Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Micha is a very sweet 10 month old puppy. At almost a year old he will likely not get much bigger. His current weight is 16 pounds. He gets along well with other dogs and loves to play and cuddle. He walks well on a leash and is learning basic commands. As you can see from his photo he has 'sit' down pat. Our best guess is that Micha is a Rat Terrier/Schipperke mix but there could be some chihuahua in there as well! He is hoping that Santa brings him his own forever family soon.

Animal ID: 1491Mason (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Mighty little Mason, a 2-year-old, 8-lb. sensation of a pup, combines the spunk of a Rat Terrier with the spirit of a Chihuahua. His floppy ears and underbite give him a unique and endearing look that matches his gentle disposition. He adores his person almost to the point of possessiveness and struts with confidence when he goes for walks but can do the 'chihuahua shake' when he feels insecure, so he is looking for a home to help him grow his confidence with positive new experiences without coddling him too much. Foster mom thinks that Mason would also thrive in a calm home because too much excitement can make him a little bossy. When the ... (Read More)Jack Russell in the home gets overly excited and dances, Mason bosses her right back into line. Mason is house trained, and he gets along with the other small dogs and the two children, ages 11 and 5, in his foster home, so he would probably be happy in any kind of household--from that of a single retired person to one with dog-savvy kids, as long as they know not to be too rough and not to overwhelm him with rowdiness. With the personality and charm to earn your treats and the eyes to win your heart, Mason is missing only one thing--and that's a warm and comfy lap to call his own. Check out Mason in his online album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/mason . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Mason, 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.

    Luciana Germano Hi, do you know anyone who clipe foster my 11 year old female rat terrier? She's been with me for 10 years but I'm working full time and she's been fragile and attacked by my 3 year-old dog. I worry about both but feel that it would be easier to place Lady in foster care since she's not aggressive. I'll pay for her expenses - I just need someone to walk her and love her. Luciana Nielson

    This is Baxter. He is an 18 month old rat terrier mix who is a ball of energy and very friendly, smart, and sweet. I rescued him back in November from Mecklenburg County Animal Control, where he had spent most of his life. Unfortunately, due to illness and my job, I've been unable to take care of him properly. Currently, he's kept in his crate while I'm at work. In October I will be travelling for work and won't be at home for three weeks out of the month. I'd like to find a person/family who has time to spend with him, playing with him and taking him on long walks; someone with a backyard where he could run around in would be ideal. He ... (Read More)loves people and other animals so I think he would fit right in with a family with another dog. Again, Baxter is HIGH energy so I want a family that will be able to keep up with him. Baxter weighs 20 lbs and is up to date on all of his shots, has been fixed, and is microchipped. He comes with his crate and all of his accessories/toys. (Less)
