|Animal ID: 2046Mighty Mouse (male)|
Mighty Mouse is an adorable Rat Terrier, who weighs 10 lbs. He is around a year old, but is ALL puppy. He loves to play with toys and will throw the ball around for himself if he can't convince you to do it. He is good with other dogs, but his energy annoys the older dogs in his foster home. Cats are fine, but he can and will bark and chase them because that's all in good fun. Mighty Mouse is wary of strangers at first and takes a little time to warm up, but show him you want to play and he'll be your best friend. Mighty Mouse is still working on his house-training. He sometimes forgets he is supposed to go outside, so frequent potty trips will be a must when he first gets into his new home. He walks nicely on a leash and makes a great passenger in the car. He's an all-around fun guy, who would love a home where he gets to play as much as his heart desires.

|Animal ID: 2030 & 2031Gizmo & Stripe (male)|
Hi! We're Gizmo and Stripe, Rattie mix brothers, who are 9 years old and weigh 11 and 12 lbs. respectively. We have never been apart from each other, so we come to you as a package deal. That's right! We need to be adopted together. Our foster parents tell us that we are good boys and no trouble at all. We just want to sit with you and get lots of love, attention, and kisses. We get along with the other dogs and cats in our foster home, but really we'd prefer to be the only two fellas in your life. (More attention for us, you see.) We're fully house-trained and crate trained, but we're so good loose in the house that we don't really need to go in a crate. Nevertheless, we don't mind a crate as long as you give us a treat. We'll sleep there at night if you want, but we would rather sleep in bed with you and help you stay warm and cozy at night. One of us, Gizmo, likes to burrow under the covers, while the other, Stripe, will spend most of the time on top with occasional forays to the warmer regions beneath the sheets. Both of us are very fine leash walkers, but for taking care of business, we like going out in a fenced yard. (We'll come right back just as soon as we're done.) If you think it might be fun to adopt one dog, imagine how great it would be to have BOTH of us distinguished gentlemen in your life. You'll be over the moon, and so will we! ------------------------------------------------------ IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING GIZMO & STRIPE, 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: 2034Max (male)|
Max is a handsome 6-month-old Rat Terrier mix with some traits that suggest he has a Miniature Pinscher or two in his family tree. Weighing just 8 lbs., he's small in size, but he has a huge personality--with a great temperament and lots of energy. Max enjoys chasing a ball and playing with toys (especially the squeaky kind) and with other dogs. He gets along with both the dogs and cats in his foster home and would enjoy having a canine companion in his forever home. Max also likes to be wherever his people are so that he can get plenty of attention. When he is ready to settle down, he wants to be on your lap to get belly rubs and give lots of puppy kisses and snuggles. He will even curl up right on your lap and take a nap. At bedtime, Max prefers to sleep in bed next to his people and has done well going all night with no accidents. If he's not able to get outside, he will use a potty pad if one is available. If you need to leave Max alone for part of the day, he will readily go into a crate if you offer a treat. He has learned that his crate is a good place, not a place for punishment. He's working hard at walking nicely on a leash, but he hopes you have a fenced yard, where he can run and explore to find treasures like leaves and twigs. He also hopes you'll enroll him in a puppy training class so that he can be the awesome little dog he knows he's meant to be. If you're looking for maximum fun in a pint-size pup, Max is your little man! ------------------------------------------------------ IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING MAX, 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: 17-10-23-00562Precious (female)|
Precious came to us from a person in our community. She was surrendered along with her puppies. The owner was not willing to have her spayed and was tired of dealing with pups. Her words NOT mine. I can't make this up. Precious is a rat terrier around 10 pounds. She is great with dogs and other cats. She is somewhat submissive with people but she warms up and is rather sweet with people. She needs someone to love her and bring her the rest the way out of her shell. She spent her whole previous life living outside even in the dead of winter. She deserves a good life. She will go to her new home current on shots and deworming, on heartworm preventive, and microchipped. We require a pre screen application to adopt. You can get that on our main website at www.samskennel.com (Less)

|Rescue Me ID: 17-10-01-00187 (male)|
Rocky was pulled from a shelter where he ended up after surgery from an attack by anither dog. He is good with dogs he knows but can be fearful of stange dogs. He sometimes yelps when pucked up or if his tie out touches the side he was bitten on. I believe it is due to his nerve damage from the attack. I can no longer keep him due to leaving an abusive situation and am basically homeless... Hes a great dog, house briken but must be on a tie out or fenced in yard

|Rescue Me ID: 17-08-01-00367SEBASTIAN (male)|
Meet Sebastian! Sebastian came to us a few months ago with his sister, Stella. They were both very feral. Sebastian LOVES other dogs and would make a great playmate for someone. He's housebroken and crate trained but, as of right now, doesn't like to be petted. He wants to be near his people and will take treats from you but, for now, that's about it. He needs someone that has a fenced in yard that can slowly work with him to trust people. Could that be you? Approximately 3-4 months old. If you are interested in adopting this dog, please go to www.virginiapawsforpits.org and fill out an 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.
