|Animal ID: 1541Silas (male)|
Silas is a sweet 2-year-old blue Rat Terrier, who weighs 18 lbs. He is house trained, crate trained, and gets along well with other dogs and cats. While in foster care, Silas has been working on regaining his confidence and learning that it is OK to relax, have fun, and be a carefree, playful dog. This sensitive, submissive boy would like nothing more than to find his forever home, ideally one with a fenced-in yard and possibly another low-key, submissive dog friend to show him the ropes and nap with him. Silas loves being with people, including children, but if the activity level of the household gets too high or loud, he will go find a quiet place of his own, so he would likely do best in a home with older or dog-savvy children. If you'd like to see more of Silas, please check out his photo album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/silas . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Silas, 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: 1560Bambi (female)|
Hello, my name is Bambi. I am just 6 months old, and I currently weigh 11 lbs. I'm pretty confident that while my adorable face may have drawn you in, my sweet personality will really seal the deal. I am a very energetic little girl, who loves to play all the time! If I am not playing, then you can probably find me curled up sleeping from all the playing I have been doing. Humans are my favorite thing to play with. I live in a home with two human children, and I think they are pretty rad. They play with me and throw my toys, which are my next favorite thing. Toys just make my tail wag, and foster mom says there is nothing cuter than a puppy shaking a stuffed squeaky toy. There are other dogs here, too, and we play and get along, although I sometimes sound a little bossy. Anyway, if you have kids, I would be super happy to play with them. Just remember, though, that since I am still a puppy, I need to continue to learn puppy manners, so a class where I get to socialize would be a lot of fun! I know how to go potty outside and get to go through this cool doggie door to explore. At night, I sleep in a crate with a stuffed monkey, which I love! Now that you've spent some time with me, you've fallen in love, I'm sure. So what are you waiting for? If you want to see more of my adorable cute face, then check me out at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/bambi . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Bambi, 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: 14-12-27-00270Oscar (male)|
Oscar is a miniature Rat Terrier that we rescued from Animal Control about a year ago. He had been a stray and was neutered aat Animal Control. He is an adorable, quiet, snuggly dog who likes to sleep on your lap,go for walks, and go for rides in the car. He weighs about 15 pounds. He is sometimes ok with our other 30 pound dog but tends to be dominant and they are no longer getting along well so we need to find him another home. He is ok with my kids but would be better with adults as an only dog I think. He has had private dog training at home and will usually come, sit, down, stay and place. He is very well crate trained. He usually comes to the whistle. He rarely barks. That may be part of the reason he has the occasional pee accident in the house, because he doesn't let us know when he has to go out, like our other dog. When we tried working with a bell on the door he was pretty quick to learn though and if you worked with him I think he would improve a lot. He probably has a few issues from being a stray too but is a nice little dog that we have loved and would love to see him in the right home. He is up to date on all vaccines and is chipped. (Less)

|Animal ID: 1445Kelsey (female)|
Imagine sitting outside as the sun comes up, sipping morning coffee, with an adoring canine companion at your side. Faithful Kelsey is THAT kind of dog! Not one to hog your lap, this gentle 2-year-old is content to enjoy your company by sitting near you. And she knows what it means to be a lady--greeting you with a wag of the tail, instead of jumping in excitement, and using a doggie door to do her business outside. At night, she likes to sleep in her dog bed or politely at the foot of your bed. Although she can be a tad shy in new surroundings when strangers try to pet her or cars whiz by, she is gaining confidence every day as she encounters new sights and smells. She would very much like to continue to experience these adventures in her new home so that her confidence can keep growing. Kelsey is good with other dogs and even wrestles with an active fellow foster brother, but having other canine companions isn't a must because she really prefers the companionship of her human. She tends to want to overeat, so she needs to be on a feeding schedule and not allowed to graze in order to maintain her lovely 15-lb. figure, and while she doesn't show much interest in toys, she does love her bones! Kelsey will be very mindful of you and want to watch over you, occasionally sounding an alarm, but never barking obsessively. She gets along great with the kids in her foster home, but she would also be an awesome companion for a retired person. So put that cup of coffee down for a minute and check out more photos of Kelsey at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/kelsey . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Kelsey, 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: 14-04-23-00304Einstein (male)|
Einstein was surrendered to Russell Rescue, Inc by his human mother of ten years when she could no longer care for him like he deserved. She made the choice to seek out a rescue that would find him the best home, even sending a letter with him. Einstein is diabetic, and is on a diet that has allowed us to reduce his insulin needs, and is in great health. He has lost weight, gained energy, and has a little attitude! Einstein is fine in his crate, but prefers the bed, snoring, upside down, under the covers. He also has a shoe fetish, enjoys the yard, his canine siblings, and treats. Einstein would eat all day if it wouldn't wreck his diet. What is best for Einstein is routine. Otherwise, his diabetes is under control and can be managed easily! Won't you consider giving this spunky little man a forever home, where he can run, play, and be loved! (Less)

|Rescue Me ID: 12-12-08-00117BB (female)|
BB is one of the sweetest girls you ever wanted to meet. He number one skill is sleeping close to you at night. Second would be sitting in your lap while you pet her. Unfortunately, as our family has grown so has the pet population. BB has not adapted well at all. We've even met with a behaviorist. BB needs to be an only dog. It was amazing to watch her shine with the trainer. The ideal placement would be retired or divorced person looking for a buddy.BB does not have a mean bone in her body. I cheked questionable with kids was because in her nervousness, i cant take anything for granted.

|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.
