 9/10/16. He is around 12 weeks old. Less than 10 lbs. We decided to bring him into the Paws n'Time family after our shelter contact reached out. They did not have the resources available to figure out what is wrong with Pete. His only option would have been euthanasia. As you can tell this sweet boy has some sort of neurological issues. What he is doing is called intention tremors and is worse when he is trying to eat. It could be anything from a liver shunt to a congenital issue.
Despite his medical issue Pete is Very Sweet. When you hold him he will bury his head into your shoulder and his tremors subside. Pete can walk around. He cries for attention. He met at least two young children and went right up to them for attention. He is aware of when he needs to go potty and does so on the appropriate puppy pads.
Pete will see our Vet on Monday and then we will start the diagnostic process. This will include at least seeing a neurologist.
We are hoping to either provide Pete with the necessary medical care he needs to improve his symptoms. Or, if his medical issues can not be "fixed " then we will be looking for a very special home for this very special boy. We will list him on our Petfinder and adopt a pet sites this evening.

About Paws n'Time Canine Rescue, inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

Our Mission Statement

Paws n’Time Canine Rescue operates as a not for profit company focused on the rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing of dogs. Keeping our focus on our community, we aim to educate and assist current owners with the health and welfare of their animals, enabling them to keep their pets through hard times. Our rescue financially assists struggling families by providing standard vaccinations and a nutrient-rich, quality food for their animals.

If an owner must surrender their pet, Paws n’Time Canine Rescue offers a network of temporary foster homes to care for the dog until a loving family adopts. In addition, these services are extended to local strays and dogs housed in high-kill shelters.

We believe that a large part of reducing the volume of dogs currently located in shelters is prevention. As such, we promote spaying and neutering of all pets. Paws n’Time Canine Rescue offers sponsorship to animals for this surgery with the hope of reducing the chance of puppies being born that are unwanted, without proper care or love waiting for them.

Paws n’Time Canine Rescue strives to promote the human/animal bond as one that is mutually supportive, responsible, enduring and important to the well being of all family members - owners and pets alike.
