Story
Meet Dax aka Dax-A-Million! This spicy little boy is looking for his very own family. Dax wants someone who will play with him and ruff house, but also sleep with him at night. Dax has a playful spirit but that's to be expected as he is around a year old. This little guy is truly ready to find his best friend, his very own person! He comes fully vetted, neutered, up to date on preventions and vaccines, and microchipped that comes with a special geo tag! If you are interested in adopting Dax, please fill out an application on our website www.TiggerTown.com ##1940173##

Story
Harry and Eleanor?? Such SERIOUS names for a couple of goofy pups! We came from a somewhat sad and seriously MESSED up place but now we may be a little shy but we are definitely NOT SERIOUS :) We are JRT/Rat Terrier mixed siblings, each of us is cute and loving in our own right. Under 15# of absolute adorableness is who we are. We are both still a little nervous, I mean we came from a pretty horrific situation so know that we were not handled and loved on until the last month or so in our foster home... but we are learning so much and having a blast! We are great together but do not have to be adopted together. We will need at least another dog with us to show us the ropes and keep us company in our new family. We are good with everyone so that will be pretty easy :) Look one of us up and ADOPT...DON'T SHOP!!! SO MANY LIVES' DEPEND ON IT!! Local adoption fee is $350 (in TX) Out of state adoption fee is $600 (includes transport to your area, $50 temporary fuel fee will be included)

Story
Sweet Dixie was a adopted a couple of years ago to a very sweet lady in New Jersey. Sadly she unexpectedly passed away a couple of months ago and as she had no family, Dixie came back to us. she has adjusted very nicely but she needs to have a family of her own. Dixie was a street dog back in the day. she came to us with a litter of pups who were born under a trailer. She was a great mama and she was very thankful to have a stable home. She is spayed, microchipped, fully vaccinated, crate trained and ready for immediate transport. Wouldn't you love to give her a forever home! ADOPTION FEE $250

Story
Nickajack almost didn't return from his recent neuter surgery because the vet clinic staff all fell in love with the friendly rat terrier and wanted to keep him! His alert curiosity and his sweet, affectionate nature endear him to everyone who meets him. Although he weighs just 11 lbs., 2-year-old Nick seems bigger because of his peppy bounce, agility, and enthusiasm for life. He is eager to greet new dogs--sometimes a bit more eager than another dog might appreciate--and has no problem with cats, but his real love is for humans, particularly those who will interact with him and offer pats and affection. He lists his many skills on his resume: riding calmly in a car, crating easily, sleeping peacefully at night, walking eagerly on leash, not chewing inappropriately, sitting on request (although the butt-to-ground touch may be very brief), having good health, and being a super snuggler. Apart from some initial marking of his new territory, his house-training has also been good, as he clearly knows that pottying is for outside. Currently Nick is working on perfecting his response to 'stay,' learning to use a dog door, and settling down more quickly when newcomers come into 'his' space. See lots more photos and some videos of Nickajack in his online album at www.ImageEvent.com/beales/fosters/nickajack .Our adoption fee is $200 for adult dogs or $250 for puppies under 6 months old. If you are interested in adopting this dog, PLEASE READ THE DETAILED ADOPTION PROCESS information on our website at www. NewRattitude.org/adopt/  From there, you can access our adoption application or contact our Adoption Team for more info. April 12, 2024, 10:30 am
