|Animal ID: 16-02-09-00099Jaz (female)|
Jasmine aka Jaz aka Jazzy is a 14 lb rat/russell terrier mix. She is 7 years old and full of energy. Like most of her breed, she is super smart, loves to fetch and run obstacles. She listens to sit and stay commands and loves to go for walks and hikes. She is up to date on all of her shots and vaccines. She is best suited for a home without other dogs and children so she can remain the center of attention. Contact Katie at 703.851.7506 or email@example.com if you are interested in providing her with a loving home!

|Animal ID: 1696Rudy (male)|
Meet Rudy! He's a 4-year-old 12-lb. Rat Terrier and cute as can be! He's just a bit shy when meeting a new person or dog, but he warms up quickly. Rudy's happiest when snuggling with his human, but he also loves being with other dogs. If not in someone's lap, he's right next to a dog buddy. His attitude toward cats is 'live and let live;' he doesn't chase or pester them at all. Generally a quiet boy who's not a fan of hustle and bustle or a lot of noise, Rudy will bark to let you know if someone comes visiting or if he needs to go out. Not only is this smart little guy house trained, he also walks nicely on leash, plus he's learning some tricks for treats, which he loves. Rudy sleeps fine overnight in a crate if a dog friend is nearby, but of course his favorite spot is in bed with a human. Right now, Rudy is being treated for heartworm, and the treatment requires that he be kept quiet. When the restrictions are lifted, he will probably be a moderately active dog. All is going well, and he'll have his last treatment this month. Then this awesome companion dog will be ready to join your family! See more pictures of Rudy in his online album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/rudy . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Rudy, 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: 1705Jaxper (male)|
Jaxper, a handsome 11-month-old, has a great personality and temperament that's a balance of playful and calm. Jax enjoys playing chase with the other dogs in the backyard of his foster home and playing with his toys, especially squeaky ones. Then when playtime is over, he's ready to snuggle and give kisses. At 12 lbs, he's a perfect size to curl in your lap while you watch TV. Definitely a 'people' dog, Jax will want to be wherever you are. He'll want to sleep in the bed with you, kissing you goodnight and snuggling close as you drift off to sleep together. Jax can be shy when he first meets people but will warm up quickly. He also does well around the other dogs and cats in his foster home. Jax is working on walking on a leash, crate training, and potty training,and he's doing well. He would benefit from an obedience class, which would continue to help with socialization skills. If you are looking for a playful and loving guy, Jaxper says, 'Pick me! Pick me!' ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Jaxper, 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: 16-01-20-00774Figaro (male)|
I'm 13 lbs. of adorable Rat Terrier cuddles searching for a new family to love. My person died. Hope you see the eagerness in my sweet eyes. My name's Figaro. While I don't sing opera, I guarantee to keep you entertained. I am a playful, smart and oh-so loyal companion. I'll snuggle close to keep you warm on cold winter days. So affectionate. Promise you lots of smiles watching me wrestle with stuffed animals and fetching tennis balls. Anything you want to teach, I am eager to learn. I'm friendly with everyone--adults and children--one of those who has never met a stranger. I'm good with other dogs my size and will warm up to larger dog friends. I am 7 years old, healthy and have received excellent care. I've been neutered, vaccinated and heartworm/Lyme tested. To make me your devoted forever friend, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for an adoption application. (Less)

|Animal ID: 1660Bella (female)|
Hi, my name is Bella, and I am a 3-year-old Rat Terrier mix. I'm an active, playful lover of the squeaky toy and of the great outdoors. I was found as a stray and rescued from a shelter by New Rattitude, so you can imagine I love to be wherever my humans are. My current humans in my foster home have other dogs and even some cats, and I get along with the dogs, though I sometimes have to let them know who's boss. I love to run and play with them in the fenced-in yard. (For a short-legged girl of just 10 lbs., I can fly!) I must confess that cats, however, were put on earth just for me to chase and annoy. Oh, and while we're into confessions, I just have one more--riding in cars can make me feel sick. Other than that, it's all good! I'm house trained and leash trained, and I enjoy taking walks. With a little convincing in the form of a treat, I'll go into my crate, even though it's not my fondest place to be. So don't you think I would make an awesome addition to your family? Yeah, I think so too. I've got my paws crossed that I'll hear from you soon! ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Bella, 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: 1701Lolita (female)|
Lolita, or Lola, is a very pretty 2-year-old, weighing around 16 lbs., but she could stand to lose a pound or so. Lola can be pushy with other dogs, but with a little correction, she settles and has gotten along fine with the dogs in her foster home. The resident cat has her bewildered. She nudges him with her nose and tries to push him to run, but he ignores her. After a while, she gives up and walks away. A cat that runs would give her the satisfaction of the chase, however, and this might create stress in her new family. Lolita LOVES people. She wants to be with people all the time. She is very snuggly and will curl right up with you to watch TV or nap. She is completely house trained and is learning to spend time in a crate, though it is not her favorite place to be. She walks well on a leash and does fine in the car. You could call Lola a 'turnkey' dog because she is so ready right now to go home--a forever home that can appreciate her beauty, bossiness, and need for snuggle time. Check out more photos of lovely Lola at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/lolita . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Lolita, 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: 1693Winnie (female)|
Winnie, a petite 9-year-old lady weighing around 12 lbs, can be quite discriminating in her selection of companionship. In particular, she does not appreciate the company of larger dogs or children, but she enjoys being with dogs her size and also cats. In fact, one of her favorite friends in her foster home is an older cat. They sit in the sun and nap together. And while she can be snarky towards certain people, she is also a sweet, funny girl, who is very snuggly with those she chooses to love immediately and others with the gentle patience to earn her trust. Winnie is completely house broken and crate trained. She walks well on a leash and loves to take rides in the car. Really her demands are few--she only needs a quiet home where she can snuggle on the couch and a person with a golden heart to give her a chance. More photos of Winnie are available 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.

|Rescue Me ID: 15-10-20-00624Ginny (female)|
Ginny is a 9 year old rat terrier-mix from a single family home, who still loves to play, and is very loving. Like all terrier breeds, she's very protective and let's everyone know when a stranger is close by. She's house trained, but does have Diabetes insipidus which makes her very thirsty sometimes, and requires medication a couple times a day. For this reason, we do leave a puppy pad on the floor inside, in case she can't hold it (She's very good at going on the puppy pad if nobody can let her out). She requires a grain free diet, for dogs with food sensitivities, but is otherwise a very healthy girl. Will make a great addition to any dog loving family. She loves to sit on couch and watch tv.

|Animal ID: 1647Zena (female)|
Zena's beautiful graying face says one thing, 'I want a home and a person to love.' Zena had grown up knowing such things, but at the age of 14, she suddenly found herself in a shelter when her human family came apart due to divorce. At first when she came into rescue, she was (naturally) still devastated by her loss, but after some time in a loving foster home and major health-promoting dental work, this resilient 18-lb. sweetheart is ready to imagine a future again. Zena loves to play with the other dogs in the home, and once in a while, even enjoys a game of fetch. A born snuggler, she loves sleeping in bed with her people and cozying up on the couch. Zena is house trained, has never had an accident in her foster home, and is trustworthy enough to be allowed free rein in the house when no one is home. She would be a perfect companion for a retired person or a family of any size. Yes, Zena is ready to look to the future, and in it, she can see a kindhearted soul calling out, 'Come here, ol' gal, you're home at last!' Wouldn't you like to be Zena's future? Check out more pictures of this sweetheart at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/zena . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Zena, 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.

Hayes, VA 23072 MAP IT!
|Animal ID: 1578Finley (male)|
Finley had a rough start in life. He spent his first year living outdoors with little human interaction. He also had difficulty walking--and could not run--due to patella luxation in both knees. Fortunately, things have really turned around for him since coming into foster care. His knees have been repaired and he now runs, jumps, and plays pain-free. It is a great joy to see this youngster (probably around 18 months old) enjoying life! Finn's lack of early socialization is still something that he is working to overcome, however. He has made great progress in his foster home and actually seeks attention from his foster family -- even coming and asking to sit beside them on the couch! But it will undoubtedly take some time to build his confidence in a new home to the point that he feels like part of the family, and his new people will need to be patient and understanding. Happily, he is food motivated and that definitely helps in the process. Finn weighs 13 lbs. and he loves to play with other dogs; he would do best in a home with another dog in residency to show him the ropes. He is working on mastering house training and does well if he is kept on a schedule. Due to his shy nature, loud or wild play by children would probably cause him additional anxiety, and he does need a securely fenced yard as he is still skittish with unfamiliar surroundings and is not confident on a leash yet. Once Finn gets comfortable in his surroundings, though, he shows what a great, lovable guy he truly is! Please check out more pictures of this beautiful boy at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/finley . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Finley, 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.
