|Animal ID: A23643507Lori (female)|
Who can say no to that face? Little Lori is a one family kinda gal. She bonds closely with those she loves and will bark to keep the others at bay. She is looking for a calm, quiet home where she doesn't have to be on guard all the time. She would be best suited for a home with adults only, as she doesn't like a lot of visitors in her home.

|Animal ID: 1490Max (male)|
Max is what you could call the maximum dog in the minimum package. This 5-year-old Rat Terrier is energetic and playful, and after he gets over his initial shyness and warms up to you (he takes a bit longer with men), he's affectionate and loyal and will be your very best friend, especially if you play ball with him. Max is also a cuddly lap warmer, a TV-watching couch potato, and a snuggling bed buddy, and with his good leash manners, he makes a great companion for long walks, yet he manages to get all these excellent doggie characteristics into just 12.4 lbs. With so much awesomeness concentrated into such a handsomely small fellow, Max is certain that he alone is enough to satisfy all your pet parenting needs. Although in his foster home he lives with other dogs and some cats, which he loves to chase, he really just wants to be wherever his people are and wants them all to himself. As a devotee of fetch, Max would love a fenced yard where he could run and play with the ball, and he'd probably welcome the additional attention he could get from a family with older children, who could play with him, but he has not been tested with small children. Max is fully house trained and does well in a crate or free in the home. When you've decided that a Rat Terrier is the dog for you, Max is hoping that you will remember his name, MAX--sweet, powerful, and not too big--just like he is! ========================================================================================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: 14-10-28-00565Loretta (female)|
Loretta is an adorable little lady who is about 2 years old. She is great with other dogs and seems to like everyone she meets. She loves hanging out at her foster home with kids, dogs and people. With ears like that who could resist. $175.00 adoption donation helps us take care of all the dogs we rescue. All dogs are spayed/neutered, tested for heartworm and tick borne diseases, microchipped and vaccinated for rabies, distemper/parvo and bordetella. They are also treated for internal and external parasites if needed. Many dogs also receive extensive medical care such as surgeries and dentals.

|Animal ID: 1495Molly (female)|
Molly is a beautiful blue Rat Terrier. She is about 2 years old and a tiny girl at 8 lbs., but don't let her size fool you. She is full of energy and ready to go, go, go. Molly loves to play fetch and play with the other dogs in her foster home. She does fine with cats as long as they are dog savvy and don't run from her. Fearful kitties that run, on the other hand, are great fun to chase. Molly has not spent much time around kids, but the few that she has met have made her very happy and wiggly. In fact, she seems to really love everyone. She does well on a leash and is still mastering the art of house training but is doing well if kept on a schedule. Molly is not fond of being left alone and would love to have a family who won't leave her for long periods of time. If you want a fun, energetic, athletic girl, then mini Molly makes a marvelous match! You can check out more cute pics in her online album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/molly . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Molly, 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: 1315Wyatt (male)|
Hi, I'm Wyatt and I am SO hoping to find my forever home! You see, I was found as a stray and even though I can't remember how it all happened, I do remember that it was no fun! I'm only about 2 years old and 25 lbs., so I've got tons of energy and I just love to play ball. My foster parents took me to the beach this year, and I discovered that you can even play ball in the ocean!! I am a little shy at first and sometimes have trouble meeting new doggie friends, but if you're patient and take things slow while I get to know them, we'll probably do just fine. I've learned to get along with the other dogs and cats in my foster home. Sometimes the other dogs and I go outside to play ball. Did I mention that I love to play ball? There's even a new foster dog here now and we've become friends, but my foster parents still believe that I would do best as the only dog in your home because making new doggie friends can be really hard work. They wanted me to say that I 'could benefit from continued obedience training to help with socialization.' There! I said it. Although I might not know what those big words mean, I do know these things about me: I am fully house trained, and I do well either in a crate or free in the home. Also, I am a good walker on a leash, but I'd really love a yard with a fence, too, where I could run and play. And finally, I am very loyal and enjoy being wherever my foster parents are, including their bed. If you've ever been alone on the streets like me, then you know how wonderful it is to snuggle up to a person. It's a feeling that I wish could go on forever, and that's why I'm here, looking for a human or two--somebody like you--with a strong arm for throwing a ball and a soft heart looking to love a faithful boy like me. ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Wyatt, 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: 1468Dante (male)|
Handsome Dante, an 11-lb. short-legged Rattie, is 8 years old, but don't let his age fool you. Full of spunk and energy, this fellow is extremely fast and loves to chase things, including chickens, squirrels, rabbits, birds, and cats. In fact, he would probably make a good barn ratter or an excellent candidate for agility or lure coursing. His strong prey drive also means that he should live in a home with a good fence. He can be in a house with cats that are dog-savvy, as long as his new owners teach him boundaries. Dante gets along with other small dogs, but his energy and attitude are not well tolerated by some of the big guys in his foster home. Tolerant large dogs would be okay, as long as they were never left alone together for a long time. Dante LOVES toys and will shred a stuffed toy within minutes. He adores chasing balls and playing tug of war. This comical fellow enjoys the company of people and loves to snuggle with them in bed or on the couch in the evening. His playful antics entertain his foster family on a regular basis, and he would love to entertain your family, too. Dante has learned to behave around children who understand dogs, and now knows that little ones often come with yummy treats in hand. With the right oversight, Dante will do fine in a home with children who are old enough to know to behave appropriately with dogs (older than preschool age). And he is proud to say that he is house trained and will let you know when he needs to go out. You can catch more pictures of dashing and devoted Dante at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/dante. =======================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Dante, 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: 1453Henley (male)|
Henley had a rough start to his young life. Removed from a hoarding situation, this 1.5- to 2-year-old was very, very fearful when he first came into rescue. It took him a few weeks to relax and realize that people and other dogs were good, after all. Now that he knows he is safe, he loves to sit on his person's lap and to be petted--all 9 lbs. of him! He also loves toys, snuggling under the covers at night, and wrestling and playing chase with the small, young dogs in his foster home. He is working on leash training but is still quite fearful of the leash and new situations, so a securely-fenced yard will be necessary in his adoptive home.He does great using a potty pad and is getting better about doing his business outdoors if he's kept on a schedule and his people are outside with him. Henley has not been around kids, and because he is still overcoming his fearful past, he would probably do best without the unpredictability of young children around. As for cats, although he first wanted to chase them, he pretty much leaves them alone now after a quick reminder that 'cats are our friends.' The patient family who adopts Henley and continues to work on his socialization skills will get in return a great little dog with lots of love to give. Check out more of handsome Henley's pictures at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/henley . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Henley, 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: 14-07-21-00410Skip (male)|
May 8, 2013. Skip was on the kill list for that date. Instead he came east. Now he's a Houlagan. This boy hasn't barked inside, chewed or displayed anything than a playful, impish look. He has a nice energy. Look for Skip at upcoming adoption stands.

|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)

|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.
