Adoptable Dog Of The Week – Kemp

Come on, get happy… just like Kemp, our Adoptable Dog of the Week from Kemp is an adult Rat Terrier mix from Grayslake, Illinois. He’s already neutered, housetrained, in need of an experienced adopter, not good with kids, and good with dogs.

Kemp’s Story:

Need a personal bouncer? Don’t laugh or make fun of me…I may be a small guy but I will make sure that no one comes uninvited… although don’t tell anyone, I can sometimes be bribed with a few treats. I consider myself as a connoisseur of cool people and have no interest in hanging out with the others. My entourage also includes dogs as I love to tease them into chasing me. I’m quite active and even have my own version of fetch: a person throws the toy, I pick it up and instead of bringing it back, I’ll tease you with a “come and get it” dance. When I’m done running around, I do one more circle before jumping right in your lap, ready for some cuddling time. So much in a small package…. come unwrap me!
