Hi! My name is Chloe. I’m in need of a new home as fast as you can say “rat terrier”! Yes, I’m a 12 year old rat terrier who weighs 15 pounds. I used to have a big lab dog buddy but he passed away. Since then it’s just been me and my mom. Mom can’t keep me anymore and she’s worried she won’t find a good home for me. If you can’t adopt me, maybe you know someone who can?

I am a good girl. My mom will tell you that I have great manners. I am a true little lady which is why my mom calls me “Little Lady” as my nickname! While I am very well behaved that doesn’t mean I won’t chase a bunny in the yard if I see one. I should not have a home with cats and I would rather not live with kids under 10 years old.

If you are looking for a loyal and loving companion to spend time with, I am your gal! I am alert and attentive. Don’t you worry, you won’t ever feel lonely with me around! I am gentle and cuddly. I must have a blanket to burrow in to go to sleep. Once I settle into my new home, I’m sure I will be OK to be left alone. I’m not much of a barker. I can manage a few hours before I need a potty break and when I need to do my business, I’ll let you know I need to go outside.

Getting outside to enjoy nice weather is fun. I need a home with a fenced yard to go into. I don’t dig or chew up things, I just like watching the birds outside and letting the sun shine on me. I like playing with my toys. I am very good on leash and know some basic commands. I can manage the stairs just fine at this time.

Maybe you have a nice dog who is looking for a pal? Or maybe you are dogless and have been hoping to find a furry friend? I am a loving girl who wants to love and be loved. I hope to find a new home very soon. My mom will be sad to part with me but she must so she hopes to find me the best new home. Might that be with you?”
