    Lucy is part of a group of dogs I have been asked to find homes for. She and the other dogs were used for breeding when their owner passed away suddenly. There is no one to care for the dogs the way they deserve. If homes cannot be found in a short time they will be taken to the pound. I am desperate to find them homes.

Rescue Me ID: 15-03-26-00417  (male)

Rat Terrier Mix   

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Low Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Abused/Neglected, Fearful/Anxious 

    This little guy is totally house trained and was found just wandering the street. He was terrified of humans but followed my little dog into my yard where I fed him and managed to get him to trust me enough to let me bathe all the horrible fleas off of him. When you walk behind him or up to him he cowers like you're going to beat him, so it's obvious where ever he came from he was abused and beaten, so obviously I'm not letting him go back there ever again. He's just so loving and a quick learner so will train easily and definitely needs to be neutered, but seems very healthy otherwise. He needs to learn how to walk on a leash but we're ... (Read More)working on that and will probably have that down by the time you decide he's the one for you, just a little bit of practice is all he needs, as he was probably just never taken out before. He now follows me everywhere, so just wants to be loved. I don't think he should go to a home where there are small children as I think this would be too stressful for him and I think a very calm household would be just the ticket for this sweetheart of a guy. I haven't heard him bark at all, he's very quiet and is very affectionate. Please give Rocco (that's what we called him), a loving forever home, it's what he so deserves. I put in the posting 'good with adults but not kids' and I meant not little kids. I really dont think he could handle little ones pulling him about, it seems he's been through a lot and he needs a break with a nice calm family. He seems like he doesn't know how to play or anything, so someone who has the time and patience to spend with this gorgeous boy. Thank you so much for taking the time to look. (Less)

Rat Terrier    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Cats, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Woodrow is an awesome little dog! However, he HATES cats. Apparently the local animal shelter I adopted him from 4 months ago was not aware of this issue. And I have two cats (and another dog). We have tried everything to get Woodrow to stop chasing/attacking the cats to no avail. Therefore Woodrow needs a new home where he can be happy. He is so very loving and sweet and loves to play BALL! The Ball is the best thing in the ENTIRE WORLD! He is completely housebroken and uses a doggie door like a champ. He gets along with our other smaller male dog, but seems to have issues with bigger dogs. He is great with all humans he meets. ...

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Tink is a 6-year old Chihuahua/rat terrier mix. She and another dog were brought to the shelter, they had been surrendered by their owners with no reason why. Her buddy was adopted quickly but Tink was left behind. Whenever people would come to the shelter to look at her, she would hide in the kennel and not come out, so she was overlooked. She is very sweet but on the shy side upon first meeting new people. She is coming out of her shell now and just started playing with toys. She's not a barker and loves to just snuggle in your lap! She is good with other dogs and cats as well. Her ideal home would be someone who wants a mellow lap ... (Read More)dog, but loves going on walks. No small children that are active. She just had blood and dental work done, she is healthy, up-to-date on shots, spayed and microchipped. If you are interested in Tink, please complete the on-line application as she does not always attend the weekly adoption event at PETCO on Saturdays.

    This little terrier puppy is one of the 5 dogs our neighbors abandoned when they skipped out last week. This one's been difficult to photograph since he runs away and hides. I think he'll be a great companion dog once he's figured out no one is going to hurt him.

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Adult


    Hi%BD'%BD| My name is Jenny (at least that is what I am being called now). The people that rescued me from being alone on the streets say I am 6 years old (though to be honest%BD'%BD|I feel like a pup). I am glad they opened their hearts to me and took me in. I wasn't doing very well on my own. I found it very hard to snuggle or run and play when there wasn't anyone there to share it with. Now that I have been fed and nursed back to health it is time for me to find my 'forever' home as the loving people that have taken me in are unable to care for me much longer. As I have discovered, life isn't always easy. I know that given the ... (Read More)chance%BD'%BD|and a little bit of time%BD'%BD|I can become a great companion to somebody that knows what it feels like to be lonely. I offer constant love and affection as well as a few tricks I have picked up over the years. I remember how to sit and offer my paw and I have a little 'spin' dance I like to do when I am excited to see you. I am not a big dog, but I have a big heart. I am not perfect, but if you can try and be patient and understanding with me%BD'%BD|I promise to try to be patient and understanding with you. I am looking forward to meeting you, Jenny (Less)

    My husband and I are looking for a new home for our Chihuahua, Henry. Henry as been with us for the past 13 years and we love him much, but our plan to go back to Germany in the next year and the job related preparation for that move leads us to find him a good, loving new home. We are from NY, but currently in LA to find Henry a new home here rather than in NY. In 2009 we lived in San Diego for a year and we feel he was happiest here under the blue sky and warm sun.

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    We have had Hunter for 9 years. He is a great dog! A few years ago my husband and I started a family. He used to be an indoor dog, but with new babies, he ended up becoming an outdoor dog. Hunter is great with our kids and other dogs; however, we don't have time to give him the love, affection, and home environment he deserves. I feel horrible because there is absolutely nothing wrong with him. I just want to give him another chance to be in a loving family environment once again. Please only contact me Mon - Fri between 7:30 am - 4:00 pm at 562-896-9340. Thank you.

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Jingle Belle is an interesting combination of terrier (we think Toy Fox Terrier or Rat Terrier) and Dachshund. She was found almost on our doorstep one morning, left in a crate overnight. Jingle (or Belle, whichever you prefer) is about 18 months old and doesn't seem to know much about the world. She is somewhat shy but once she warms up to you, she is yours forever. Jingle seems to prefer women and is afraid of most men (with exposure to the right man, though, she will probably come around). She gets along well with most dogs but wants to be the one and only lap dog - she'll growl if other dogs want to share in the love. We think ... (Read More)with kind, firm training she will come out of this. After all, she has been through quite a bit and wants to hold onto whatever security she might have. She is a good watchdog but only barks when someone approaches her car or her house. She loves to play fetch with toys. She is also very sweet and loving and hopefully will find her forever home soon.

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    FOSTER HOME NEEDED! Callie is a sweet little dog looking for a forever home. Her mom is going into a nursing home, and there aren't any relatives who can take Callie.

She isn't barky or clingy like some small dogs can be. Callie has lived in a home her whole life, so doesn't have any baggage or issues. She's a great dog that will be very easy to adopt. Callie can be shy initially, but is very loving. She walks nicely on a leash and doesn't pull. At 7 yrs old, Callie is the perfect ... (Read More)age!

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi! I am Prieto! I'm a 3-year old loving PATTERDALE TERRIER. I am a bit shy at first, but once I know I can trust you (especially if you give me food) you will be my favorite person. I am very loving and love to play fetch! I am also crate trained, potty trained and love walks. Since I am so little (only 10 lbs) large things may sometimes overwhelm me and I ask to be picked up. I also like it when things are calm around the house so I can relax. I love to give kisses and cuddle. My previous owners were a military family that fell in love with me after fostering me, but unfortunately were moving across country and could not keep me. Will ... (Read More)you be my furever one?

PIease Read Before Adopting a Rat Terrier in California
    Rat Terrier Dogs can make good pets in California 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.
