|Animal ID: 0779Sybil (female)|
Darling Sybil is a 3-year old Rat Terrier-Chihuahua mix. She weighs about 10 lbs. and has long legs that she uses for running very fast when she is kicking up her heels in her foster parents' yard. Sybil is super smart. She loves to cuddle in her person's lap as well as going for walks, hikes, and car rides. She enjoys going visiting, especially if it means more attention from people who adore her. She lives harmoniously with her foster fur siblings but is much more interested in human companionship than dog companionship. She is sweet and silly and can be a little anxious at times, too. With a stable environment and routine, she will most certainly settle right down. She would do well in a home where her person is around a good portion of the time. She is doing very well in her house training when kept on a schedule. She sleeps quietly in her crate at night but would love to sleep in bed with her person. She rides quietly in her crate in the car or in the seat with a seat belt/harness clip. Her foster home has a cat and although she is interested in the cat at times, she takes direction very well from her foster mom to 'leave the kitty alone.'

|Animal ID: 1287Stella (female)|
Stella is a 1-year old sweetheart who weighs 13 lbs. She loves being around people and is sweet and gentle with kids. She loves to play and run around, but is just as happy enjoying a good snuggle. She gets along well with other dogs, but finds herself nervous around cats. She is progressing well with her crate training and house training and has just started using a doggie door on her own.

|Animal ID: 1268Timken (male)|
Handsome Timken is a 12-lb., 1.5 year old Rat Terrier who is skilled at wriggling his way into his people's hearts. Timken has been working very hard on learning how to trust the humans in his life and he blossoms each day with baby steps toward a more confident self. His house training skills are a work in progress and will need continued patience. Tim has learned that he loves to go for walks on leash as long as he can be where there is not too much loud traffic or sudden noises while he learns that he is safe in his surroundings. He is beginning to experiment with toys and has been caught doing the rattie shake from time to time. Although Tim gets along with his canine foster siblings, he would do best as an only dog or with a very calm, balanced fur sibling. He sleeps quietly in his crate at night and he rides quietly in his crate in the car. Because Timken is very unsure in settings where there are quick movements or loud noises, he would do best in a quiet home with a fenced yard, and he needs to go to a home with no cats and no kids. His people will need the patience to let him come into his own on his own time schedule and understand his need for going very slowly. In return, he will reward them with kisses and cuddling and his silly self. His photo album can be seen at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/timken, and you can get to know him better by checking out his foster mom's blog at http://wulfgrl-mydogblog.blogspot.com/. ================================================If you are interested in adopting this dog, please go to New Rattitude's website at http://NewRattitude.org/adopt.htm, where there is detailed information and a link to our adoption application.

|Animal ID: 1008Cody (male)|
My name is Cody. I am a 6-year old, 15-lb. fellow on a journey to find my perfect permanent home. Before coming to foster care, I lived outdoors or isolated in a shelter, so this whole thing about sharing my life with humans has been a bit of a challenge. Sometimes touch can be a little scary for me and I need to move away, but my foster mom has been working with me and teaching me that it can be comforting to be touched. So I'll tell you what feels best to me, and I love to ask for your affection. My favorite way to share affection is to curl up beside you on the couch and relax, and I will frequently come over and ask for kisses and pets. I don't believe I could live with children or in a home where children are often present, due to their grabby hands. But I'm fine with adults and I'm familiar with a leash and would love to take walks or ride in the car with you. I am 100% house trained now and can reliably be left loose in the house if you need to go somewhere without me. I ride in my crate in the car and sleep in another crate at night, but if you want me to sleep at the foot of your bed, I am totally up for that. I enjoy playing with balls, and of course 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 willing to continue to school me in canine etiquette, or I could live as a single dog. But no disrespectful or rambunctious roomies, please! Because I can get kinda noisy when I get over-stimulated, I probably wouldn't be well suited for apartment or condo living, and a less busy environment would help keep my stress level minimized. My foster Mom has this fun on-line 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 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.

|Animal ID: 1146Chima (female)|
Sweet tempered, gorgeous, 2-year old Chima is looking for a loving family who will be patient while she learns to trust them, and in return she will show them her playful, goofy personality. She loves to chase after her toys and when she catches them she always give them the old 'terrier shakedown' to make sure they are sufficiently dead. Other favorite activities are rolling around on soft blankets with a toy or chewing on a bone. When kept on a potty schedule, Chima hasn't had accidents in her foster home and with continued careful crate training she should be fully house trained in no time. Likely never having lived in a house before her rescue, this 23-lb. girl is wary of touch and needs to slowly accustom herself to a new situation before she relaxes. She gains confidence by having other dogs around so another dog who is a similar size would be a real plus for Chima, helping her feel at home and able to relax more quickly. Even though she does have some fear, she is not at all snappy and just prefers to watch from a distance until she feels comfortable. Chima lives to hunt for critters in the back yard, although so far she hasn't had real success in catching anything. That's okay with her since all the fun is in the chase. A secure fence and outdoor supervision will be required to keep her from getting into trouble when her strong prey drive kicks in. Chima has already mastered 'sit' and the cue 'touch' in her foster home. Her ideal home will have calm, even tempered humans who are willing to let her take things at her chosen pace without force. Ideally the home's activity level would be pretty laid back, without young kids. Once she's more settled she'd love to get outside for hikes and other fun activities. If you are willing to let Chima decide when it's time to welcome you into her terrier-ific world, she will pay you back tenfold with her ability to make you laugh and her playful spirit.

Federal Way, WA 98023 MAP IT!
|Animal ID: 1145Salinas (female)|
This 2- to 3-year old sweet girl weighs about 16 lbs. and is the queen of kisses! Salinas is kind of shy when first meeting new people but given some time and space she'll be giving kisses and squirming herself up onto a lap for pats in no time. One thing to know about Sal is that she really needs to have a dog buddy around to feel safe and comfortable. We've noticed in foster care that she can feel a bit panicky when she is alone but when another dog is crated next to her, she settles right down. And outside she is anxious when alone, but if another dog is out with her, she relaxes and is playful and ready for fun. She is like a different dog when a buddy is there for her to follow! Sal is proving to be a smart girl, and because she is so focused on her humans and is food motivated, she picks things up amazingly fast. So far she has learned 'sit,' 'down,' 'off,' 'touch,' and 'spin.'She is doing great with house training; if she gets lots of potty breaks and praise for eliminating outside, accidents can be avoided. She is still learning, though, so will need someone willing to continue to help her to master this skill. Careful supervision and crate training should help her continue this success with her new family. While Miss Salinas wouldn't be described as a barker, when she is anxious about being alone in a crate she will bark for a bit, so her best bet is going to be a house without shared walls where she can work through her initial transition period without bothering condo neighbors. So are you ready to look down and see those big brown eyes looking up in awe and adoration?

|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.
