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

    Nina is four months old and only weighs approximately 3/4 pounds or so! Yes she is that little and does great with larger dogs. She loves to play but loves being a lap dog, She would be great with other dogs or in a house as an only dog. At her size can't imagine her being a problem with cats. She is very sweet, and is eager to please her humans, ! She has been spayed, microchipped and has had her shots. She is waiting for you in Olympia, WA. Adoption Fee: $375. This includes all the medical, microchipping, health certificate for traveling, and all transportation costs to the Northwest. Please fill out this easy online application so you ... (Read More)can adopt. Thank you . Here is the link to cut and paste into your browser: If you have questions feel free to put those on your application and/or you can send us those in a separate email. We will call you promptly! We are guessing young children could accidentally harm her by simply falling on her so optimally no home with small/young children and if your grandchildren visit until they are at least 7 or so we would recommend keeping her separate for her own safety since she is so small/hence fragile. She shows no aggression towards anything or anyone, it is simply because a dog so small is delicate and could be harmed easily. (Less)

Animal ID: 1972Henry (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Handsome Henry is a very active Rattie mix with a friendly disposition. He loves going on walks or runs to work off his boundless energy and enjoys the occasional trip to the dog park. This 19-lb. 7-year-old is smart and eager to please! He is house-trained and crate trained, and he knows all the basic commands plus some tricks, which he loves to show off. He has a routine--sit, shake, down, and roll over--which he will enthusiastically perform on demand. He also loves toys, especially tennis balls and plush squeaky toys. He tends to favor one or two at a time and carries them from bed to crate and takes special care of them! Henry does have ... (Read More)some anxiety issues and can become overstimulated in certain situations. If his warning signs aren't heeded, he may snap or nip. He currently takes a medication to help keep him calm, but Henry needs an adult-only home with an experienced adopter who will be able to keep him out of trouble by recognizing and avoiding situations that may trigger his anxiety. Henry likes to know what is expected of him. He does best with set boundaries, clear communication, and a consistent routine. Adequate exercise is a must, and he would love to be a part of an active household. Henry is always up for a good adventure! He gets along well with other dogs and would be fine with a doggy sibling.

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Vaccinations Current, Aggressive 

    Skye loves to cuddle under blankets and would love to be company who wants a dog snuggled up to their side. Skye is a rescue dog and has been in four different homes. The reason he has troubles in homes is he needs a yard with a tall fence. Skye is an expert escape artist and thinks it is a game. He can jump a 4 foot fence, or escape out the door between your feet in an instant. Skye also thinks he is a hired killer and does not do well with other dogs. Since you don't know what dogs Skye is going to attack he needs in a home where he can be King away from all other dogs. Skye loves kids and will chase bubbles, and balls but don't ... (Read More)expect him to return the balls to you. Skye is potty trained, and kennel trained. Skye will gladly kennel up for car rides. Skye is a skilled rat dog and can sniff them out in home fast. You will not have mice or rats in your home with Skye around. We have taken Skye to friends homes to have him show them where pests are getting in. If you want birds chased out of your yard Skye is also a master at that. Skye has very short fur and is almost bald underneath meaning you won't have a shedding issue in your home. So if you need a dog that is an excellent companion to humans and will keep all other animals away from your home this is the dog for you. Don't forget you must have tall fence to be considered, and must be willing to walk across the street for him to avoid other dogs when out on a walk. Skye is up to date on his shots, neutered, and microchipped and had a recent teeth cleaning. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-03-20-00220Rocko (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Adorable 4 year old, 15 lb. chihuahua mix seeks patient, kind adult person to go for long walks in the sunshine and snuggles on the couch. Hi, I am Rocko! I have had a difficult few months since my previous people decided they could no longer care for me, but things have been looking up since Wonder Pets Rescue sprung me out of jail! I have been learning that the world is not quite as scary as I thought it was. I would really love a forever home with people who are understanding that I still may be afraid and will help me continue to learn that I can trust them to take care of me. My foster mommy says my 'best fit' would be a relatively calm ... (Read More)household that will follow up with a 'positive reinforcement' trainer, to help me along (all I know is that who can be scared when they get to eat such delicious treats and hear such happy voices?!). Even though I love to play with all kinds of toys, a household with small children would not be a good fit, as I still very scared of unexpected movement and touches. I also am likely to chase your cats (or other small animals), I just can't stop myself; I am okay with a very confident cat that will let me know to back off, however. I am very picky about my doggie companions and need long, very slow introductions. Careful introductions are a must, if you already have a canine companion, but once I am used to another dog, I am usually good with them. I am normally good with pottying outside. However, I really, really do not like going out in the rain and sometimes still try to find a warmer, dryer place to do my business. If you are willing to make sure I take care of business outside, though, I am good at holding it once I go back inside. I am good in the crate all day long, if you have to leave for work. I will also sleep in a crate at night, if I can see you from my crate; however, my favorite place to sleep is snuggled up next to my person all night long (extra bonus points if you want to share your blankets with me, too!). If you think you are just the perfect person for me, please e-mail Wonder Pets Rescue. They will be able to let you know more about my story and more about the future training that will help me become the confident, happy companion I am learning to be! Rocko is neutered, microchipped, wormed, and current on routine, bordatella, and rabies vaccinations. His adoption donation is $200. Wonder Pets Rescue is a 501c3 non-profit organization and adoption donations are tax deductible. Find us on Facebook!

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