Rescue Me ID: 15-07-27-00584Charlie (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Charlie showed up at our door and we were unable to find his owners. He is such a sweet dog who loves to snuggle any chance he gets. He is great with kids and adults. We have two large dogs and he is fine with them but would prefer to be an only dog. He has separation anxiety so doesn't like to be left alone for long hours. We would love to find a forever home for Charlie with someone who can devote more time to him. He is happiest when he is with someone. He loves walks and riding in the car and burrowing under a good blanket. Charlie will be a great companion for someone who is looking for a devoted dog friend.

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Average Temperament

    We are moving soon and desperately need a home for Izzy. We have had her since 2008, and never thought we'd ever have to give her up. She is very sweet, likes short, slow walks which mainly involve sniffing and peeing. She has been living with several dogs of both sexes (she loves the boy dogs)and two cats for several years now. She is on a low dose of hypothyroid medication and has arthritis, but is otherwise healthy.

Animal ID: D150205Jackie (female)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Jackie is a little sweetheart! With her scruffy little face and easy going way, she is so easy to love! She's not demanding and goes with the flow. She's good with other dogs and kids and is in a foster home with both, but she doesn't really play with the other dogs and if the kids get loud and rowdy, Jackie goes to her bed. She's 5 years old and weighs about 11 pounds. Jackie has been treated for heart worms and will be ready for her new home on August 13. Now, she prances happily about and adores treats. This little girl is housetrained and loves to sleep in her little bed at night. Jackie has dry eyes and needs eyedrops about 2 times per ... (Read More)day. If you are looking for a sweet, calm little companion who will love you back, Jackie is move-in ready! We are guessing at Jackie's breed mix - she has short fur on most of her body with long flowing fur on her head. (Less)

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