Animal ID: D-15-080Sundae Rose (female)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Sundae is a gorgeous girl with unique brown, black, and white markings - she's got the coloring of an ice cream sundae with fudge and caramel sauce! She's got a sweet face with black freckles and a black mark on one cheek that looks like a paint brush stroke. Sundae's a skinny girl with long, lanky legs that give her a heckuva vertical leap! Her exuberance will make you laugh. She is a happy, smaller dog with 36 lbs of personality, energy, intelligence, curiosity, playfulness, and affection. She is excellent in the home. Housebroken, will ask to go out when needed, does not counter-surf, get in the trash, or chew on anything other than her ... (Read More)toys. She likes a comfortable warm bed and if one is not provided she will nap on furniture and beds. She has adapted like a pro to her current foster home. Sundae Rose is an outdoor kind of girl. Her new family will have to commit to daily exercise for her to remain happy. She needs a large fenced yard to run in and would love to play with kids and a dog friend. Definitely NOT a crate-able during the day type dog. If you want a pal, Sundae is it. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-05-02-00592Deacon (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Within days of being fostered, Deacon picked up a handful of basic commands that help him be a great housemate. Worried about dirty paws in the house but love dogs? Deacon has learned to 'sit' and give you his 'left paw' then 'right paw' to wipe off before heading back to his chosen snuggle spot. Deacon can even cover himself up with his blanket at night! Deacon does great on a leash, has never had an accident at his foster home, and knows how to respond to 'go potty' when outside. He gets along great with the other pup in our household and seems to look up to her for direction, so we think he'd make a good side-kick for another canine ... (Read More)pal. Deacon doesn't mind cats and although he is curious about them he seems to respect that they are generally larger than he is! We suspect there were people in Deacon's past who weren't kind to him but he really enjoys being treated like a loved member and will do well with someone willing to be patient with him as he adjusts to living in a new home. Deacon can have an attitude at times when he doesn't want to do something, but comes around and cooperates. He will need a gentle hand and someone with patience for our happy and loving little guy! He needs a home with no children, due to his sometimes nervous nature. If you would like to adopt Deacon, please submit an application on our website at http://www.hopeanimals.org/#!adoption-application/c1trs (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-04-07-00440Luigi (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    I call him my 'Crotchety Old Man' but he's a little love bug. He's just so scared of everything. More loyal than most of us deserve - he waited for his people to come back for him for 5 days after they dropped him off. For someone with other dogs to adopt him, it'll take a strong pack leader. I've got him to the point that he interacts with 12 others in the same home but he's not happy about it.

Rescue Me ID: 16-03-04-00098Luigi / Lou (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected,
 Fearful/Anxious 

    This saggy skinned, little old man was dumped roadside. He sat in the same place waiting on his owner to come back for 5 days. X-rays on intake showed he'd been eating rocks. He's scared out of his mind & has a Napoleon complex so will charge at a perceived threat. (all 15 lbs of him - scary! LOL) I can tell he's never been held or loved. But he's very receptive & lovable. We got him neutered, UTD on vacs, dental (with one extraction), chest x-rays, wormed (HW-Neg!)and a microchip. PLEASE give him a chance at a happy ending. I can tell that his whole life has sucked. He deserves a good year or two before it's over.

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.
