T-Rex is an adorable little terrier mix who is white with black patches. He has the cutest little face, with eyes that will melt your heart.
T-Rex is a small dog with a big personality! He loves to play with other dogs and has so much fun with squeaky toys. He is also a huge cuddlebug. He always wants to be sitting right with you when he is not off playing and will settle right into your lap in no time.<p>T-Rex was born with front legs that did not straighten (see Health section below). He is currently recovering from surgery (see photo below the profile) and on exercise restriction. But he is just as happy to be in your lap as he is running around, so it has not seemed to bother him too much. T-Rex will not be ready for a new home until early- to mid-March and will need a home where he can be kept relatively quiet until he is fully recovered. See him in the video below, before surgery.<p><iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/f1D9yQ9ag4A" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe>
T-Rex is up-to-date on his vaccinations and has a microchip. He was born with elbows that were not quite right. He has had surgery to fix them and is currently recovering. With lots of care and careful monitoring of his activity until at least April, he is expected to do well.
T-Rex was brought into IAR with his sister, Electra.
IAR subsidizes post-adoption professional training with Jane Marshall (www.cheerydogs.com) to encourage a life-long and successful bond between the dog and the adopter. Group classes for puppies and adult dogs are provided at a substantial discount to IAR adopters.
