Rescue Me ID: 14-09-22-00211Sonny (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious 

    Sonny was adopted from a nearby shelter. He is 6 years old (as of August 6th), neutered, micro-chipped, and has all necessary vaccinations, including rabies. He is also up to date on flea, tick, and heartworm protection. Sonny is very sweet, but unfortunately, does not like other dogs. He does not chew furniture or his bed. He chews toys without destroying them. He is not afraid of powerchairs, or anything much, really. He eats about 1 cup of food per day and also enjoys broccoli, watermelon, and bananas. We are currently working with Sonny on staying in his crate when we need to leave, but he very much enjoys snuggling in his blanket at ... (Read More)the foot of my bed at night. He is also used to laying on the couch (sorry). He does travel well in his crate. Sonny gets anxious when people leave, but that may be due to him not having a permanent family. We like Sonny a lot, I feel awful even posting this. We have recently become displaced from our home and have had to move in with my in-laws. We must keep Sonny in his crate to avoid issues with their dogs and he has become very unhappy and anxious. If someone were able to work with him and enjoy his energy AND give him a warm home filled with love, he would be much happier. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 13-11-06-00252Peanut (female)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    PEANUT was shy when she was first rescued but now she has come out of her SHELL. Peanut is a tri-color mixed breed female who is as cute as can be. She appears to be chihuahua or maybe part rat terrier. She is 2 years old and weighs 15 pounds. She is HW negative, spayed and up to date on all vaccinations. Peanut came to us with a chemical burn covering the entire length of her back. Her burn was treated and was believed to be caused by a reaction to Advantage Multi used by her previous owner. We discontinued use of this product and she does fine with the Frontline product (along with Heartgard). Her wounds have healed nicely and her ... (Read More)hair has grown back . Peanut has an adorable underbite and her precious bottom teeth stick out all of the time. Peanut has come a long way and now is very happy to be around people and dogs. She loves attention from her humans and wants to be by their side 24/7. She does crate well when told to but she must get a treat. She does fine with other dogs but does not need a canine playmate to be happy. She just wants to sit in someone's lap, a lot. Peanut has NEVER shown aggression towards another dog or a person and is very easy going. She still has some trust issues and when you pick her up or hold her in your lap, it takes her a minute or two to loosen up and relax. Peanut does well in the house and has yet to have an accident inside. If you live in another state, don't let that stand in your way. We will work to transport Peanut 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 her vetting and spaying. (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.
