|Animal ID: 2049Koa (male)|
Koa means 'brave' in Hawaiian, and New Rattitude's Koa is certainly one brave little pup. To this almost 4-month-old Rat Terrier, the whole world is his friend...or his plaything. He is your normal playful, sometimes mischievous, and always loving puppy. He is 10 lbs. of energy--enough to chase the other dogs in his foster home and fetch toys for a couple of hours before crashing for a nap. One of his favorite things is just being outdoors on a nice day. He would love a fenced yard where he could run and romp to his heart's content. True to his name, Koa shows absolutely no fear of larger dogs and will attempt to engage them in play by pulling on their collars. He also loves to play with children (with everyone, in fact) and would be great in a home with kids old enough to know how to play with a pup and how to tolerate exuberant puppy play. Koa's sturdy paws suggest that he might have had a non-Rattie ancestor (or perhaps he just has great things to accomplish in this world) and that he is likely to grow to an adult size in the 20-lb. range. Koa is still working on his house-training, and he's making excellent progress in learning to go outside or using his training pad. He sleeps through the night in his dog crate. However, he is an early riser and will wake you up in the morning letting you know it's time for him to go out. Confident Koa thinks that if you see his photo album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/Koa, you'll be instantly smitten by the desire to snuggle him in your arms. Are you brave enough to look? Go ahead...take a chance! ------------------------------------------------------ IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING KOA, 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: 18-01-10-00293Daisy (female)|
Daisy is 10wks old, wormed, up to date on shots-only needs her last set of puppy shots and rabies. She's completely healthy and full of puppy energy. She loves to play and she loves to eat! She will do anything for a treat. She is almost potty trained, she uses a pee pad and will go outside but doesn't tell you when she needs to go. Kennel trained when I'm at work and sleeps in my bed at night. She's a puppy and still learning not to bite. She knows sit. I want her to go to an indoor home where she will be loved and spoiled. I will be very picky finding her a home. The only reason I'm rehoming her is because my two male dogs are too aggressive with her because she has a more dominant personality with dogs but very submissive with humans. (Less)

|Rescue Me ID: 18-01-10-00158ROCKET (male)|
This happy little boy is Rocket. (Healthy, heartworm negative/on preventative, neuter/chip scheduled for 01/24/2018) Our best guess on his breed is a MinPin mix. He is approximately one year old (01/08/18) and full grown at an adorable 29 lbs. Rocket is a perfect child-sized pup, with a super-cute personality and a soft chocolate brown coat. He is house-trained, crate-trained, and rides nicely in the car. He doesn't demand attention but he does want to be with you. He is sometimes yappy when left alone, but he also goes days without making a peep. He is not startled by doorbells or visitors and is not a jumper. Rocket is still puppy-like, but is calm and very well-behaved in the house. He enjoys toys, is easily trained, stays with his person, and is playful with our 7 dogs with no aggression at all. Rocket would love to devote himself to his own little boy or girl. If you can provide a safe, happy home for Rocket, please contact me. (Less)

|Rescue Me ID: 17-12-27-00145Sammie Grace (female)|
Sammie Grace has a story that is heart breaking and resilient all at once. In August 2017, rescue was notified of a dog that had been hit by a car in Anderson, SC. Sammie needed out of the shelter in under 24 hours, and a network of amazing volunteers transported her to Wilmington NC. It was found she had a displaced hip, fractured pelvis (Sacroiliac luxation) and a fractured tibia. The best ting SG had going for her? Her age! SG is a 12# (she came in to rescue at 9.5#) Jack/Rat and roughly 3-4 years old. This gal is a fighter! With an amazing orthopedic surgeon on board, SG has blossomed in to a 'normal' pup, if you can call the breed normal! SG will run faster than you can walk and enjoys being outside exploring. She also enjoys to simply sleep. This gal could sleep her life away, on your lap, under the covers, as near to you as she can get. She is the sweetest thing, and other than a slight head tilt and a bionic anatomy that cannot go through a metal detector, SG has recuperated to find that forever family. She is VERY shy, and needs some time to warm up to you. Her past life was apparently not that great to her. She warms up to women faster than men. She would do best in a home where she can lounge on the couch, her bed, or the grass in the sunshine. She won't be going on long hikes or runs with you, but is the perfect pup for a low key home with lots of love and scratches to give. She will demand to be PET! Sammie Grace is pure diva and this beautiful pup cannot wait for her forever home! (her vet will be more than happy to discuss his procedures and her care with you!). (Less)

|Rescue Me ID: 17-11-10-00355Scooby (male)|
Hi my name is Scooby I am not a puppy no more but I still like to play and I love affection. I grew up around cats and dogs so I am willing to make new friends! And humans boy do I love humans! My favorite things are to be pet and loved and I adore to cuddle. But, I am afraid I might not find a home because I have a little growth on my stomach but hopefully whatever human is reading this will look past that and love me for the awesome dog I am! My owners do love me and want me to go to a good home but they cannot afford to take care of me no more. All I want is to be close with a human that loves me! I love all humans but I would prefer to go to a home with older children and adults. And I am an inside doggie and I want a forever home before I leave to leave this earth to go to doggie heaven! With a human who will have patience and who loves me! Thank you for reading my story, call my owner if you want to take me home! (Less)

|Rescue Me ID: 17-04-29-00340Riley (female)|
Riley is a Rat Terrier/Jack Russel female. We adopted her from a local shelter as a stray a little over 3 years ago. She is very loving, likes to be sitting next to someone. She needs a home with no kids, as she is very uneasy with my 1 year old. She is probably somewhere between 4-6 years old, up to date on vaccines.

|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.
