Adopt Josafina

Female Rat Terrier


Meet Josafina! She is around two years old, and is a pocket-sized sweetheart! She was rescued from the local shelter, but is in a loving foster home waiting for the right family to come along!

Josafina is a pup who loves to follow her foster (dog) brother around the house! She does tend to get spooked with a lot of noise, so her foster parents are helping her get very comfortable in the house. In addition to getting along great with her doggie sibling, she is a champion doggy-door-user! Her foster mom says she picked it up in no time. She also is house trained and loves her crate. She likes to sleep in her crate and rest in there when she tuckers out!  

Josafina enjoys getting pets and head scratches, but prefers to be the initiator of affection. Given her unknown past, she may not totally trust the humans quite yet! An ideal home for her is one with other pups to help her learn the ropes of being a pet, and one with patient people who will let her adjust to her new surroundings.

This darling pup is deserving of the perfect furever home. Could it be with you? Apply to adopt Josafina today!

Josafina is available for pre-adoption only at this time, as she is heartworm positive. Heartworm disease is a non-contagious and treatable condition in dogs, but is fatal if left untreated. For more information about the spread, treatment, and prevention of heartworms visit:
