Animal ID: 14931Penny (female)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

Personality: Low Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Needs Vaccinations 

    **FOUND IN LIBERTY NEAR 291 HWY AND BROWN ST!** This cute little girl is Penny! She is only about 11 lbs, somewhere in the neighborhood of 5 years old, and is most likely spayed. Penny really likes to dance and stand up and jump for her treats! She hasn't been at the shelter with us for very long, so we don't know much about her just yet. She was found in Liberty by a concerned citizen, and so is being held for a stray period for now. If not claimed by her owner by 11/03/14, Penny will be made available for adoption. Penny has been given a general dewormer, a distemper-combo vaccine, and a bordetella vaccine, as well as treated for her ... (Read More)fleas. She is most likely spayed, but we will make certain she is prior to going to her new home - if she is not redeemed by her owner! Her adoption fee is $80, which includes everything except for her rabies vaccination and heartworm test. These are additional costs paid by her adopter at the time of pickup from the vet clinic. If you are interested in meeting Penny, or think you may know who her owner is, please call the Liberty Animal Shelter at 816-439-4791! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-10-03-00496Jack (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Jack is a sweet boy. He weighs about 13 pounds We rescued him in CA about a year ago. He lived with our 3 other dogs with no problem. Recently we moved to Missouri and all was fine until 3 weeks ago. For some reason he does not like our other neutered male rat terrier and will fight with him. We never know when it will happen. It may be a dominance issue since the older alpha dog could not make the trip to Missouri with us. Jack does not fight with the spayed female rat terrier- just the male. He is fine with people and children. He loves attention. In fact, he craves him. He loves to be picked up and cuddled. He loves to play ball and will ... (Read More)play retrieve all day long. At this point I think he would fit perfectly in a one dog home. It breaks our heart to let him go but it is in his best interest if we rehome him. (Less)

Diva has had numerous seizures in the past but they recently stopped due to the daily medication she takes. She has to have a full blood panel done every 6-12 months to check the levels and to make sure they are not damaging her organs. This is Diva , her owner didn't want her any more so they gave her and her 2 week old baby to Furry Kids. Diva is a very sweet and a loving little girl. She is pretty much housebroke, but since she is on medication for her seizures it makes her have ... (Read More)to go potty a lot more . Her foster mom crates her ( in a plastic crate only) with potty pads when she is out of the house to give her a option to relieve herself and to also protect her if she was to have a seizure. Diva's foster mom says this little girl is just the most loving furry kid you will ever meet. She loves all other animals, children, adults. She loves to go for car rides and walks. She is always happy and just a joy to foster. Diva has not had a seizure since August 2012 so the vet feels that her medication is at the right level now to keep her from having any more.

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