Hi! I am Emma, a 9-year-old easy going and beautiful full-blooded Rat Terrier. I weigh 10 lbs and am perfect for a family with other small and mid-sized dogs and children. I don’t give a hoot about cats, so I also would be great in a house with cats.
I could also be the fur-baby of an elderly couple because I have mid-level energy, and could get my exercise running in a yard or with a walk once a day. I am thin, elegant, and sweet – and I love to be cuddled, and most of all to sit in my owner’s lap. I love walks on leashes and to sniff around the backyard.
I am quiet but bark when I hear my foster mom drive up in the driveway, just to voice my excitement of their arrival! I am easy-peasy and very adaptable and would make the perfect companion!
