|Animal ID: 1821Dallas (male)|
At only 6 to 9 months old, Dallas has had a lot of life and luck for one little pup! He was rescued from a high-kill shelter in North Carolina, where he'd been found as a stray and turned in by the woman who had almost hit him with her car! Now this 12-lb. fella with handsome markings is hoping that good fortune will bring him a home to call his own. In his current foster home, Dallas loves to play and snuggle with the other dogs every chance he gets! His naturally kind disposition makes him easygoing to the point of letting the others boss him around a bit, so a home with other friendly dogs will be best. Walks are a favorite activity (he walks very well on the leash), and with those long legs, he'll make a great running or hiking partner! Dallas is working on his house-training and doing very well! Whether it's chewing on a stick, chasing a ball, running after a Frisbee, or snuggling in your lap, Dallas is in his 'happy place.' He'll make a wonderful pet for someone looking for a playful pup that loves to snuggle too! Frankly, we think he's such a good, sweet boy that we don't know who will feel luckier--Dallas or his adopter. See more pictures of Dallas in his online album at http://www.imageevent.com/newrattitude/dallas . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Dallas, 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: 16-10-10-00382Sweetpea (female)|
Sweetpea is old, doesn't see or hear well but I think she would still be a good companion for someone at home. I have had surgery on my foot and can't walk for several months. She needs to be able to go out more and requires more care and time than I can give her. My husband has to take care of me and work so he can't help her. I don't want to put her down but if someone can't take her that will be my only choice!

|Rescue Me ID: 16-10-01-00326Shelly (female)|
Shelly's guardian had to go into a nursing home so Shelly set about looking for a new place and family. She is about 4 years old and was very chubby, however, she looks much better and only has a couple of pounds to go before she is at her ideal weight. Being under careful supervision and good food has made a lot of difference in her energy level, health and ability to get around. Shelly never wants to be called 'Dumpy' again. Shelly has a great personality and has been very adaptable to her foster's living situation with 5 dogs and a cat. She loves to go for walks and has developed a taste for playing with the other dogs. She can be a little growly if bothered when she is with the foster Mom but she has learned that behavior is not acceptable. Shelly loves to cuddle! and she loves people! She will make someone a wonderful little companion! She will require a fenced yard to keep her safe and a family that will help her stay healthy. (Less)

|Animal ID: 1819Odie (male)|
Odie is an active and energetic youngster around a year old weighing just under 13 lbs. This bright, busy boy is completely house trained and crate trained. He also knows verbal commands for sit, lie down, off, stay, go to (get in) crate, and spin. Odie loves treats and is easily motivated to learn new tricks and behaviors. He also loves playing with his toys. Life is good for Odie when he feels safe and comfortable in his surroundings. He is sweet and affectionate with people he knows. But things weren't always so great, and he does present some behavioral challenges, thanks to less than ideal treatment in his previous home. Odie is very insecure and fearful, and certain situations bring him much anxiety. For instance, when walking on a leash, he reacts to passersby, other dogs, people on bikes, etc. by lunging and barking aggressively. He could be a bite risk if he felt threatened and a stranger did not respect his space. Odie's new family will need to be understanding of his fears, diligent about avoiding situations where he might feel threatened, and willing to work with him to build his confidence and help him overcome his anxieties. Odie gets along well with the children in his current home, but he's stressed by the comings and goings of their friends. He is also scared of most dogs, so ideally a quiet home without a lot of visitor activity and where he could be an only dog would be best for Odie. A fenced-in yard to eliminate the need for leash walking for potty time and exercise would be perfect. This little guy has so much potential. With a little help, he will make someone an amazing companion. For more photos and a cute video of Odie, please visit his online album at http://ImageEvent.com/newrattitude/odie . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Odie, 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.
