Rescue Me ID: 14-07-21-00410Skip (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult


    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.

Animal ID: 1441Jesse (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Most Cats 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Jesse is a handsome 8-month-old Rat Terrier/Chihuahua mix, who is eager to please. Found as a stray and taken to a high-kill shelter in Georgia, he was about to be euthanized when New Rattitude stepped in and rescued him and his sister, Sissy. Jesse has adapted to his foster home quickly, and he enjoys being around people. He will sit with you while you watch TV or just relax, and you will hardly know he is there because he weighs just 10 lbs. Jesse is fond of sleeping in the bed with his people. Sometimes it is under the covers and sometimes on top of the covers; he is not picky. Not a fan of the leash, Jesse would prefer a fenced-in yard ... (Read More)as he loves to run around outdoors and play. He is currently working on leash training, crate training, and house training and is doing well in all areas. There is no need to keep him in a crate because he is good being loose in the house as long as there's a potty pad 'just in case.' Jesse gets along with the other dogs and cats in his foster home and would do well as an only dog or with a canine brother or sister since he is used to having a playmate. ========================================================================================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.

Animal ID: 1440Sissy (female)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Most Cats 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Sissy is a 13-lb. Rat Terrier/Chihuahua mix, who is just 8 months old. She and her brother Jesse were found as strays, taken to a high-kill shelter in Georgia, and were about to be euthanized when New Rattitude stepped in and rescued them. While Sissy can be slow to warm up to new people and is quicker to trust women than men, this shy pup loves to sit with her people when they watch TV and snuggles right up to her foster dad in bed. Sissy would do best with a fenced-in yard as she loves to run around and play and is not fond of a leash. She is currently working on leash training, crate training, and house training and is doing well in all ... (Read More)areas. There is no need to keep her in a crate because she is good loose in the house as long as she has a potty pad for 'just in case.' Sissy gets along with the other dogs and cats in her foster home. She would do well either as an only dog or with a canine brother or sister as a playmate. A patient, loving home will help this sweetheart overcome her trust issues. ========================================================================================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.

Animal ID: 1439Bella (female)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Most Cats 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Bella, a 5-year-old, 18-lb. Rat Terrier/Fox Terrier mix, is a settled, affectionate girl, who can often be found curled on a bed or couch napping, not far from her foster family. She is completely house trained and will go to the door to tell you she needs to go out. Bella is friendly with other dogs-large and small- and lives with two Rat Terriers and four German Shepherds in her foster home. She has shown no interest in the two cats who live there. Bella's foster family includes teenagers, and she enjoys snuggling on the couch with them. She has met preschool children and is afraid of them, so Bella's foster mom does not feel she would be ... (Read More)comfortable in a home with preschool children. Bella does not like thunderstorms or loud noises but seems to do fine if put in her crate in a quiet room. She walks well on a leash and is always ready for a ride in the car. She doesn't like to be outside without her people and can be quite determined in her efforts to escape from a fence, just to be with the ones she loves! You can see more pictures of this lovely and loving lady in her on-line photo album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/bella . ========================================================================================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.

Rescue Me ID: 14-07-08-00351Lazarus (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adult Women Only 
Personality: High Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected,
 Fearful/Anxious 

    Just look at those eyes! Lazarus has had to overcome so many traumas only to be faced with being homeless or worse yet having to go back to a high kill shelter! Lazarus was hit by a truck in January and almost didn't make it ! But after recovering it became apparent that this babe has had to endure a lot more than that! He does well with women which leads us to believe that he's been abused by a man but that doesn't mean he can't learn to live with one! He does in fact get along quite well with his foster moms family however foster mom has a patient who has a mental disadvantage which makes Lazarus fearful and aggressive so that type of ... (Read More)environment is not recommended . I think this boy needs a forever home with lots of love but no kitties ! We only have 2 weeks to find him a place or he will be returned to the high kill shelter as we do not have a physical building to house these animals .so please make room in your heart for this bot who has already suffered so much!

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    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 ... (Read More)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.
