|Animal ID: 00418Abby (female)|
Abby is a very sweet chihuahua, rat terrier mix. She is spayed, has a home again microchip, is leash trained, crate trained, and house broken. She has done well with most cats, although she gets excited at first and should be introduced slowly. Humans she takes to with patience. She has been hard to re home as she gets attached to her foster parents after the first week. Nothing some patience, belly rub and treats can't solve.She is fearful and anxious around new people but comes around beautifully when given the chance. A trainer will work with you for a week no charge if she is adopted locally to Winchester Va. If not trainer will be available through email, or phone call, also no charge. She would do best in a home with NO CHILDREN, and few to no other animals. She has mixed reactions with other dogs so we advise her being the only dog in the home. Serious inquires only, she deserves a furever home. (Less)

|Animal ID: 1679Fawkes (male)|
In the world of Harry Potter, Fawkes, the phoenix who faithfully serves the wizard Albus Dumbledore, would periodically burst into flame and be reborn from his ashes. While we certainly hope that New Rattitude's Fawkes doesn't undergo such a fiery metamorphosis, this handsome 18-lb.1-year-old certainly deserves a chance for a new life. You see, poor Fawkes, one of 56 dogs rescued from a hoarding situation in Virginia, has had so little socialization that he really doesn't know how to be a family dog. He does lots of dog things: comes when you call him, follows you around, comes up to sniff your hand, and takes treats from you, but he doesn't yet trust people enough to seek out physical contact. Fawkes loves the company of other dogs, big and small, and even snoozes with one of the cats in his foster home. He is mostly housetrained but will occasionally have an accident. In the time that Fawkes has been with his foster family, he has slowly been coming out of his shell, but he will need an understanding home to help him continue to make progress and understand how to be a real pet. Wouldn't you like to help Fawkes have a rebirth of his own? More photos of Fawkes are at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/fawkes . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Fawkes, 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: 15-10-29-00218Oscar (male)|
COURTESY POT: Oscar is a one year old rat/chi/JRT mix, living in Tazewell, VA. He is not a fan of being crated and should not be put on a tie out of any kind. Oscar has plenty of energy for an active family, is neutered and up to date on all his vaccines, and heartworm negative. Oscar loves other dogs or cats, especially those with energy like he has to run and chase him. He needs a home that can provide the outlet for play and love he needs. He is house broke, is best with a fenced in yard, and knows how to use a doggie door. Please contact Patsy ASAP at email@example.com.

|Rescue Me ID: 15-10-20-00624Ginny (female)|
Ginny is a 9 year old rat terrier-mix from a single family home, who still loves to play, and is very loving. Like all terrier breeds, she's very protective and let's everyone know when a stranger is close by. She's house trained, but does have Diabetes insipidus which makes her very thirsty sometimes, and requires medication a couple times a day. For this reason, we do leave a puppy pad on the floor inside, in case she can't hold it (She's very good at going on the puppy pad if nobody can let her out). She requires a grain free diet, for dogs with food sensitivities, but is otherwise a very healthy girl. Will make a great addition to any dog loving family. She loves to sit on couch and watch tv.

|Animal ID: 1677Hershey (male)|
Sweeter than a box of chocolates, 3-year-old Hershey enjoys cuddle time with his foster parents and loves attention. Weighing 18 lbs., he is full of energy and loves to play fetch, play with the other dogs in his foster home, and run in the yard. He also loves to use his voice when he sees or hears something of interest, so he would probably do best in a detached home, not a condo or apartment. Hershey is mostly house trained and has had only a couple of accidents inside. Check out more pictures of this handsome fellow at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/heryshey .=======================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Hershey, 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: 1530Angel (female)|
Angel is a good-natured, sweet 2-year-old 12-lb. Rat Terrier who is looking for a special kind of family. Extremely cautious and slow to warm up to people at first, she will become an eager-to-please, loving dog once she gets to know you and you give her the time to adjust. She enjoys getting attention on her terms and she especially likes sleeping in the bed with you (under the covers of course) and giving you kisses goodnight. Sometimes she will sit with you while you watch TV or work on the computer, and when she gets excited, she will smile at you! Angel also likes to play with toys and run in the backyard. Because she is afraid of a leash and can jump a 4-foot fence, she will need a backyard with a secure, tall fence. Angel has adjusted well to the 10 dogs and 5 cats in her foster home and, in fact, seems more comfortable when there are other dogs around. However, she is terrified of small children and will run and hide as soon as she sees them. Angel is working to become crate trained and completely house trained and is doing better every day, and she's hoping her new family will spend some time going with her to classes for socialization or obedience so that she can be the very best dog possible. Do you have a patient and loving heart with room for this shy sweetheart? If you do, then you may be Angel's idea of heaven on earth. ========================================================================================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.

|Rescue Me ID: 15-09-28-00090Milo (male)|
Meet 8 year old, blind Milo. Our rescue has stepped up to save this adorable boy from a high kill shelter in Alabama. They're adoption rate is only 10%, so he really had no chance of getting out of there and all the local rescues would not take him. Milo was found as a stray, no one came and reclaimed him. He is deteriorating in the shelter, losing weight, scared. Our foster has a blind dog as well, so we are hoping to get Milos weight right back up. Milo is good with all other dogs, he's playful, very sweet and as you can see handsome! Healthy other than being blind and needing to gain weight back. If you are interested in more information on Milo or to adopt him please fill out application here: https://newloveanimalrescue.wufoo.com/forms/adoption-application/ (Less)

|Rescue Me ID: 15-09-19-00065Angie (female)|
Angie Special needs: Diabetic Breed: Rat Terrier Mix Age: 7 yrs. Sex: Female (Spayed) Weight: 27 lbs Vaccinations: Current Microchip: Yes Angie is one of the sweetest girls you could ever meet. She wonders why she ended up in animal control. The truth is that her previous family abandoned her. They didn't bother treating her diabetes and didn't want to take the time to help her. She is on insulin and doing quite well. Angie is one of those little dogs who gets along with most everything. She is a tad overweight but is on a diet. Our vet thinks that we may be able to reduce her insulin dose when she gets down to an appropriate weight, which is around 19-20 lbs. She is good for her injections and just wants someone to love her. If you are one of those families who can see through her disability and wants to give her the home she deserves, please contact Esther or Jean at 757-472-1583 or 757-404-8069 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.

|Animal ID: 1642Stan Lee (male)|
Stan Lee is a spunky 11-month-old Rattie weighing 15 lbs. Stan has come a long way since he first came into foster care. He has learned manners and how to get along with other dogs, big and small, and how not to be afraid of people, including kids. He is also completely house trained and knows to go to bed in his crate. He loves to go for walks and is ready for any adventure you present him. He can be a big talker, enjoying the sound of his voice, but he's also is a sweet, energetic, athletic dog who will likely excel at agility, fly ball, or lure coursing. He is sometimes shy in new situations (and may bark a bit), but once he understands there is nothing to fear, he returns to his happy-go-lucky self. He has a comical nature, and once he gets to know you, he flips and contorts himself all over the place to get your attention. Stan is very curious about cats and will bark excitedly at the cats in his foster home, but he corrects well when told to stop. More photos of Stan Lee are available at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/stanlee . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Stan Lee, 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.
