Animal ID: 1561Morrison (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Not Good with Cats 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Are you looking for a fun-loving, active buddy? Then you can stop your search right now! I'm Morrison, and my foster parents say I'm an awesome guy. I'm about 1 year old and weigh in at 8 lbs. I'm one agile and fast Rat Terrier. I love to go on walks! Don't let my size fool you into thinking that I can't handle long walks or hikes. I can easily walk 10 miles. And going on a hike? Well, that would be beyond amazing! When I'm out walking with my foster parents, people stop and say hi to me, which is great since I love people! I also love to play with other dogs and I really get along with the dogs in my foster home. I'm working on my house ... (Read More)training and with a reliable schedule I know I'll get it down quickly. I'm doing OK with crate training, but since I do vocalize my dislike of being crated, it's best that I live in a single-family detached home with a bit of space between me and the neighbors. I have that great terrier personality and one part of my great 'terrier-ness' is my love of hunting critters. Since cats are critters, I shouldn't live with cats. Another facet of my terrier personality is my ability to keep a grin on my foster parents' faces with all my antics. I'm a well-rounded guy who can't wait to find my forever home! You can follow me on my foster mom's blog at http://cattierattie.blogspot.com/, and you can see my personal photo/video album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/morrison . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Morrison, 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: 1535Sadie (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Cats 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Sadie, a tiny 6.5-lb. Rat Terrier mix, is a supreme cuddler and blanket burrower. She is friendly with all people she meets, and she loves to give kisses and to be held and have her belly rubbed as much as possible! A playful 1-year-old, Sadie loves to nibble on her toys and make them squeak, but she can also playfully nibble little hands and so would need to be watched around young children. She gets along well with other dogs (small dogs tested only), but she isn't a fan of cats at all. She has a little resource guarding with food and treats, but only toward other dogs, not people, and so she just needs to be monitored when being fed with ... (Read More)other dogs. She is well crate trained, and her house training is in progress and going well with a regular schedule. Come see more pictures of her at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/sadie or learn more about her on her foster mom's blog at http://yapitude.blogspot.com . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Sadie, 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: 1534Selma (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Young Adult

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

    Selma has a sweet, inquisitive nature that always trumps any of her initial shyness, so she ends up loving everybody she meets--young, old, human, or animal! This 7.5-lb. 1-year-old is good and gentle with small kids, but since she can get a little mouthy when yummy treats are offered, little ones must be careful with their hands. Selma loves unstuffing toys and wrestling with her canine foster sister, and she is fine around cats. She is working on her house training and is just starting to use the doggie door on her own, but she still needs regular reminders. She is also working on crate training, and given a little time to settle down, she ... (Read More)will stay there on her own. See more about Selma in her online album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/selma and on her foster mom's blog at http://yapitude.blogspot.com . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Selma, 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: 1536Velox (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Young Adult

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

    Velox is an energetic and sweet 1-year-old with a curious disposition. At 9 lbs., he is just the right size for curling up with you when you read a book or watch TV. This fun-loving boy likes chasing toys and taking it easy with his foster parents. Velox bonds very quickly to new people and wants all of their attention. Velox would likely do well with children, though he is still learning to use his mouth appropriately, so he wouldn't be a good match for a home with children too young to understand to protect their own fingers. A medium to high-energy dog, Velox enjoys taking daily walks around the neighborhood and wrestling with his canine ... (Read More)foster brother. He has good dog-to-dog manners and would do very well in a home where he has a doggy playmate. When kept on a schedule, Velox is fairly reliable with his house training and responds quickly when asked to go potty outside, though he does have occasional accidents inside. Velox sleeps in a crate at night but also loves to be invited to sleep in bed with his foster parents. For more pictures, please see his online photo album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/velox . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting this dog, 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: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    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: 14-09-10-00372Griswald (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Griswald! Griswald is a small, young adult male about 3 years old who came to us from a high kill shelter in Southern California. Griswald is about 10 pounds with long legs and chocolate coloring with a long, curling, fluffy tail. He can stand on his hind legs and do tricks very well and gets along with his kennel mates pretty good. He does have a little more of the dominate male personality, so be advised if you already have one male in the house. He does well on a leash and is kennel trained to sleep at night. We are always working with our dogs at house training but every dog will need to have ample amount of time to adjust to their ... (Read More)new home environment and schedule once adopted. If you would like to meet Griswald or any of our adoptable dogs please visit us inside Little PAWS Dog Daycare at 2905 Marvin Rd NE Lacey 98516 Griswald has tested heartworm negative,has been neutered and UTD on all shots.

Animal ID: 1008Cody (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    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 ... (Read More)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.
