|Rescue Me ID: 15-03-14-00427Shelby (female)|
I got shelby from a rescue group 4 years ago,she was part of an animal hoarding case and had been very neglected and mistreated. She is extremely affectionate once she gets to know you but most of the time only warms up completely to women. She would be a perfect companion for a single women with older or no children. She is not aggressive just very submissive. She needs to be in a home with a fenced yard or walked on a leash, has never needed any of this at my home and will come to me when I call her but if a man scares her and she can get outside she will run! She stays in a kennel while I work and prefers to sleep in the bed with you but does fine in her kennel as well. Overall she is just a sweet little girl who just wants to be loved! My family has had to make some VERY unfortunate decisions about living arrangements and I can only keep one dog and my senior boxer needs more of my care right now. (Less)

Charlie is a 9 YO, male, neutered Jack Russell /Rat Terrior Mix in Rutherford County, NC. His owners had to surrender him when they moved and couldn't take him with them. Charlie's heart worm negative, UTD on shots, house-trained, in perfect health, and gets along great with other dogs, cats, and children. He would do well with an active family. This is a sweet, loving boy who wants to belong to a family again. Don't let his age fool you...Charlie can act just like a puppy, then calm down and be a lap dog, a perfect combination!

|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.

|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 15-lb, 2-year-old is content to enjoy your company. And she knows what it means to be a lady--greeting you with a wag of the tail instead of jumping on you in excitement, and using a doggie door to do her business outside. Kelsey loves to cuddle in bed although she can be quite the bed hog, sprawled out and giving you a big kiss when you awake. How can one resist such a beautiful big brown-eyed girl with her shiny red coat, white socks, and a scarf to match? This is a beauty who needs no airbrush for her photogenic poise. Kelsey will be very mindful of you and want to watch over you, occasionally sounding an alarm, which makes her an excellent watch dog, but never barking obsessively. She needs a home with a dog-savvy person who has the patience to let her learn to trust on her own terms. Because of her intense anxiety toward strangers, Kelsey will need a local adoption. Once she overcomes her anxiety and builds the relationship, she will be emotionally tied to you for life. That's just the kind of girl Kelsey is. She would love to sign up for training with you to help build the bond, gain confidence, and overcome distrust. Through her new experiences she will keep growing and that beautiful spark that her foster mom sees and appreciates will shine through for you, too. Kelsey is good with other dogs that she trusts and even wrestles with an active fellow foster brother, but having other canine companions isn't a must for her because she really prefers the companionship of her special human. So put that cup of coffee down for a minute, check out more photos of Kelsey at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/kelsey, and apply to share Kelsey's life journey. ========================================================================================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: 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.

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.
