Facts about Bert

  • Breed: Rat Terrier Mix
  • Color: Black
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
Bert is in a foster home that is working with him to get him used to the world. Bert recently came to ATTR but before that we think he has lived his life in a cage. His world has been very small for his entire life. The ATTR staff worked with him and then an experienced ATTR foster home stepped in to help get him used to life in a home with a family to love him. We are looking for his forever home that will get plenty of help from the foster home to get him transitioned into his forever home.
A message from the foster:
This is Bert my new foster. He is apprx a 3 year old Terrier Mix. He is very skittish. He is very sweet and quiet. He would do well in a quieter home. He is starting to relax after 3 days but needs someone who is patient to earn his trust. He is good with other dogs. He will be available thru Alsip To The Rescue after he becomes more comfortable around people. Fill out an application if interested at

After adoption and up to the spay/neuter time which is around 6 months old, the adopter is responsible to keep up with vaccines and rabies at the time of spay/neuter along with 12 months of heartworm prevention and pre-surgical blood work.
The adoption fee for ages 7 months to 6 year is $300 and then $200 for seniors, which will be fully vetted at time of adoption.
