Rover Rescue Dog of the Week

Rat Terrier  10 lbs. Small Adult Male
Rat Terrier 10 lbs. Small Adult Male

How do you do?  Allow me to introduce myself.  My name is Sir Elliott, but I will also answer to Elliott.    I found myself in a very bad predicament while in Southern IN.  I was mistakenly taken to a high kill shelter, even though I did have a family.  Unfortunately, my family members were contacted, but they choose not to come for me.   Their loss is Rover Rescue’s gain, as I am told that I am practically perfect.   I am a refined 7 year old Rat Terrier. My 10 lb. physique makes me the ideal lapdog and I can out- love a competitor ten times my size.  I own the title of Master Snuggler.   It is my favorite activity above all.  I will keep you company when you retire for the evening.   I make the best foot warmer, as I like being under the covers.  When I get too hot, I will make my exit, but will crawl back under once I have cooled off.   For the most part, I am a man of little “words”.  You could forget about my presence if it weren’t the jingle of my tags.  But I will honor and protect your home from the dangers of mail carriers and garbage men with my mighty bark.  I am learning that one bark will suffice.   Outside, I am a man on a mission.  I strut through the yard making sure that everything is as it should be.  For being a gentleman of social position, I am pretty low maintenance.   I am well-mannered with both cats and dogs.  I know to do my unpleasant business outside and I am crate trained.  Due to my noble behavior, my foster mom has little use for a crate for me.  I do love to go for walks and will bounce and wiggle when I see the leash come out.  I accompany my foster mom daily for a 3 mile jaunt.  I enjoy my walks so thoroughly; I will attempt to take one unattended.  Doors need to be monitored and shut quickly so I don’t become an escape artist.  Due to my small size and door dashing abilities, I may not be a good candidate for a household with children under the age of 5.  I was treated for heartworms back in February 2013 and can proudly proclaim that my August heartworm test came back negative.  Yay!  I am heartworm free!  I do have a very mild heart murmur that was possibly caused by those nasty heartworms.    However, the heart murmur has not affected my active lifestyle whatsoever.  If you would like to add a canine of lofty character into your home, please call Teri at 630-897-7454.
