Dogs Needing Homes


Breed: Terrier

Age: Adult
Sex: Female
Size: Small
Description: Mattie is a a four year old, 18 pound, super friendly little girl, in fact she "smiles" when she is really happy. She loves to go on walks, is really good in the car, loves to snuggle with you on the couch or in bed, is completely potty trained, and does not need to be crated during the day. She gets along well with other dogs (big and small). She has a few little quirks that we are working on like showing some possessive growling when other unknown dogs approach her when she is next to you at the dog park (she is fine if she is by herself), or if she is on a leash. Mattie has a strong predatory response to rabbits, squirrels, and other furry little creatures. With this in mind she would be best suited for a home where there are no other little critters - including cats. With those few little quirks she would make a great addition to someone's family - I really enjoy her, and everyone comments on how cute/pretty she is!!

Mattie is a sweetheart of a girl, she is spayed, and up to date with shots. She is also heartworm and intestinal parasite negative. Mattie is also micro-chipped. Her adoption fee is $330

You must fill out an adoption application before you are allowed to meet the animal. Please complete the adoption application located on our website.

Small Dog Rescue of MN does not negotiate the adoption fee on our dogs and we must charge sales tax on all adoption fees in order to comply with Minnesota state law. Please note that SDR is philisophically opposed to the idea of buying and selling animals, and we support any future legislation that would remove sales tax from adoption fees. Until then, however, we must charge it.

We are offering a microchip placement for your resident dog for small donation to our rescue

Please note that we do not have a shelter, and all dogs are in foster homes. Since we strive to provide the best possible care for our animals, sometimes we cannot answer emails promptly. Please allow 48 hours for us to respond to you.

You must be 18 years of age to make an adoption request
