|Animal ID: 1754Smudge (female)|
Meet Smudge! This little black-and-white social butterfly is around 2 to 3 years of age and about 9 lbs. She has really impressed her foster parents with her quick ability to learn 'sit' and 'look' and with her leash walking skills and manners when riding in the car. Smudge is full of energy! She loves to play with her foster siblings, go for walks, and meet everyone around her. With all that energy, she'll do best in a home that provides her with lots of activity, opportunities for training, and a canine sibling to play with. Smudge is diligently working on her potty training; she is most successful when given plenty of potty breaks during the day. At night, she sleeps in a crate near her foster siblings. To see more pictures of Smudge, go to http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/smudge . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Smudge, 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: 16-05-25-00515Molly (female)|
Molly is a sweet spirited girl with beautiful eyes, about 25 lbs (guessing). When I spotted her in the shelter, she was so petrified she was on her side shivering with her legs curled up. I gave her a blanket and sat with her, which she showed her appreciation to me. I couldn't leave her there like that knowing she was on the urgent list and heart worm positive, so I grabbed her up and fostered her. She came home to 4 dogs (2 Dachshunds and 2 large dogs) which freaked her out. So I put her in a kennel in the den so she could be around the family, but she cried having the big dogs around. It was just too much after being dumped at the noisy shelter, etc. We let her adapt at her own pace which she did quickly to the Dachshunds (she likes small dogs her size, no problem) and then gradually one big dog. The other big dog got out under the fence and rushed up on her to check her out while I was walking her in the front yard. Surprised us both. Not a pretty scene. A dog trainer came over and we gave each of them treats while one leashes as they got use to each other. Now they are best friends. It can be done!!! They play hide and seek in the yard. She has had 2 heart worm injections May 2 and 3, 20 days of Doxycycline pills, 2 doses of Microfilaricide and will need to continue to take one dose every month, 6 months to a year (ask your vet). She is feeling great and if continued on the Microfilaricide she should be free of heart worms. If you have a dog at home, please let Molly adjust at her own pace.This is my main concern. If she's fearful or not sure, give her time(even 2-3 days separated in another room or crate, if necessary). She wants to fit in and cooperate. She just needs to know she can trust other dogs and she will do fine and love whatever dog you have. She has been great with all people she's been around, especially kids. She likes to jump on you for attention but that can be corrected easily and we have spoiled her letting her get on one of the couches, but she does likes the dog bed. We feed her the Costco brand 'Kirkland Chicken, Veggies, small dog' premium food, about a cup or 1 /14 c twice a day with water on it. I would love to know where and who the lucky adopters are that take Molly home for my own peace of mind. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Phone 817-913-2522. I'm on Facebook, Deborah Haller. Would love to received pics of Molly in her new home and know how she is progressing in her new environment. (Less)

|Animal ID: 1753Sherlock (male)|
It's certainly no mystery that Sherlock would make an ideal addition to just about any household. This fun, spunky 2-year-old 14-lb. Type B, or Teddy, Rat Terrier mix loves meeting new people and gets along with everybody, including kids of all ages. He also enjoys playing with other dogs, especially if they will chase him, but he doesn't much care for cats and likes to bark at them to tell them to go away. Sherlock has never seen a toy he didn't like and can entertain himself with them, but he will also love playing fetch with you. While he is energetic and playful, he'll love snuggling next to you for a nap too and would never say no to a good belly rub if you are willing. He is crate trained and working on his house training, and he is doing great on a schedule. If you'd like to learn more about Sherlock, investigate his daily antics at http://yapitude.blogspot.com and see additional pictures at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude . After that, Sherlock says it's all elementary. Just apply to adopt him! ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Sherlock, 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: 1752Mochi (female)|
Mochi is a sweet and friendly 18-month-old Rat Terrier/Cattle Dog mix. Currently about 39 lbs., she's that great but rare truly medium-size dog. After she loses some excess weight, she will be a svelte, tall girl and about 35 lbs.--just right! Mochi's motto is 'girls just want to have fun!' and she lives up to that. She's looking for an active household that will appreciate her energetic, outgoing personality. She loves other dogs (although some dogs are not as in love with her playfulness). As much as she loves dogs, she loves people even more and is friendly with all she meets. While she would do great with older children, her exuberance would be overwhelming to kids under 5 or 6 years of age. Mochi is just starting basic training and has proven to be a smart girl. With regular trips outside, she has been doing great with her house training but will continue to need close supervision and frequent trips outside until her skill is strengthened. She's enthusiastic about her positive training sessions and clearly loves the learning process since it means she gets to be with her person and to have that big brain of hers engaged. We can see her being a fun partner in dog sports such as agility, flyball, K9 Nose Work, or Treibball. You can follow Mochi on her foster mom's blog at http://rescuedratties.blogspot.com or see more photos of her at http://www.imageevent.com/newrattitude/mochi . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Mochi, 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: 16-04-12-00302Leo (male)|
I have owned Leo since he was 8 weeks old. My current situation is forcing me to find a new home for him. He is crate aggressive, meaning, if a stranger comes near his crate while he is in it, he will protect his 'home'. He does not like to come out of it much as that is his bed and he prefers to eat in it as well. He is very sweet, gets along pretty well with other dogs and cats, and is pretty low key. He was attacked and severely injured by another dog several years ago, so he will react if any aggressiveness is shown towards him, especially from a male dog. He is super sweet and loves to be loved on.

|Animal ID: 1644Rediviva (female)|
Are you looking for an amazing companion? Do you have a large fenced yard or live in a rural area? If so, look no further! Sweet Rediviva would love to share the quiet outdoor life with you, as she is not a city gal. Weighing 20 lbs., this 5-year-old beauty is house trained, and with her wonderful house manners, she's a joy to have around. She knows a number of cues like 'sit ' and 'go to mat,' and while she loves to look for critters outside, she's extremely calm indoors. She won't get under your feet or demand attention. She'll be happy to curl up next to you while you're watching TV or reading a book. Rediviva is also a fun-loving goofy girl, who enjoys playing with her toys and will constantly give you a reason to smile. Affectionate and loyal, Rediviva will thrive in an environment where she has her person with her most of the time and where she can feel safe without kids, cats, or high-energy, 'pushy' dogs, all of which are stressful to her. (She would be OK with a calm, low-key dog.) Rediviva is a wonderful girl, who is wishing for her very own forever home. Intrigued by this gorgeous girl? Then check out her photo album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/rediviva and her foster mom's blog at http://cattierattie.blogspot.com . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Rediviva, 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.
