|Animal ID: 1943Angus (male)|
Meet Angus, a wee 1-year-old lad weighing 13 lbs. He is a friendly, spunky guy, who is equally happy taking a long walk, chasing a ball, or napping on a soft blanket. Angus is fully house-trained, and he has not had one single accident in his foster home. He gets along well with pretty much any dog he's met, and he loves his humans, including the new ones who come to visit his house. Like many terriers, Angus does bark at exciting things outside, like the mailman, kids getting off the school bus, or someone riding a skateboard. But on a leash, he pays no attention to anything except moving forward on his walk (or run). Angus has an endearing habit of presenting a welcome 'gift' to anyone who comes in the front door, usually a squeaky toy or possibly a flip-flop that might be handy (he doesn't chew on the flip-flops). His ability to spring from a sitting position suggests some Jack Russell Terrier in his lineage, while his short legs and sturdy neck hint at a bit of Corgi. But there is no question that whoever his ancestors were, they gave this handsome Rattie mix a great disposition. Angus is an all-around delightful dog, who would love to have a family to call his own-one that will take him on walks and shower him with love and snuggles. For more photos and a video clip of Angus in action, take a peek at his online album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/angus , and be prepared to fall in love. ------------------------------------------------------ IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING ANGUS, 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: 1910Gia (female)|
Gia came to New Rattitude with four tiny babies in tow. This little mama did an excellent job of caring for and then weaning all her pups, so now she's ready to be someone's baby herself. In addition to being an awesome parent, Gia has spent her 7 years developing the personality and behaviors needed to become the PERFECT dog. Sweet through and through, she loves children and will lap up all the attention they care to give, smiling the whole time. Her foster mom's granddaughters can't get enough of her! Gia's foster family has small and big dogs, and while she'll bark at the big dogs through the fence, she behaves appropriately with them in the house. With little dogs, she's absolutely fine. While she's a bit leery of cats, she doesn't bark or chase them; she just follows and sniffs curiously. Gia is crate trained and fully house-trained, having had no accidents in the house. She learned how to use a dog door quickly but still sometimes needs a little encouragement to push the flap. The good news is that she goes to the door and looks at you when she needs to go out. Gia also walks well on leash, rides quietly in the car, and even sits in her foster mom's lap to have her nails trimmed with no fuss at all. (She's such a lady that she stood perfectly still and didn't object to getting a bath.) With one ear up and the other ear down, Gia is 12 lbs. of adorable. After you see the rest of her photos in her online album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/gia, we're sure you'll want to bring this baby home. ------------------------------------------------------ IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING GIA, 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: 1878Fetch (male)|
My name is Fetch. I'm an 8-year-old 20-lb. Rat Terrier and quite handsome, don't you think? I used to be sick with heart worms, and I was put in a shelter. After New Rattitude rescued me, my foster family took me to the vet, who gave me medicine to get rid of the heart worms. Today I'm all better, and I feel just as good as I look. I'm super ready for you to adopt me--that is, if you're a woman. I have to tell you, men scare me. But if you are a human of the female persuasion, you and I could have a wonderful life together. After I get to know you, I'll be your most loyal companion. I'm laid-back, but I like to play. I'll love being wherever you are, and that includes snuggling in bed with you. I'd also love having you home with me all day, because you will be the center of my world. I live with other dogs and cats in my foster home. I get along with the dogs, but I'm not fond of cats and I'll chase them. I think I'd prefer to be the only dog in your home because I like getting all the attention, but if you have other dogs, I can share you. I'm fully house-trained and do well in a crate or loose inside when you need to go out. I walk nicely on a leash, but I also love exploring in a fenced yard. With that long list of most fetching qualities, I think I'm your guy. I do hope you agree! I can't wait to meet you! Love, Fetch. ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Fetch, 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: 1852Ruby (female)|
Ruby, a 2-year-old 12-lb. Rat Terrier mix, is a sweet and loving dog. She likes to play with toys and run around outdoors in a fenced backyard with an occasional time-out for sunbathing. You couldn't exactly call Ruby happy-go-lucky, though. She's extremely cautious and slow to warm up to new people, but if you're patient and give her time to get to know you, you'll be richly rewarded. Once she trusts you, she'll love you to the core and want nothing more than to please you. You will also have gained a very loyal bed partner since Ruby especially enjoys sleeping with her people (under the covers, of course). Ruby gets along with the other dogs and cats in her foster home, and in fact, having an easy-going dog in the home might help her feel more confident. Any children would need to be old enough to be understanding and empathetic because a child who would run up to her or chase her would cause her to run and hide. Ruby is house-trained and leash trained. The adopter who gives Ruby patience and a supportive, nurturing environment will find that she's truly a gem! ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Ruby, 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.
