Meet Scooter, a 2 year-old rat terrier. He is about 13 inches tall and weighs 18 pounds. He is currently on a weight loss program, to get him down to around 15 pounds. Scooter loves to give kisses. He loves all humans and his fellow rat terrier brothers and sister. Scooter LOVES to play and would love a friend -- either two or four-legged, to play with him. He plays nicely and does not get rough, so he would not be a concern for smaller playmates. He is not a picky eater and will gently take snacks from hands. He is okay with a crate but prefers to be with you and to sleep with his people. He rides very nicely in the car and walks nicely on a leash. He can be a little shy with new people, especially men, but will grow more confident quickly as he becomes used to a new person. He has not shown any aggression towards any humans or other animals. He is housebroken and loves his doggie door. He had shown an interest in cats, but not in an aggressive way. He is probably trying to figure out if the cat wants or needs a couple of kisses! Most everyone who meets him calls him a real gentleman. He would do well in just about any home. He is not a high strung dog, he is a calm and gentle fellow.
