    Hi My name is Hunter...... I am 6 years old but I act like I am 3. I am a beagle/terrier mix who weighs around 18lbs I love my foster family, they have spoiled me rotten !! I am timid when you first get to know me, but I am not aggressive at all. Unless there is food, then I am a scavenger, after all I am a hound! You have to watch me I had to fight for my food my foster mom thinks. When you aren't looking, I make my move I never hurt anyone, I am just after food! My foster mom thinks I got left outside a lot because I don't like to go into the backyard and have the door close. I will just sit by the door until someone lets me in. I ... (Read More)do have accidents in the house occasionally. I really don't do that on purpose but, it is because I am afraid you will leave me outside and forget me. My foster mom leaves the back door open so that I can go outside and come right back in. I love to snuggle and I am happiest lying next to you. I sleep every night with my human foster brother. He has nightmares and I help him sleep. I can point too because my foster mom said who ever had me before used me to hunt. But I don't hunt, I am a lover! I will do good with other dogs it will just take a little time. I don't mind cats and birds too but I like to chase cats and tell them I am the boss. Do you want to be my Fur ever home I would love to snuggle with you Right now I have heartworm disease, but I am working on getting that all cleared up so I can be nice and healthy for my forever home!! Hunter is current on vaccinations, neutered, and micro chipped. If you are interested in Hunter, please fill out an adoption application at (Less)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Jack, the Tug MASTER! This young man of 7 is a tug and fetch fanatic! Anytime you are a champion sportsman, you have to be selective about your inner circle. King Jack (does that sound too much like 'The Rock?') won't admit just anyone to his posse. Like other star athletes, he does need to meet people on his terms!! After a good round of fetch or tug, he's the ultimate snuggler. And, watch your pillow folks-Jack often burrows into bed with you, welcome or not!! Who needs a body pillow with Jack around?! LOL Jack would benefit from basic obedience training to boost his ego, as he could use some confidence building. He would ... (Read More)possibly be a great candidate for Parcour, Flyball, or agility. Due to his zest for the outdoors, he will need a securely fenced-in yard to prevent him from going too long for the pass.He is smart and lets his foster parents know when he needs to go outside or is hungry, and will get very excited if you ask "Do you need to go outside?" or "Are you hungry?' Like many terriers, Jack views his crate as his refuge and 'burrow.' While housebroken in his foster home, we encourage adopters to expect any dog to require an adjustment period. Jack does need to be given limited house privileges because he gets a bit enthusiastic about squeezing the Charmin or seeing how much of a 'picker upper' the Bounty is once it's shredded! If only he could be reimbursed for his quality assurance tests! Jack is fully vetted, including micro chip which will be registered to his new family when finalizing his adoption. He is a Jack Russell/Rat Terrier mix. His adoption fee is $200.00 Wag N Train Terrier Rescue adopts only to people living in states neighboring Nebraska and requires the adopter to travel to Omaha, NE to pick up their newly adopted dog. We do not transport or fly our rescue dogs. A securely fenced yard is necessary to adopt one of our terriers. Please note, invisible or underground fencing is not considered secure or appropriate containment for terriers.Adoption applications can be found at (Less)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Finley is an approximately 8 month old male Terrier mix. He weighs about 11 pounds. A little bit about him: Any sudden moves and he runs away but will slowly warm up to whoever is around him. Loud noises tend to scare him. He doesn't like loud voices. When he is afraid, he runs to foster mom for protection. He gets along well with all his fur siblings. Not sure about cats. Loves to play with tennis balls; shreds them into little pieces after he has chewed the fuzziness off (so maybe tennis balls aren't a good toy for him :) ) He does like to chew still so puppy chew toys would be best. He has a few quirks, he likes to take one piece of food ... (Read More)out of his bowl at a time. He will circle behind you when filling up his bowl, then sneak up on it. He tends to be very shy around new people at first but warms up quickly. Wants to be close to people once he knows you. (Less)

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