With that said, a weekend in foster did wonders and he has improved quite a bit. He walks well with a gentle leader and absolutely LOVES to play fetch.

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.
