    Julia is a lucky dog- she was rescued from a rural high kill shelter in the nick of time. We went to rescue another dog, and ended up rescuing her too. Julia was a staff favorite so they asked us to take her. Poor dog had still had some milk animal control found her. No puppies were found, so they think she was dumped.

Animal ID: 2001Cowboy (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Young Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Say howdy to Cowboy. He's just 1 1/2 years old with a bantam size of only 10 lbs. But with kin likely hailing from Rat Terrier and Jack Russell stock, he's got a heap of personality! This playful fella loves other dogs and likes to spend his days rounding up tennis balls. It's not unusual to see him trotting around the yard with one in his mouth or galloping full speed to fetch a ball before the other dogs do. He's got the athleticism and high energy of an agility dog, and he might make a darn good one! He can make a bit of noise when he's playing, but he doesn't mean any harm by it because he's a pretty easy-going dude at heart. However, he ... (Read More)might be a little too rambunctious for very young children. Cowboy is one smart cookie. He's doing a bang-up job at house-training and just about has it down, and he'll learn your house rules quickly. When the dinner bell rings, he'll be right there, but he's well-mannered and will take treats from your hand as gently as a newborn lamb. This little pup has it all--he's playful, cuddly, and smart as a whip. The only thing he needs now is a person like you to say, 'Whoa, Cowboy! Sit and stay a spell.'

Animal ID: 1976Bella (female)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Everybody has an 'oops' moment. We had one several weeks ago when three puppies, identified by a shelter as Rat Terrier and subsequently rescued by New Rattitude, started growing and growing and...well, let's just say that we're pretty sure that their family tree contains few, if any, actual Rat Terrier branches. Nevertheless, these cute, sweet pups long for a loving home just as much as any other dog. One member of this trio of 'honorary' Ratties is Bella, an adorable almost 4-month-old puppy, weighing 17 lbs. Some folks say they can see some Beagle in her eyes, but since her adult weight may turn out to be around 50 lbs., there is clearly ... (Read More)a larger ancestor in her background too. While Bella's exact heritage remains a mystery, there's no doubt that she's one of the sweetest, most playful pups you'll ever meet. She will play for hours with the other dogs in her foster home, and she's friendly with everyone she meets. Bella normally naps snuggled with her littermates, but she also loves the opportunity to cuddle with her human friends too. Being just a puppy, she's still working on her house-training, but she's doing very well and usually waits for an opportunity to go outside. After a long day of fun, Bella will enjoy peaceful evenings with you and will sleep quietly in her crate at night. (She'll also rest there if you have to leave her home alone for a bit.) Bella encourages you to check out some more pics of her at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/bela because she knows that once you do, you won't be able to resist her beautiful eyes and big, soft ears! ------------------------------------------------------ IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING BELLA, 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: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids)

    Tippy came to us from a local shelter when we got Autumn. Tippy is 17lbs and up to date on all vaccines, heartworm negative. He will be neutered and microchipped prior to adoption. He does well with other dogs but we have not tested him with cats yet. He can be wary of strangers but loves his people. He is a lower energy fella but will run around outside and play. If you are interested in Tippy, please fill out our adoption application at http://tysorvet.net/adoption-application/. Please be sure to fill out every field even if it doesn't apply.

Animal ID: 1971Cooper (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi, my name is Cooper. I'm a 6-year-old 23-lb. love bug, and I'm looking for someone like you to love. I'll follow you everywhere, snuggle with you, and ask you to play with me. My three favorite things in the world are being with people, running, and playing with squeaky toys. I'm full of energy and would enjoy romping with another dog or kids, if you have them. I would also make a great companion for cycling or backpacking on trails. Let's not bike or hike too close to busy roads, however, because big cars zooming past can be scary. I'm trying to get used to them, but for now, I'd rather not walk or even live near a noisy road. In fact, I ... (Read More)would be happiest in a home in a quiet neighborhood-- a home with a fenced yard and a dog door, where I could go in and out on my own. (Speaking of quiet, I won't annoy our neighbors with barking.) And while I'm wary of cars zipping by, being inside a car is as easy as chowing down on a dog treat. I love car rides and will usually sleep during trips. I'm almost a master at house-training, only having a couple of indoor accidents when everything was new and I was nervous. I come when I'm called, and I'm good in a crate, though I prefer being loose in the house. However, you'll want to keep an eye on me because I do like to shred paper and steal clothes that are lying on the floor. Just tell me no. I'll listen and try to remember the next time. I'll even like your cats, as long as they don't scare me with that hissy sound they can make. I do so want to be your loyal, good Rat Terrier. I hope you'll give me that chance. What do you say? See how life could be super with a dog named Cooper by visiting my online photo album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/cooper. ------------------------------------------------------ IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING COOPER, 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 Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Riley is a Rat Terrier/Jack Russel female. We adopted her from a local shelter as a stray a little over 3 years ago. She is very loving, likes to be sitting next to someone. She needs a home with no kids, as she is very uneasy with my 1 year old. She is probably somewhere between 4-6 years old, up to date on vaccines.
