Animal ID: 1645Fivel (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Cats, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Fivel is a 9-month-old 10-lb. Rat Terrier/Dachshund mix. He's one of the most adorable, snuggly dogs his foster family has ever come across, and they've fostered a LOT of pups. Fivel is well behaved in the house but still needs to be monitored and taken out frequently. He loves his small dog foster siblings but isn't very sure about the big dogs, so he barks loudly at them. This could be a problem for Fivel if left alone with the big guys, so he should be monitored under these circumstances. He does fine with the resident cats and is friendly to children. Fivel is a little shy when first meeting new people but warms up quickly. He walks well ... (Read More)on a leash and rides well in the car. Fivel will be a joy to any family who adopts him. More photos of this handsome boy can be found at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/fivel . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Fivel, 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: 1642Stan Lee (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Young Adult

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

    Stan Lee is a spunky, 9-month-old Rattie weighing 12 lbs., but with his long, lean build and tendency to bark at everything, he has a bit of growing left to do both physically and socially. His foster family is working with him to ensure that he is properly socialized, but his adopters will need to understand Stan's fear of new things and give him plenty of encouragement and chances to learn. In all other respects, Stan is a very sweet, energetic dog who would likely excel at agility, fly ball, or lure coursing. He is doing well at learning to do his business outdoors, having been paper trained in his previous home. He has a comical nature, ... (Read More)and once he gets to know you, he flips and contorts himself all over the place to get your attention. Stan does fine with other small dogs and even cats, but has not yet overcome his fear of large dogs. He will bark and snap at them--a behavior which could get him into trouble with the big guys, so he should not be in a home with dogs that are much larger than he is. Stan Lee is learning that new people, including children give him treats and pet him. He has gone to the local Farmer's Market and was a big hit with lots of new families. His foster mom was proud of him for not barking or being afraid. As Stan Lee's foster family continues to work with him, he is growing into one amazing little dog, who can't wait to become someone's faithful (and funny) companion. More photos of Stan Lee are available at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/stanlee . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Stan Lee, 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: 15-07-23-00117Mimi (female)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Mimi is believed to be about 6yrs old. She is house trained, walks well on a leash, and loves to have all of your attention. She is always happy to see her foster mom and she barks, jumps up, and has a happy tail until her foster mom picks her up and give her lovins. She gets along with other furbabies in her foster home but she isn't playful and sorta wants to be left only when they want to play. She needs to be in a low energy household without any kids under 13 yrs of age. She is apprehensive in big crowds so home who would just keep her in their house and spoil her rotten might be ideal. She is okay with cats. She is protective of her ... (Read More)treats but isn't aggressive, just likes to snarl if anyone or another dog gets too close. She is full of personality but it takes a bit for her to warm up to new people (Less)

Animal ID: 1630Monty (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

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

    Weighing just 8 lbs., Monty is 5 to 6 years old and proof positive that the best things do, indeed, come in small packages. He does well on a leash but really enjoys being off leash, exploring his fenced-in yard or perhaps playing a good game of chase or wrestling with his canine pals. Monty also loves toys and has discovered that chasing a flying fuzzy on a stick can be great fun when his canine sis lets him have a turn. (Being such a patient and good-natured pup, he doesn't mind waiting.) After a romp in the yard, Monty is content to settle in for a nap on your lap or on any soft bed. This happy little guy does fine with other dogs and ... (Read More)with cats, but he can get a bit snippy with younger kids if they approach him while he is sleeping. Any children in his new home should be old enough to respect his space during nap time. Monty is crate trained and doing well with potty training when kept on a schedule. If you are looking for a cute little snuggly guy with a lively step, then Monty might be your man. Check out more pics of Monty at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/monty . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Monty, 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: 1578Finley (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Young Adult

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

    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 ... (Read More)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.

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Scooter is an 8 yr male neutered Jack Russell/Fox Terrier mix. He came from a high kill shelter in NC. He is very laid back kind of dog. He just wants to lay around and chew on his rawhides all day. He loves to eat and is being placed on a diet to try to get him back into shape again. Scooter is house broken and crate trained.

He's neutered, current on vaccines and HW negative. He's fine with other dogs and seems to do well with kids. So if you want a very sweet and mellow fellow Rusty's your man!!

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! If you are interested in adopting Beanie, please go to http://adopt.ddbnova.org.
