Winnie (VA)

Rat Terrier

Small  |  Female

Atlanta, ga


Hi, my name is Winnie, and I'm 12 lbs. and 9 years of feisty personality, but please don't think of me as a crusty old lady (though I can have my moments). With the long lifespan enjoyed by Rat Terriers, you could hardly consider me old. And instead of crusty, I prefer to compare myself to the best French bread--a bit crunchy on the outside, but soft and yummy on the inside. It's true that I don't like kids and big dogs, but I enjoy dogs my own size and even some cats! In fact, one of my best friends is a cat. We sit and sun ourselves together. I also don't appreciate thunderstorms and getting my picture taken. Either one will send me skedaddling for cover. Storms aren't quite so scary when I'm wearing my T-shirt and can find a place to hide, like under the bed. Foster Mom says I can be snarky towards some folks, but if you're patient and gentle--not pushy, I'm sure to show you my soft side and you're gonna love it! For example, I do a little dance when I'm happy, and if you mention taking a ride to the ice cream store, I'll be hopping and wiggling for joy on the way to the door! I am house trained and walk nicely on a leash, but I'm not too fond of being left in a crate. Foster mom says that I'm really quite undemanding. All I need is a quiet home where I can snuggle on the couch and a kindhearted person who is home most of the time so that I won't have to be crated too much. I'm hoping YOU might be that person. To help you decide, I did allow a few more photo ops, and you can see them at .
