|Rescue Me ID: 14-04-11-00253Beanie (male)|
Beanie is an adorable and feisty little guy who is about 2 years old. His smile is so sweet and winning. This cutie has more energy than a Mexican jumping bean and loves to play. Beanie gets along with other dogs. We are not sure how much obedience training he has had. But he is young and smart, so he should learn his lessons quickly. Since he is a very adept escape artist, Beanie must go to a home where he is not left unsupervised in a fenced yard or tied/chained up. His ideal home will be with someone who will provide him with daily vigorous exercise and/or playtime. Won't you make his dream of becoming the best friend of someone special come true? Beanie will repay you with cuddles, kisses, and lots of love! Please apply to adopt Beanie today. (Less)

|Animal ID: 1349Coco (female)|
Hi! I am a cute spunky chocolate Rat Terrier gal named Coco. I turned 4 years old in February, and boy do I ever love to play. I really enjoy young dogs as they like to play like me. I was used as a breeding momma prior to rescue and still really enjoy puppies. I am very patient with younger dogs. I do like smaller dogs as I weigh only about 6 lbs. I am a bit scared of new places still but once I am comfortable, I am a loving little dog. Men do scare me as they are much bigger than me, but treats sure help me adjust. I am working on my potty training and do well with a potty pad and I am doing well going outside as long I am kept on a schedule. It's a good thing I am small and can be carried because I am not a huge fan of a leash yet but I am working on it. I think if my new family works with me I will learn to do well. As for kids, I have never really been around them but I think they might scare me since I came from a less than stellar background. Even though most cats are bigger than me, I will still chase them if they run, but if they just stand still I like them okay. I will be available for adoption the first week of May as I am currently undergoing heartworm treatment, but don't delay in applying for me if you want a small spunky Rat Terrier who still is a bit of a work in progress! Check out some cute pictures of me at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/coco. ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Coco, 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: 1381Mr. Fox (male)|
Mr. Fox is 5 years old and weighs around 14 lbs. He came to rescue after being abandoned in a house for over a year. Mr. Fox did not know how to be a happy dog when he first came to foster care, but he remembered in no time. He needed a refresher on house training, and still needs to be watched, but he is learning quickly. He walks well on a leash and enjoys riding in the car. Mr. Fox loves to snuggle and give kisses. His favorite spot is curled up on his foster mom's bed. He also loves to play with toys and chase balls of all shapes and sizes, including soccer balls. He has several foster siblings: four German Shepherds, two Rat Terriers, and two cats. He gets along fine with all of his them, unless they try to take his toys. Mr. Fox likes people and has done fine with the young children he has met. But because his year in isolation left him a tad jumpy and nervous around the squeals and fast movement of young children, he is better off not living with young children. Please check out more photos of Mr. Fox at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/mrfox. ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Mr. Fox, 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: 1342Monroe (male)|
Monroe is a handsome 16-week old puppy who can be very playful but also has a calm side. This 9-lb. fellow has a great temperament and personality. He enjoys playing with his toys, especially small tennis balls. Once play time is over, Monroe enjoys snuggling with you and giving lots of puppy kisses. He also enjoys lap time while watching TV. Monroe is definitely a people dog; he enjoys being wherever you are. He loves to sleep in the bed with you and will snuggle real close to go to sleep. Monroe can be shy when he first meets people, but will warm up quickly. He does well around the other dogs and cats in his foster home, especially enjoying playing chase with the cats. Monroe would benefit from puppy obedience class, which would continue to help with socialization skills. He is currently learning to walk on a leash and he continues to work on potty training and he is doing very well. ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Monroe, 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: 1274Skippy (male)|
Skippy may not do much skipping anymore, at 15 years old, but he is still alert and spunky and happily enjoys live. He has a good temperament and personality, and is wonderfully huggable and affectionate. You may even get a kiss now and then! Skippy has an easy-going nature and he gets along well with the other dogs and cats in his foster home even though he'd probably prefer to be an only dog, but he would be all right with having a brother or sister. He is house trained, walks well on leash, and enjoys sleeping in the bed with his people--but sometimes likes his own bed as well. He has no problem being in a crate, but there is no need for that because he is so well behaved. If you'd like a little low-maintenance, laid-back, huggable bundle of affection in your home, please adopt Skippy. ================================================================================================If you are interested in adopting this dog, 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.
