Rescue Me ID: 16-11-20-00408Duncan (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi there. My name is Duncan. I'm about 1 year old and I weigh about 25 lbs. I was brought in to the pound as a stray. I am a feral dog, which means I have had little to no human socialization at all. I am completely unsocialized other than the human contact that I have had since arriving here at the pound. I mostly just try to avoid humans as much as I can. I still find them quite terrifying, though I am doing much better than I was when I first arrived. I do like other dogs really well and I do great with them. Being around the other dogs here has really helped me start coming around. When I am around the other dogs, I will actually get up ... (Read More)and wander around and explore things. I am getting more and more curious about people but I haven't started trying to come up to them yet and I don't really care for being touched yet. So far, I haven't attempted to bite, even though I am terrified. I mostly just try to hide to avoid you. I need a home or a rescue group with knowledge and experience in helping feral/unsocialized dogs. Needless to say, once I learn to accept and like human contact, I will require a good but of training, socialization and housebreaking. Please help me if you're able. Our adoption fee is $120.00. The adoption fee must be paid in CASH. We are unable to accept personal checks or credit/debit cards for adoption fees. ALL dogs/puppies adopted from our shelter will receive their parvo distemper vaccine, bordetella vaccine, rabies vaccine (if aged at 12 weeks or older), be dewormed with a 3 day course of panacur dewormer, be microchipped, receive their current Ohio dog license and will be spayed or neutered. ALL DOGS/PUPPIES WILL BE SPAYED OR NEUTERED unless a health issue prohibits the surgery from being performed. Not all dogs posted for adoption are spayed/ neutered yet. If you're driving a long distance to adopt, please verify that the vetting process has been completed and dog you're interested in adopting is still available for adoption. The above mentioned vetting is all included in your adoption fee. The adoption fee and what is included in the adoption fee is NON-NEGOTIABLE. Adoptions MUST be done at the pound and in person as there is paperwork to fill out and an adoption contract that must be signed by the adopter. This means you must be willing to travel to our shelter to adopt. IF the dog you're interested in adopting has medical conditions or injuries which require medical treatment, we ask that you help with the medical bills so we can continue to help the dogs coming in who need additional vet care. We are a county run shelter, therefore we cannot control our intake or the health or behavior of the dogs that come in to our shelter. Although we try our hardest to place all of our adoptable dogs, there are certain circumstances in which any dog in our care could be euthanized at any time and without further notice (IE: sudden untreatable medical condition or injury, temperament or behavioral problems which may not be apparent when the dog first arrives, lack or space, etc.), therefore all dogs at our shelter should be considered urgent. The adoption of a more highly adoptable dog will mean more time for the less adoptable dog in the kennel next to him! Shelter hours are: Monday-Friday: 8 am- 4 pm Saturday: 9 am- 12 pm. The pound is CLOSED to the public on Sunday. There is nobody in the office on Saturday and Sunday, so therefore we are unable to answer or return phone calls over the weekend. Can't adopt a dog? We would love to have more volunteers who are able to spend time with our dogs! The dogs LOVE going for walks and the socialization and exercise helps make the dogs more adoptable.

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.
