Animal ID: 432565Winnie (female)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Temperament 
Health: Vaccinations Current 

    This little girl was shy and a little withdrawn at the shelter. She is now being fostered and is showing that she appreciates affection and is very at home in the house. I believe she is housebroken as she has never had an accident in the house. She is even playful, running circles around the other foster dog out in the yard. She is about 15 pounds and probably less than three years old. Feel free to contact Phyllis at phyllisblaha@gmail.com to ask any questions or set up a meet.

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Who isn't smitten with Curious George? No matter your age, the inquisitive little fellow who always seems to get into one scrape after another has, in all likelihood, captured your heart. Meet Lulu the identical twin in real character. She will undoubtedly steal your heart to where she will get away with all unpredictability. She loves to ride in a car nicely, sneak kisses I should add all while she takes in the sights. She enjoys going everywhere you go as your best buddy would. She especially enjoys going into pet stores in search of the best of the best in treats while scoping out ever isle and sniffing her way through it all. She will ... (Read More)sit and give paw and may even do a back flip for a cookie or two. She is snuggly, cuddly and everything in between. She is smart as a whip so she can be trained to do anything. She will sit on command, do touch and is learning 'shake'. She loves to play and will run and chase her foster mom's two dogs. She has unbelievable amounts of energy, but also knows when it's time to unwind. She lives in a tiny package no more the 32 pounds and more than likely will remain her little size. She doesn't whine or speak too loud, but will let you know when she has to go in a fury! She is a lovely little dog with so much love and affection for all, dogs, cats and people big and small! Give this little girl a home she deserves one of her own. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Rat Terrier in Alabama
    Rat Terrier Dogs can make good pets in Alabama if they match your IifestyIe. The Rat Terrier is a small breed of hunting dog also sometimes known as a Feist. Rat Terriers are vivacious, playful, and bold. This breed is great with children. Adult Rat Terriers adapt well to adoption. Rat Terriers are very smart and trainable. This breed can live in an apartment but needs plenty of vigorous exercise each day. Rat Terriers enjoy romping in a fenced yard, but because they are enthusiastic diggers, fences should be buried or reinforced around the base.
