My name is Toby!
I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.
Why Hello there! My name is Toby! I am not your usual Rat Terrier, I am a wicked smart 4 year old 35 pound Decker Standard Rat Terrier. Never heard of a Decker Standard Rat Terrier? I am a Standard Rat Terrier from the Decker line. We do not show up in rescue very often! Here is more information on the Decker temperament http://www.deckerhuntingterrierregistry.com/newsletter/april2010/temperament.html
I like to go on walks, but to be honest I am not much of a runner or hiker. I like to play with others dogs, but they have to understand my play style which involves a lot of talking! While I do need some physical exercise, it is my mind that need regular exercising! I love figuring out new puzzle toys! I also love learning new tricks, and I enjoy doing nose work, (like when my foster mom hides something yummy in a bunch of boxes and I have to find it!) I LOVE food! I will do what ever you want, usually ;) if you have food. My prey drive is pretty high, Deckers are excellent hunters, so I would do best in a home without cats. I like all people, but once I get to know you I am extremely loyal. I do really well with children and an very respectful of them. Are you looking for a wicked smart and fiercely loyal dog as your new best friend? Because I might just be your man! I am neutered, heartworm negative, up to date on vaccinations, microchipped, and have current blood work. My adoption fee is $200.
