ABOUT ME:

I’m a sweet little pocket pittie who was in a high-kill shelter in Texas. When Twin Cities Pet Rescue rescued me in November, I was something called “code red," which I later found out meant the shelter was full and my future was very uncertain. TCPR coordinated a fantastic group of volunteers to pull me from the shelter and transport me across the country. When I arrived in Minnesota, I was ecstatic to meet my new foster family - my butt never stopped wiggling. Would they like me? Would I fit in? So much nervous excitement! 

On intake, the TCPR volunteers discovered there was something special about me. I have a severe overbite because my lower jaw is so much smaller than my upper jaw. There is almost no contact between my upper and lower teeth. Upon evaluation I was diagnosed with malocclusion, which is a “variation of a normal scissors bite.” I can’t remember how this happened but the vet says it's likely a birth defect. Because of this, my canines and incisors on my lower jaw poked into my upper palate, which was quite painful. I had one lower canine tooth and a few incisors removed, so I can close my mouth normally. I can eat normal food now and have no trouble doing regular doggie things, but sometimes it takes me a minute to pick up balls and bones.
 
Despite these medical challenges, I’m very fortunate and happy as can be. My fosters give me lots of treats, belly rubs, balls, and I have discovered that I adore anything that squeaks. I am learning lots of tricks like sit, down, wait, and watch me, and hear I am “food motivated,” whatever that means. I’m pretty quiet in my kennel after I settle in, too. I like playing with my foster brothers but can be a bit energetic, so it would be helpful if I had a canine friend who likes to play as much as I do. If I can’t have a canine foster brother, I would love it if I had an active family to get me lots of playtime and exercise. When I’m not wrestling with my canine foster brothers or playfully terrorizing the resident cat, I can be found lying at my foster parents’ sides, snoring loudly and drooling copiously.
 
Thank you!!!!!

About Twin Cities Pet Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Twin Cities Pet Rescue (TCPR) is a small, 501c3 nonprofit, companion animal rescue organization. TCPR does not have a facility and is 100% foster-based. TCPR rescues dogs, cats and small animals of all breeds; rescuing them from city impounds, puppy mills, and other situations of abuse and neglect. Once rescued, all animals receive veterinary care ranging from spay/neuter, vaccines, microchips, and basic testing to specialty eye surgeries, pet dermatology care, and various other specialty treatments. Once an animal is rescued by TCPR, it remains in a foster home until adopted, no matter how long that might take.
TCPR often rescues animals that are considered “less adoptable” by other rescue organizations, as they are often the ones overlooked and truly left behind; and in need of the most help. These animals might be overlooked due to their age, health status, special needs or breed. TCPR works to help as many animals in need find their furever families as we can, especially helping those animals that need help most.

Our Adoption Process...

All adopters complete an adoption application. If approved, we arrange a meet and greet. Cats and small animals can be adopted and go home at the time of the meet and greet after the adoption agreement is complete and adoption fee collected (which is variable based on animal type, etc). For dogs, we complete home visits and then finalize the adoption.
