Rescue Me ID: 14-12-10-00526Possum (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    TEDDY ROOSEVELT TERRIER, B-Type Rat Terrier. This dog appears shy-typical for the breed, they don't like to be reached for overhanded,therefore they tend to duck down. Once she warms up she is playful. She needs an adult family or with older children as too much movement makes her skittish. She has an overbite: her top teeth are noticeably over her bottom teeth-some may correct when her adult canines come in. Proof of proper vet care/reference would be needed. Her puppy canines will be removed to provide more room for adult teeth. A new family should be prepared to seek care to confirm bottom canines will not interfere with her mouth. ... (Read More)She eats and plays fine. Pics will be posted or can be sent via cell. Sweet girl, looking for someone to love her with her 'buck' teeth. Delivery options available (fee) (Less)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed 

    Sweet,cuddly,loyal,housebroken, kennel trained, knows all basic commands, good with other dogs, cats, small animals like ferrets and chickens. She's a lovely dog. The only reason I'm trying to find her a new home is that she's not happy having my young child around and I'm expecting again. She gets along okay with kids but she'd best best in a him where the youngest was not under 10. I think shee perfect for a active single person. As long as you took her running or something once a day she'd be fine at home while you're at work. She be great for agility or lure coursing, taking along for bike rides or hiking. She just wants to have a ... (Read More)purpose. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-10-20-00217Oliver (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Senior

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

    Oliver is a very affectionate, QUIET (almost never barks) and loyal 13-year-old Rat Terrier. Oliver is completely tolerant of everyone: small children, all animals, etc. In fact, Oliver is happiest with other animals around. His current owners adopted him from a shelter in 2010. Now, after giving Oliver a good home for 4 years, they have started new jobs that leave Oliver home alone 12+ hours a day, which is not only unfair to Oliver but require daily dog walkers, etc. that are very expensive. Oliver does require some extra care for his allergies such as grain-free, limited ingredient food, a pill taken daily available from petmeds.com ... (Read More)for about $45 per month supply. His allergies also require a weekly bath to control scratching and odor that are typical of dogs with allergies. He also might be going a little hard of hearing. Oliver is a very sweet dog. He loves, walks, laps and every other chance he gets to be as close to his people as possible. The presence of another dog, cat or other pet would also help his transition to a new home. He's great for any size home. (Less)

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

    Lap dog anyone??? I'm a little sweetheart who has been patiently waiting for my FOREVER HOME. My name is Sasha, and I'm a 5 year old chi/rat terrier mix who weighs 23lbs. PLEASE SHARE ME!!!! My foster mom thinks I'm the most wonderful girl ever!! I'm fully housebroken, and when my foster mom goes out, I have free roam of the house. Even when left alone, I am never a naughty girl! I'm great with other dogs of all sizes, as well as cats. I'll play with anyone who is willing, but I try my best to be respectful of older felines who just prefer to cuddle'|In fact, when I was in SC, I slept cuddled up next to my foster's cat every night! I'm ... (Read More)also great with children! I'd have to say that I'm really the perfect mix of playful and cuddly. Life is great as a lap dog, but I'm still extremely friendly and always happy to play. I'll probably make you laugh if you watch me playing on my own because I'm very silly with my toys! I'd say that lounging in the sun, playing with friends, snuggling in a lap. and going on trips are some of my favorite activities. I'm truly going to be the perfect addition to any family. I'm spayed, microchipped, and up to date on all vaccines. (Less)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Destiny is a Decker Rat Terrier, weighing about 27 lbs. Black tri tuxedo pattern. She would be best suited for a single woman or two woman household and a quiet setting would be best. She does like a pal to play with, but non aggressive playmate. Destiny is very aloof-she never barks. When nervous she lifts her front leg and curls it. She is crate trained. She always acts skittish when coming through the doorway into the house, almost as though she is afraid of the door so she runs through it. Sweet dog but is happy being a dog and not a huggy dog. Loves to play and run in the yard once she is comfortable. She needs a fenced yard. ... (Read More)She will walk on lead and rides well in the car. She needs a patient, understanding forever family. Pics are available. Delivery options are available (fee). Other recent pics available via I phone. (Less)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

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

    Sweet, loving dog. She will probably take a little time to adjust to new home. Crate trained, doggy door trained. Good with kids but hasn't been around very young. Would recommend a retired couple for her, or a woman-another small quiet older dog would be fine. White tri-calico pattern. Loses color as dog matures. Nikki had a black/tan face when young. Looking for her forever retirement home with perhaps another dog friend, she gets along with Khandi if someone were looking for two. Loves to sleep with a human, as Khandi does too. Delivery options available (fee).
