The newest member of our family...

A few weeks ago, my husband and I discussed adding a puppy to our family.
However, with Keira only having JUST gotten over the crazy puppy stage, Josh was reluctant to start over. So he cut me a deal instead of flat out telling me no. I could look for a small (Small?? Geez, who does he think I am? Paris Hilton?) dog that someone wanted to get rid of. Okay... so I did. I ended up with a (to put it lightly) lot of work, lol. We got her Saturday.
Meet Selphie.
1 year old
Supposed Jack Russell... but I see Rat Terrier in there.


The guy told us she was housebroken (which she is)
and that she'd been spayed, and generally made it out to sound like she was a pampered housepet. Oh God, I wish he'd been honest. It's not that there is anything wrong with a little work... but on the first day, I couldn't do much with her. She was a hellion. Holding her was out of the question. She bit my daughter in the face for petting her. She bit any part of me she could reach while I was bathing her, and she terrorized Keira. Oh yeah. And it took 2 baths to get the grime off of her. When he handed her over, he said, "Yeah, she's kinda dirty, we been keeping her on a chain in the back yard."
On a chain?? She's about 10 pounds!! And she was pretty badly sunburned. Aloe and plenty of shade here is healing that, and the vet said she looks good. Guy lost his job and decided that he needed to find homes for his 6 or 7 dogs. Geez.
Luckily, Selphie (we named her-- he said he knew that "she had a name when we got her" but that he couldn't remember. Ugh.) has calmed down some. The biting stopped, once she figured out that I wasn't going to let go when she did, and that it wasn't going to fly in this house. She's clean, sunburn is going away, vet approved her health, she's heartworm neg, worm free, and now UTD on her shots
She's a little ball of fire, and Keira and Caesar like her. Poe even likes her, and he hates the other two dogs!!
She's really smart, and I'm having a TON of fun teaching her little tricks. She's mastered "Sit" and I taught her to spin in a circle when I twirl my finger... it's adorable
Here's a couple more pics, since I'm sharing:






She really REALLY wanted that roll that Brianna had

What a great job you are doing with her! Project dogs take a little time but they can be the best dogs once they learn how to live in a house properly. Congrats and keep us updated!

(She) lol....
But yeah, I have a friend that has two rat terriers, and she said that she looks like her boys... I was pretty sure she wasn't a JRT like the guy said she was (purebred...bc he got her off of CL.) once I saw her, I figured she was either a Rat Terrier, or a JRT mix.

I am having a ton of fun. It reminds me of why I really do this
My first rescue was when I was 16. She was an 8 year old Pekingese. I had NO idea what I was doing, so I had to kind of learn as I went. She ended up being the best dog I had owned up til then
I was a little worried at first, tbh... He didn't tell us that she was a biter (He really didn't tell us anything) and the way she bit Brianna...
It was bad. Broke the skin and all.
BUT, that seems to have passed. I think it was just her venting her stress. I redirected to toys, and we haven't had any bites since.

I think she had honestly never been taught... which makes me sad. She is really very smart!

It seems like I always find the ones that really need me

Poe-- Owner got married and he and his wife moved to ATL, so asked if we would take the cat. He was a little under 8 when we got him, now he's a little over 9.


Maverick-- My daughter wanted a fluffy grey kitten with green eyes. This guy was the ONLY cat at the shelter when we went! He was 9 weeks old when we adopted him. He's almost 9 months old now. (and his tail is fluffier, lol)


Keira-- We were planning on hitting the shelter, but when we went to my friends pet supply shop to stock up on dog stuff, we found Keira hiding behind the counter. The person who bought her (From a breeder, supposedly. We have some paperwork, but I doubt the papers are any good, and besides, she's only a pet) left her up at the store because they got evicted for having her. They asked my friend to find someone to buy her. We consider it an adoption, because said pet shop doesn't sell puppies or kittens. She was worth every penny we spent getting her healthy too.


Caesar-- Was browsing CL and ran across his ad. Owner was desperate to find him a home, because he was moving out of state to live with his fiance, who was deathly allergic to dogs. (sigh) I answered a bunch of questions through email, but he wasn't thrilled that we had "small" kids and that we didn't have a fenced in yard (yet). But he agreed to meet us, and Caesar and my husband just clicked. Love at first sight for both of them, and Caesar came home with us that very night. And C loves the kids


And of course, now Selphie.
I think we're full now, lol

I just love rescue babies... they are always so grateful for everything.
