|Animal ID: 1658Henderson (male)|
If you've ever dreamed of having a handsome, easy-going, and fun little dog in your life, please take a look at me. My name is Henderson, and I'm about 3 years old and weigh almost 12 lbs. (could use a pound or so more, which I'm working on). I've got lots of personality and tons of energy, and I love playing with toys and tossing them in the air to chase them. My foster parents are amazed that just a few weeks ago, I was found wandering around in Central CA, and here I am today, a happy, friendly, sweet-natured boy, who gets along with the other dogs in my foster home and all the people I meet. (Haven't met kids yet, but I think I'd like them too. Kitties are another matter; they're made for chasing, so a home without those furry little pests would be best for me.) In addition to my awesome personality and energy, I've got skills! I know how to use a dog door, and my foster parents say that I seem to be already totally house trained. They can leave me loose in the house when they go for short errands, and I'm well behaved. Also, I sleep in my kennel at night with no problem. When I'm sleeping, I like to dream about my forever home, a place with space for me to run and play (probably not an apartment or condo because I can get a little barky when I play or hear noises outside.) In my dreams, I can see my very own human or maybe a whole family playing with me, taking me for long walks and runs, and also just sitting and cuddling with me. Hey, wait a minute! That human looks a lot like you! If you want to see more pictures of me, please visit http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/henderson . We might be each other's dream come true! ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Henderson, 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: 1663Roux (male)|
Roux is a sweet and energetic 6-month-old Rat Terrier. At 9 lbs., he is just the right size for walks around the neighborhood or curling up in your lap while you read a book or watch TV. He bonds very quickly to new people and follows his foster parents around the house like a shadow. Although he can be a little grumpy when first meeting a new dog, once he feels safe, he coexists without incident. Roux would be fine as an only dog or with a similar-sized doggy friend in his new home, and he'd be fine with kids there too. When kept on a schedule, Roux is extremely reliable with his house training and has only had a few accidents in his foster home. He sleeps in a crate next to his foster parents' bed, but he would happily join you in bed if invited. This energetic and very intelligent puppy would do best in an active and stimulating home. And because he's a hand-shy fellow who really wants to trust his people and receive affection, he also needs an adopter who can provide him reassurance and help build his confidence with a positive-based approach. Does that sound like you? Then check out Roux! ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Roux, 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: 15-09-12-00427Atom (male)|
Atom is an awesome little guy. Good with dogs, annoying but not dangerous to cats., loves people. Not much of a barker but he will hold a conversation with you if he isn't getting what he wants. He's still got a lot of puppy to him though he is said to be nearly 2 years old. Loves to chew, he'd love a yard to dig in. He's smart and trainable but best suited to someone with terrier experience.

|Animal ID: 1644Rediviva (female)|
Hi there! My name is Rediviva. If that makes you think of an opera star, then you're on the right track as I certainly am not a backup singer. If I were a pizza topping, I'd be an anchovy: a well-defined flavor that stands out from all the others. That's not to say I'm a girl who's hard to get along with; I'm just full of Terrier smarts, and I'll keep a grin on your face. I am 4 to 5 years old and admit I could stand to lose a couple of my 19 lbs. I'm house trained and like to walk on a leash as long as no distractions, such as critters or other dogs, are involved. My foster mom and I are working on my leash skills, and I'm already showing improvement. I love a good car ride and am always ready for a training session. While I may be a bit aloof at our first meeting, I do want to engage with you, and I connect strongly with both men and women. I'm told I give sweet and gentle kisses, too. I'm not one of those manic dogs who has to be doing something all the time, either. As long as I have some stimulating adventures, I am content to lounge on the couch next to you or to relax in my bed. My foster parents think I would do best as an only dog in a home with no cats or kids because--let's face it--I'm the one who needs to be on center stage so that I can show off all the tricks you're going to teach a smart girl like me. You can follow me on my foster mom's blog at http://cattierattie.blogspot.com/ and I have my personal photo album with video at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/rediviva . Come check me out! ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Rediviva, 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.

Housetrained Has accompanied family in hikes, camping successfully. He needs someone that will give him exercise and attention (if bored he will try to escape from yard. he has successfully escaped from time to time and goes looking for someone to play with.

|Animal ID: 1174Dallas (male)|
Meet Dallas! He's an oh-so-sweet and gentle 2-year-old Rat Terrier/Chihuahua mix with an easygoing personality and a playful nature. Dallas loves both men and women and gets along great with other dogs. He enthusiastically enjoys just about any activity--running, playing with toys, riding in the car (he's a great little traveler), and taking daily walks on a leash. He also loves just to sit in your lap and cuddle. For his 14 lbs., Dallas does have a loud bark, which he uses to alert you to noises outside, so he would not make a welcome resident in an apartment. In fact, he would love the larger space of a fenced-in yard and other doggie siblings to keep him company and wrestle with. Dallas is fully house trained and sleeps in his kennel at night without making a peep. While he doesn't like being kenneled during the day, he is so mannerly that he can be left loose in the house for short periods. He also knows how to sit on command and comes right away when he's called. Dallas has a lot of love to give and can't wait to find his very own family with whom to share that love. To see more photos of Dallas, you can visit his online album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/dallas . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Dallas, 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: 1634Lizzy (female)|
What do you get when you add a dash of Jack Russell ears and temperament to a Rat Terrier body? You get Lizzy, a 1-year-old 12-lb. gal as energetic as she is cute. She is all about having fun and loves hanging out with her people and other dogs. She enjoys toys of any type, chasing critters, and tearing around with the other dogs in her foster home. Kitties would not likely appreciate her since she loves to chase and is already displaying a big prey drive. Confidence is not an issue with Lizzy, and as long as her person is there to provide support, she's willing to try just about anything. We can see her really loving a positive reinforcement puppy class. She is so smart that she will need an adopter who is willing to keep her brain, as well as her body, busy. In fact, with her smarts, athleticism, and attentiveness to people, she would probably excel at just about any dog sport. And because of her energy level, she will do best in a home with a securely fenced yard. Lizzy is doing well with her house training when kept to a schedule and taken out regularly. Now all she asks for is a home that will appreciate and nurture her active and inquisitive nature. She's a big personality and a full load of cuteness in a little package. To learn more about Lizzy, you can check out her foster mom's blog at http://rescuedratties.blogspot.com or see more photos at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/lizzy . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Lizzy, 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 Washington|
Rat Terrier Dogs can make good pets in Washington 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.
