    My husband and I are needing to adopt BOTH of our dogs. They are the same breed. Chihuahua/Rat terrier mix. It is mother & son. This picture is of the son. The mother is smaller and black. They are both adults and very calm. They do not bark a lot. Only if someone knocks or comes in but they do not bark continuously. The mother is very calm and gets along with everyone. The brown one pictured has a little temper. Once he warms up to you he is fine. He is not good with kids that approach his face too fast. These are both great dogs with a long life left in them. We recently had a baby and we do not give these dogs the love & attention they ... (Read More)deserve. We desperately need to find them a home. Both are crate trained and you can have their cages. They MUST stay together. Neither dog has ever walked on a leash so a fenced in yard is a must! We ask that you be an animal lover and take good care of our dogs. Both dogs are fixed. (Less)

Unfortunately 3 yrs ago she lost her male owner and 1 yr. ago lost her female owner. We took her in but it's not the appropriate fit for our house. She's sweet and loves to cuddle but needs some training, time and commitment due to years of lack of structure and discipline. Seeking a better, appropriate life for this sweetheart.

Personality: High Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    All Trixie wants for Christmas is a real home who will love and care for her forever! Trixie was dumped with her mom and siblings on a rural road and then in a no kill very rural shelter for a year with no socializing. She is shy of strangers, better in a home without children not because she's bad but because she wouldn't know how to act around them. Once she adjusted to being handled she was very easy to leash train, crate train and all around did great and has a more confident energetic personality then her 2 sisters. She tends to bark at things when she is outside or hears something, hunting dog personality. Quite when crated and in the ... (Read More)house, but would probably bark at things outside a window if she could see something. She was intimidated by our bossy cat, current on vaccinations, spayed, and microchipped. She was heartworm negative when tested last year and has been on preventative. She's good with the dogs she is with but will be bossy with them if she can get away with it. She is dominant over her very shy, submissive sister. She really doesn't know any commands but would love someone who would like to teach her some fun tricks, and that there are other great people out there besides us. She is now almost 2 years old and weighs 28 pounds. Vet's phone number you use currently or in the past is required to adopt for a reference. We have 30 rescued dogs of all sizes all praying for a real home! Please do not consider a dog for Christmas unless you want a dog as a family member for its whole life. (Less)

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