Animal ID: 1964Kasey (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Most Cats 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Gorgeous Kasey didn't have a storybook life in the past. Used as a breeding dog and kept in a garage for most of her 6 years, Kasey was headed to a high-kill shelter when the breeders were done with her. A kind elderly woman kept her from going to the shelter, and this is where Kasey's life started to get better because it allowed New Rattitude to rescue her from almost certain doom. Now for the first time in her life, little 11-lb. Kasey is learning what it's like to be loved. Not surprisingly, given her background, Kasey is somewhat apprehensive around new people, and it has taken her time to learn to trust her foster family. Imagine the ... (Read More)joy her foster mom experienced the day she felt a tiny lick on the back of her leg as she was doing dishes. Right then she knew that Kasey was going to be OK. Today Kasey relishes getting belly rubs and shows her delight when greeting her foster family by wagging her tail like crazy and spinning round and round. And while she'll still need some time and patience from her adopters, Kasey will warm up, and once she gets to know you, you'll have a friend for life. She's even good with kids who are old enough to know how to interact with small dogs, but because of her initial wariness, she would not be a good fit for a family with very young or boisterous children. Kasey gets along with other dogs, both large and small, and is excellent with cats and even chickens! She loves playing in the yard with her canine foster siblings and napping with them on her huge dog bed. A very intelligent girl, Kasey has learned the command 'sit' and is working on 'stay.' She's also crate trained and working on house-training. Despite Kasey's rough start, she has a loving personality. Take one look at that sweet face, and you'll want to be the one who helps write the next chapter in her life story. You know, it's the one that ends 'happily ever after.' ------------------------------------------------------ IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING KASEY, 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.

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    recious was left behind inside the home by her owner for days! Luckily a neighbor called the vet's office and a vet tech immediately went to her aid. Precious has been with her for the past year. She would like to find a special home for Precious so she can have the attention she deserves and needs. Precious has asked for a home where she can be with her guardian most all the time and continue to get the great care she has had at her current home. She is 7 yrs. old and weighs about 15 lbs. and her name describes her perfectly! She is just a sweetheart and would make a great companion for anyone. She will require a fenced yard to keep her ... (Read More)safe and someone with plenty of love to give her. Her adoption fee is $125 and she is fully vetted and healthy. (Less)

Animal ID: 1959Brooks (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Enthusiastic is the best word to describe Brooks, a 2- to 3-year-old Rat Terrier mix of about 18 lbs. This energetic fellow is always happy running around, but he's also quite satisfied curling up with someone and just being a companion. A favorite pastime is snuggling under a warm blanket in bed with his people. Brooks gets along with other dogs, but usually he doesn't play with them and would prefer to play with his toys, either by himself or with the special people in his life. He'd be comfortable in a home as an only dog as long as he had someone to play with and to shower him with plenty of love. About those toys...Brooks is probably ... (Read More)most enthusiastic about them. He loves to charge across the yard and fetch toys, but he doesn't like to give them up to just anybody. He has to be really comfortable with you first. His foster parents are working with him to play nice and drop his toys for someone to pick up and throw for him to fetch. Nevertheless he can still be a bit possessive of his beloved toys and, as a result, should not go to a home with young children. Brooks is house-trained and sometimes will go to the door to show you he wants to go outside. However, when he first arrived in his foster home, he staked out some territory by marking a few spots. Intelligent and trainable, Brooks has learned some commands and tricks. He'll usually spin or walk on his hind legs for snacks. He also walks quite well on a leash and loves to take long walks. So you think that Brooks sounds like a great little dog who'd be fun to have in your life? Well, we enthusiastically agree! Check out more pics of Brooks at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/brooks. ------------------------------------------------------ IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING BROOKS, 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.

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Cats, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi! My name is Sophie I am a 1-2year old female feist! I weigh about 10lbs. I was abandoned at a house with over 15 other dogs. I was covered in fleas, left in a crate and scared. We were left to find our own food and water and take care of our selves. My foster mom took me home gave me a bath and I haven't missed a meal since then! I am as sweet as the day is long. Cats don't bother me and other dogs my size are ok but I need to be properly introduced to dogs larger than me. I am also house and crate trained. I am spayed, UTD on all my shots, heartworm negative, current on preventive and microchipped. I am looking for my forever home.

Animal ID: 1965Callie (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Young Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Only one thing is bigger than the ears on this tiny pup, and that's the size of her personality! Whether Callie is chewing bones, chasing a ball, or playing with a stick, her tail is always wagging. And lovely companion that she is, she's equally happy snuggling in your lap! Weighing just 4 lbs., 4-month-old Callie thinks everybody--human and canine--is her best friend, and she's practically fearless. While she gets along with other dogs, this outgoing, playful girl has the confidence to be fine on her own too. Callie is crate trained and well on her way to being fully house-trained, just having an occasional accident. To see more pictures ... (Read More)of Callie, please visit http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/callie . We know you'll find her 'ear-resistible.' ------------------------------------------------------ IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING CALLIE, 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.

Animal ID: 1956Nash (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Gentle Nash came to New Rattitude from a small shelter in rural North Carolina. This 3-year-old 15-lb. Rattie mix has settled in to his foster home quickly. He loves the other dogs there and is quite content to let them take the lead. A medium-energy fellow, he plays and plays with them and then crashes on the couch for a nap. He'll often be found snoozing with his head resting on one of his canine friends and would probably enjoy having a doggy companion in his forever home. He is house-trained and can be trusted to be a good boy being loose in the house while you're out. When you're home, Nash will want to be with you at all times and ... (Read More)might even whine a bit if you walk off without him. At night, he'll prefer to sleep in bed with you rather than in a dog bed, and he'll thank you in the morning with a kiss or two. And yes, he's a great sleeping companion. In fact, with his nice temperament and pleasant personality, Nash will be a great companion any hour of the day. Check out his online photo album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/nash for some dear pics of Nash and friends napping, plus some other great shots that will show you what life can be like with this sweetheart and all-around super little dog. ------------------------------------------------------ IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING NASH, 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.
