This dog's fosterhome is located in: ****Wolcott, CT****

Katie came into rescue along with her housemate, Kelsey.  Kelsey has been adopted, and Katie is still looking for her new home!  She is a 7 yr old rat terrier, and just about as sweet as they come.  She adores being held and cuddled, and is quite a vocal little girl when she "talks" to you about things.  When you speak to her, not only does she understand, but she answers!  Katie is housebroken and crate trained, and is also good with other dogs and cats. She is a very gentle girl and might be scared with very young kids so I we would recommend children 7 years or older.  She lost her home when her family had to move into another type of housing, but she was well taken care of while she was with them, and her former owner was relieved to hear that both girls had been taken into rescue.  Katie weighs about 10 or 11 pounds, and is just the perfect size for a lap buddy!  For more photos of Katie, check her album:

About Rat Terrier ResQ - NJ

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 http://www.ratterrierresq.comto 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!
