Ida is a ten year old rat terrier mix who found herself at the shelter in rough shape and super skinny. After a trip to the dentist and a tumor removed, she's ready to enjoy retirement and an occasional sniff around the garden. Ida gets along with other dogs, and cares not a whiff about cats. She's crate trained and house trained, and uses the dog door. Ida's very smart, and learns things pretty quickly. She's a great housemate. If you would like to make Ida part of your family, please complete an online application at and be sure to include her name at the top.
