Animal ID: 1505Mia (female)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    What a perfect addition Mia would make to just about any household! This 10.5-lb. Rat Terrier/Chihuahua mix is just 1 year old, and she is a lovable, snuggly little girl who gets along with everyone, including other dogs. She hasn't met cats yet, but she doesn't have a strong prey drive, so she might be just fine with them. Mia wants to please and is easily trained. She has learned 'sit,' walks well on a leash, and is house trained. She only barks when the other dogs in her foster home start barking, and although she has experienced the mischievous joy of table surfing, she is already learning that this is a 'no-no.' Throughout the day, Mia ... (Read More)has little spurts of energy, but then she is content to curl up with her blanket to nap. She stays in her crate when her foster mom is gone for a couple of hours, but at night, she loves to snuggle and sleep in the bed with her people. Mamma mia, doesn't she sound like the dog you've been looking for? ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Mia, please go to New Rattitude's website at http://www.NewRattitude.org/adopt.htm, where there is detailed information and a link to our adoption application.

    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.
