Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Terrier Mix ~Senior ~ Female ~ Medium~ located at the Carroll County Humane Society McKenzie, TN (West TN) Sandy is a super spry maybe senior pooch who showed up at someone's house as a stray. They held on to her until we could get room and then surrendered her in tears. We guessed Sandy at about 4 years old when she first came in but she may be older so we will just say between 4-6 years old. She is monster calm and sweet and likes to play around in the exercise kennels but then also likes to come inside for a well deserved nap. We were shocked that she was heartworm negative, but negative she is and we were very happy. She has great leash ... (Read More)manners, good social skills, and is good with other dogs. She is a 'lay at your feet' kind of pooch but not a deadhead. This gal has plenty of spunk left in her but with the reward of a good cuddle buddy after playtime. Sandy is right at 30 pounds and will make an ideal pet for a lucky family! (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Rat Terrier in Tennessee

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.
