Rescue Me ID: 17-06-24-00063Ben (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Ben is seven years old and he was surrendered to the kill shelter with his brother Jerry. They cannot be adopted together because together they become very protective and not social. When they are separated they are both wonderfully affectionate and social dogs. Then is about 11 pounds, and really loves the ladies! He is more frightened of men but not aggressive. He would do best in a home without small children as he's a tad more skittish then his brother. They both get along with other dogs that are of small breed. The shelter has given us some extra time to find him a home and we really hope someone will step up to save their lives.

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