Animal ID: 1605Gus (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Puppy

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Gus is a playful pup who is about 4 to 5 months old and weighs 12 lbs. It's hard to believe that he started out in foster care quite ill. But this tough little fighter didn't just survive; he started to thrive! And now he's growing into the perfect blend of snuggly and active. He loves wrestling with other dogs as long as they aren't too rough with him, and he does well in public when going on outings with his foster family and meeting new people, other dogs, and even a dog-savvy, laid-back cat. He would also do fine with older kids who respect his space. Gus is coming along great with his house training, and when kept to a careful schedule ... (Read More)and not left to wander around on his own in the house, he isn't having any accidents. However, he is still a puppy and will need consistency and careful supervision for this success to continue. Gus is going to do best in a family with a medium level of activity. Because his front legs turn out a bit, he's not going to make a good running partner or agility dog. However, he does have a great little nose, so he would love to take classes to train for the canine sport of nose work. He is super food motivated and learns quickly, so a positive training class will help him mature into the little rock star that he is destined to be. For more information about Gus, you can check out his foster family's blog at http://rescuedratties.blogspot.com and see more photos of him at http://www.imagevent.com/newrattitude/gus . ========================================================================================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: Puppy

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

    Frida's Story... Are you looking for a unique dog with a sweet, playful personality? Frida is an absolute love and we all adore her! She is a very easy dog and house trained too. She is quite and a great traveler. She stayed in a hotel for two night before her journey to Seattle without making a peep or a mess. She also was perfect on the plane. Frida is very unique looking with her white beard and beautiful markings. The CA shelter listed her as a terrier. The mix (not sure what it is) is adorable and unique! She is about 7 months old and weighs in at 9 lbs. She is currently having a blast in foster care playing with toys and running ... (Read More)around the yard. She is a very sweet and affectionate girl. She gets a lot of attention when she is out and has collected a lot of admirers at the retirement center she visits every week. People always remark how adorable she is. We are looking for a home where she can be a sister to another sweet little dog, or an only dog. We will not place her with small children under 10. Frida also takes a while to warm up to men, but she is getting better. If you are interested in meeting our adorable Frida, please contact us for an application. Her adoption fee includes: Spay, vaccinations, heart worm test and blood work, fecal testing, flea treatment, health certificate, microchip, flight to Seattle, collar, leash, halter. ADOPTION FEE: $280 Our adoption process requires an application, a meeting and a home visit. We are looking to make good matches! Sorry no out of state adoptions. We are unable to do home visits out of state. (Less)

Animal ID: 1614Martin (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Young Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Everybody loves chocolate, right? Then, you're certain to be smitten by Martin, a sweet and energetic 1-year-old chocolate Rat Terrier with a handsome tuxedo pattern. Martin bonds very quickly to new people and loves to be petted and receive belly scratches. At 15 lbs., he's the perfect size for curling up in your lap while you read a book or watch TV and for sleeping with you in your bed, where he promises not to hog the covers. However, Martin will want to be much more than just a lounging buddy. Having lots of puppy energy, he loves to play with his toys and canine foster siblings (or shoes/slippers, which he enjoys stashing in various ... (Read More)locations around the house but fortunately never chews). Needless to say, this intelligent little boy will do best in a home that can provide him with plenty of opportunities for exercise and play, and while It's not an absolute requirement (as long as his human family can meet his need for exercise and play), he would love a similar-sized playful canine brother or sister. He would also probably do best in a home without very young children since he would not want to knock over any little ones during his exuberant moments. In addition, he hopes that his new family will continue the positive training that his foster mom is providing to help him learn not to 'huff and puff' at the dogs he encounters on his daily walks. If this sensitive sweetheart is gently redirected towards the behavior you want, he will eagerly comply without losing his happy-go-lucky attitude. Martin is already extremely reliable with his house training when kept on a schedule and has only had a few accidents in his foster home. So if you're feeling a craving for chocolate, Martin is hoping that he will be that little piece you just can't resist. Please see his online photo album for more pictures http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/martin . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Martin, 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: 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.
