Recommended Environment: BeBe loves having a yard to explore so a person willing to take multiple walks during the day or someone with a fenced in yard would be preferred. She is very calm and easy going so she will fit in most anywhere. She is a very sensitive and intuitive girl and seems to know you’re thinking about giving her a treat before you even grab the bag!

Additional Information: Bebe was tested for heartworm when we rescued her and she did test positive; otherwise she is in great health. Luckily we caught the heartworm early and will be able to treat it. Treatment includes oral medications and three injections later in her treatment cycle. The cost of her treatment will be paid for by ADOPT Pet Rescue. Once her heartworm treatment is complete, we will also pay for her spay surgery. Her activity must be fairly restricted while she is being treated for the next couple of months. Walks on a leash are fine but she will not be running around and must remain calm. This shouldn’t be a problem since she is pretty calm and laid back in general. As is not uncommon for a Rat Terrier, BeBe has patellar luxation. You’ve probably heard of a “trick knee” before. It doesn’t seem to bother her and many small dogs live their entire life having it without it interfering with their activities. She will not be a running companion but probably wouldn’t have been one if her knee was fine! She doesn’t doesn’t like to be picked up but loves to snuggle with you. BeBe will be a loving and faithful companion.

In A Foster Home
Due to her requiring further treatment for heartworm, we are restricting her adoption area to a radius of 30 miles from Columbus. The adopter must be able to transport her to our vet in Grove City for treatment.
