    I'm a sweet and cuddly little girl with a super cute smile! My name is Kiki, and I'm a 6 month old,14 lb, rat terrier mix. I'm being fostered in NY, and I'm looking for a NY or the tri-state area FOSTER OR FOREVER HOME!!! All I want is to cuddle and be loved! I'm a happy and friendly little girl who gets along with everyone, including other dogs and kids. I'm happy running around with a few friends or snuggling right up on your lap! I need a fenced (not electric) yard to keep me safe. I'd also love a home where someone is around during the day so I'm not spending my day in a crate. I'm spayed, microchipped, and up to date on vaccinations. ... (Read More)My adoption fee is $375. (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 

    Cuteness definitely comes in small packages! My name is Bennie, and I'm a 6 month old, 14 lb, rat terrier mix. I'm being fostered in NY, and I'm looking for a FOREVER HOME. I come from a litter of 3 pups, and we are all extremely sweet and loving! I'm not going to have any trouble fitting into pretty much any household - as long as they are willing to snuggle me. I get along well with other dogs, and so far I've been in the shelter with visiting kids (most older than 10) and I've done great. My foster mom says I love to cuddle, and I'm super affectionate and sweet. She says whoever adopts me is going to be super lucky! I'm neutered, ...

Rescue Me ID: 15-04-22-00295Riis (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Riis is a healthy female 3-year-old, 16-pound rat terrier. She loves the outdoors, going for walks, playing with other dogs at the dog park, but she also really loves snuggling and cuddling up in your lap. She is housebroken and a very fast learner. Sometimes she takes a moment to take to new people, but she warms up quickly. We adopted Riis almost two years ago. She had previously been returned to the shelter when we met her, for what we were told was destructive behavior. However, we haven't seen any evidence of destructive behavior since she's lived with us, aside from perhaps the occasional paper towel she gets a hold of. She's ... (Read More)otherwise been great with furniture, doors, etc. She actually still has the same bed from when we got her, washing it will do it in before she would do anything to it. Riis was our baby and we put a lot of time into training her and truly thought she had found her forever home with us. When I got pregnant she was my faithful companion throughout. She has been great with our new baby, however kids who are crawling or not so sure on their feet make her very nervous and grumpy. Same goes for kids on bikes, scooters and skateboards. Simply, we realize we are no longer the best home and family for her. We both work long hours out of the house (this was not the case when we first got her). Now that we are parents of a newborn, our attention is dedicated to our baby, leaving Riis with fewer of the long walks and playful interaction she needs. Riis has come a long way with training, and would be an eager, loving addition to the right family. Our goal is to find her a more ideal situation and forever home. She'd be best in a home with kids over the age of 6. While she loves other dogs, the bigger ones tend to like her the best. She has a fierce sounding playful growl that the little ones tend not to like so much. We would provide the adoptee with everything they'd need from leashes, to crate, car seat, wardrobe (she has a lot of sweaters), toys, etc, etc. She is microchipped and up to date on all vaccines.

Rescue Me ID: 15-03-21-00312Pru (female)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    There's just something about me! Who knows, could be the ears, but whatever it is, I'm very easy to love. My name is Pru, and I'm a 2 year old, 23lb female housebroken rat terrier mix. I'm being fostered on Long Island with my pug buddies, and I'm looking for a NY/Tri-state area FOREVER home! I'm definitely quite the little lady! Like any proper girl, I can be a little shy in new situations, but once you win my trust, I'll give you my heart. I love hanging around with my furry foster buddies, especially since we're pretty much the same size. I'd love a home either with another dog, or I'd be equally as happy to glow in the spotlight as an ... (Read More)only dog. (I'll be a little scared of aggressive dogs, so friendly friends only please!) Words to describe me include snuggly, loving, sweet, and 'cuddly lap warmer'. I think I'm really the perfect size - not so little that you will step on me but not so big that you can't carry me around if you'd like! I am spayed, microchipped, and vaccinated, and my adoption fee is $375. Adopters must have a fully fenced (not electric) yard. (Less)

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.
