Animal ID: 1788Trixie (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Trixie, a lively little lady, who is 4 to 5 years old and weighs about 13 lbs. Trixie lives for her special humans! She gets so excited when she sees her person that she jumps up and down, and if snuggling were an Olympic sport, she would have a gold medal. Trixie gets along well with other dogs, but cats aren't in her 'circle of trust.' She will bark and growl at them. Similarly she is skittish around new people and may bite out of fear if they are too forward with her. But with the people she knows, she's one happy-go-lucky Rat Terrier, who loves to be loved. Trixie is proud to say that she is house trained but may have an occasional ... (Read More)accident if you don't take her out on a regular schedule. She has allergies to fleas, so she's hoping you'll be diligent in using flea preventative. More than anything, Trixie is hoping that you'll be that very special person to make her jump for joy. ======================================================================================== If you are interested in adopting Trixie, please go to New Rattitude's website at, where there is detailed information and a link to our adoption application. =========================================== (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. ...
