|Animal ID: 1949King Louis (male)|
Hi, my name is King Louis, or Louie, for short. I'm a 10-lb. 2-year-old male Rat Terrier/Miniature Pinscher mix, who was found as a stray in Louisiana and taken to the shelter. Then New Rattitude rescued me and brought me to Virginia, where I live with my foster family. I like my foster family and all their dogs and cats, but I'd really like a family of my own. After all, a king does need his castle. And I'm hoping that my castle will have children or dogs (or maybe both) because I'm full of energy and love to play. I'm also hoping that it will have a fenced yard because a king needs to keep in shape and, to tell you the truth, I don't like a leash. It scares me, although I'm trying to be brave (like a king) and working hard at learning to walk on a leash. In the meantime, that yard with a fence would allow me to run and play off leash. After playtime is over, I'll sit and relax with you and maybe curl up in your lap because I like to be the center of attention. I'm very affectionate, and I'll give kisses...lots of kisses. I am house-trained and crate trained. In fact, I get very excited when I go in my crate because that means I get a treat and I really like treats. Nevertheless, I would happily jump into bed with you if I'm allowed so that we could snuggle and I could give you goodnight kisses. If you're looking for an active little fellow to be your loyal and loving companion, then I, King Louis, heartily accept your offer! ------------------------------------------------------ IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING KING LOUIS, 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: 1925Keegan (male)|
Keegan is a handsome 3-1/2-month old 14-lb. male Rat Terrier mix with a great personality and a beautiful blend of playful and calm. Keegan enjoys playing with toys and playing chase with his littermates in the backyard at his foster home, but once playtime is over, he settles down for a good nap. Keegan can be a little shy when meeting new people but will warm up quickly, especially if a treat is involved. He does well with the other dogs and cats in his foster home, but he's definitely a people dog too. He'll want to be wherever you are, soaking up any attention you might direct his way. At night he'll sleep in his crate if you want, but if you'd like to invite him into your bed, he'll happily oblige and thank you with puppy kisses before drifting off to sleep. Keegan is doing well with potty training and will use a potty pad in an emergency. He's also learning to walk on a leash although he'd much rather run around in the yard and play. Keegan would like to take a puppy obedience class with you so that he can keep working on his socialization and leash walking. ------------------------------------------------------ IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING KEEGAN, 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: 17-07-19-00519Zoe (female)|
Zoe - or Zozo - is a older lady who still has a lot of spring in her step. She identifies as a cat and loves being around them - that said, she is not socialized with other dogs. She's a little princess that is looking forward to cuddling on the couch again.

|Animal ID: 1929Pippin (male)|
Handsome Pippin is a 3-1/2-month-old Rat Terrier mix puppy, who currently weighs 14 lbs. Pippin is full of energy and loves to chase his siblings and play. Pippin also likes to be wherever his people are so that he can get belly rubs and give lots of puppy kisses and snuggles. If you're not giving him the attention he thinks he deserves, he will let you know and then follow up with a kiss of approval when he decides you've succeeded. Pippin likes exploring the backyard and playing with the leaves and twigs. He'll even bring a trophy from the yard to the house from time to time. In addition to outdoor adventures, he's fond of his toys, especially if they squeak. Pippin lives with other dogs and cats in his foster home and has no problems getting along with them. Pippin is doing well with potty training, and when he is not able to get outside, he will use a potty pad. He is learning to walk on a leash (although he is not very fond of it), and while he'd happily sleep snuggled next to his person, he is crate trained and will sleep in his crate at night. With his great temperament and personality, he's sure to be a wonderful companion for any home, and he hopes you'll continue his training so that he can be the most awesome dog ever! No doubt about it, once you meet him, you'll flip for Pip! ------------------------------------------------------ IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING PIPPIN, 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: 1909Angel (female)|
Angel is a smart, active, and super sweet Rattie mix with a hefty dose of Dappled Dachsund DNA and possibly some mystery ingredients added for extra interest. It's no mystery, however, that adorable 15-lb. 1-year-old Angel lives up to her name. Rescued after a being hit by a car, Angel has captured the heart of everyone she's met with her loving, gentle, but equally spunky personality. The five weeks of crate rest she was prescribed hardly dented her cheerful temperament, and now, cleared for all activities at last, she's bursting with enthusiasm to find her forever home! Angel enjoys snuggling, belly rubs, and sweet talk, as well as darting about the yard. She can be cowed by loud voices, so a quiet but firm approach is best if she ever needs any correction. Food motivated and eager to please, she responds well to praise and treats, and though she likes to use her mouth playfully when she has energy to burn, she has shown absolutely no aggression in a variety of situations. Angel's strict crate rest made potty training a challenge, but now that she's moving around and on a good schedule, her house-training has improved immensely. Angel can be a little shy of new people at first, but with kids and grownups alike, she just needs a few seconds of sweetness. Then she's rolling over for a belly rub and nuzzling them for more. She's also great with other dogs of all sizes, ready to play and run with them if they can enjoy her energy as much as she does. She does like to chase more than balls, though, so a house with cats is not recommended. On the other hand, a house with a fenced yard, where she could romp around off leash, would please her greatly. Angel will walk or jog as long as you are willing to go and is generally polite on her leash. Just one week after completing her crate rest, she was doing beautifully with basic obedience, like 'sit,' 'stay,' and 'come,' as well as walking on one side when leashed. You can see Angel first learning to sit and stay in this short video at https://youtu.be/DEPsg79z9zs . When she's done with romping, playing, or training, Angel gladly settles down on a bed in the office, snuggles on a lap while watching TV, wanders the kitchen while her people are cooking, or gets into her crate for a little break. She likes her crate, enjoying her tennis ball and chew toy smeared with peanut butter when her people have to go out. She sleeps in her crate at night and settles down quickly, as long as she's had activity in the evening. Smart, active and delightfully sweet-summed up in one word-Angel. Wouldn't you like to be the active family with whom she shares her cheerful outlook, playfulness, and devotion? ------------------------------------------------------ IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING ANGEL, 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.

|PIease Read Before Adopting a Rat Terrier in Virginia|
Rat Terrier Dogs can make good pets in Virginia 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.
