Animal ID: 1856Mikey (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Mikey is an all-around GREAT GUY, the buddy everyone hopes for in a dog. Extremely friendly and good with other dogs, he actually prefers the company of people to that of dogs. He loves children and will shower them with kisses, but because he's only a year old, he can get overeager and may need a gentle reminder to not get too rough. Another puppy tendency is to put things (like arms and legs) in his mouth, but he responds so well to correction that you can see he just wants to understand how to make you happy. Mikey is house-trained and crate trained and a great size at 23 lbs. His long body makes him a little comical in his movements; he ... (Read More)often sits on his hip. He likes to go for walks but doesn't really need lots of exercise, so he could probably enjoy life in a city. With his love of riding in the car, he makes a perfect traveling companion. One thing Mikey's not particularly fond of is cats; he doesn't chase, but he barks at them and makes it clear he's not comfortable with their presence. His foster mom is confident, however, that he could adjust to life with a dog-savvy feline friend if introductions were slow and controlled. Don't you think Mikey would make a great family dog? If you're not thoroughly convinced, just check out his adorable pics at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/mikey . ====================================================================================== If you are interested in adopting Mikey, please go to New Rattitude's web site at http://www.NewRattitude.org/adopt.htm where there is detailed information and a link to our adoption application.

Animal ID: 1845Luke (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Not Good with Cats 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi, my name is Luke! I'm 2 years old and 20 lbs. of handsome. My foster parents rescued my brothers and me from a shelter in Virginia. It was a scary place, so I'm a little shy when I meet new people and may be a little slow to warm up at first. I enjoy being with my foster parents and like to get as much attention as I can. I haven't met any children yet, but if they're patient and give me time to get to know them, they might be fun to play with. At night I sleep in the crate with the door open or in bed with my foster parents when they invite me. I love playing with the other foster dogs; we have a good time romping outside in the fenced ... (Read More)backyard. I like being outside, especially going around the perimeter of my foster parents' yard just to make sure there are no strange animals there that weren't invited. I'd love to have my own backyard. I have to let you know, however, that I'm not fond of cats. I like to chase and bark at them. I'm crate trained, but you can trust leaving me out of a crate, too, because I'm house-trained. Also, I'm adjusting to walking on a leash. I'm hoping that my special family is willing to give me time to adjust to them because if they've got patience (and--ahem--a fenced backyard and no cats), then we've got some great times ahead of us. In the meantime, my future family, your future faithful friend, Luke, will sit and stay right here, waiting for you. ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Luke, 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: 1834Nina (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Nina, the 11-lb. 6-year-old sweetie of tender heart and spunky spirit. It's hard to believe that not long ago, Nina found herself in a North Carolina animal shelter, battling a nasty bout of kennel cough, along with several skin ailments caused by her allergies to flea bites. Now in a New Rattitude foster home, she's been able to focus on making a wonderful recovery, and her personality has emerged, along with a beautiful new coat of fur! Nina is well-behaved and gets along great with her two canine foster brothers, as well as several dogs who've come over to visit. It may take her a while to warm up to new people, but with slow ... (Read More)introductions at her pace, she has done well with all the humans she's met too. Nina is house trained and knows how to use the dog door. She may dribble some pee when her foster mom or dad arrives home from work, but she's working to overcome that tendency. Nina's favorite activity is walking or jogging with her foster mom, but she is almost as happy just napping in the kitchen on her dog bed, chewing on a bully stick, sitting on Foster Dad's lap to give him kisses, or chasing squirrels at full tilt in the backyard. More than anything, Nina is looking for someone to share in her joy and enthusiasm for living life and receiving love, and she's hoping that someone is YOU! Check out her online photo album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/nina . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Nina, please go to New Rattitude's web site at http://www.NewRattitude.org/adopt.htm where there is detailed information and a link to our adoption application.

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered 

    Ziggy is a 7 year old Jack Russel/ Rat Terrier hybrid. He is very sweet and submissive with all people and greets them with wagging his whole body and embracing attention. He is extra sweet with women and loves to snuggle up on the couch. With our other dogs he is good but has that Jack Russel little dog syndrome and demands respect. He is vocal at times usually when he wants to go out or sees a squirrel through the back window as seen in the picture. We are looking for new home that better suits his needs as we do not feel we have been giving him adaquete time and exercise due to schedules and life. We are asking $50 for an adoption fee and ...

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.
