Nate is a tiny 6 year-old Rat Terrier/Chihuahua mix neutered male who was surrendered to a county dog shelter by his owner who could no longer care for him. We don’t know what the circumstances were that led to Nate losing his home but this little guy sure hopes he can find a new home soon. He’s now in a foster home with Canine Lifeline while he searches for a permanent new home. While Nate gets along with his fellow foster dogs, he might love to have his very own home as he seems to really enjoy attention and affection from his human friends above all else. Nate will need a new family who will be able to work with him on housetraining. He does well if he can go outside every four hours or so during the day—any longer than that and he may have an accident in his crate. With some direction and lots of TLC, Nate is sure to catch on to the house rules and be an outstanding cuddler for years to come. Nate weighs about 7-8 pounds and his adoption fee is $250. He’s neutered, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email if you’re interested in Nate. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. We have no foster homes with young children so aren’t comfortable placing any of them in a home with children less than 7 years of age. We try to respond to inquiries within 72 hours so if you haven’t heard from us within that time frame, please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
