Little Perrito couldn't be any cuter, but he has some quirks that have kept him in foster care longer than is reasonable, and he is seeking an understanding adopter who
will appreciate his funny character. Over his 11 years, Perrito has developed his likes and dislikes, which he expects the people around him to respect. The "Likes"
include playing ball, getting ear and back scratches from familiar people, going on short walks, napping, and following you around the house. On the "Dislikes" side is
being poked and prodded, having other dogs crowd him or try to take his stuff, having his ball taken away, and being around little kids who want to touch him.
And who could blame kids for wanting to touch him? At just 8 lbs. of friskiness, he seems like such a toy, with the short legs characteristic of a Teddy (Type B) Rat
Terrier. But Perrito is no toy, and if you don't remember that, he may be inclined to remind you, so he is seeking a patient, respectful mom or dad who is dog-savvy.
Perrito's house manners are good, and he gets along OK with dogs and cats, though he does best with calm, confident dogs. He is house trained and will do "business"
outside when he has quick, easy access, or on a pee pad when he has to be left indoors for extended periods. Because his pancreas doesn't work so well, he needs a
couple of common daily medications and enzymes. Not surprising for a gentleman entering his senior years, Perrito is showing some signs of cognitive decline
-- occasional forgetfulness and mild confusion -- making it more important than ever for him to find a loving adoptive family before such a transition would be too
difficult for him. Please check out more photos and videos at ImageEvent.com/NewRattitude/Perrito
