|Animal ID: 1462Jade (female)|
Beautiful Jade is a 2- to 3-year-old, 14-lb. friendly and playful Rat Terrier, who loves to cuddle. A little shy at first, Jade has a sweet disposition and warms up fairly quickly to both men and women. She loves to play with her 10-year-old human roommate and thinks he is nice to cuddle with too. Although a little cautious with cats at first, Jade is interested in them and wants to be friends, even if the cat doesn't feel the same. Jade is starting to learn to play fetch, and she loves all types of toys, especially the squeaky ones. She loves to play chase with her three rattie housemates. She loves cuddling and kissing anyone and everyone. She is quickly catching on to walking on a leash. Jade is working on her house training, including using the doggie door, but she needs a schedule with reminders to go. She doesn't mind sleeping in the crate at night but would certainly sleep in the bed with people if allowed. She is working on basic commands with clicker training and is reward driven, which should make her training easy to continue in her new home. Learn more about Jade on her foster family's Website at http://GigHarborRatties.com/Jade and see more photos of her at http://ImageEvent.com/newrattitude/Jade . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Jade, 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: 1459Berrie (female)|
Berrie is an 8- to 9-month-old, 11-pound sweetie, who is happy to be wherever her people are. A medium- to high-energy dog, she loves to play in the backyard with toys or with her canine family, especially her foster brother. If it is sunny outside, she will sniff the air and show her foster parents how fast she can run! Berrie also has her more mellow side and enjoys curling up with her folks when they watch TV or read a book. Although she can be a little timid around strangers and will flatten to the ground at first, Berrie bonds very quickly to new people and enjoys making friends wherever she goes! She is fairly reliable with her potty training, especially when kept on a schedule, and she sleeps in a crate at night. She will, however, gladly accept any invitations to sleep in a bed with humans. She would do best in a home where she has a doggie playmate to run and wrestle with. You can see photos of this lovely young lady in her online album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/berrie . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Berrie, 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.== (Less)

|Animal ID: 1451Skipper (male)|
Skipper is 7 months and 7 lbs. of puppy cuteness. He is a little timid around people but is slowly warming up to these two-legged creatures. He loves playing with other dogs and is curious about cats but can't quite figure them out. He loves to run and play with squeaky toys. He is being house trained, which is going well with a regular schedule, and he is also being crate trained. Come see his daily antics and learn more about him at http://www.yapitude.blogspot.com/search/label/Skipper . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Skipper, 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: 14-08-03-00336Cali (female)|
Cali was rescued from the San Bernardino City Shelter in Southern California. She was on the kill list for that day when I saw her. She was so stunning I had to save her. It took some doing but a rescue came to my assistance and pulled her for me. She was spayed on 7/31 and thus cannot go to a new home for two weeks. She came from either an abusive environment or was just ignored. When she settled down into her own comfy bed she was so relieved and exhausted she did not move for 12 hours - sadly, probably the first bed of her own and kindness ever shown to her. I have talked to a breeder and she is a standard size rat terrier. She is white and beautiful long legs and brindle brown face - she is simply beautiful. She is very timid right now but already in 24 hours she started to wag her tail and when I gave her roasted chicken, her eyes lit up! I would advise feeding her separately should you have other dogs. Dogs who have been neglected need their space when eating! In time she will make a wonderful, loyal companion. She loves her kennel mate but I have not introduced her to cats yet. Will update when I know how she acts around them. My cats are very good with dogs coming and going so we will see. I will be updating with new information on her as I have it. As of now, I am learning about her behavior daily. Please email me with any questions. She is going to be a keeper for sure! Please Western WA from Seattle to Canadian border please. I insist on home checks or detailed video of home yard and references from people in your community as well as vet. (Less)

|Animal ID: 1447Seven (male)|
Are you looking for a fun-loving, active buddy? If so, stop your search right now! My name is Seven, and I'm a 3- to 4-year-old, 14.5-lb. Rat Terrier mix. Don't let my size fool you into thinking that I can't handle physical stuff. I'm one sturdy little boy, who loves to go on walks and has great leash skills. I can easily walk 10 miles, and a hike is, well, just beyond amazing for me! When people stop and say hi, it's great since I love people! I do get a bit excited when I see other dogs on leash, so my foster mom is helping me to dial back my excitement. I'm also working on my house training, and with a reliable schedule, I know I'll get it down quickly. I'm doing well with crate training, especially when I get awesome stuff to keep me busy in my crate. Since I do like to hunt critters, it would be best for everyone if I didn't live with cats. My great terrier personality and antics keep my foster parents grinning, but I really want to bring the smiles to my very own people in a forever home. So stop your looking and look me up on my foster mom's blog at http://cattierattie.blogspot.com or on my personal photo/video album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/seven .========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Seven, 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: GIGI (female)|
GIGI, age is unknown but the groomer thinks she is 5-8 years old, about 5 lbs. We are keeping GIGI for my Sister who has health problems and can no longer care for her. She is a little ball of energy, tail wagging all the time, a very happy dog, shy at first, but warms quickly. She gets along with our English bulldog and 2 pugs wonderfully. She loves to cuddle, She is a very happy dog, she has a little separation issue but nothing major, we would keep her but already have 3 dogs and 4 is just too much. She will need her vaccinations and a teeth cleaning, She sometimes goes potty in the house but we are training her, not a huge problem. Come meet GIGI you will fall for her she is a real charmer.

|Animal ID: 1087Will (male)|
Did I hear you calling me? I answer to Will, a pretty perfect name for a little 11-lb. guy who's part Rattie and part Dachshund. I'm about 3 years old and have tons of personality, as you would see if you took me home. Everyone laughs when I walk because they say I have the cockiest little strut they've ever seen and my ears flap in the wind with one going forward and one going backward. My foster mom thinks I need to pay attention more so she is teaching me some cute little tricks that are gonna make me smarter! I already know how to use the doggie door, and I am good left loose in the house when my foster parents run an errand. Car rides are the best! Walks are fun, too, except when big dogs rush into my space and scare me, and then I have to bark at them. I've never met a cat I didn't want to chase, so it's probably best if we don't try to live under the same roof. Young children excite me, and I'm afraid I might forget myself and get a little 'bitey' with them. The dogs in my foster home are so much fun to play with that I'm hoping to land in a home with at least one four-legged brother or sister to keep me company. I'm a pretty happy guy most of the time as you can see by my tail going a mile a minute. So anyway if you're looking for me, you can find me underneath the nearest blanket taking a snooze. Just give me a call 'cause I'm ready to cuddle and sit on your lap anytime. If you want to see more, I'm on 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: 14-07-17-00654Huck (male)|
Darling Huck! This tiny, barely 6lb little guy is really quite a gem! He's very friendly and sweet... and he gets along great with other dogs. He's about 6-7yrs old... the perfect mature age to still have lots of playful pep, and also have a calm, easy going way about him. He's a very quiet little guy that loves to go for car rides or take a leisurely walk around the neighborhood. Huck is the perfect condo size companion and will thrive in a home that can spend plenty of time with him. He can be left home alone for a reasonable amount of hours, although a retired couple would be ideal! Huck is a very healthy, happy, easy going guy that just had his teeth cleaned and now he's ready to find that special, forever lap to call his own! (Less)

|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!!! firstname.lastname@example.org 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)

|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.
