Channing's Story...
DOB 6/13/11 - Rat Terrier/Chi mix - approx 15 lbs. Neutered Male - micro chipped - current on vaccines. I would say Channing is almost all Rat Terrier. He was turned in by an owner and we were told Rat Terrier/Chi mix. Channing loves to play ball or any other activity with his foster brothers and sister. He is learning to go on walks and doing really well with that. He doesn't do well with small children and should only go to a home with kids 13 yrs and older. He is really good when left alone - he has a large pen area in the kitchen and he likes to go in his crate and sleep there with the door open. Channing is very loving and likes to be close to people. The more attention the better for him. He'll sleep on the couch or in a dog bed, but he would prefer to sleep in a bed with somebody. If you're looking for an energetic and loving young dog, Channing is the one for you! Please email Becky ( for information on how to adopt Channing.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Channing, a Mesa 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 Mesa, or seeking a Rat Terrier/Chihuahua dog from a breeder in Mesa.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Mesa 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 Mesa 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/Chihuahua breeders who help with Rat Terrier/Chihuahua rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Mesa paves the way for another one to be saved.
