  • Dog's Original Name: Mario

Mario came to us as a re-homing because his owners could not physically handle him. On a leash he looses some of his manors and pulls a little just because he is excited what is around him and he wants to explore. 


Mario was licked up by the KBTF in Manhattan during hurricane Mathew. He was heading to Baltimore, but becuase of the weather conditions, he ended up with our Rescue Coordinator in Georgia.  he is now heading back north to his permanent home in Baltimore.

He is active and has the heart of a 3 year old Kerry. He wants to be around his human.  When you approach him in a fenced yard he will free jump, and get his head and shoulders above a 5 ft fence.   

He is relatively quiet untill he hears you, then he will bark to be in the same room with you.  He loves to sleep on the floor beside where ever you are.

Mario needs a home that is familiar with a terrier temperametn and knows how to be alpha.

Other Dogs: Yes

He gets along in a house full of dogs from 3 months old to a senior at 14 year old. 

Cats: Maybe

We have not tested mario with cats.

Children: Yes

He has been great with the foster family's 8 year old son.

He ha no serious health problems.

On a leash he looses some of his manors and pulls a little just because he is excited what is around him and he wants to explore.  He has his basic command down and has not had any accidents in the house loose or in his crate.
