Meet sweet Rainey! Rainey appears to be a Manchester Terrier mix that is approximately 18 months old. We don't know a lot about Rainey, as she was found as a stray by animal control. We do know that Rainey is super friendly and loves everyone she meets. She is good with other dogs her size and larger, she has not been around small breed dogs, cats or children (with her personality, we expect her to be fine with children). Rainey is now house trained and sleeps in her crate at night - her foster mom just says, "Let's go nighty-night!" and she goes right into her crate. She walks on a leash, but she will need more leash work. We recommend Rainey attend obedience training - besides teaching commands and manners, obedience training also helps with socializing with other dogs and helps form a lasting bond for the new family. She is very smart and would love to show you how well she learns! Rainey has a moderate energy level and does not require a fenced-in yard - as long as she gets other sources of off-leash play and exercise, such as at a dog park. So far Rainey has only been crated during car rides, and unfortunately she gets car sick. It is common for puppies and young dogs to get car sick, and most of the time they will outgrow it, however if Rainey does not outgrow it - talk to your vet about remedies to help with it. She LOVES to be held and get belly rubs! If Rainey is the girl you have been searching for, please fill out an application...Rainey can't wait to meet you!

**Additional info you should know - For most of our dogs, we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each of our dogs as an individual and do our best to describe and place them based on personality not breed label. Some dogs may not yet be in New England, nor ready for immediate adoption. There may be additional vetting, quarantine, waiting periods and/or fees depending upon your state of residence. If you have questions or concerns on any of this, you can discuss this with your Adoption Counselor.
