Rat Terrier & Italian Greyhound









Hi, please let me introduce myself because I am hoping that you will find me so irresistible that you will take me home with you today. If not today, then I hope that I have made such an impression that you will come back for me real soon. Waiting is such a hard thing to do but if it leads to a permanent loving home, I am willing to be patient. I like where I am now but, unfortunately, it is unrealistic for me to stay here forever. I was born May 4, 2020 to a very loving mother. My father’s identity is, regretfully, in question. My mother was rescued and saved from a life or death situation on April 8, 2020. It was soon discovered that she was pregnant. She is possibly a Rat Terrier and an Italian Greyhound mix. That’s because she looks like a miniature greyhound. She has been described as regal, stately and even majestic. She weighs about 12 lbs. I share many of her characteristics and expect that I will also be described the same when I grow up. There were 6 in my litter, 5 males and one female. I am one of the 5 males. I know I will miss all of them terribly but we are all aware that we cannot stay together. If I am lucky enough to be adopted, I know there is a chance that I will be given a new name. For now, however, my name is Rembrandt. I am told that I was given that name because I have a white tip on the end of my tail and it looks like a paint brush so I have the name of one of the world’s great painters. I’ve grown to like it. When I become a member of a new loving family. I am willing to assume a new name. You can call me anything you want. I just hope you call me yours!

If you are interested in me, please send an email to to get more information on how to fill out an application and have a great meet and greet to see if we are a match made in heaven.
