    Nash is a 4 year old Rat Terrier mix who weighs around 20 pounds. He is a spunky little guy who is ready to be your best friend! Nash is the perfect guy to snuggle with on cold winter nights, take walks with when the weather warms up, and is always up for playtime in the backyard. Nash needs an active family who want a dog that likes to play and keep on the move. Nash is crate trained, but if kenneled for several hours he is ready for an outlet for his energy. Once he has run off some energy he is ready to cuddle with you for the night. Sometimes he is so snuggly you think he is trying to crawl right through you. He walks well on a ... (Read More)leash and is also a good passenger in the car. He is a dog you could take almost anywhere dogs are allowed. Nash gets along with other dogs, gets along with cats and all people! He would love to have a playmate that can keep up with him. He is one of the most athletic dogs we have had in rescue. He would do well in a canine sport like flyball or agility. He is a very smart dog that could learn lots of tricks and commands. He would do best with an owner who likes to train and keep their dog engaged in what they are doing. Nash is up to date on vaccinations, neutered, microchipped and heartworm tested.

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