Animal ID: 1819Odie (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    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 ... (Read More)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.

Animal ID: 1810Fig (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Puppy

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

    Fig is a 3- to 4-month-old 10-lb. ball of energy! Fig was taken in as a stray by some nice people in Georgia, but when no one ever came for her, she ended up in a shelter. She was rescued just in the nick of time. Now all that is behind her, and she is ready to find her forever home. With her sweet and curious nature, Fig loves everyone! She is very friendly and adjusts quickly. Not much scares this little girl. And Fig loves to play! Whether it's zooming around on her own or wrestling with the other dogs in the house, she is game! She plays, plays, and plays some more! Then she plops down for a nap. Fig has not had any accidents in her ... (Read More)foster home but is probably not 100-percent potty trained yet. A smart little pup, she has already learned 'sit,' and she's a good watch dog as she likes to talk to everyone who comes by. Being a puppy, Fig will need plenty of attention from her family to keep her busy. Fig thinks another dog to play with would be great too! Doesn't she sound like the perfect pup for you? See more pictures of Fig in her online album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/fig . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Fig, 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 w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Aggressive 

    We need to find a new home for our adorable, affectionate, funny, smart, lively 2 1/2 yo rat terrier/schipperke (we think) mix. I adore this dog, but she is bad with cats, and she has fear/aggression issues with people she doesn't know and I do not have the time to train her properly. She is very smart and highly treat motivated, so I am certain that someone who has the time to work with her could socialize her past this. She really needs a job - I think she would be a fabulous agility dog. (And she would be happy to get rid of any rats you have.) Please see the video for a demo of her agility, cuteness and energy. She loves my 10 year old, ... (Read More)but plays a bit too rough for smaller children. Also she is crate and house trained, and is a pleasure to walk with. Vet reference required. (Less)

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.
