Rescue Me ID: 16-02-07-00668George (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    George is a Decker Rat Terrier approx 8 years old neutered and up to date. This boy has had a life that is story worthy and yet his ability to love is endless! He is good with small dogs and with cats (in fact he is kind of afraid of them!) he has lived with two young boys for 4 years. However he would do best with older kids so they understand he is not a huggy rough and tumble dog. He is a runner and a digger mostly he is all classic terrier! He walks well on mid weight chain leash, he pulls like crazy with a nylon leash, we discovered this after having him quite a while but a standard collar is fine. He is a happy go lucky guy at about ... (Read More)27lbs. If you have questions and or interest please contact Aaren at 330 495-0989 (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-02-07-00316Sweetie (female)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    I have a 3 year old female red-pitbull/terrier mix. She has been fixed and has all her shots (will provide shot record) she is micro-chipped and that can be changed to your name. She is very loving and enjoys taking walks, riding in car and just hanging out. She typically sleeps with one of my children at night, and we only use the crate when we are gone for long times. She is house broken and crate trained though. She doesn't like lots of loud noises, so she wouldn't be good around small children. She would be best for a couple or single person who wants a companion. I'm not sure how she would do with other dogs, as she doesn't chase ... (Read More)any on walks, but hasn't been around any very often either. I adopted her from the kennel and although have enjoyed her, I am finding that with my work schedule and my teenagers working more now, we are not home as often to give her the attention she needs. I am only asking $50 re-homing fee to basically help offset the new crate I just bought for her. I want her to go to a good home where she will be loved and appreciated. She is very gentle and sleeps a lot (lol). She is very protective and barks if there is loud noises or she sees people arguing (yelling). She will come with her shot records (including updated rabies she just got in January), collars, leash, food bowl, water bowl and crate. Serious inquiries only, please... (Less)

    Taco is a 4 year old, male, chi mix. He has been neutered, is current on shots, and tested negative for heartworms. We rescued Taco after he was surrendered to the local shelter after his owner was put into hospice. Taco is a sweet boy, and is ready for a new start and a family to grow old with.

However, we also do not hold dogs. They are ready to be adopted now. After a dog is adopted, we can then rescue another dog in need. Thank you for choosing a ... (Read More)rescue dog. (Less)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected 

    She is pitbull/rat terrier mix and she is around 2 years old. She is very sweet and super playful once she has warmed up. She has not had a very good life. She is fearful of men as she was mistreated by them, but with time an patience she is warming up to her foster dad just fine! She takes treats from him and follows him around now. She loves other dogs and she is very energetic but plays well on her own. Give her a ball and she is as happy as can be! She will probably need to warm up to whomever is considering to adopt her. Especially if a guy lives in the home, she will need patience but it's possible! She needs a home that is very ... (Read More)understanding of her past life of being mistreated.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Rat Terrier in Ohio
    Rat Terrier Dogs can make good pets in Ohio 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.
