Facts about Jimmy

  • Breed: Rat Terrier Mix
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
Hello, I’m Jimmy the Rat.. Terrier, that is. I’m a 3 year old, 20 lb, male cutie-pie with white, grey and tan markings. I’m quite the energetic little fella and need at least 3-4 walks a day or a lot of outdoor play time. My favourite activities are running, chasing, playing fetch, and chewing sticks. But I also like my down time and spend my leisure time at home cuddling and just hanging out. As if my cute face wasn’t enough, I also love to smile – and will do so if you just ask me to “smile!” I’m outgoing, friendly, and affectionate with familiar people and dogs, but a little standoffish around strangers. But once I get to know them (I warm up pretty fast!), my true nature comes out. I have lived with another dog my whole life and am good with adult dogs, but I need a home with no puppies, cats or young kids. That's because I am quite protective and territorial at times, and can get set off easily by hyperactivity around me.
I am in need for a new home because with the recent changes in my beloved owner’s life, she has found herself unable to give me the attention, time and care I need. She took me in after her sister could not care for me any longer and I have been with her since I was a puppy. However, due to some unforeseen circumstances, she is now living alone in a very, very small space and working very long hours. Although she would love to keep me she knows that this is not fair to me. She is willing to make the sacrifice in order to find me a loving forever home. As for me, I do not need much. A soft bed, a loving family, and an owner who won't leave me alone for long hours at a time. I also need someone willing to help me work with me through some territorial and protective issues I have, perhaps the result of being exercised too little and alone too much. I am protective of my food (so I should probably be fed by hand until this resolves), like to take possession of doorways (I know, weird, right) and may growl if someone tries to move me when I am sleeping. (I mean really, wouldn't you?)
I just had my teeth cleaned and am in very good health. I do have some food allergies which causes me skin irritation so my diet needs to be free of chicken or turkey. I am housetrained, neutered, microchipped, tattooed, and up to date on my date on my vaccinations. My adoption fe is $450.

About Home at Last Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Home at Last Dog Rescue is a small group of volunteer animal lovers whose goal is to help homeless, neglected and abused dogs find caring and responsible homes.

Our volunteers are dedicated individuals who have joined together to form a new rescue group. We are commited to helping dogs in need and to provide them a second chance at a happy life.

Our dogs are not kept in a shelter. We depend on the support of caring and compassionate people to care for our dogs until we can find them permanent, loving homes. We provide vet care and rehabilitation to all of our dogs.

Our Adoption Process...

If you are interested in adopting a rescue dog, the first step is to search through the list of our dogs currently available for adoption. All dogs remain on Adoptapet and our website ( until an adoption is finalized so all dogs listed may be applied for.

Our job is to find the right home for each of our dogs. We will contact you to arrange for a home check at your convenience. Unfortunately, many of our applications are rejected, not necessarily because there is anything wrong with the home, but because it is not the right match for the dog. Following a successful home visit, we will arrange for you to meet the dog, usually in their foster home. At that time, you will decide if you would like to adopt the dog.

Before an adoption can be finalized, we will ask you to sign an adoption contract. Depending on the dog’s personality you may be asked to visit the dog once or twice before taking him or her home. This will be most common with shy, timid dogs. Outgoing and confident dogs can most often be taken home after the first meeting. Documentation for each dog will be provided upon adoption. Adopters must be ready to pick up their adopted dog home as soon as they have been approved and have agreed to adopt the dog. Home At Last Dog Rescue BC cannot hold dogs for people who have applied but are not yet ready to accept the dog into their home.

Please note: an adoption fee is required for successful applications. The adoption fee is non-refundable, even if the dog is subsequently returned. Home At Last Dog Rescue BC will always take back one of our dogs for any reason, and without question. Adoption fees for our dogs vary. The price varies based on the age and medical needs of the dog being adopted; costs are judged on a case by case basis.
