Animal ID: 1600Gibbs (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Gibbs, just 15 lbs. and 2 to 3 years old, is the whole package. There is just about nothing missing in the list of awesome words to describe him. Gibbs is very social with people and other dogs. He loves to snuggle with his humans and get belly rubs. He gets along well with all the other dogs in his foster home and adores playing ball with them outside. Gibbs is also wonderfully well mannered. He came into his foster home already house trained and has been so good, in fact, that he's had no accidents since he arrived. He also walks well on leash and does well in his crate. He stays in his crate while his foster mom is out for a few hours ... (Read More)during the day. He will also sleep in his crate at night, but given his choice, he would prefer to sleep with his humans. Being such a polite fellow, though, crate or bed--either way is good with him. So why do we say 'just about nothing is missing' in the words to describe Gibbs? Well, there is one word we're still waiting to use, and that word is 'adopted.' That's where you come in. You will love the antics of this loving little guy. ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Gibbs, 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.

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.
