|Animal ID: 1882Tot (male)|
Handsome, energetic, playful, friendly, and cuddly--he's the complete package. He's Tot, a Rat Terrier mix (with maybe a touch of Jack Russell?) who's quite literally a tot at just 3 1/2 months and 8 lbs. Tot loves to play, play, play. Whether he's chasing his canine foster siblings, exploring the backyard, flinging about the leaves and twigs (and occasionally bringing one indoors as a trophy), or frolicking with his toys, this little pup is all about fun. Tot also specializes in snuggles. He loves to get belly rubs and give lots of puppy kisses. If you're not giving him the attention he thinks he deserves, he will let you know and will give you a kiss of approval when he decides you've done well. This friendly fella also gets along with all the dogs and cats in his foster home. Tot is doing very well with potty training, and when he is not able to get outside, he will use a potty pad. He is learning to walk on a leash, but he seems most happy running and playing in a fenced-in yard. At bedtime, he can usually be found curled up in the bed with his foster mom and dad. Doesn't he sound like a terrific companion and great all-around dog? We hope you have a spot for Tot. ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Princess, 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: 1881Tater (male)|
He's only 3 1/2 months old, but Tater already knows it's important to have balance in one's life. He's the perfect mix of easy-going and energetic. A Rat Terrier mix (possibly with some Jack Russell DNA tossed in) currently weighing 8 lbs., Tater likes to be around people. He especially enjoys snuggling on your lap for belly rubs and giving kisses in return. However, he's much more than just a couch tater; he enjoys playing chase with his siblings, exploring the backyard, and playing with leaves, twigs, and toys, especially squeaky ones. He lives with many other dogs and cats in his foster home, and he gets along with all. Tater is doing well with potty training, and when he is not able to get outside, he will use a potty pad. He is learning to walk on a leash but prefers a fenced-in yard where he can run and play off leash and bask in the sun. Tater is not crate trained because he prefers to snuggle in bed with his people. Ever so eager to show you his secrets for a perfectly balanced life, Tater suggests that you don't delay and apply today! ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Tater, 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.

|Animal ID: 1887Lilo (female)|
Lilo is an energetic, friendly 1-year old Rat Terrier/Chihuahua mix. She loves to run and play and will try to engage her canine foster siblings in play as much as possible. She is good with cats and the other dogs she meets, though big dogs may sometimes frighten her and cause her to bark. Once she understands that their intentions are friendly, she's fine with them. She also loves children and enjoys being petted and brushed by them. Lilo is fully house-trained and crate trained, and she walks nicely on a leash. Weighing just 13 lbs., she is quite agile and will jump onto the back of the couch to look over your shoulder. Once you see all of Lilo's sweet, pretty poses in her online album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/lilo , you'll love the idea of having a best friend who can sit on your shoulder! ======================================================================================== If you are interested in adopting Lilo, 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: 1870Riddick (male)|
Riddick is a gentleman of 7 years with the heart of a youngster. At a solid 15 lbs., he looks like he could run for days on those gorgeous long legs. Riddick is exceptionally friendly to people, giving kisses nonstop if you let him, and he has been well-behaved with the children who've visited his foster home. He likes other dogs his size but can be confrontational with bigger dogs, especially if they are on the other side of a cate or fence. Thankfully the German Shepherds in his foster home are tolerant of little dog feistiness. A large dog who doesn't understand it, however, could react, and this could result in disaster for Riddick. Cats tend to bring out his prey drive and he chases them, so a home with cats is not a good choice for him. Riddick enjoys riding in the car and is crate trained, house-trained, and good on leash. Check out more photos of this dashing fellow at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/riddick . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Riddick, 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: 1864Scout (male)|
Scout is so handsome and energetic that some folks would be amazed to learn that he's 12, but anyone familiar with the long and healthy lifespan of the typical Rat Terrier wouldn't be at all surprised. This 15-lb. fella loves attention and loves to play. He gets along great with the smaller dogs at his foster home. Most of the time, Scout lets his foster parents know when he needs to go outside, but he's still working to reach mastery level in house-training. Scout is in his prime, and from the looks of his photos, he knows it! Check out all of the pics in his photo album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/scout , and you'll see what we mean. ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Scout, please go to New Rattitude's web site at http://www.NewRattitude.org/adopt.htm where there is detailed information and a link to our adoption application.

|Rescue Me ID: 16-12-30-00421Odin (male)|
Odin is great dog. I love him so much and it hurts to have to do this. I just want someone to foster him while I get on my feet. Like 3-6 months, so I do want him back. The fee I ask will be given back to you when I get him back. He loves to be outside. He isn't too big on toys but he loves to chase balls around.

|Animal ID: 1734Adrienne (female)|
Adrienne is a 1-year-old Rat Terrier mix, who is special in many ways. She's especially sweet, and she has those special warm eyes that will melt your heart. She also has some physical needs that will require a special kind of home--one that's filled with patience, love, and understanding. You see, Adrienne was born with a spinal disorder and needs daily over-the-counter medication. She would thrive in a home where someone is with her all or most of the time to give her the attention that she seems to love so much. She also needs her people to know how to handle her carefully so as not to hurt her. Any children would need to be old enough and well-behaved enough to respect her physical limitations and avoid any roughhousing or chasing. She would love to have gentle doggy companionship, but she requests no cats please because, in her opinion, they just beg to be chased. A fenced yard is needed to enable her to have plenty of outdoor time where she can roam and play at her own pace because taking long leash walks can tire her quickly. A bit shy at first, Adrienne will warm up quickly and want to shower you with kisses at bedtime. If she's allowed in your bed, she'll snuggle right up to you and might even try to share your pillow. (Since she's a tiny girl at just 10 lbs., she doesn't think you'll mind.) Adrienne is house-trained but does have an occasional accident due to her disability. She's also leash trained and crate trained, readily going into her crate when prompted, especially if a treat is involved. If you're the kind of person whose heart swells when a dog's eyes say thank you, then you probably have a spot on your bed that's reserved for a special girl like Adrienne. ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Adrienne, 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.
