Rat Terrier / Chihuahua Mixes
Age: 5 yrs old
Adoption Fee: $125 for both (includes spay/neuter, microchip, vaccinations)
Vicky and Ruby were dumped at the Hayward Shelter by their owners that had them since they were puppies. At 2 years old they were banished to the backyard because the family had a baby. When the baby was old enough to be the backyard, the dogs were taken to the shelter.
Both dogs were traumatized losing the only home they had known. They were fearful and didn’t want to be handled by shelter staff. We pulled them into foster care and started working on their socialization skills. The dogs only have each other and we are committed to keeping them together. Ruby (with the floppy ears) is a little more outgoing than Vicky), but both dogs get along okay with the other dogs in the foster home and are learning to bond with the foster mom. Their first day at our adoption center, they sat on people’s laps and wanted attention.
They would do well as the only 2 dogs in the home or with other dogs their size. No young children, not sure about cats.
