    Camari is a cute Rat Terrier, possibly mix who is about 4 years old and 11 pounds. She came into the main city shelter and is somewhat on the shy side. She is in a wonderful foster home that is helping her come out of her shell more and more everyday. Camari would prefer a quieter home as she is still fearful of new situations. She likes to be around the people she is familiar with and gets lots of affection. Given time, Camari will come out of her shell and flourish! She also enjoys the company of other dogs. Interested? Please visit to complete our quick online adoption application from your computer or desktop (not a ... (Read More)phone). A representative will email you within 24-hours.

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    This little one I called Pepe or pepper was on the EU list for being Heart worm Positive, my friend in Texas saw him at the shelter and asked if I would help him. Of course I could not say No. He is just such a little lover boy. This poor guy not only had Heart worms but also needed many teeth pulled and needed to be fixed, he has been through the mill poor guy. He has now completed his Heart worm treatment been fixed all shots and micro chipped, thinking he is about 6 and a chi rat terrier mix about 7.5 lbs gained since he was fixed. Was 6lbs, but still very small. Pepe would LOVE to find a loving home to call his own with all the attention ... (Read More)he so does deserve. Fenced yard would be best for him. He loves my grandson the most, so good with kids. But my grandson is quite the animal lover and great with the dogs here. (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.
