Firecracker is a three-year-old male Rat Terrier. We rescued him from a shelter in Vicksburg, MS. He was heartworm positive, but has since been treated. Firecracker is housebroken and crate-trained. Initially right out of the crate, you can certainly see why he was named Firecracker. But he does calm down when it is just you and him and becomes a lap dog. He gets along well with other dogs and loves to run and play with other dogs. He is neutered and is up-to-date on his vaccinations. Firecracker would make a wonderful family dog for an active family. He does well with children.
