    DASH - escaped DEATH on a major turnpike on LONG ISLAND -- he's been waiting for MONTHS now for his forever home! Dashingly handsome and sweet as can be, why is it that nobody wants to open their heart and home to me ?!? DASH's STORY: Several months ago, Dash was found running in the streets. He was lucky enough to make it across Hempstead turnpike without being killed and fortunately ended up in a rescuers care . Months later, he still sits and waits for a family to call his own. Not only is he incredible with people and other dogs, (both big and small) but also has a sparkling personality. He currently lives with cats and is ok with ... (Read More)them, but likes to chase them. A home with a laid back cat or one without any would be best. We have also recently discovered that this little guy has an overactive thyroid. This is easily manageable. He will require meds 2 x per day and periodic blood tests. Dash needs a compassionate soul who will give him his medication and spoil him every day. He would do best in a home with children 10 and up, not because he is aggressive in any way , but because he sometimes becomes nervous with them running around and too much noise scares him. Dash has clearly been through enough and it is time for his forever home. Let's make it easy on this baby and find him the PERFECT family to give him the life he deserves! DASH: %8F located in East Meadow, NY %8FTransport available to an Approved Adopter NY/NJ/CT %8F rat terrier mix, neutered male, approximately 4 years young %8F Very sweet - ADORES PEOPLE %8F fully vetted, requires meds for thyroid- easily manageable and not costly %8F kids 10 and up (NOT aggressive just loud noises scare him) %8F DOG friendly and loves to play (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-03-29-00071Henry (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Senior

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

    Our 13 year old Henry needs a loving new retirement home. He is up to date with vaccinations, and is currently being treated for lyme. He's got only a few teeth left and might need an extraction at some point. Otherwise he's in good health. Henry enjoys laying in the sun and go for easy walks. While he gets along with both dogs and cats, the ideal home for him would be to live with a quiet person or couple and rather cats than another dog.

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    ADOPTION FEES REDUCED $50.00. Destiny is an 8 year old Decker Rat Terrier, weighs approx. 27 lbs. She is a very submissive girl. Since she was born she has had NO abuse-I took her in from a breeder that I have known a long time. Destiny as had only a few litters in her life. She was NOT a puppy mill dog. She has always been shy-once she trusts you she will do fine but it will take her about 6-8 weeks to be comfortable. She LOVES hot dogs and this helps her warm up. She will walk on a leash and MUST have a fenced yard. She always acts like the door is going to attack her when she goes in or out of it-she RUNS past them for some odd ... (Read More)reason. There has never been a time where she was pinched in one. She would do best in an older female home as too many people upset her. She is crate trained, doggy door trained. She would need time to learn to trust as well as time to adjust to a new routine. Person must be willing to give her the time to adjust. She does have a great heart and can adjust to a new family. She is not a big barker, she holds her front leg up when nervous. She is a very sweet girl given time. Delivery options available. Questionnaire, references, and contract required on any dog posted. HEADING TO FLA. NEXT WEEK AND ONCE ADOPTION APPROVED CAN PROVIDE TRANSPORTATION WITH DONATION TOWARD GAS. (Less)

Rat Terrier    Age: Young Adult

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

    This sweet boy was attacked by a large dog. It took over 6 months to heal. While his wounds have healed, he still has scars with no hair. He subsequently has lost his left eye as well. It has healed well and he is much happier and has no pain without it. Sweet boy, would do fine with another GENTLE dog as one that jumps on him and is rough would hurt his scars. He is 5 years old, neutered, weighs approx. 15 lbs. Crate trained, doggy door trained, would need some guidance to a new potty/household routine. Kids would be best that are older to understand his physical situation. He would need a harness rather than a collar for walks. ...

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