    Meet Beatrice, an exquisitely eared Rat Terrier, who was rescued with five other dogs from a backyard breeder. For most of her 13 years, Beatrice lived in a crate with brief visits to a small yard covered with brick pavers. The first time she set foot on grass was a shock, but she adjusted quickly. Today Beatrice is learning how wonderful life as a dog can be! And you'd never know where she came from as she is one of the happiest, friendliest dogs you'll ever meet. She wags her whole body in joy at being petted and talked to, and she was in awe when she discovered the TV in her foster home. (She's a perfect TV buddy.) Beatrice has no teeth--a condition which doesn't keep her from enjoying meals or licking you profusely but does give her a cute little "tongue-out" grin. Beatrice has no issues with dogs or cats. In fact, she seems friendly with all other animals. She takes a few minutes to warm up to new people but has no fear or aggression issues. She has even met the grandchildren of her foster parents and was happy to get affection from them. Beatrice is working very hard to understand house-training, but because she lived in a crate for so long, it's a slow process. You'll be able to help by taking her outside for brief walks on a frequent, regular schedule so that she'll have plenty of opportunities to "perform" and learn what's expected of her. And when the accidents happen, they are tiny since Beatrice herself weighs only 10 lbs. Wouldn't you like to share a dog's absolute joy as she discovers life beyond the crate? That's possible if you open your home and heart to Beatrice. More photos of this bat-eared beauty are available at
