Ed's Story...
My name is Ed. I am 6 years old, 16 inches tall, and 22 pounds. I am a standard Rat Terrier, and currently live with two other dogs that I have had no problems getting along with (or any other dogs I've ever met). I used to have a cat and I really liked to chase and bark at her, so I probably wouldn't be a good match for a home with cats. I love children! I'm a little overwhelming for very small children, but I can't wait to visit with any kids over the age of 4 or 5. They seem to have the same energy level that I do, so we get along just fine. I have many hobbies; chasing squirrels, digging in the yard to get moles, etc. I do require a securely fenced yard, and you should be sure to check and make sure it stays secure, because if you don't - I will find a way out. My current mom rescued me approximately 3 years ago from a local kill shelter. We have trained in Rally Obedience and dog Agility together. I earned my AKC Canine Good Citizen certificate a couple of years ago. I also have my ILP with AKC, so that I can compete in companion dog events. I walk on a leash without any problems and love to work... for food. I am in excellent health and my teeth are in good shape - and so is my waistline. If you are looking for a Rat Terrier with enough energy to play when you want who is more than willing to hang out on a blanket and nap too, then I'm the guy for you.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ed, a Jacksonville 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 Jacksonville, or seeking a Rat Terrier dog from a breeder in Jacksonville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Jacksonville 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 Jacksonville 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 Jacksonville paves the way for another one to be saved.
