Rescue Me ID: 16-01-27-00389Galochka (female)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Male Dogs Only, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected,

    Galochka is a sweet, probably 6-8 year old, female chihuahua-rat terrier mix. She was in an abusive home where the mother had many small dogs, was trying to breed them for money, and let the children treat them very cruelly. I took her in as a foster dog but never really actively looked for a new placement for her. She is fine with my male dogs, but I have 4 other rescue dogs in the home and this makes her extremely nervous. The female dogs are somewhat aggressive to her and I have to keep them separated now. She chooses to spend most of her time in her little dog bed because the other dogs are too rough with her. She loves attention ... (Read More)and is extremely loyal. She just needs a home with only one other dog where she doesn't feel overwhelmed. She is good with kids, but gets nervous when they are too rough or in her face and will yelp due to her previous home situation. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-01-01-00085Timmy (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Cats, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Timmy is an 8-year old Rat Terrier Mix. He is approx 18 lbs and may lose a few more pounds with him settling in at about 15 lbs. We don't know much about how he got to be a little tubby (he was about 25 lbs when we got him) but we think it was partially due to inactivity/diet and his low thyroid. He takes a pill with his two meals and has never given us any problem with taking them. Timmy is a very easy-going dog. He likes to take walks and play fetch but otherwise prefers to hangout. He is pretty affectionate and loves to give kisses. He is non-destructive, house-trained, and sleeps in his crate with no coaxing (we don't even shut the door ... (Read More)anymore). He is good with older children (8+). He is a little slow to warm up to other dogs. He currently lives with a foster brother (2-year old maltese) and they coexist very well. Timmy doesn't play with him too much but when its time to go for a walk, he will engage and play a little. Timmy would do best in a home with a submissive dog who would give Timmy his space. (Less)

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.
