Nutmeg is a 3 year old rat terrier/Chihuahua mix who we think may have had puppies recently. She's tiny and wants nothing more than to sit in someone's lap to be pet. I'm guessing she'd do best in a home without small children as she is a bit snippy with the other dogs when they get too close to her. However, she doesn't seem to be feeling well and she did just go through a plane ride to get here. She is a lucky girl - the Ratbone volunteer said that it was so close that they were just about taking her off the table before she was going to be PTS.
Mango is 5 month old rat terrier/beagle mix and I swear that she has a little bit of "Tigger" mixed in there too. She doesn't walk, she gallops. She doesn't wag, she just swings her whole butt. You can't help but smile when you see her exuberance. She's the biggest foster we've had so far and is between 15 and 20 pounds. I'm wondering if the rattie part of her was a Decker terrier (giant rat terrier.) She'll still be a small to medium dog, but she's no petite flower, that's for sure.
The two are like oil and vinegar, but so far seem to be able to keep to their separate corners. Even as gangly and full of the puppy crazies as Mango is, she knows what a lip snarl means and steers clear of Nutmeg.
At the top you see Nutmeg, and below is Mango.
