First off, are you sure you're ready for a dog? Have you done much research on them, their attention requirements, their lifespans etc? A small dog can live up to 20 years.

It doesn't sound like you want any breed in particular.. How about going to your local animal shelter and checking out the small dogs that they have there?

Not to criticise but for info. why are you re-homing one and getting another ?

Rat Terriers are terriers. They are very intelligent, energetic and some can be a little quick to snap or bite if provoked, though I wouldn't call any breed "mean".
I'd definitely check out the dogs at the shelter - you may find the perfect match there
