Here's little Lucas! He is a 2 year old chocolate and white rat terrier/chihuahua mix who is 9 pounds of playful joy. He was found as a stray, and spent several months at a shelter. Even still, he is so sweet and trusting, and loves to be cuddled. Lucas is house trained, crate trained, and likes to ride in the car. He hasn't shown interest in cats, and is friendly to the children he's met. He has been friendly and curious in meeting dogs introduced to him. He's doing well learning leash commands, and responds well to food rewards. Lucas was born with luxating patellas in his rear legs, so his gait and stance are a bit different than other dogs. His condition isn't painful and doesn't require correction, but he prefers soft surfaces, as it's easier on his joints. He runs and plays like any other dog, but takes time to negotiate stairs and jump onto furniture. He doesn't mind being carried up the stairs, and it's a great chance to snuggle with this happy little guy. Make sure you see his album for more pictures! Lucas has been waiting for a long time to give his heart to the right person. Could it be you?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Lucas, a Festus Rat Terrier/Chihuahua dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Rat Terrier/Chihuahua for sale in Festus, or seeking a Rat Terrier/Chihuahua 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/Chihuahua breeders who help with Rat Terrier/Chihuahua rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Festus paves the way for another one to be saved.
