We will not allow our dogs/puppies to be adopted out of the area without being spayed/neutered. We spay/neuter puppies at 4 months old. No need to look any further because I'm your guy. Hi there I'm Gambol! I like taking walks, people watching, snacking and hopefully cuddling next to you! I ...

Rescue Me ID: 17-10-05-00231Samantha (female)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Samantha was pulled from animal control just prior to the hurricane. We think she is a rat terrier mix around 3 years of age and weighing 31 pounds. She is mostly white with a very cool brown mask on her face and brown patches on her back leg and tail. The tip of her tongue is split. It was that way when we got her - it looks odd - but does not appear to bother her at all. Samantha is very sweet, loving and playful . She likes to chase squirrels and birds in the yard. She plays well with other dogs but we think that her interest in cats may not be a good one. Samantha is housetrained and crate trained, but she still needs to learn what she ... (Read More)can and cannot play with - So she cannot be left in the house unsupervised. We want Samantha to be an indoor dog and a loved member of the family. She also needs a secure fenced yard to run and play. Samantha is spayed, fully vaccinated, and microchipped. She is positive with a medium load of heartworms that is being treated with the proven 'slow kill' treatment. She is currently on her first round of treatment and the medicine for her second round will be provided. Samantha has a $100.00 adoption fee.

See when I was found by some nice ladies, I was so sick and had such bad skin issues, I looked ... (Read More)like a dinosaur. I could barely even move! Mama didn't think I'd make it through the first night... But I did!! And after a few weeks, I'm acting like a real puppy! I used to cry and try to run away when mama would come near me, now I LOVE MY MOMMA!!! I get sad when I'm not with her, and most nights she lets me sleep in bed next to her. I play super well with my big foster sister, I'm very submissive with her. I can rough and tumble with my smaller foster siblings too. I've also got this potty training thing down! I haven't had an accident in weeks! I've still got some recovering to do, but mama says it's a miracle I'm alive. And soon, I'm going to have a beautiful brown coat. Mama is not sure what mix I am yet, so she'll update as I continue to grow!

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    This is a very sweet smart dog I found roaming my neighborhood three days ago. I was able to contact the dog's owner through the humane society and she said, 'the dog is not a good fit for my family, could you please re-home him.' I thought I had a friend who wanted him, but she decided against another dog. So far this dog has been very good with my cats, my large doberman, my husband and three of his friends. The dog is trained to a leash and crate trained. I have only let him off leash behind high walls outside. It is my impression he would jump over low walls. He needs a fully fenced yard and I think would prefer to be one person's only ... (Read More)dog. He has nipped at my doberman a few times and told him no, that is not okay with me, I have scolded him and crated him when he has done that. He is very possessive of me and he hardly knows me!! I am female. I think he would be best with a female, stay at home person. Other than that he is a doll, he has let me bathe him, pick him up, has jumped in the truck, gone to the vet and been sweet the whole time. He is extremely smart and a happy little dog. If he could he would sleep in someone's lap all day. I do not know how this dog is with children as I don't have any, but he is not bothered by cats. I took him to the barn in a kennel and he woofed at the horses, but settled down. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me. He is heart worm negative and is up to date on his shots. He is neutered. (Less)

    Dolce is going to be 14 years old in December and he's been with me since he was 6 weeks old. He still has the energy of a young dog and has plenty of years left in him. I'm sad to post this but I just had a baby (8months) and Dolce hasn't adjusted quit well. Dolce has been the center of my attention since he was a puppy but I don't have the time anymore. He loves to cuddle under blankets or play catch in doors. He aims to please. He needs a home where there are no kids and he can have more attention. Please contact me if you would like more details.

Health: Needs to be Neutered, Needs Vaccinations 

    He was a stray, I've had him about 2 years. My husband just passed. I need to find PeeWee and a couple of others a home because I have multiple dogs. I'm home very little, financially strained and struggling with some health issues. I have another dog that is part pit, that attacked PeeWee, I'm confused because they have played together and even slept together. I'm keeping them separated and PeeWee seems depressed, I'm afraid to put him with the other dogs now, he tries to dominate them and seems jealous, I'm assuming that is why he was attacked. I took him to the emergency vet because I didn't know if the injuries were life threating. He ... (Read More)seems to be healing well (Less)

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi friends! My name is Poboy and I'm one of the newest K-9 Angels! These nice ladies took me home so I could ride out the hurricane in a warm bed. My foster mom says I'm the most loving dog she's ever met! I don't bark ever, I'm fully potty trained, and I don't pull on the leash. And I promise, I won't chew anything I'm not supposed to. My foster mom has never even put me in a crate because I'm such a good boy! I'm not super playful or interested in toys but I just don't think I'm used to them yet. I hate being left alone though. I'll follow you allllll around the house and ask for pets cause being pet is my favorite. I'd be the perfect ... (Read More)companion to anyone! Just ask me, my kisses will tell you! Poboy is 1 year old Chihuahua-Rat Terrier Mix and weighs about 8 pounds. He would be a great companion to an older person, a family with young kids, or a single person with other dogs.

Rescue Me ID: 17-08-27-00096Lewis (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Lewis is a 3 year old weighing 16 pound Rat Terrier mix that has been with us for 1 year. He was brought to PPR by a foster that wanted help in getting Lewis vaccinated, microchipped and neutered. He was 11 pounds and obviously not in great shape. After being neutered, Lewis could not wake up easily and he was uncoordinated in all his movements. The foster surrendered his to our group to help him get better. We immediately took him to the vet and after many tests, he was diagnosed with a liver disease. We changed his diet and put him on medication and eventually, Lewis started to get better. He gained weight and his energy level began ... (Read More)to improve. We have kept him on the diet and two inexpensive medications and he remains in good health. He is now a very healthy, active and fun loving dog. He runs and plays with all the dogs in the group for hours on end. When not playing, he will be outside in the sun, catching rays or on the backyard bench sleeping. He loves being the rabbit as the other dogs chase him around the backyard. He will even play fetch. He is very housebroken and is kennel trained (loves his kennel). He would be a good dog for older children and would definitely benefit from having a another dog around. Lewis is up to date on all vaccinations, heartworm negative, neutered and microchipped. He will need a special diet and a couple of medications for the rest of his life. (Less)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Little Miss is between 7-9 month old spayed female. Per the veterinarian and we think she might be a rat terrier mix. She is just about done growing so will stay small. She has had her first set of vaccinations and does need her boosters. Little Miss was found under a shed nearly dead. She had a severe case of non contagious mange and was bald. As you can see from the pics, she has hair now and continues to improve. She has had all the medications she needed for her mange and is doing great. Little Miss is heat warm negative and is on preventative for heart warm and fleas and ticks. Little Miss is a fun loving and sweet girl. She is also ... (Read More)tenacious and knows she is the top dog in the house. She is currently living with four other dogs in her foster home and loves to play with all of them. They are much bigger than Little Miss as she is only 10 pounds and they are 30 pounds to 50 pounds. She may be small but can handle her own and thinks she's boss lady over them. She loves to sit on your lap and she must sleep under the covers in bed with you. She loves toys and likes to play with balls. Little Miss rides well in the car, walks fairly well on the leash, loves meeting new people, and other dogs. She has not been tested with cats. Little Miss is working on house training and seems to be improving every day. Little Miss is seeking a home with other dogs that like to play. She would do best with older children as she can be a bit rough with her play. She knows her name and comes when she is called. She is ready to learn many new things from her forever family. Little Miss is a Female Rat Terrier Mix that we estimate to be around 7-9 months (as of 8/1/17) and weighs 10 lbs.

    'ۢ We have LOTS of precious fur babies available for adoption, please come meet them at the Addison PetSmart - 3800 Belt Line, Addison, TX 75001 - every Saturday and Sunday from 1-6. Our adoption fees include a grooming with nail trim - all vaccines - deworming - a complete health check - a HW test if old enough - microchip - rabies - spay/neuter - and a PetSmart adoption starter kit that includes $5 off a six-month supply of HW preventative - a free %BD-hour private training session with a PetSmart accredited pet trainer - a free bag of food - a free doggie day camp session - a free overnight stay in a PetSmart PetsHotel - a free vet ... (Read More)exam at Banfield - grooming coupons - over $400 of coupons/savings - and MUCH MORE! We have a two-step adoption process. First, you submit an application, which is presented to our Board for approval or rejection. If approved, a home check is done, and if that passes - you adopt which includes a 1-week trial period, if - for any reason during that first week, the adoption is not working out, you can return the dog for a full refund of your adoption fee. ))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))PS - WE NEED FOSTER HOMES FOR ANIMALS! Fosters are the backbone of animal rescue. In most EVERY shelter - in most EVERY county - in most EVERY city - animals r being euthanized (KILLED) daily due to overcrowding - dog - cat - large - small - male - female - puppy - kitten - old - young. We cannot save them without foster homes. APPROXIMATELY ONE OUT OF THREE ANIMALS THAT ENTER A SHELTER IS EUTHANIZED. These healthy sweet pets would have made great companions. Don't know what fostering is? Briefly - it is babysitting an animal until it is adopted. FOSTERING IS FREE TO DO! Most rescues cover all expenses for fosters, and anything they do not cover is tax-deductible. If u cannot foster - please ask your friends and family to. If u want more information - Google 'animal fostering.' I'm begging - it's only temporary but lives can't be saved unless people step up - PLEASE - shelters are overflowing - when you foster one animal - you save two lives - the one you foster and the one that gets his/her space in the shelter. If you can/will foster - let me know, I thank you - and the animals thank you! PS - Have you ever dreamed of helping a rescue but don't have the time, space, or just plain don't know what to do? At your pet limit? Allergic? Can't have pets where you live? Well - how about becoming a VIRTUAL FOSTER... You can choose a minimum amount of $10 a month to 'virtually' foster a homeless animal of your choice (of course, a larger sum would be happily accepted and appreciated). What does Virtual Foster mean? Our foster fur babies typically have many veterinary bills, as this is the nature of being rescued. There are also other expenses related to the ongoing care and rehab of fosters. As a Virtual Foster, your donation will go towards the vetting - medical care, and general care of the animal you have chosen. Your donation will go a LONG way in ensuring a foster dog receives the needed care and attention! In return for your kind donation, you will receive a periodic update on the progress of your foster. Once your foster is adopted, you will be notified so that you can choose another animal to virtually foster. If you genuinely cannot adopt or foster, there are still other ways to help. Sponsor an adoption or medical treatment. Volunteer your time - drive for transports, rescue groups always need dogs transported from one place to the next. Donate money, our rescue is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit, all donations are tax deductible. Educate - spread the word about the need for fosters. Sign up for notifications from your local rescue group or shelter, and share the animals in need on social media, there are so many ways to help - thank you, please share this post (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Rat Terrier in Texas
    Rat Terrier Dogs can make good pets in Texas 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.

lnteresting Rat Terrier Trivia Low-Cost Texas Spay & Neuter Clinics
    A single Rat Terrier can kill thousands of rodents in just a few hours. Teddy Roosevelt named the Rat Terrier breed. Rat Terriers come in several color variations, but the first Rat Terriers were always black and tan. Rat Terriers are often mistaken for Jack Russells. The Rat Terrier was one of the most popular Depression-era working dog breeds.
