|Rescue Me ID: 14-10-17-00063Loretta (female)|
I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, and good with dogs. Loretta's Story... Loretta is an adorable little lady who is about 2 years old. She is great with other dogs and seems to like everyone she meets. $175.00 adoption donation helps us take care of all the dogs we rescue. All dogs are spayed/neutered, tested for heartworm and tick borne diseases, microchipped and vaccinated for rabies, distemper/parvo and bordetella. They are also treated for internal and external parasites if needed. Many dogs also receive extensive medical care such as surgeries and dentals.

|Animal ID: 1495Molly (female)|
Molly is a beautiful blue Rat Terrier. She is about 2 years old and a tiny girl at 8 lbs., but don't let her size fool you. She is full of energy and ready to go, go, go. Molly loves to play fetch and play with the other dogs in her foster home. She does fine with cats as long as they are dog savvy and don't run from her. Fearful kitties that run, on the other hand, are great fun to chase. Molly has not spent much time around kids, but the few that she has met have made her very happy and wiggly. In fact, she seems to really love everyone. She does well on a leash and is still mastering the art of house training but is doing well if kept on a schedule. Molly is not fond of being left alone and would love to have a family who won't leave her for long periods of time. If you want a fun, energetic, athletic girl, then mini Molly makes a marvelous match! You can check out more cute pics in her online album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/molly . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Molly, 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: 1481Dexter (male)|
Dexter's got a new lease on life! It happened the day that New Rattitude stepped in and rescued him from the Georgia shelter where the handsome little Rat Terrier mix had been brought in as a stray and was about to be euthanized. And has he been one happy boy since that day! This loving 6-month-old has quickly adapted to life in his foster home. He enjoys being around people and being the center of attention--sometimes to the point of being demanding. (Well, who could blame him?) But once he calms down, he will sit with you while you relax or watch TV, and you'll barely notice he's there because he weighs just 15 lbs. Dexter is fond of snuggling and sleeping in bed with his people, sometimes under the covers, sometimes on top of the covers, or on the pillow; as long as you're there, he is not picky. Dexter would prefer a fenced-in yard as he loves to run and play in the backyard, and while he could do well as an only dog, he would really love to have a canine brother or sister since he is used to having playmates at his foster home. And while this boy is not overly fond of a leash, he is eager to please so he's working hard to learn to tolerate one. He is also working on crate training and house training, and he is doing well at both. Yes, Dexter is enjoying his second chance at life and he wants to share that life as a loyal and loving companion to someone...Could that 'someone' be you? ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Dexter, 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: 1315Wyatt (male)|
Hi, I'm Wyatt and I am SO hoping to find my forever home! You see, I was found as a stray and even though I can't remember how it all happened, I do remember that it was no fun! I'm only about 2 years old and 25 lbs., so I've got tons of energy and I just love to play ball. My foster parents took me to the beach this year, and I discovered that you can even play ball in the ocean!! I am a little shy at first and sometimes have trouble meeting new doggie friends, but if you're patient and take things slow while I get to know them, we'll probably do just fine. I've learned to get along with the other dogs and cats in my foster home. Sometimes the other dogs and I go outside to play ball. Did I mention that I love to play ball? There's even a new foster dog here now and we've become friends, but my foster parents still believe that I would do best as the only dog in your home because making new doggie friends can be really hard work. They wanted me to say that I 'could benefit from continued obedience training to help with socialization.' There! I said it. Although I might not know what those big words mean, I do know these things about me: I am fully house trained, and I do well either in a crate or free in the home. Also, I am a good walker on a leash, but I'd really love a yard with a fence, too, where I could run and play. And finally, I am very loyal and enjoy being wherever my foster parents are, including their bed. If you've ever been alone on the streets like me, then you know how wonderful it is to snuggle up to a person. It's a feeling that I wish could go on forever, and that's why I'm here, looking for a human or two--somebody like you--with a strong arm for throwing a ball and a soft heart looking to love a faithful boy like me. ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Wyatt, 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: 14-10-04-00016HALEY (female)|
Meet Haley!!! Can you say fun loving, easy going, snuggle kinda girl??? That's what she is besides the best June Bug (and any flying thing) chaser in town. She is absolutely content to dance around the yard chasing anything that flies and when she's done she is the best snuggler you can imagine. Haley was left by a creek all by herself when a lady saw her and called Katie's Roadside Rescue. She wasn't in the best shape when she came into rescue but she is stunning now!!! She is house and, crate trained, up to date, spayed, and chipped. The only thing haley is missing is a safe home and loving family in Connecticut, Maryland or Virginia. We will transport Haley out of the high kill state of Texas via Rescue Road Trips. Her transportation fee is included. If you'd like to make sweet Haley part of your family go to www.krrtx.org for an adoption application. ~Thanks~ (Less)

|Rescue Me ID: 14-09-10-00721Tasha (female)|
Sweet Tasha is one of the girls in a litter of four that were saved. She has the cutest white socks on her front paws. Tasha is a bit shy and a little scared of being held but loves if you sit on the floor with her. She is cute, funny and playful and runs like the wind! Have tried to get a video but she's too fast! She's doing pretty well with potty training and will use a potty pad. She will need more help in her new home. She's smart so it shouldn't take long! Sasha is spayed, chipped and up to date on her vacs. Tasha is looking for a loving forever home in Connecticut, Maryland, or Virgina. She will be transported out of high kill Texas via Rescue Road Trips. Adoption fee includes transport. An adoption application is available at www.krrtx.org. Thank you for 'opting to adopt'. (Less)

|Rescue Me ID: 14-09-04-00238Magdalena 'Maggie' (female)|
My name is Maggie and my mom died of Cancer this year. I have been living with a large family with other pets, but am used to being 'the' girl of the house. I would love to find my fur-ever home as I have only lived in one other house since I was a puppy. I am very sweet, love to play and go for walks and would love to run with you while you bike. I am a great snuggler and love being with my humans.

|Animal ID: 1468Dante (male)|
Handsome Dante, an 11-lb. short-legged Rattie, is 8 years old, but don't let his age fool you. Full of spunk and energy, this fellow is extremely fast and loves to chase things, including chickens, squirrels, rabbits, birds, and cats. In fact, he would probably make a good barn ratter or an excellent candidate for agility or lure coursing. His strong prey drive also means that he should live in a home with a good fence and no cats. While Dante gets along with other small dogs, his energy and attitude are not well tolerated by some of the big guys in his foster home. Dante LOVES toys and will shred a stuffed toy in minutes. He adores chasing balls and will run after them for as long as someone is willing to throw them. His playful antics entertain his foster family on a regular basis, and he would love to entertain your family, too, as long you don't have very young (preschool age and under) children. He can bark at little ones to the point of scaring them, and he has a fairly low threshold for being irritated by some of the typical ways young children may interact with dogs, i.e. touching, pushing, or taking away a beloved chew toy. Dante would not want to be placed in a situation where he might nip at a child. In all other respects, Dante is simply a comical fellow, who enjoys the company of people and loves to snuggle with them in bed or on the couch in the evening. And he is proud to say that he is house trained and will let you know when he needs to go out. You can catch more pictures of dashing and devoted Dante at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/dante. =======================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Dante, 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.

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.

|Rescue Me ID: 14-04-11-00253Beanie (male)|
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 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.
