|Animal ID: 1298Jax (male)|
Jax is a 5-year old blue and white Rat Terrier who weighs 13 lbs. He is a very relaxed and laid-back boy and gets along well with other dogs and cats. He is house trained and very well behaved when left alone in the house. Jax especially loves children and has claimed the foster family's six-year old daughter as his own. She wrote the following for anyone interested in adopting him: 'Jax is a very good boy. He likes dogs, cats, and loves other kids. He only barks outside sometimes, or when people knock on the door. He loves dinner and chewing on bones or deer antlers. He likes to wear his sweatshirt and lie by the fireplace especially when it's cold outside. At night we lie in bed and read, then he sleeps in my bed underneath his blanket. He will always love you.' If you would like to see more photos of Jax, please check out his photo album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/jax. ================================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Jax, 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.

|Rescue Me ID: 13-12-05-00085Amber (female)|
Hi, my name is Amber! I'm about 20lbs and have a short haired smooth brown coat. I'm a Mountain Feist breed possibly mixed with some terrier. I am spayed, housetrained, and current on all my vaccines too. My current owner saved my life when I was a puppy from a neglectful and abusive environment; I was in very bad shape and but my owner rehabilitated me into a sweet and loving dog! Due to my very rough start I do not get along well with other dogs so I need to be in a home where I'm the only one... that just means I get all your love and attention to myself!! I'm very sweet and low maintenance and I understand and obey many basic voice commands (come, sit, stay, no, paw, etc). I love being spoiled and will lay with you on the couch while you scratch me to sleep and will sleep right on your pillow in the bed with you at night (if you let me of course!). I'm primarily an inside dog but I also LOVE going on walks and hiking trails. If you are interested in meeting me, please contact my owner, John, at 704-608-9701. Can I be your new best friend?

|Rescue Me ID: 13-12-01-00195Peanut (male)|
Hi there! My name is Peanut! I am a happy go lucky little guy with a big personality. When I first came into the rescue from the shelter I was kind of sick and had to stay at the doggie doctor to get better, but I am all over that and ready to go. They tell me that I have to go back to the doctor soon to get something called 'neutered' but I'm not worried about that. I just like to romp and play and be held and give kisses! I love people, and I get along with the three cats that live in my foster home. I am up to date on my shots and microchipped, so I am ready to go! If you are interested in finding out more about Peanut, please visit our website at www.fchsnc.org where you can see more pictures and fill out an adoption application. Peanut will be neutered the first week of December 2013. (Less)

|Rescue Me ID: 13-11-19-00213Jersey (male)|
Hi my name is Jersey and I am living with my foster family in Statesville, North Carolina. I was surrendered by my owner when I got sick after eating rat poison. The shelter made sure I was feeling better and then I was free! I am a sweet boy, housetrained (I go to the door when I want to be let out) and love to take rides in the car. I can't say I am a fan of cats, but then again, my terrier instincts tell me I should chase them! My foster family loves to play with me outside and I love the outdoors! I am a bit shy at first but will warm up to you with a proper introduction. I am a snuggle bug, love some couch space with my human! I am up to date on my vaccines, neutered, and HW negative! I am about 8 (holding up two paws!), which for a Jack Russell means that I won't chew on your shoes any more, but you are going to be stuck with me for a very long time! My adoption fee is just to cover all vetting that has been done for me since my sickness. Now that I am healthy and happy, I am ready to run in to the arms of my forever home!!!! (Less)

|Animal ID: 1296Ritter (male)|
Ritter is a Rat Terrier mix who is estimated to be 3 years old. He loves to keep a watchful eye on his person and is eager to please. He is a great family dog or for someone who is looking for a buddy to take on adventures. He is eager to go for car rides, runs, hikes...you name it! As long as he is by his owner's side then he is happy and content. He is very clever and will play fetch and tug-of-war whenever someone is ready to play. His easy-going personality makes him compatible with other dogs of a wide range of personalities. Ritter loves to cuddle up on the bed with you. He is great with children and will easily play a game of fetch with his two-legged friends. His foster home had two kids, 4-years old and 10-years old, and he is gentle and playful with both. In fact, in his foster home he is everyone's friend -- a real pleaser who always appears to have a smile on his face. He just has this grateful personality that is happy-go-lucky and ready for whatever the new day brings him. Ritter is pretty reliable on house training if kept on a schedule and also uses a doggie door. He walks well on a leash and is learning to take runs with his foster dad so he can be fit and healthy. Ritter currently weighs 29 lbs., but should ideally be 26 lbs., so he is working on slimming down a bit to enable him to healthily romp around for years to come and bring joy to those he meets. Ritter's most interesting feature is his one blue eye. When he is listening to you, he gives you such an animated facial expression with a slight head tilt. If you are looking for a charming easy-to-love fellow, then you're in luck. Ritter who will charm his way into your heart, as you can see from the photos in his on-line album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/ritter. ================================================================================================If you are interested in adopting this dog, 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.

Small dog needs a loving, forever home. We rescued him but knew it would only be temporary. We are needing to rehome him as soon as we can. Can't bear to take him to the pound with the fear of not knowing what would happen to him. About a year old, 15 lbs. Won't get much bigger. Gets along great with our 6 year old male dachshund. Very loving pup. Unsure of breed, but he is GORGEOUS! Small rehoming fee. Please message me if interested!

Contact: Linda at 704-900-8019 or complete online application and send email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Adoption Application (click to download) Come and meet them, as well as, tell any friends or family about our rescue dogs and cats. You can also meet the adoptable pets during the week by calling 704-900-8019 to set up a convenient time and the location. The adoption fee includes spay/neuter, vaccinations, deworming, rabies (age permitting) and microchipping. All dogs over 4-6 months of age are already spayed or neutered, has been vaccinated for parvo, etc. and rabies, HW tested and microchipped. We don't know what these animals have gone through and endured, (or why) in their past lives to end up here. The only thing we can do is try, hope and pray we can give them a brighter future. We want our rescued pets to have stable, loving homes where they can get lots of love, attention and live out the remainder of their lives. Animal care can be costly. Please consider whether you can afford and want the responsibility of a pet before you adopt so they never have to be homeless and end up in a shelter again. (Less)

|Animal ID: 0959Gabby (female)|
If you are looking for a great companion, I'm your girl! My name is Gabby. The name fits as I do like to talk (bark) to the other dogs in the house when I want them to stop ignoring me and play with me. I get along with my foster siblings and other dogs I've met, except for one Chihuahua who had kind of an attitude. I would prefer that cats keep their distance, though. There aren't any children in my foster home so I've only had a couple occasions to be around kids, but I did enjoy the ones I've met. I think I'd probably have fun with children if I had them in my forever family. I love to lie beside my foster mom and get belly rubs and back rubs, and give her sweet kisses and lots of love. I am a happy girl who just turned 7 this past July 4, and of course in Rat Terrier years, that is barely middle-aged. I weigh 20-21 lb. but have a defined shape. I am house trained. I really like going for walks but I have mixed emotions about car rides. In new situations I'm shy and somewhat scared until I realize I'm welcome and am not going to be hurt. I am very frightened by storms, which isn't surprising since I was abandoned dog who was rescued in a storm. At night I sleep with my foster mom and two other dogs in a wonderful big bed. At first she had to carry me to bed from the downstairs sofa - I thought that was where I was supposed to sleep. I didn't know I could sleep with her, but now I do it's heaven! I'm not a total 'Velcro doggie,' as sometimes I will go and lie somewhere by myself (thought close by so I can keep an eye on my foster mom while she works around the house) or I'll go upstairs where I can see outside. I don't understand why I haven't been adopted yet. I'm such a sweet, loveable girl! Take me home and I promise to give you a lifetime of unconditional love. Check out some more photos of me in my photo album at www.imageevent.com/newrattitude/gabby. ================================================ If you are interested in adopting this dog, please go to New Rattitude's website at http://NewRattitude.org/adopt.htm, where there is detailed information and a link to our adoption application.

|Animal ID: 0888Gypsy (female)|
Gypsy is a born country girl. At 15 lbs. and 7 years old, she is full of life and loves to be outside hunting for squirrels or inside by her companion. She gets along well with the dogs in her foster home and is pretty easy-going. Gypsy does not mind the rain and has no fear of melting, as so many other Rat Terriers do, and she is not afraid of thunderstorms. She enjoys quiet walks along the trails, where she catches sight of the deer before her foster mom does. Gypsy is extremely loyal, dependable, and stable, and her best feature are her brown almond-shaped eyes. She is a quiet, well-mannered lady who tolerates children (her foster home has a 4-year old and 10-year old). She is reliably house trained and uses the doggie door. Check out a few pics of Gypsy in her on-line album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/gypsy. ================================================================================================If you are interested in adopting this dog, 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.

|PIease Read Before Adopting a Rat Terrier in North Carolina|
Rat Terrier Dogs can make good pets in North Carolina 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.
