    This is Aida. She is a 7 year old female, terrier mix. Aida is sweet, gentle, and very loyal. She is fairly low energy, loves to cuddle under blankets, and go on car rides. She also enjoys walks on the leash! She loves treats, usually jerky or rawhide. She will play tug of war and fetch with stuffed toys but prefers to do so 'on her own time'. Aida is kennel and house trained as well. I have had a cat in the past that she did extremely well with. She does ok with other low energy, small dogs. Larger, excitable dogs are intimidating for her. I adopted her from Lawrence, KS humane society 4 years ago. I really hoped I would be her ... (Read More)final and forever home. She has had two previous owners before myself. The first was an elderly couple who went to a nursing home and family could not keep her, the second was a family with young children. Aida is skiddish of many men and will do best with a single woman or with an elderly couple. (Less)

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