Dilly appears to be a Rat Terrier and Italian Greyhound mix. She is about a year old and is the youngest member of my pack. I adopted her in December 2017. She was turned in to the Humane Society of Tuolumne County in Jamestown, CA when her owner could not find homes for her and her two brothers. Known at the shelter as "Vixey", she was the biggest of the three puppies. She had been at the shelter for about a month. I had been diligently searching for a Jack Russell Terrier rescue for about eight months with no luck. Browsing through the Rat Terriers at Petfinder.com, I saw her photos (see above) and instantly fell in love. I drove up that weekend to adopt her. That JRT will have to wait.

She settled in quickly with the rest of the crew. At first, Grizzy was a bit sulky about the addition but he's over it. The two of them play together every day. Dilly weighs about ten pounds. She can run like the wind and can jump sky high. She is crazy about food which makes training tricks a breeze. She was initially afraid of cars and car rides, as well as men and children. But all of those fears are gone now! She still has some destructive puppy outbursts (loves to shred and eat paper). She has the silliest howl while the other dogs are barking. Lots more photos coming soon.
