Rat Terrier    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    This beautiful boy is a so playful and such a lovable boy. He will fetch a ball all day long. Loves children and most other dogs. He has not shown any dog aggression at all. cCats are a different story. Not to favorable though he has done no harm other then to chase them it would be better to say he is not cat friendly. He was a rescue that a family got, that probably should have done some thinking before they took him home, because he loves to play and run. It burns his energy like it is suppose to. They live in an apartment complex, mom works all day and the boys are in school. The kids get home first and they are suppose to take care of ... (Read More)the dog. It was more of a responsibility then the two boys were willing to commit to. There were a couple of incidences where they let the dog out with no leash. The cat owners freaked out and complained. Mom was force to find another home. Desperate she turned to rescue for help. Pet ResQ stepped up and showed up as agreed, where two others said they would but did not. So happy we got him because he is so cool and so much fun. I even got a hand ball flinger to use since he will chase one as long as you want to throw one. He is young and really a perfect dog for children. He is house broke and kennel trained. He is a good boy and such a love. He loves to sit and lay with you too. Thank you for considering adopting. Please call or write for more information if you are serious. Be safe and Thank you. (Less)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Abused/Neglected, Fearful/Anxious 

    Abandoned on property on March 2016, suspicious of men. Very energetic once trust is established. She is very sweet with me and my 2 toddlers. She plays with my other 2 larger dogs but she gets aggressive with them so i think she'd do better in a home without other pets. Currently kept outside and roams fields hunting but comes back home to sleep in heated dog house. Had a litter of pups in October. Please contact me for more info.

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.
