Rose is a one year old, 16lb terrier/chi mix who is full of fun and energy so she would be best in a fenced yard that she can run and play in. She loves trying to catch butterflies, birds and delights in trying to catch the resident squirrel. She plays tug of war with my 3lb toy poodle and is very gentle with him. Her favorite game is to bury her head under a blanket and bats or nips at you, she is hiding and wants you to try to get her. She is a fun fun dog to be around. She gets along with other dogs and will be best with older children only because she is young and rambunctious. She is mostly house trained with very few accidents. She finished obedience class in July 2016, but does need reinforcement of her training. When she is scolded she gets a hurt look on her face and will run over to apologize and get reassurance. She loves to cuddle, have her belly rubbed, and in general be close to you. She sleeps with me but has slept in a kennel at her previous home. She does take a bit to warm up to new people and can appear to be aggressive at first. She just needs a few minutes to warm up before she is comfortable. Rose's adoption fee is $300.

About Small Dog Rescue of Minnesota

About Our Rescue Group...

Small Dog Rescue of Minnesota (SDR) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit all-volunteer no-kill group committed to the rescue, rehabilitation, and placement of dogs 20 pounds and under.

Dogs are fostered in volunteers' homes so they can be loved like a family member until they are placed in a suitable adoptive home, determined by a review of a written application, a criminal background check, several reference consultations, and a home visit.

Our Adoption Process...

1. Complete an adoption application at:

2. Allow up to 10 days for SDR to process your adoption application. It will be reviewed by an SDR representative and references will be checked.

3. If the application is aproved, a home visit will be conducted to ensure a good match with the applicant & the dog.

4. If SDR determines a good match has been made, an adoption contract between the adopter and SDR will be completed. An adoption fee + applicable MN state sales tax are due at the time the contract is signed.
