Oh hi there! My name is Ethel Mae, but most people just call me Ethel. I am a sassy and vivacious 8 year old rat terrier mix who is just too cute! Being a petite lady, I only weigh about 8 lbs or so, which is perfect because I love snuggling a warm lap. Though I am a little skeptical about new people, I do eventually warm up to my patient adult friends who let me come out on my own time. My favorite activity is cuddling whether it be on the couch or curled up under the covers in bed or any other warm spot I can find, including your coat! My fosters even say that I tend to have a preferred person, but will never turn down a lap! I can be a little nervous outside in busy areas, so I would do best with in a low key quiet area. I am not a huge fan of cats and will tell them to back off, so I would do best in a home without them or at least a super dog savvy kitty who won’t try and seek me out to play. With my dog friends, I can be a pretty picky gal, but with a slow intro I will eventually warm up to adult mellow dogs my size (like my friend Toby who has since found his forever home). I can be a bit vocal at times, being a terrier and all, so I would do best in a house set up without shared walls with neighbors. I also can find any hole along the fence line, so a yard that is securely fenced is best. If you squeak a toy, I am always happy to join in a round or two of fetch. Healthwise, I do have some elevated values on my bloodwork, but I am on some medication that is helping. Because I will need regular check ups and bloodwork, Pixie is willing to provide these services to my forever foster family as long as they give me a happy and loving place to retire. Silly and sweet with a dash of spice, I am a little gal with a lot of love to give! Fill out an application to set up a meet with me.
