    [Read About Natural Incontinence Care] Black and White Rat Terrier he has a dermatological problem with his skin so he scratches and bites at himself a lot. He belonged to only one owner since he was a puppy. He belonged to my mother-in-law who passed away and my wife and I can not afford to take care of him and we are not allowed animals where we live. We are trying not to have to take him to the animal shelter.

Animal ID: 1445Kelsey (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

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

    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 ... (Read More)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.

Animal ID: 1438Jester (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Young Adult

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

    Jester is an active and playful 13-lb., 1-year-old boy who loves to run with his foster dad and could play fetch all day. With a mind that is always in think mode, Jester needs that special person to give him plenty of exercise. His foster parents think that he would make an awesome agility dog because he is a fast runner, a quick learner, and very focused on his owner. He loves to 'play wrestle' with the other dogs in the home and is obsessed with his squeaky toy. He is a bit of a hoarder with his toys and likes to carry them around the house. Jester would do well in a calm and quiet home with parents who are active and maybe another canine ... (Read More)play buddy to wrestle with. He lives with two children ages 5 and 11, but his energy and athleticism might be too much for some young children. He is house trained and knows how to use a doggie door. In an active home that will keep his mind busy and give him plenty of exercise, he will be a wonderfully loyal companion. You can see more pictures of Jester in his online photo album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/jester . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Jester, 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.

    Hello My Name is Mighty Mouse! I am a friendly female who is around 2 years old I only way around 15-20lbs full grown.

I have lived both in and outside and need help with potty training. I think I would really enjoy being an indoor dog too. This dog is not being fostered by FCHS ...

Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Wonderful dog that is very loyal and loves to sleep and be petted. Had him since he was a baby. Kids make him nervous and that is part of why we are seeking him to be adopted, fostered, or short term fostered. I can possibly take him back after I move out of my apt that won't allow pets in a year...if that helps.

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Heartworm Positive 

    Betty was saved from where a group of dogs had been left in a pen...all have been rescued...she is the last one...almost died from lack of food....but she is doing great now, she's been spayed and vaccinated. She is around 7 years old (estimated), very sweet. She only weighs 10 lbs!! She is crate trained. The person who rescued her had to keep her by herself as her dogs are way too much for her(too active and too large). She would be good with older people as she just wants to be where you are and doesn't care to be on her own.

Personality: Low Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    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 ... (Read More)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)

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.
