Rescue Me ID: 14-12-27-00270Oscar (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Low Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Oscar is a miniature Rat Terrier that we rescued from Animal Control about a year ago. He had been a stray and was neutered aat Animal Control. He is an adorable, quiet, snuggly dog who likes to sleep on your lap,go for walks, and go for rides in the car. He weighs about 15 pounds. He is sometimes ok with our other 30 pound dog but tends to be dominant and they are no longer getting along well so we need to find him another home. He is ok with my kids but would be better with adults as an only dog I think. He has had private dog training at home and will usually come, sit, down, stay and place. He is very well crate trained. He usually ... (Read More)comes to the whistle. He rarely barks. That may be part of the reason he has the occasional pee accident in the house, because he doesn't let us know when he has to go out, like our other dog. When we tried working with a bell on the door he was pretty quick to learn though and if you worked with him I think he would improve a lot. He probably has a few issues from being a stray too but is a nice little dog that we have loved and would love to see him in the right home. He is up to date on all vaccines and is chipped. (Less)

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)

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)

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious 

    BB is one of the sweetest girls you ever wanted to meet. He number one skill is sleeping close to you at night. Second would be sitting in your lap while you pet her. Unfortunately, as our family has grown so has the pet population. BB has not adapted well at all. We've even met with a behaviorist. BB needs to be an only dog. It was amazing to watch her shine with the trainer. The ideal placement would be retired or divorced person looking for a buddy.BB does not have a mean bone in her body. I cheked questionable with kids was because in her nervousness, i cant take anything for granted.
