Animal ID: 1615Magill (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Puppy

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

    Magill is a 5-month old, 9-lb. little guy who is as energetic as he is cute. He enjoys tearing around, wrestling, chasing critters, and playing with toys of any type. He is all about having fun and loves to hang out with his people and other dogs. He does get excited and like to 'talk' when he plays so a home without shared walls will be best. Kitties probably would not appreciate him since he loves to chase and is already showing himself to have a big prey drive. Confidence is not an issue with this boy, and as long as his person is there to provide support he's willing to try just about anything. Another plus is that he is very smart, so ... (Read More)this guy needs an adopter who is willing to keep his brain busy as well as his body. Being smart also means he is doing great working on his house training but since he's a puppy will need continuing training with this. He would undoubtedly really do great in a positive reinforcement puppy class, going on to be great at things like agility or trick classes. His combination of smarts, activity, and attentiveness to people gives him great potential for a person who enjoys learning new sports with their dogs. Magill is looking for a home that will appreciate and nurture his active and inquisitive nature. He's a big personality and a full load of cuteness in a little package. To learn more about Magill you can check out his foster mom's blog at www.rescuedratties.blogspot.com or see more photos at www.imageevent.com/newrattitude/magill . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Magill, 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: 1607Frieda (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Young Adult

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

    Fun is what Frieda is all about! Approximately 1 year old and 14 lbs. with beautiful blue-and-white coloring and long, long legs, this little Rattie is full of life. Frieda is an active girl who loves to run and chase the ball and gets along with all dogs and people alike. (In fact, she is hoping that her new home will have a fur sibling to play tug-of war or wrestle with.) Being barely more than a pup, Frieda has all sorts of puppy-like behaviors. She loves toys and bones and looks adorable carrying one around with her wherever she goes, but also like a typical youngster, Frieda loves to jump and grab at clothing and hands. Frieda's foster ... (Read More)mom is helping her learn to keep paws on the floor and to sit and stay down. Because loud noises frighten her, Frieda is also working on her 'big girl' confidence, and this intelligent girl learns so quickly that she has already come a long way in just a few weeks. Likewise, her house training skills are a work in progress, but she is showing great improvement by being taken out on a regular schedule. Lovable, cuddly, and curious, Frieda will entertain and keep you company, and if you offer her patience and training, she will reward you by growing into the perfect companion. For more photos of Frieda, please visit http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/Frieda . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Frieda, 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: 15-05-17-00626Scarlett (female)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Puppy

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Scarlet is a beautiful female puppy...about 4 1/2 mos old. She is a Chihuahua. She's a fun-loving, happy dog and would be great in a household without taking up much room. She and another small dog were "owner surrenders" from Port Arthur, Texas. Because they were surrenders, the pound there was about to put them down, when some crazy dog lady rescuer contacted me and asked If I could take them (I'm in San Antonio 300 miles away) if she could get them to me. I was impressed with the dedication! These 2 plus 7 others got shipped from Port Arthur to Houston...handed over to another lady willing to transport...then on to me! ... (Read More)They are currently in San Antonio with frequent transports available to the GNW. If they are pre-adopted, they will be on the next available transport. They are now 4mos old, vaccinated, dewormed, spayed, and just absolutely gorgeous pups. She is not housetrained yet. Adoption Fee: $350. This includes all the medical, health certificate for travel, and all transportation costs. If you are interested, please text me your e-mail and I will send you more info and an application form. You can also request a very short video of these two terrier/chi mixed puppies We couldn't load it on here but can send in an email. Terry Wheeler PetCentral SATX San Antonio, TX 210-394-6060 (Less)

Animal ID: 1604Baer (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

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

    Are you looking for a fun-loving companion with the perfect balance of maturity and energy? If so, you can stop your search right here! I'm Baer (pronounced Bear), and my foster parents fell in love with me almost immediately. I'm an 8- to 9-year-old male Rat Terrier. Don't be fooled--for a Rat terrier, 8 or 9 is when we start to hit our stride. I can still go and go...and go. I do love walks and have very good leash skills. My foster mom and I have walked for 7 miles or more, and I didn't miss a step! But I'm also fine with spending the whole day curled up at her feet. I'm a handsome guy, and when I'm out on a walk, people often stop to say ... (Read More)hi--which is a great thing because I LOVE people. My foster parents say that I'm one of the most human-focused dogs that they've fostered. I get along fine with other dogs, but they don't excite me the same way that people do. Now, squirrels excite me, too, but in a whole different way. I like to chase them, so it would probably be best for everyone if I don't live with any cats or other small pets that I might be inclined to pursue. In foster care, I've proven to be reliably house trained when kept on a schedule. I'm so attached to my human family that it's best for me to live in a home where someone is around most of the day because I hate being left alone. But, then, with my great terrier personality, who could 'Baer' to leave me alone, right? I keep a grin on my foster parents' faces with my adorable antics. I'm a super sweet 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/baer. ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Baer, 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: 15-05-05-00762Buddy (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    This is one of the most adorable dogs we've ever had! He's about 9 pounds, 4 years old, and a very sweet, shy boy. As you can see from this photo, he loves his toys. He must have another dog in the home -- preferably a playful, maternal, bossy female. He'd love to have a cat or two as well. Older children please due to his small size and shy nature. More photos available but this site only allows us to post one. Hopefully I picked the right one to get his his new parents to contact us!

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

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

    I don't mean to brag, but my foster mom says I am the sweetest, easiest boy ever. I love to snuggle on the couch with her and don't mind that the other dogs are hanging around with me. As long as they're not being pushy or rude to me, I'm fine with them. In fact, I really need to have canine buddies around.Foster mom says I get kind of nervous without my doggie friends; they help me to show my mellow, laid-back side. As for cats? Well, I can't say they are my favorite, and I prefer to steer clear of them. Older kids are OK, but I'm not a fan of babies and toddlers who tend to get in my face and lurch around too much for my taste. My ... (Read More)favorite pastime, other than snuggling with my person, is playing tug. I need to know the person first before I feel ready to play, but once I do, watch out! I'm a master. At 9 years old, I'm old enough to be fairly chill but still terrier enough to be ready for any adventure. And 9 is pretty middle-aged for a Rat Terrier. Check me out! I don't even have any gray on my face! And unlike young whippersnappers, I've got some skills under my belt. Once I know where I'm supposed to go and you keep me on a schedule for a bit, I do great at house training. I also know some basics like 'sit,' 'down,' and 'stay.' I weigh about 22 lbs., so I'm not so tiny that you'll step on me but small enough to squeeze in next to you on the armchair to warm your lap. If you are as smitten with my handsomeness as my foster mom is, read more about me, Rigby, on her blog at http://www.rescuedratties.blogspot.com or see more photos of me at http://www.imageevent.com/newrattitude/rigby . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Rigby, 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.
