Facts about Lavinia the couch potato!

  • Breed: Rat Terrier Mix
  • Color: White - With Red, Golden, Orange Or Chestnut
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Female
This sweet little rat terrier mix is approx 2 years old and 14 lbs. She was rescued at the last minute from a rural high kill shelter in Texas. We transported her the 8 hr trip to Houston and joined our rescue. She is quite the couch potato and picked out her favorite doggie bed upon arrival in her foster's home. She gets along with all of the other dogs. Although she can be a little testy over treats, she seems to share her food with everyone. She is pretty well house trained, but needs consistency. She is a really pretty little girl and will make a great companion for someone. She tested positive for heartworms and has been treated with the required series of injections, and she has also been started on a monthly heart worm preventative.

The total adoption donation of $525 and includes the required interstate health certificate and transport , spay/neuter, shots including rabies, bordatella, parvo, lepto, distemper and canine influenza, and micro chip with a lifetime pre paid registration. The total amount is payable to Shaggy Dog Rescue which is a 501c3. Some of our dogs are still in Texas in foster care. The application is online at http://houstonshaggydogrescue.org/application-process/

Just as a note, if you are in Massachusetts and are adopting directly from Texas rather than from a local foster, there are new quarantine laws in effect. All rescues must be quarantined 48 hours at a state run facility, and in addition, a second interstate health certificate is required to be issued by a Massachusetts vet. This new law may add an additional cost.
