CHIHUAHUA PUPPIES!! These puppies are highly adoptable and we will be taking applications for them to ensure they get the best possible home! They are very young puppies that will require a ton of time and energy to get properly housebroken as well socialized with the world. These little guys need to get out and meet new people and animals EVERYDAY, this is the most crucial time in their development, and we want to make sure that they do not grow up to be little monsters. They will be required to attend positive based obedience classes with you and will need to be signed up before their adoption can be complete. Chihuahuas have tiny systems, so they will need more potty breaks than bigger dogs. These little dogs will be very time consuming and we will not be adopting any out together. If you think that you have the time and energy to raise a social Chihuahua, just ask the front for an application (Less)

|Rescue Me ID: 14-11-18-00571Mona (female)|
Are you looking for a friend? Well so am I! Someone to take on an adventure? Me too! How about cuddle on the couch and relax on a quiet afternoon? Sounds perfect to me. I'm not looking for just anyone, I want someone who can appreciate my affectionate side, my fun side, my quirks and the areas I'm still growing in. I want someone who can love me for me. I'm not just a pretty face; I'm smart, athletic, and playful too. I'm rat terrier and blue heeler, weigh about 21 lbs, and you'll fall in love with my expressive brown eyes. My foster mom says I would be a really great agility, flyball, jogging, or hiking partner. There's nothing I like more than finding new trails or early morning walks; but the thing is, afterward I also like to wind down next to you to nap or snuggle. I am very calm at home, don't bark much, and am well behaved when left alone and perfectly crate trained! I'm still learning how to play with my toys, and not be so sensitive to loud sounds and big strangers. Maybe you could help me? I've been getting a lot better at overcoming these obstacles, just think how much stronger and braver I'll be in just a few months! Mom says that I have a lot of love to give, I just need someone to be patient with me and let me be part of their family. I have been around other dogs and kiddos, but I might play too rough with kitties or smaller animals. Even though I'm a little nervous around strangers, I like meeting new people on walks or when we go to the pet store or my favorite coffee shop (they give me pets and free treats!). I have boundless optimism for my future and am confident we'd make a good team! I think I am about 3 years old. I cam up all the way from San Antonio TX to get adopted to a great NW home... have all my vetting done, dewormed, spay, microchipped, rabies, shots, etc. Rehoming fee includes transport to the NW. My foster mom is close to Tualitin, OR for a meet and greet! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for an application. 360-480-9531. Adoption fee can be somewhat flexible, a great forever home is not negotiable! Miss Mona (Less)

|Animal ID: 0826Fisher (male)|
Fisher is a shy, sensitive 2-1/2-year-old with a calm presence. At 13 lbs., he is just the right size for curling up with you when you read a book or watch TV. He likes taking it easy and being wherever his people are, especially his foster dad. Fisher takes a while to trust new people, but after he does, he wants all of their attention. This sweet, mellow dog likes his environment to be just as laid-back as he is, and the way that young children move quickly and often too close can be very frightening to him and cause him to nip in warning, so Fisher's future home should not include little ones. Fisher enjoys taking daily walks around the neighborhood, and if it's sunny, he loves to spend time exploring, sniffing the air, and playing chase with his canine foster sister. Fisher has good dog-to-dog manners and would do well in a home where he has a doggie playmate. After having a couple of potty accidents when he first came into foster care, he has been accident-free since that time and responds quickly when asked to 'go potty' outside. Fisher sleeps in a crate at night, but he would happily accept invitations to sleep in bed with his humans, if that is their preference. For more pictures of this fantastic fellow, see Fisher's online photo album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/fisher . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Fisher, 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: Shilo and FletcherShilo (female)|
Shilo and Fletcher were found living out of a cardboard box in a church parking lot. They were both filthy, hungry and scared. They are now safe, clean and fed. They have both been fixed and UTD on their vaccinations. We would love for this bonded pair to go together but may consider adopting out seperately if all else fails. Both are super sweet dogs that love people and playing fetch! Shilo is the dachshund and Fletcher is the terrier, they are both very small and about 6 pounds.

|Rescue Me ID: 14-11-07-00693MONA (female)|
Mona is a great sweet little dog.... Rat terrier with some red and blue heeler... Definitely not a dog if you have small critters or chickens... She can be great with other dogs, she has become very social!! She is about 22# and is heart worm negative!! :) She is active and would love to be a lap dog (if she could stay still long enough :) She is a pretty good puppy babysitter, she will teach them manners quickly. But what she really wants is her own family that will love her the way she is... She is a sweetheart, high energy (great walking and hiking dog) she is somewhat anxious like a rat terrier, but with exercise and attention she will settle in nicely. The adoption fee includes transport fees to the NW and vaccines, spay and neuter, micro chip. WE pre adopt our dogs as we do not have any foster homes here in the NW... , if you decide she isn't the right fit for you/your family we do require you agree to foster her until we find her great forever home which usually takes less than a month. FOR AN APPLICATION OR TO LEARN MORE, please visit our website, www.yourtxrescueconnection.org or contact Debbie at email@example.com. You can even speak to some folks who have adopted dogs from us this year who are so thrilled with their wonderful fur kids. Our adoption fee is $350 which includes transport. Our dogs come fully vetted, microchipped,neutered/spayed and all shots. http://godsdogsrescue.weebly.com/adoption-information.html Thank you! * (Less)

|Rescue Me ID: 14-10-23-00583ROMEO (male)|
Romeo came into our rescue only about 4 days ago. He really likes a little fuzzy girl dog named Juliet, hence his name. He is about 12 lbs, will likely grow a little bit, but not too big, as he is already over 1 year old. I would guess 1-2. I think he is a terrier mixed with possibly Chihuahua. He has more of the short Chihuahua fur though, so fine hair. He is SO cuddly, friendly, and good with people and other dogs. He is a spunky little guy. He came into our pound, and I walked outside with him, and sat in the grass, he curled up in my lap, as if to say "don;t leave me here pleasee" He is so far, good with cats, as well. He is the perfect size, big enough to go for light hikes, walks, and play and yet cuddle up in your arms too, He is very quiet overall, and just wants someone to love him. His ideal home would be someone who has another little dog for him to play with, and a fenced yard. He will need someone who has a flexible schedule, who works from home, or who could bring him along. He would do well, as an office dog. He maybe a little shyer in new situations, but with someone who is patient, he will do well. He does have energy, so someone who gets out alot would be a plus. We will be taking him into the vet this week, and he will be neutered, and he has already started his puppy shots. Romeo is being fostered near Tri Cities WA, but can be brought to the Seattle area for an approved adopter. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for an application to adopt! (Less)

|Animal ID: 1485Spencer (male)|
Do you want to play? So does Spencer! How about a snuggle? Spencer is your go-to guy! This 1-year-old Rat Terrier can be a little shy at first, but once he feels safe, he will be up for whatever you are. He will be eager to show off his handsome 11-lb. physique and the adorable head tilt he gives whenever you make an interesting sound. He will be ready to ride in the car with you and to continue learning to walk on the leash. He is house trained with a doggie door, and he is learning to use his crate as his 'let's be quiet and chill' space. Spencer likes meeting people and is good with small children if they are gentle. Cats are ok too. He likes other dogs that are about his size, but big dogs are kind of scary for this little fellow. You can see more pictures of Spencer and learn more about him on his foster mom's blog at http://yapitude.blogspot.com . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Spencer, 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.

Corrie ia about 3 years old and just a little guy so no young children please. He is hoping for a moderately calm home. Corrie is good with other dogs so another dog in the home would be good, but is not required.

|Rescue Me ID: 14-10-05-00592Derby (male)|
Derby is a fun-loving Rat Terrier. He loves to play and often grins. He loves nothing more than to sit beside you on a chair especially under a blanket. He has an under-bite that does not affect eating, only adds to his adorable quirkiness. He is healthy and is micro-chipped. He tolerates grooming and nail grinding, he leads, sits, lies down, stays, beginning on agility equipment, started Nosework and Trieball. All of these activities are to keep him happy and occupied. We must find a new home before he gets injured by our 2 German Shepherds. He does not back down when he feels threatened by them and will steal their chew toys. I'm worried for his continued good health. Thanks for looking at him - he's precious. (Less)

|Animal ID: 1484Tuttle (male)|
Sweet Tuttle is a 1-year old, 13-lb. fun-loving boy with the short little legs characteristic of a Type B, or Teddy, Rat Terrier. He's playful and goofy and still very much a puppy in his mannerisms. He has a silky, soft, chocolaty coat and beautiful hazel eyes that are always taking things in and trying to decide what his next adventure will be. When he visits the pet store with his foster mom, he has enjoyed meeting new people and kids but is a bit shy at first. Of course he is quickly won over by treats and a good scratch. He's young and is still learning training basics. His foster family is working with him, and he's doing great with his house training using the crate training method and a frequent schedule for potty breaks. His loose-leash walking is coming along well too. Because he's very intelligent and treat motivated, he would do great in a training class using positive reinforcement. While Tuttle loves kitties because they are such great fun to chase, kitties do not love Tuttle, so he would do best in a cat-free home. He also loves playing with other dogs but can be a little over excited when first meeting them, so he needs to be introduced to them slowly so that they don't get irritated with him. Tuttle would love a home with people who appreciate him for the smart little terrier that he is and who love outdoor adventures as much as he does. Are you looking for a walking partner who is equally as comfortable settling in for a cuddle at the end of the day? Then look no further because Tuttle is your man. You can find more photos of Tuttle at www.imageevent.com/newrattitude/tuttle or follow him on his foster mom's blog at www.rescuedratties.blogspot.com . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Tuttle, 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: 14-09-21-00114Annie (female)|
Annie was adopted a year and half ago from New Rattitude, unfortunately due to serious health issues my dad is unable to care for her. She is very sweet and loving. She loves kids and would make a great companion. She is very smart and trains easily. It does take her a day to get used to other dogs, but once familiar becomes best friends. I believe she is around 2-3 years old.

|Animal ID: 1460Plum (female)|
Playful Plum, a 7-month-old, 6-lb. Rat Terrier mix, is a little clown who will keep you in stitches with her puppy antics! This high-energy girl loves to be wherever her people are or in the backyard playing with toys or her foster brother. If it is sunny outside, she loves to sniff the air or go on walks around the neighborhood. She likes meeting new people and makes friends wherever she goes. Plum is very smart, catching on to training quickly, and is fairly reliable with her potty training when she is kept on a schedule. She has also become a master at getting around, over, or under baby gates, so she will need a home that will keep her active terrier self busy and would do best in a home where she has a similar-sized doggy playmate to run and wrestle with. Since Plum is a young puppy who is still learning to use her mouth appropriately, she wouldn't be a good match for a home with children too young to understand and protect their own fingers. She sleeps in a crate at night, but like so many Ratties, Plum would never turn down an invitation to join her humans in bed. See more pictures of pretty Plum at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/plum . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Plum, 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: 14-08-11-00201Trixie (female)|
Darling Trixie was one of 15 little dogs left abandoned in a vacant house and when we rescued them, they were all very scared and unsocialized. Trixie was pregnant so was one of those most scared of her new surroundings and new people. But now that she's had her babies and and all are adopted, she's ready to find her own, wonderful forever home. She is a bit shy when first meeting but with a few treats and gentle petting, she quickly becomes a very sweet, affectionate girl. Trixie is about 2yrs old and weighs about 11lbs. She does not need a fenced backyard as long as she has plenty of long walks and inside playtime. She's great with other dogs but does not need another in the home. Because she can still be a bit shy with new people, children must be over 12yrs old. (Less)

|Animal ID: 1087Will (male)|
My name is Will -- just about the most perfect name for a Dachshund/Rat Terrier mix fellow with as much personality as you could want! I'm around 3-1/2 years old, weigh approx. 13 lbs., and walk like I pretty much own the world. My foster mom laughs when I come strutting from the back yard with a leaf in my mouth. (I love leaves of every kind and if it's not a leaf, a twig will do nicely.) They say I need to work on my confidence as I am not sure of people when they come toward me without warning, and sometimes I forget myself and can get a little bitey with hands coming at me, so I wouldn't be a good match for a home with children. I am quick to learn, as my foster mom has taught me to sit on cue, lie down, and roll over in my own funny way. I am great on a leash and get so excited to go for walks. My foster mom is working on helping me refocus when other dogs get too near me -- my habit is to start to bark and lunge -- and she says I am doing really great! I hope my adopter has another dog for me to play with, as I love to wrestle and snuggle and have a playmate to keep me company. I do really great being left in the house loose when my parents are gone but I have a very loud voice when I bark so I will need to live in a free-standing home so that we don't risk any complaints from irritable neighbors. I always have a toy in my mouth to greet my foster parents when they come home. I would love to live in a home with a fenced yard. I am great at using the doggie door but my house training skills are still a work in progress. If you are interested in a cocky little guy that would love nothing more than to cuddle next to you on the couch, I'm your man! You can see more of me in my on-line photo album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/will. ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Will, 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: 14-05-31-00009Mona (female)|
She is a rat terrier with some healer but did not see heeler as an option. She needs to ONLY be with other submissive dogs, cannot be with cats or chickens and we guess NOT good with other critters as well. What did you expect with a rat terrier! lol. She is a sweet higher energy 22 pound female young dog. She loves humans but unless you have no other dogs or only submissive dogs she would not be the right fit for you. Our dogs must be pre adopted as we do not have the fosters here to care for them. You talk to the rescue that has the dog and there is a trial basis. If she is not the right fit, then you simply foster her until we find her the right fit, which shouldn't take but a few weeks at most. She loves humans and would make a good lap dog if she could sit still long enough!!! email@example.com 2 references please not relatives . Our dogs come up pre adopted, with of course a 10 day trial period just in case. No one has returned a puppy but we want an excellent fit. (Less)

|Animal ID: 1008Cody (male)|
My name is Cody. I'm a 6-year-old, 18-lb. fellow on a journey for my forever home! Before coming into foster care, I lived outside in a small pen at a shelter by myself, so I've spent a lot of time learning how awesome it is to live with people, other dogs, and even a cat! I am a very sweet boy who loves touch, but sometimes when I get a little nervous about touch, I'll growl and let you know I need some reassurance. I often can't get enough love from my foster mom, and I follow her everywhere. I have a special look I give when I want love, and if you bend over and hold out your hands, I'll come lean my body against yours while you rub on me. I especially love my head, neck, chest and tummy being rubbed. If you want to hang out on the couch, I love to lie on top of you! I love people, but I wouldn't want to live in a home with children or frequent child visitors because they can move erratically and that makes me nervous. I love walks and do best with at least an hour of walking a day. I'm excellent at car rides and sit quietly in my kennel or harness. I love riding in the car even if you're just doing errands, but I love it even more if you're driving me somewhere to go for a hike! I'm completely house trained and can be left loose in the house while you're gone without getting into anything I shouldn't. I enjoy playing with balls, rattie-shaking my toys, and sometimes tugging at toys while making ferocious sounds. There are two smaller female terriers in my foster home plus a cat, and we have all worked out the rules for living peacefully together. I could share a home with one or two other confident, easy-going dogs, or I could live as a single dog. But no disrespectful or rambunctious roomies, please! I will do best in a quieter environment, so busy apartments or condos aren't for me. If you live in a small, quiet complex, then I would do fine there or in a house. I have reflux, so I eat out of a special chair called a Bailey Chair, which my foster mom can tell you all about. She has set up a fun online photo album with pictures of me at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/cody and she even blogs about me at http://merrypaws.blogspot.com . =======================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Cody, 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.
