Available for Adoption

Destiny - Georgia

This beautiful girl was picked up as a stray and placed in a shelter in Tennessee. Ratbone Rescues stepped in and provided this thin little gem of a girl with a foster home where she is loved and cared for, and given proper nutrition. Destiny can move very quickly and would be a good candidate for fly ball or agility. She gets along good with the resident dogs... especially the boys. She loves to chew on bones and look through the doggie toy box for something fun to play with. Destiny is 1.5 years old and weighs 12 pounds. She has not been tested with young children... but does very well with the teenagers that frequent her foster home. Everyone that comes to the door is greeted with a wagging tail and body; she is very sweet and wants to please. Her foster family feels that Destiny should not be placed in a home with children under the age of 8 years. We are working on her potty training. Destiny mastered the doggie door the first day in her foster home, but does have an occasional accident in the house. For the most part she does her "business" outside. Destiny absolutely loveees going for walks... she gets very excited when she sees the harnesses and leashes come out. However, her foster Mom thinks she probably had never been walked on a leash prior to coming into foster care, so she needs some training in this area. Destiny needs to be on a leash or in a secure fenced in area when she is outside. She has a very strong prey drive and should not be placed in a home with cats. Destiny loves to cuddle next to you and sleep under the covers in the bed. She is looking for a loving family that will fulfill her "Destiny".
