|Animal ID: 1834Nina (female)|
Meet Nina, the 11-lb. 6-year-old sweetie of tender heart, gentle spirit, and calm demeanor. It's hard to believe that not long ago, Nina found herself in a North Carolina animal shelter, battling a nasty bout of kennel cough, along with several skin ailments caused by her allergies to flea bites. Now in a New Rattitude foster home, she's been able to focus on making a wonderful recovery, and her personality has emerged, along with a beautiful new coat of fur! Nina is well-behaved and gets along great with her two canine foster brothers, as well as several dogs who've come over to visit. It may take her a while to warm up to new people, but with slow introductions at her pace, she has done well with all the humans she's met too. Her favorite 'activity' is snoozing on her soft dog bed near the kitchen, and she is perfectly content to lie there quietly all day. Nina is house trained and knows how to use the dog door. She may dribble some pee when her foster mom or dad arrives home from work, but she's working to overcome that tendency. Nina has bowed back legs, but that doesn't seem to get in the way of her walking, running, and jumping. She has good energy and LOVES her morning and evening walks. More than anything, Nina is looking for someone to share in her joy and enthusiasm for living life and receiving love, and she's hoping that someone is YOU! Checking out her online photo album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/nina will help seal the deal. ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Nina, 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.

|Animal ID: 1825Sally (female)|
Sally is a 9-lb. bundle of spunk and energy. Just 2 years old, Sally has a VERY high prey drive and springs for legs. With her ability to bounce 5 to 6 feet into the air, she would make an amazing agility dog. Sally loves people and dogs her size, but in typical small-dog fashion, she wants to fight big dogs and cats. She cannot go to a home with cats, as she gets overly stimulated by their presence and attacked one in her foster home. In a home without cats or big dogs to annoy, Sally will be a source of happiness and entertainment. She is completely house-trained and knows how to use a dog door to go outside. She loves sleeping in a clam-shell bed or basket and will readily wrap herself around your neck if you pick her up. More photos of Sally are in her online album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/sally and she stars in an adorable video that you can see at https://youtu.be/O3LssLdxA48 . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Sally, 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.

|Animal ID: 1782Kimchi (female)|
Kimchi was rescued from a rural South Carolina shelter after being hit by a car, so it's not too surprising that this 3-year-old didn't want to be touched and would hide when she first came into rescue. Soon thereafter, it was discovered that she had heart worms, and during her months of treatment, her foster mom worked to gently desensitize her to being touched and to accept affection. Today Kimchi is completely healthy and ready for her forever home. While she's still a little nervous and not immediately comfortable with affection, she's coming around nicely. In fact, she has recently felt comfortable enough to start wagging her tail. And an adorable wagging tail it is-going up and down, rather than side to side, and with a little kink in it (the likely result of her encounter with the car). She has also progressed to the point where if you have treats, she'll come to you, take the treats, lick your hand, and stand in your lap. In just a little time, she'll be a loyal pet to you if you're patient and continue working with her. She likes to sit on the couch and soon will most likely become an awesome bed snuggler. Kimchi is a well-mannered young lady, who's crate trained and house trained and who walks nicely on a leash. She's good with other dogs, big and small, and doesn't seem to care about cats one way or the other. Children, on the other hand, confuse her and might have a hard time being gentle with their hands, so she should not be around young kids, especially while she's still learning to be comfortable with being touched. While Kimchi was on rest throughout her heart worm treatment, she put on a little weight. Currently 16 lbs., she'll most likely shed a pound or two now that she has full exercise privileges. You can see more photos of Kimchi in her online photo album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/kimchi . (Less)

|Rescue Me ID: 16-05-19-00279Ziggy (male)|
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 are looking only for a serious owner who will give him a good loving home and meet his needs. 757-771-3925 (Less)

|Animal ID: 1693Winnie (female)|
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 thunderstorms and getting my picture taken. Either one will send me skedaddling for cover. Storms aren't quite so scary when I'm wearing my T-shirt and can find a place to hide, like under the bed. Foster Mom says I can be snarky towards some folks, but if you're patient and gentle--not pushy, 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 walk nicely on a leash, but I'm not too fond of being left in a crate. 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 kindhearted person who is home most of the time so that I won't have to be crated too much. 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.
