Animal ID: 1786Jasmine (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

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

    Jasmine, 5 years old and weighing 19 lbs., is what you could call a 'turnkey' dog--totally ready just as she is to bring joy and companionship to her adopter. She is completely house trained and crate trained, though she prefers to sleep on a small dog bed to being in a crate. She also knows how to sit, lie down, stay, and roll over. She walks well on a leash and loves to ride in the car, quietly settling down as soon as you start the engine. Jasmine is fostered with many other dogs, both large and small, and pays them no mind. She has met lots of people and liked them all. Jasmine also LOVES the wading pool in her foster home and can be ... (Read More)often found rolling around in the water, snuffling and splashing. Her only vice? A strong dislike of cats. If you have a cat-free home and are looking for a fantastic canine companion, Jasmine could be your girl. See more photos of this delightful doggy at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/jasmine . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Jasmine, 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.

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

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

    Jackson, a 6-year-old spunky Rattie weighing about 15 lbs., loves playtime almost as much as he loves snuggle time. Jackson is fully house trained and gets along great with the other three dogs in the house. He loves to play fetch with them and will even get into a friendly game of tug-of-war. Although there are no children living in his foster home, there have been young visitors, and he gets along great with them as well. Jackson would be the perfect addition to any family looking for a great companion. You can find more pictures of him in his online album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/jackson . ...

Animal ID: 1781Precious (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Precious found herself in a shelter when her elderly owner could no longer take care of her. She is a very friendly girl, but this 3-year-old really needs to shed some of her 21 lbs. Her foster home has her on the path to a sleeker figure with a healthful diet and exercise program. Precious just loves people! Favorite pastime? Snuggling with her person on the couch! She does fine with other dogs, too, but she doesn't seek out or seem to need their company. Precious is crate trained and leash trained and has recently gotten a refresher on her house training. She is a lovely girl, who is waiting for her forever home. More photos of Precious ...

Animal ID: 1769Rizzo (female)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Hi, my name is Rizzo, and I'm a Rat Terrier/Jack Russell Terrier mix. I'm 11 months old and was found as a stray and put into a shelter until New Rattitude came in and rescued me. I'm an active, playful, and fast learner. I enjoy squeaky toys and being wherever my foster parents are, especially sleeping in bed under the covers with them at night. They call me a little snuggle bug. I get along with all the dogs and cats in my foster home, but I sometimes have to let the other dogs know who is boss of the house. I like to go outside and play chase or run around the yard with my canine foster brothers and sisters. I run fast for a girl of 13 ... (Read More)lbs. I'm not fond of being in a crate, but I can be convinced into staying there with a treat. I'm doing very well with house training and my foster parents are teaching me to walk on a leash. I'm not fond of a leash, so I'm hoping you'll have a yard with a fence where I can run and play free as the wind. Now that you know about me, I'd like to know about you. After all, I'm sure you've been looking for a playful girl like me, right? Send in that application! I'll be waiting. Love, Rizzo. ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Rizzo, 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: 1756Prince (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

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

    Handsome Prince, who had been a stray in a Georgia kill shelter, was quite pitiful when he first came into rescue as he had a ruptured eardrum that caused extreme pain and prevented him from eating. Now after some TLC from New Rattitude, he has become one prince of a Rattie. Obedient and well-mannered, Prince is 100-percent house trained and trained not to jump on furniture. He also knows all sorts of tricks and commands. About 2 to 3 years old and 24 lbs., Prince happily plays with his canine foster sisters and loves to bark at squirrels, deer, and birds. Prince's eardrum has been healing nicely, and he is able to eat normally with a ... (Read More)healthy appetite. He is working on leash manners, especially when it comes to approaching dogs who bark at him. Overall, Prince is a sweet, gentle boy, who loves a morning and evening walk but also loves snoozing quietly at your feet. Prince invites you to see more pictures of his handsome self at http://ImageEvent.com/newrattitude/prince . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Prince, 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: 16-05-19-00279Ziggy (male)

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 ...

Animal ID: 1735Rocky (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Young Adult

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

    Hi, my name is Rocky! I'm a little boy, who's 8 months old and 16 lbs. of handsome. My foster parents tell me that New Rattitude rescued my sister and me from some place called a shelter in Louisiana. 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 they might be fun to play with. The dogs in my foster home are great fun, and we have a good time outside playing in the backyard. However, I have to let you know that I am not very fond of cats. I like to chase them, so living with a cat may not be a good idea. I am working on crate training, house training, and leash walking. ... (Read More)Foster mom tells me I'm doing well, but I 'still need some work.' I enjoy being wherever my people are, and I like to sleep in bed with them at night. They say I'm just a little snuggle bug. Doesn't that sound like something that you might like? Great! Apply for me. I'll be waiting for you. ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Rocky, 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: 1739Whiskey (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Most Cats 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi, my name is Whiskey, and I'm a handsome 12-year-old 30-lb. Rat Terrier. I'm hoping you might like to welcome into your home a fine gentleman from Louisiana, now residing in Virginia (er...that gentleman would be me). I bring with me a long list of the most excellent qualities. I know how to do some tricks for treats. I know sit and I can give you my paw. I'm fully house trained and will do well staying in a crate or being free in your home when you need to go out. I'm a laid-back fellow, who likes to play too, and I walk nicely on a leash, but I'd also appreciate a fenced yard where I could explore on my own. I get along with all the ... (Read More)other dogs and cats in my foster home, but to be honest, I'm hoping I'll be the only dog in your life 'cause I just love getting all the attention. Most of all, I'm a loyal boy, who will be happy just to be with you (especially if that involves snuggling under the covers). More and more I'm thinking, 'You and me--we were meant to be.' I'm so hoping you'll agree! ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Whiskey, 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: 1693Winnie (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Cats, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi, my name is Winnie, and I'm 12 lbs. and 9 years of feisty personality, but please don't think of me as a crusty old lady (though I can have my moments). With the long lifespan enjoyed by Rat Terriers, you could hardly consider me old, and instead of crusty, I prefer to compare myself to the best French bread--a bit crunchy on the outside, but soft and yummy on the inside. It's true that I don't like kids and big dogs, but I enjoy dogs my own size and even some cats! In fact, one of my best friends is a cat. We sit and sun ourselves together. I also don't appreciate summer storms and getting my picture taken. Either one will send me ... (Read More)skedaddling for cover. Also, Foster Mom says I can be snarky towards some folks--but hey, if you are not pushy but are patient and gentle instead, I'm sure to show you my soft side and you're gonna love it! For example, I do a little dance when I'm happy, and if you mention taking a ride to the ice cream store, I'll be hopping and wiggling for joy on the way to the door! I am house trained and crate trained, and I walk nicely on a leash. Foster mom says that I'm really quite undemanding. All I need is a quiet home where I can snuggle on the couch and a person with a golden heart to give me a chance. I'm hoping YOU might be that person. To help you decide, I did allow a few more photo ops, and you can see them at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/winnie . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Winnie,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.
