Facts about Jeri

  • Breed: Rat Terrier
  • Color: White - With Black
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 8048238-Arave-D-Jeri

Jeri and his sister, Meri were found scrounging for themselves on rural and unoccupied land. They were both timid and scared so it took a while to coax them out from their hiding space. But, once Jeri decided to trust, his little sister followed his lead, as she always does. 

Jeri is always the first of the two to try new things or to greet new people. Once you've earned his trust, he's a very loving and playful boy who adores attention from his human. He will probably always be wary of strangers. Jeri plays well with other dogs once he's had a chance to get to know them. We don't think either would be good with little children because of their timidness and their Terrier tendencies. 

Rat Terriers have a lot of energy and many are good at agility & obedience training which also serves as excellent exercise.  

Jeri is neutered, vaccinated and on HW preventative. You can speak to his foster parents to learn more by calling 662-342-9448 or emailing:

About Desoto Animal Rescue Society

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and placement of unwanted, abandoned, and abused pets, giving them a second chance at a loving forever home. All animals taken in receive necessary medical care, vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered prior to adoption.

We are not a shelter with a facility where you can visit our pets. All rescued pets live in our own homes, where they are evaluated and cared for until they find their ideal adoptive family. We carefully screen prospective homes and require all applicants to go through an adoption application process.

We are not affiliated with the Desoto County Animal Shelter or any governmental agency. We do not receive any taxpayer funds. We operate solely on donations and the revenue we generate from fundraising events. 100% of our incoming funds go directly towards the care of our animals and to pay our vet bills. All other expenses are paid for by our own volunteers.

Donate to Our Rescue Group...

Please join us on April 23rd 2016 for our fundraiser, Furry Affair @ Bonne Terre to help us Save More Lives! We can't do this work without your support. More info and Tickets available on our website: We've also made it very easy for you to donate one time, set up a recurring payment/sponsorship or do a tribute for someone.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Please see our website for the locations and times of our Adoption Events. We occasionally have special events which we're unable to post on all sites.

Our Adoption Process...

All pets are up-to-date on routine vaccinations and are spayed or neutered prior to adoption. All dogs are tested heartworm negative and all cats are tested feline aids/feline leukemia negative. We require a pre-adoption application and a home visit. To help cover our veterinary costs, we ask for a $125 adoption donation for dogs and puppies and a $75 adoption donation for cats and kittens.
