|Animal ID: 1567Pepper (female)|
Pepper is a sweet 3-year-old female with a laid-back attitude. At 16 lbs., she is working on slimming down in foster care, but even with a few extra pounds, she is just the right size for curling up with you when you read a book or watch TV. This mellow girl likes playing gently with her toys but most of all enjoys taking it easy with her foster parents. Pepper bonds very quickly to new people and wants all of their attention. Pepper would likely do well with children, especially children who want to pet her gently. A medium-energy dog, Pepper enjoys taking short daily walks around the neighborhood and chasing her foster sister in the backyard. She would do well in a home where she has a doggy playmate, or she would be just as happy being an only dog. When kept on a schedule, Pepper is reliable with her house training, though she does have occasional accidents inside. She always does her business quickly when taken outside and then likes to make her rounds of the whole backyard. Pepper sleeps in a crate at night but would happily join you in bed, if you'd like. Please see her online photo album for more pictures at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/pepper . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Pepper, 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: 1563Elliot (male)|
Elliot is a sweet-natured and easygoing Chihuahua/Rat Terrier mix, who is very tiny at 8 lbs. and is approximately 1 year old. He can be timid at first until he feels comfortable, but fortunately that doesn't take very long at all! Once he has settled in, he is a busy and curious little guy. Elliot loves squeaky balls and cow hooves or anything he can chew on and he loves to drag around small blankets, even pulling the blankets out of his kennel to lie on. He is gentle and gets along with all his four-legged foster siblings. Elliot likes to lie in his kennel when his foster mom is close by but is just learning to feel comfortable being crated when his people are out on errands. Elliot is working on his house training skills and will sometimes let you know on his own when he wants to go out. He does great on a leash and loves going for walks in the sunshine. If you're looking for a companion to cuddle in your lap, Elliot would fit right in--literally! For more information, see Elliot's online photo album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/elliot . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Elliot, 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: 1562Rigby (male)|
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 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.

|Rescue Me ID: 15-02-28-00274Harry (Spotter) (male)|
We got Harry and his sister last year after our other dog died. It was a terrible mistake as we also have 1 year old twins. We do not have the time to put into two little dogs. We also heard we should never get a brother/sister pair as they don't bond with the family as well. He has occasionally nipped the twins (not enough to make them cry). He also bit a neighbor kid who walked into the house unannounced.He would be best in a family with older kids. He is a very sweet dog and potty-trained- with an accident now and again. He is also crate-trained. He loves to curl up on your lap and sleep in your bed if you let him. He loves his people.Harry is almost a year old and is a chihuahua/ terrier mix. (Less)

|Rescue Me ID: 14-12-20-00338burt (male)|
Burt is a very loving and loyal dog. He just needs a lot more time and love then we are able to give him. He has separation issues. He needs the company of a human or another animal. He likes to dig. We want a good home for him not asking for money just love. :-) Also he is a purebred just not papered.

|Animal ID: 1008Cody (male)|
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 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.
