Rescue Me ID: 15-02-24-00510Piper (female)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Piper is our family pet. We just moved to South Florida from Alabama and brought Piper with us b/c she has been part of our family sice August 2011. After moving into our house, we realized Piper could get through the bars on our fence. We had planned to let her be an inside/outside dog. We can not let Piper be inside full-time b/c we have a one year old and two year old. Piper is not very trusting of small children and will snap at them if they mess with her. Piper is overall a great dog for a family without small kids. She is so loving and obedient. She gets so excited when you get home! She loves walks and will never potty in floor if ... (Read More)she gets two walks a day. She does not potty in her own yard. Piper has never chewed anything in our house. She sleeps in a cage in our bedroom at night. She is also a good guard dog. Piper does bark at other dogs on walks and really doesn't like other dogs. When we adopted Piper we already had two cats so she learned to like the cats, but it took time. Piper doesn't have any health problems. She has been spayed. She takes Trifexis once a month to prevent heart worms, parasites, and fleas. We also had a tracking/identification chip placed by the vet just in case she was ever lost. Piper will be in our home until we find a home that we feel is a good fit for her. Piper seems to like all adults, but gravitates towards soft spoken women. We love her very much and hope we can find her a very loving home. Please call me if you are interested. (Less)

    I have been fostering Hans, an eight year old Rat Terrier, for the past four months and am looking for a good home for him to stay. He is up to date on shots, and dental work. He's an easy dog to care for, and would be perfect for an elderly person as well. I have found him to be dog aggressive on occasion, so a home with no other dogs is preferable. As far as cats, he is terrified of both cats in my home and leaves them well alone. He does have a slight heart murmur, this does not noticeably affect him though. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions or interest. I am located in Hollywood FL, however would be glad to take ... (Read More)Hans to you! (Less)

Animal ID: 1479Jackie (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi! I'm Jackie, and I'm eager to find my forever home. Big personalities often come in small packages, and that describes me. I am about 5 years old and a tiny girl of approximately 8 lbs. I'm very cute and I know it! My foster mom says that I rule the house, and that is the truth! I have my nose in everything that is going on, and I will talk to you and let you know when I'm happy or not so much. I love that there are lots of toys to play with in my foster home because I'm a big fan of toys. I'm not much of a lap dog, but I will want to be close by you in whatever room you are in. I thrive in a calm, routine environment and would do ... (Read More)wonderfully with someone who is home much of the time. I love to give kisses, but I don't much like to be picked up. I can get a snarky attitude if you bother me when I'm sleeping. I keep busy, but I'm not overly active. I do love the chance to be outside chasing squirrels and exploring when the weather is nice. I would be a perfect only dog, but I'm OK with other mellow dogs that will let me take over and be 'their queen.' I am a bit of a resource guarder with my bed and sometimes my people. Cats are a no-no for me. I can't help myself--I just want to chase them. I love my people, but I've not spent time around kids. I think that calm, gentle older kids could be OK. I love to go for walks. I get very excited at first but calm down quickly and walk well on the leash. I am very smart and learn things quickly. I am crate trained and totally potty trained. I'm not an excessive barker, but I will bark if the doorbell rings or to protect my home. You can see more of my cute pictures if you visit my online album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/jackie .========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Jackie, please go to New Rattitude's website at http://www.NewRattitude.org/adopt.htm, where there is detailed information and a link to our adoption application.

    Foxy is a mini heeler about a year old. She is a gorgeous little thing, very fast and agile! She needs some manners, and actually jumped up on the counter her first night at foster moms!

    Hi! My name is Viola, but I go by Vi most of the time. I am a sweet 3 yr old, 25 pound, terrier mix. My favorite thing to do is snuggle on the couch with my person and watch TV. Don't let me fool you for a couch potato though, I also love to go outside and run!. I make a great running partner with a 9 minute mile! Since I was abused early in my life, I find strangers hard to trust. I may come off as strong at first, but give me a treat and I will be in your lap in 2 minutes! The ideal home for me would be one with no children and where I am the only pet so I can get as much love and attention as possible! I am looking for someone who is ... (Read More)patient, loving, and willing to let me love them for the rest of my life! Viola is spayed, and up to date on vaccines. Vivi is also house and crate trained, as well. Adoption fee is $125.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Rat Terrier in Florida
    Rat Terrier Dogs can make good pets in Florida if they match your IifestyIe. The Rat Terrier is a small breed of hunting dog also sometimes known as a Feist. Rat Terriers are vivacious, playful, and bold. This breed is great with children. Adult Rat Terriers adapt well to adoption. Rat Terriers are very smart and trainable. This breed can live in an apartment but needs plenty of vigorous exercise each day. Rat Terriers enjoy romping in a fenced yard, but because they are enthusiastic diggers, fences should be buried or reinforced around the base.
