Rescue Me ID: 16-12-02-00384Hobbs (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 

    Hi there, I'm Hobbs, and if you're looking for the cutest little munchkin with short legs and soft hair, well you found me! The shelter thinks I'm a Rat Terrier- Daschund mix. I'm a young male at about 1 year old, and I probably weigh in around 18lbs. I was brought in to this rural shelter as a stray with my buddy Calvin. We're kenneled together here and we get along so well, the shelter thinks I'd probably do good in a home with another dog. I'm just the tiniest bit shy at first, probably because it's kinda scary in here, but as soon as you show me attention, I open right up and want to be your friend. I'd make an adorable chunky little lap ... (Read More)dog and sure do love to be pet and loved on. I'm running out of time here, so if you're interested in making me part of your family, please call or come down to McDowell County Animal Shelter 3751 NC 226 S, Marion NC (828) 652-6643. If you'd like to foster to save my life please email Jamie.Stillwachs@bwar.org. I hope to meet you soon! (Less)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

    This dog was running loose down a busy road out front of our home. While attempting to prevent her from being hit by a car, she jumped into our truck. We have fliers out & have multiple online 'found dog' ads out. * We have no children, so we don't know her child compatibility. She may be just fine. She has been a house dog and is house-trained & VERY attached to her caretakers.

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Finley, who we believe is a Chihuahua/Rat Terrier mix, ended up in a rural county shelter where he was absolutely terrified. Thankfully they called and asked if we could come to the shelter and evaluate Finley to see if we could take him into our adoption program. Although he was very scared we decided that we would take him in. As soon as he got in the car of our employee his personality completely changed. He sat in her lap all the way to the clinic and even gave her the tiniest bit of a kiss. Finley walks very nicely on a leash and loves treats. He would probably do best in a fairly quiet home. If you are interested in this pup, ... (Read More)please visit our website at www.tysorvet.net and click on the adoption tab where you will find a link to our adoption application.

Rat Terrier    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Needs to be Neutered 

    Buddy is 7 months old. Sweet as can be loves to be the center of attention. He is having bad anxiety attacks every day as I leave for work. I just got Buddy about 3 weeks ago. The previous owner kept him in a small cat carrier and was not at all truthful with us concerning his ability to be alone. Buddy is fine as long as he is with someone. He enjoys so much to give affection to his human family. It is so sad this was done to us. I have an 8 year old son who also is heartbroken.

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered 

    Hobie was abandoned in our neighborhood a few years ago. He has been living with my neighbors, who have 2 teenage children and another small, male dog. Hobie loves attention! They aren't home much, and he has been digging out of their fenced yard. They have tried to keep him in, but their schedules don't allow them the time to devote to him that he deserves. Hobie would be great with an older person who could walk him and give him lots of lap time! They plan to take him to the animal shelter in the next few days, so he needs a new home today!

    Shelly's guardian had to go into a nursing home so Shelly set about looking for a new place and family. She is about 4 years old and was very chubby, however, she looks much better and only has a couple of pounds to go before she is at her ideal weight. Being under careful supervision and good food has made a lot of difference in her energy level, health and ability to get around. Shelly never wants to be called 'Dumpy' again. Shelly has a great personality and has been very adaptable to her foster's living situation with 5 dogs and a cat. She loves to go for walks and has developed a taste for playing with the other dogs. Shelly loves ... (Read More)to cuddle! and she loves people! Shelly also loves to be outside and likes to ride in the car. She will make someone a wonderful little companion!

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

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. I adore this dog, but she is bad with cats, and she has fear/aggression issues with people she doesn't know and I do not have the time to train her properly. 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.
