 Incontinent 

    [Read About Natural Incontinence Care] Bayleigh our special needs lady was to precious not to take into foster care. Bayleigh was the dog everyone had given up on. At 20 pounds, and approximately 6-8 years old, this Purebred Rat Terrier is Blind. She was abandoned in the street. A wonderfully kind woman found her but could not keep her. Bayleigh is very gentle and very sweet. She really likes being close to you and cuddling. Just being touched and stroked means so much to her. Bayleigh is looking for just the right tender hearted person who feels that a special needs dog deserves the best care. Because she is Blind, a quiet, peaceful home, ... (Read More)as an only pet, would be a blessing to her. Bayleigh is walked, on leash three times a day with her foster sister. She always, eliminates outside but does have accidents at home. She eats twice a day and has been taught to go to her bed ('Place'), 'Sit', and 'Come Bayleigh', so far. She can find the water bucket on her own then gets back to her bed. This darling lady loves treats and will Sit for them. With Bayleigh's physical concerns, if we cannot find her a Special Needs home of her own, she will spend the rest of her life (long or short) with us. We pray she can experience, what it feels like to be a beloved only pet in a peaceful home setting with lots of cuddling. Please contact rcsrescue@gmail.com for an adoption application. Half of Bayleigh's adoption fee has been donated so it is reduced to $100. (Less)

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!

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
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.
