I am already neutered.
Herbie is a small ( 15 pounds) guy who came to us already neutered. He, at first, was afraid and defensive for you to come to his cage, but has since become a fine fellow and has no trouble with you even cleaning his cage with a scrub brush..he just watches!! He is a good walk and does not pull at all. Gets along with all people and picks and chooses his dog friends, as he gets fairly defensive around big dogs. But he is a pleasant mix of the two breeds, and is very likeable. He will probably do better with adults as he is pretty small and could be afraid of smaller children.

Why Adoption is a Great Option
Herbie, a Metamora 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 Metamora, or seeking a Rat Terrier/Chihuahua dog from a breeder in Metamora.
Rescues and shelter volunteers in Metamora 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.
On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Metamora 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
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 Metamora paves the way for another one to be saved.
