Animal ID: 2047Scott (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

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

    'Great Scott!' you'll say as this little Rat Terrier mix wows you with his athletic ability, friendliness, and snuggles. About 2 years old and 14 lbs., Scott is looking for a home that is as active as he is! Scott loves going for walks, running around the yard hunting vermin, and playing with the other dogs in his foster home. He is house-trained and crate trained, but he is not fond of the crate and will bark intermittently when placed there. Scott needs a securely fenced yard in his forever home as he can be quite determined to follow his nose. And since he likes the company of other dogs, he should also have at least one other dog as a ... (Read More)companion. As energetic and playful as he is, Scott does have his limits, and he needs for his boundaries to be respected. Because very young children lack the experience and self-control to recognize and respect a dog's boundaries, Scott should not go to a home with little kids. One great quality about this boy is that as much as he loves to run and play, he also knows how to enjoy a nap. Both you and Scott will relish the time spent relaxing on the couch together. You'll also appreciate that he's very treat motivated, so he's easy to train. He has already mastered 'sit,' and he walks nicely on a leash. Scott has visited the local farmers market and the pet store, and he did very well with dog introductions in both places. No barking at all! So whether you're looking for a running/hiking partner, a potential agility dog who likes to snuggle, or a buddy for those times you want to be out and about, Scott has all the makings of becoming your perfect companion. See more pictures of Scott at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/scott. ------------------------------------------------------ IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING SCOTT, 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: 18-04-08-00139Sassy (female)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Very High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Aggressive 

    Sassy is a very playful and high energy Fox/Rat Terrier needing to be rehomed immediately. Her eldery lady regretfully, was no longer able to meet her energetic needs. Sassy is very sociable, loves to play ball and with her other toys. Sassy is very possesive and protective of her bed and crate and is aggresive if you put your hand in, or near these while she is in them, but is otherwise a fantastic dog. She is house broken, crate trained & microchipped. She is up to date on all vaccinations, heartworm, flea & tick preventative. It is important that an active, loving and patient person take her and be able to spend the time with her that she ... (Read More)needs. A fee will be required for adoption to ensure that Sassy will be going to a financially responsible, loving and caring home. (Less)

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

Animal ID: 1832Roscoe (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Roscoe is wowing his foster mom with his sweet-as-sugar personality and zest for life. When this 9- to 10-year-old Rattie mix met his foster mom, he greeted her with abundant kisses and tail wags and quickly settled into the routine of his foster home. Roscoe gets along very well with the other dogs in his foster home, except for one who is too assertive for his taste. He's not comfortable around dogs that try to bully him, and he will defend himself. Roscoe isn't really high energy and walks nicely on a leash, but he really wants (and needs) a fenced yard, where he can have the freedom to walk around at his leisure and lie in the sun. This ... (Read More)little man is fully crate trained and house-trained, but if you have to go out, he's trustworthy and doesn't need to be crated. Of course, if it's possible, Roscoe would rather go with you because riding in the car is a real treat! He loves to poke his nose out the opening in the window. Also high on his list of favorite activities is lap/snuggle time with belly and head rubs, and at 17 lbs. he's easy enough to scoop up for impromptu cuddle breaks. With his wrinkly forehead and soulful facial expressions, Roscoe is sure to melt your heart. See more pictures of Roscoe at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/roscoe. ------------------------------------------------------ IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING ROSCOE, 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: 2057Izzy Grace (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

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

    Until her recent rescue, Izzy Grace lived the miserable life of a puppy mill dog, so naturally this gorgeous 8-lb. Rat Terrier, estimated to be 11, is quite shy. After what she has endured at human hands, you'll have to earn her trust. It took her a month to approach her foster family for affection and to allow them to pick her up. You'll need to give her time and space to warm up, but once she does, you will have a friend for life. And what a sweet, delightful friend she will be! She'll love curling up in your lap, all warm and safe, being cuddled and petted. She's even learning to play! There's no better feeling than watching Izzy show her ... (Read More)happiness by wagging her little stubby tail with all her might. Izzy Grace gets along great with cats and other little dogs. Naturally she's going to want a home that is peaceful and predictable, so her new family probably shouldn't have any children below middle-school age. Izzy has almost mastered crate training and is continuing to work on house-training. She'll need to have someone home with her most of the time to provide frequent, regular opportunities to go out. Although a lifetime of poor care left her with only four teeth, she manages to eat her kibble quite well as long as it's softened in warm water and topped with canned food. Izzy is so grateful for the good fortune to have been rescued from that puppy mill. Now she is hoping that fortune will bring her a family to call her own. ------------------------------------------------------ IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING IZZY GRACE, 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: 2058Emily May (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Senior

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

    What does a rescued Rat Terrier do after she has spent most of her estimated 15 years imprisoned in a puppy mill, producing litter after litter of babies? If she's a plucky little survivor named Emily May, she spins in circles of joy! It's no accident that one of Em's photos looks like a butterfly wriggling out of its cocoon because this 11-lb. sweetheart is getting ready to spread her wings and live life at last! Thanks to the legendary lifespan of the Rat Terrier and Emily May's overall good health, she likely has more than a few wonderful years ahead of her. She can't wait for her adopter to find her so that they can embark on this ... (Read More)journey together. Emily May is very shy at first, a result of having been neglected in the puppy mill, but her inherently sweet nature helps her warm up fairly quickly. She is playful and active, given her age, and has that aforementioned delightful habit of showing she's happy by spinning round and round! Her favorite pursuits involve being petted, giving kisses, snuggling in your lap, and luxuriating in the warmth of her dog bed strategically placed to capture the sun's rays. Emily May gets along well with cats and other small dogs, but she should not be around large dogs due to her small size. She would love her home to be calm and her people to be there most of the time. Emily May is now crate trained and is making great progress in her house-training. She does quite well with frequent, regular opportunities to go outside. Although she has lost all her teeth (a result of lack of care in the puppy mill), she has no problem dining on kibble softened with warm water and topped with a small amount of canned food. Emily May is such a sweet dog, an inspiring example of overcoming a sad past. Be inspired and help this beautiful little dog experience the life she so richly deserves. ------------------------------------------------------ IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING EMILY MAY, 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) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    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.
