Meet A'Ja

They say there is a lid for every pot and I am looking for my lid! I'm A'ja and I have recently lost my owner so I'm now on the lookout for that special someone who is ready for a loyal companion. I am a 12 years old Rat Terrier/Chihuahua and at 17 pounds, a bit on the curvy side. I am house broken, crate and leash trained but would really prefer to be with my person than alone in a crate. Daily walks are great along with couch sitting. When you are gone, I am able to stay alone in the house without a problem. I get along with other small dogs, but not cats and prefer my own personal space. I don't think I would do well with young pups who have a lot of energy and expect me to entertain them. Older respectful children are welcome, but in all honesty, I would love a retired adult who is ready for the quiet life. I am a laid back gal with lots of love and life left to give. I could likely live in a house with a fenced yard or an apartment. If you are in the market for a sweet laid back gal, give me a ring and let's see if we are a match!

My adoption fee is $75 and includes my spay/neuter, vaccinations, wellness exam, heartworm test, and microchip! If you're interested in meeting/adopting me, please visit and fill out the form! We do adopt out of state with vet references and video home check. *Adopter is responsible for coming to get the dog and returning the dog if the adoption does not work out*

*Remember, dogs are pack animals. Because of this, Rescue One does not adopt to outdoor-only homes. Pets are family and are not disposable. Please make sure that you are 100% committed to a pet before considering adding one to your home.

We are a foster-based organization, and we need more fosters to help us save more animals! If you’re interested in saving lives just like the one you’re reading about, fill out a foster app here. To foster dogs:
