Wag N Train Rescue



Shih Tzu/Maltese/Terrier Mix * Young * Female * Small

Meet Tupelo

Tupelo has had a rough two years of life.  This 19 lb., Shih Tzu/Maltese/Terrier mix beauty is from a home in rural south MS where she and her siblings were used to breed puppies and her knowledge of the world was limited to an outdoor pen.

Initially Tupelo was a bit anxious, but she has quickly adapted to indoor life as a family member in her foster home.  Her house training skills are mastered for “#1.” She does tend to defecate in her crate, but this is not uncommon for dogs who have been made to live in confined spaces and she is a quick study.  She does need to be fed separately as she is a bit protective of her food, again extremely common for a dog with her history.

Tupelo has been fully vetted and will be groomed once her spay incision has healed.  

Tupelo startles easily.  Therefore, her forever family MUST have a securely fenced-in yard (preferably wood privacy fence), and no resident or visiting young children.  She is learning from the dogs in her foster home and loves to play with them, so we are asking she have a fur sibling in her forever home.

Tupelo needs humans with pet parenting experience, time and patience.  She seeks out attention and wants to be with people. She is interested in toys but hasn’t quite figured them out.  She has never been on a leash and her foster family will begin working on this skill once she has gained a bit more confidence.

Tupelo’s adoption fee is $400.00. Adoption applications available on our web site, www.wagntrainterrierrescue.com  This fee will be reduced to $350.00 with proof of enrollment in obedience classes with a certified trainer.

Suggested adoption donation for Tupelo is a minimum of $400 and goes toward the high cost of veterinary care for our rescue dogs. Wag N Train Terrier Rescue adopts to other geographical areas as long as we can find a local volunteer to perform the courtesy home visit, and requires the adopter to travel to Omaha, NE to pick up their newly adopted dog. We do not arrange transport, or fly our rescue dogs without a "pet nanny". A securely fenced yard is necessary to adopt one of our terriers. Please note: invisible or underground fencing is not considered secure or appropriate containment for terriers.
