Rescue Me ID: 14-04-23-00304Einstein (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Senior

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

    Einstein was surrendered to Russell Rescue, Inc by his human mother of ten years when she could no longer care for him like he deserved. She made the choice to seek out a rescue that would find him the best home, even sending a letter with him. Einstein is diabetic, and is on a diet that has allowed us to reduce his insulin needs, and is in great health. He has lost weight, gained energy, and has a little attitude! 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)

     Hi there! My name is Rico Suave and I must say the girls really love me! I am 3 years old and have a lot of personality in a small body. I am very well balanced, not a yapper, do great with all people, kids, cats, and other dogs of all sizes. I'm a laid back little guy who would make a wonderful lap buddy. I am housetrained and do well in the house. I also walk well on a leash and am a great little car rider. I am the perfect companion.

Animal ID: 1375Lainey (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Young Adult

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

    I am Lainey. My foster mom refers to me as the mighty mouse because I weigh only 3.8 lbs. but I run with the big dogs. I can be feisty and quite the Napoleon when I want to guard the territory, but sweet and shy in a crowd (especially if a lot of people are looking at me). I am estimated to be 1 year old. I am friendly to all humans and I get along with both of the children I live with, ages 5 and 11. They know how to treat me properly and don't treat me like a toy just because of my little size. That is good because I am so easy-going that I don't voice my opinion too well. I like to jump like a pogo stick when I am experiencing sheer ... (Read More)happiness, like when you greet me or when it's time to eat or get treats. I walk great on a leash and I love a warm coat on a chilly day. I love to be curled up like a rollie-pollie in your lap when I want to take a nap, but otherwise I prefer to have my feet on the ground rather than being carried around. I love to go on long hikes with my foster mom and even with my tiny size I am able to be a billy goat on some of the cool trails where she takes me. I need a home that will continue to socialize me with people so I can work on my confidence around new surroundings. I like to sleep in on mornings and sunbathe in the yard. I would do well in a home with another dog, but I would be okay with or without a canine friend because I really prefer my human companion over anything! My foster mom would be glad to answer any questions you have about me.

    Gidget - ID# 50251 - Female - Feist-Rat Terrier Mix Breed - 2 to 3 years - Small - Tri Color OS 3/6 Hi, my name is Gidget. I am a 2 to 3 year old, female Feist - Rat Terrier Mix Breed. My owner became very ill and now I am a homeless girl. I'm used to a very quiet home and I miss the companionship I had. I'm hoping someone will find it in their heart to adopt a sweet girl like me. I come across timid and shy but with a little patience and time, I know we could be best friends forever. For more information on Gidget, please call her foster parents at 910-489-2468.

Rat Terrier    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Bella is a great companion for an adult male, female or couple. She bonds and is sweet and loving with those closest to her and is selective with her affection to others. She loves cuddling and is a great lap dog. She loves to run in open spaces and is a lot of fun to watch! She is leash-trained for walks, house broken and crate trained. We find we are having to leave her at home or kenneled more than we feel is fair to her and would love to find a home with a family who is more available for her.

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.
