Joseph has been adopted! -- Please look at our other Rat Terriers awaiting homes!


Joseph is a 6 year old male that weighs around 25 pounds. Joe is housebroken and is working on being crate trained. He gets along with other dogs, but we're not sure about cats. Even though he is a slow walker, he does enjoy going on leashed walks. He loves to frighten squirrels away with his raspy bark. He wants to be with you at all times and follow you around. He loves to sit with you, even on a small chair. He will sit behind you if there's not enough room next to you. He likes to play with his stuffed toys. He gets extremely excited when you come home as if you've been gone for a year. He is very mellow and does not seem to be possessive of food or toys. Joseph may need socialization with children under 10 but does very well with older children and adults he meets. Joe is just a love bug. he came into rescue because his family had to move and could not take him. Could you be his forever home and snuggle partner?



Our adoption fee for adult dogs is $150. Puppies under six months are $175.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Joseph, a Festus Rat Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Rat Terrier for sale in Festus, or seeking a Rat Terrier dog from a breeder in Festus.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Festus already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Festus breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Rat Terrier breeders who help with Rat Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Festus paves the way for another one to be saved.
