Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Aggressive 

    We need to find a new home for our adorable, affectionate, funny, smart, lively 2 1/2 yo rat terrier/schipperke (we think) mix.

She is very smart and highly treat motivated, so I am certain that someone who has the time to work with her could socialize her past this. She really needs a job - I think she would be a fabulous agility dog. (And she would be happy to get rid of any rats you have.) Please see the video for a demo of her agility, cuteness and energy. She loves my 10 year old, ... (Read More)but plays a bit too rough for smaller children. Also she is crate and house trained, and is a pleasure to walk with. Vet reference required. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Rat Terrier in North Carolina
    Rat Terrier Dogs can make good pets in North Carolina 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.
