Poe (WI)

Rat Terrier

Small  |  Male

Atlanta, ga


Read below and get to know Poe! As doggies go, he steals the show! This adorable 13-lb. Rat Terrier mix is only about 1 1/2 years old, but he behaves like quite the grown-up. He has great house manners and is reliably house trained. He also rides well in the car, and his easygoing personality makes him a great companion for any outing. He's not too interested in toys and isn't a chewer, so he won't destroy your stuff. He tries to please both his human and dog companions and is easy to motivate with food, happily jumping into his crate for a treat and sleeping there quietly throughout the night. Poe is so affectionate and snuggly, however, that he longs for a home where he can sleep in bed with his people. He likes meeting new people and will cuddle on the couch with anyone willing. He's also great with the small, medium, and large dogs in his foster home (though it took him some time to warm up to the extra-large dog). He plays well with the ones who want to play, and he's respectful of the older ones who don’t wish to engage with him. Because Poe lived his entire life before rescue being tethered with two other dogs, he is making up for lost time with exuberant, sometimes boisterous displays of affection that could frighten or possibly hurt young children. Poe wouldn't want to hurt a fly, so he's looking for a home without lower elementary school-age children. And because he thrives so on attention, he should have a human or canine companion available most of the time. When these conditions are met, Poe is an amazing, loving, and happy boy.
