Rescue Me ID: 14-10-07-00116Baxter (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    This is Baxter. He is an 18 month old rat terrier mix who is a ball of energy and very friendly, smart, and sweet. I rescued him back in November from Mecklenburg County Animal Control, where he had spent most of his life. Unfortunately, due to illness and my job, I've been unable to take care of him properly. Currently, he's kept in his crate while I'm at work. In October I will be travelling for work and won't be at home for three weeks out of the month. I'd like to find a person/family who has time to spend with him, playing with him and taking him on long walks; someone with a backyard where he could run around in would be ideal. He ... (Read More)loves people and other animals so I think he would fit right in with a family with another dog. Again, Baxter is HIGH energy so I want a family that will be able to keep up with him. Baxter weighs 20 lbs and is up to date on all of his shots, has been fixed, and is microchipped. He comes with his crate and all of his accessories/toys. (Less)

Einstein is fine in his crate, but prefers the bed, snoring, upside down, under the covers. He also has a shoe fetish, enjoys the yard, his canine siblings, and treats. Einstein would eat all day if it wouldn't wreck his ... (Read More)diet. What is best for Einstein is routine. Otherwise, his diabetes is under control and can be managed easily! Won't you consider giving this spunky little man a forever home, where he can run, play, and be loved! (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.
