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

    I rescued Tink as a tiny puppy who was infested with fleas. My living situation is changing and I am forced to find her a new owner who will love her and care for her as much as I do. She is an old girl but you wouldn't know it by her energy level. She can bounce off the walls or nap with you all day. She tolerates cats but she has little dog syndrome and thinks she can fight any dog. She has nipped at stranger's heels before and is an avid barker. Tink really is the sweetest thing for the most part and would make an excellent companion and lap dog. She isn't afraid to steal your sandwich if you turn your back, however. Please give ...

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious 

    Meet Jack. He is a 9 year old, neutered rat terrier. He is also up to date on his vaccinations. We have made the difficult decision to re-home him. He has developed some aggressive behaviors with the our young children and the other pets. Jack's vet believes this is likely due to his age and his difficulty tolerating a multi-pet household. We believe he would benefit from a family with no other pets and no children or with older children. Jack is very loving and enjoys attention, and still has plenty of energy to play fetch, but is content cuddling in your lap. If you believe you are the family to meet Jack's needs, please contact Rebecca at ... (Read More)812-718-1304. I request texts only during the work day, and would be available for calls in the evenings if needed. Vet references may be requested. Thank You! (Less)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Kismet: 2 year old rat terrier/chihuahua 7-8 lbs potty trained good with kids/dogs/people 'Petite & dainty Kismet has the best characteristics of both her parents which make her unique and so enjoyable to have around. She loves to snuggle and cuddle and get pampered like a chihuahua; but she also is feisty, daring and intelligent as is a rat terrier. She's a 'bug hunter extraordinaire' and will ruthlessly trail and catch those pesky flies which sneak in open doors. You'll never need a fly swatter with her on patrol! Kismet, or 'Kizzie' as we fondly call her, gets along well with other dogs but would also be fine as an 'only ... (Read More)child'; she's able to keep herself entertained and attention from her people keeps her satisfied. She is potty trained and not particularly interested in toys, nor does she feel the need to chew things up and get into mischief. She isn't too energetic but does enjoy brisk walks and car rides. Although a she's very affectionate and cuddly (not to mention cute), Kismet is strong-willed so will need a home in which she is given rules and boundaries or she will start acting like she's the boss. Kizzie's adoption fee is $200; she's spayed, microchipped and current on vaccinations.' (Less)

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