Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 

    ALEXIS is an adorable tri-color Chi/Rat Terrier mix female who was found on E. Todd St in Union City, TN, on 1/14/15. She was not claimed by an owner so she is now seeking a new forever home. In the meantime, she is in a foster home. Her foster reports that Alexis is friendly and a little on the submissive side although she will correct the big dog in the house if he plays too rough. She likes to snuggle in blankets or under the covers at the end of the bed. She will gladly roll over for a belly rub. She can be very active and playful in spurts but likes to nap in a lap for the most part. She will sleep through the night in her crate ... (Read More)and has done well with house training. She walks well on a leash. She is estimated to be 5 years old and weighs 10 to 11 pounds. She has been vaccinated and she tested negative for heartworm. She will soon be spayed. If you live in another state, don't let that stand in your way. We will work to transport Alexis if it means she will have a good forever home. If you are another rescue group, we will waive the adoption fee but you can make a donation toward vetting at your discretion. The adoption fee will help our 501(c)(3) non-profit rescue to cover the cost of the veterinary care she has received. (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.
