Animal ID: 1838Pippa (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Sweet and delicate Pippa came to New Rattitude from California, where she had been found wandering on the street, and no owners ever claimed her. She is around 2 years old and weighs 14 lbs. Being a very active pup who is still learning to feel confident in the world, Pippa would do best with a secured yard to run in. She would also benefit from obedience lessons to help her build her confidence in new situations and with new people and focus her energy into positive behaviors. Pippa's still working on perfecting her house-training skills and will need consistency to continue to be successful. She already knows how to sit for you and sleep ... (Read More)peacefully in her crate. She generally does OK riding in a car, but she will whine a bit and occasionally get car sick, most likely from nervousness. She's also currently not a big fan of taking walks and may try to run if she feels anxious, but she's working diligently with her foster family to become more comfortable out in the big world. She's hoping her new home will have another dog--one who's gentle and confident--to show her the ropes and help lessen her anxiety. Pippa's totally confident about this one thing, however--she's going to love her new family to pieces. See more photos of precious Pippa at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/pippa. ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Pippa, please go to New Rattitude's web site at http://www.NewRattitude.org/adopt.htm where there is detailed information and a link to our adoption application.

Rescue Me ID: 16-11-28-00315Ranger (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Ranger is a beloved 7 year old, 25 lb. male rat terrier mix looking for a loving home. He would do best in a home with no kids. He's neutered, chipped, up to date on shots, and given a clean bill of health at his last vet visit in the beginning of November. VERY food motivated and VERY intelligent (knows a TON of tricks including high-five, wave, dance, etc.). He would excell in agility training. Loves playing fetch and taking long walks. Is both potty trained and crate trained as well. He has a grain allergy and requires grain free food. Will come with all his vet records, harness, leash, sweaters, bed, crate, favorite toy, and what's ... (Read More)left of his dog food. Small adoption fee. (Less)

Animal ID: 756Leia (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Cats 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Leia is an active, curious 9-year-old Rat Terrier, who weighs 21 lbs. She is all terrier and loves to hunt and chase any critter that finds its way into her backyard--including kitties. A securely fenced yard is a must for this girl since she will stop at nothing to get her squirrel. But as much as she loves to hunt, she also has shown herself to be an expert snuggler. When she's inside the house, she likes to curl up on a comfy dog bed or, better yet, next to a person. She is doing great with the other dogs in her foster home but is nervous around dogs that are larger than she is, especially when she is on leash. She does better meeting ... (Read More)male dogs in general or females who aren't pushy with her. With familiar dogs, she is confident and playful. Leia is working on her house-training, and it will be important for her to consistently be given outside potty breaks for her to master this new skill. This silly spotted girl is looking for a family who loves the goofy, prey-driven temperament of a terrier. To see more photos of Leia, go to http://www.imageevent.com/newrattitude/leia or check out her foster family's blog at http://rescuedratties.blogspot.com/ . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Leia, 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.
