Animal ID: 1484Tuttle (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Young Adult

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

    Sweet Tuttle is a 1-year old, 13-lb. fun-loving boy with the short little legs characteristic of a Type B, or Teddy, Rat Terrier. He's playful and goofy and still very much a puppy in his mannerisms. He has a silky, soft, chocolaty coat and beautiful hazel eyes that are always taking things in and trying to decide what his next adventure will be. When he visits the pet store with his foster mom, he has enjoyed meeting new people and kids but is a bit shy at first. Of course he is quickly won over by treats and a good scratch. He's young and is still learning training basics. His foster family is working with him, and he's doing great with ... (Read More)his house training using the crate training method and a frequent schedule for potty breaks. His loose-leash walking is coming along well too. Because he's very intelligent and treat motivated, he would do great in a training class using positive reinforcement. While Tuttle loves kitties because they are such great fun to chase, kitties do not love Tuttle, so he would do best in a cat-free home. He also loves playing with other dogs but can be a little over excited when first meeting them, so he needs to be introduced to them slowly so that they don't get irritated with him. Tuttle would love a home with people who appreciate him for the smart little terrier that he is and who love outdoor adventures as much as he does. Are you looking for a walking partner who is equally as comfortable settling in for a cuddle at the end of the day? Then look no further because Tuttle is your man. You can find more photos of Tuttle at www.imageevent.com/newrattitude/tuttle or follow him on his foster mom's blog at www.rescuedratties.blogspot.com . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Tuttle, 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: 14-09-21-00338Dakota (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Neutered 

    This little guy is Dakota. He is a 2 year old pug/chi mix who was an owner surrender. Dakota came in with his sister who has since been adopted and now it's Dakotas turn to find his forever home. Dakota, though small has a huge personality and makes adorable sounds. He is very expressive in his face, and vocally. If you are looking for a goofy guy to be your constant companion, he is perfect! He loves people (including children) and is very food motivated. He wants to be by your side or on your lap all the time. He loves giving kisses! Dakota is a very submissive easy going guy and although he is a little bit nervous he has never been ... (Read More)aggressive. Every day he is in foster care he comes out of his shell a bit more. Currently Dakota is living in a foster home with a Great Dane and a Beagle and doing very well with them. He has also been around a lab, and some additional small dogs, who played well with him. He loves the company of other dogs. He met the resident dog savvy cat and barked at him a bit, but didn't chase and was not aggressive what so ever. Slightly scared of him in fact. He was initially afraid of car rides, but has slowly been warming up to the idea. He loves hiking and sniffing around in unfamiliar areas. He walks well on leash and isn't a huge puller and did well off leash when we tried it because he wants to be near you. He knows, and responds to his name. He is coming along with potty training and has only had one potty accident in his foster home so far (knock on wood.) Dakota is kennel trained, and not destructive though he does love to have toys to chew on. He gets along well with kids of all ages, and is learning 'off' 'come' and 'sit.'

Rescue Me ID: 14-09-21-00114Annie (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Annie was adopted a year and half ago from New Rattitude, unfortunately due to serious health issues my dad is unable to care for her. She is very sweet and loving. She loves kids and would make a great companion. She is very smart and trains easily. It does take her a day to get used to other dogs, but once familiar becomes best friends. I believe she is around 2-3 years old.

Rescue Me ID: 14-09-18-00203Bailey (female)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Very Low Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Deaf 

    Bailey's family lost their home and is unable to care for her any longer. She has never been around cats, but has lived with other small/medium dogs and has done fine as long as she is allowed to be the dominate female in the group. She is happy to just hang out and be a lap dog. She is house broken, crate trained, and does well on a leash. She does fine with older children and adults. She is not on any medications. She is somewhat deaf so will not return when called since she can't hear you.

Animal ID: 1478Ratz (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

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

    Ratz was surrendered to New Rattitude after her owner died, and now this super sweet, timid 13-lb. 8-year-old is looking for someone to love and to love her back. She's an easy-to-please sort--a quiet household where she can curl up on a couch or sofa and sleep the day away would be just fine. But resting is not her only interest! Ratz has taken agility classes in the past and is currently enjoying going to the park to engage both her mind and body in an activity called 'pupkour,' a doggie version of parkour (and that one you will have to look up on your own!) She also loves to take walks and is learning not to pull on her leash. She is very ... (Read More)food motivated, so she's an eager student, who expects to have mastered loose-leash walking in no time at all. Ratz gets along with her small Chi-Terrier foster sibling and with most dogs and people she meets on her walks, but she can be reactive to sudden noise and movement. Startling her could cause her to nip, so her adopting household should not include cats, very young or active children, or any other critters prone to quick, erratic motion. In fact, this undemanding young lady would be perfectly happy to be an only dog, and since she is fully house trained, can 'hold it' for nine-plus hours, and is quiet except when unannounced strangers arrive, Ratz would even fit well into an urban lifestyle. You can see more pictures of this cutie in her online album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/ratz . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Ratz, 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: 1460Plum (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Young Adult

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

    Playful Plum, a 6-month-old, 5-lb. Rat Terrier mix, is a little clown who will keep you in stitches with her puppy antics! This high-energy girl loves to be wherever her people are or in the backyard playing with toys or her foster brother. If it is sunny outside, she loves to sniff the air or go on walks around the neighborhood. She likes meeting new people and makes friends wherever she goes. Plum is very smart, catching on to training quickly, and is fairly reliable with her potty training when she is kept on a schedule. She has also become a master at getting around, over, or under baby gates, so she will need a home that will keep her ... (Read More)active terrier self busy and would do best in a home where she has a similar-sized doggy playmate to run and wrestle with. She sleeps in a crate at night, but like so many Ratties, Plum would never turn down an invitation to join her humans in bed. Plum will be spayed at the end of September and will be ready to go to her new home after that. See more of this plum of a pup in her online photo album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/plum . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Plum, 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.

Rat Terrier    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Morty is a sweet and loving 18 month old Rat Terrier. He is high energy! He is house trained, and can use a doggy door! Morty is not an alpha dog, and would love to have a home with other dogs to play with, but he would be happiest with a person to teach him better manners and play fetch! If you have what it takes to own a terrier for a lifetime, please contact me. Morty would love to go to a new home asap!

Rescue Me ID: 14-08-11-00201Trixie (female)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Personality: Average Energy 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Darling Trixie was one of 15 little dogs left abandoned in a vacant house and when we rescued them, they were all very scared and unsocialized. Trixie was pregnant so was one of those most scared of her new surroundings and new people. But now that she's had her babies and and all are adopted, she's ready to find her own, wonderful forever home. She is a bit shy when first meeting but with a few treats and gentle petting, she quickly becomes a very sweet, affectionate girl. Trixie is about 2yrs old and weighs about 11lbs. She does not need a fenced backyard as long as she has plenty of long walks and inside playtime. She's great with ... (Read More)other dogs but does not need another in the home. Because she can still be a bit shy with new people, children must be over 12yrs old. (Less)

Animal ID: 1447Seven (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

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

    Are you looking for a fun-loving, active buddy? If so, stop your search right now! My name is Seven, and I'm a 3- to 4-year-old, 14.5-lb. Rat Terrier mix. Don't let my size fool you into thinking that I can't handle physical stuff. I'm one sturdy little boy, who loves to go on walks and has great leash skills. I can easily walk 10 miles, and a hike is, well, just beyond amazing for me! When people stop and say hi, it's great since I love people! I do get a bit excited when I see other dogs on leash, so my foster mom is helping me to dial back my excitement. I'm also working on my house training, and with a reliable schedule, I know I'll get ... (Read More)it down quickly. I'm doing well with crate training, especially when I get awesome stuff to keep me busy in my crate. Since I do like to hunt critters, it would be best for everyone if I didn't live with cats. My great terrier personality and antics keep my foster parents grinning, but I really want to bring the smiles to my very own people in a forever home. So stop your looking and look me up on my foster mom's blog at http://cattierattie.blogspot.com or on my personal photo/video album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/seven .========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Seven, 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: 14-05-31-00009Mona (female)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Not Good with Cats, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed 

    She is a rat terrier with some healer but did not see heeler as an option. She needs to ONLY be with other submissive dogs, cannot be with cats or chickens and we guess NOT good with other critters as well. What did you expect with a rat terrier! lol. She is a sweet higher energy 22 pound female young dog. She loves humans but unless you have no other dogs or only submissive dogs she would not be the right fit for you. Our dogs must be pre adopted as we do not have the fosters here to care for them. You talk to the rescue that has the dog and there is a trial basis. If she is not the right fit, then you simply foster her until we find her ... (Read More)the right fit, which shouldn't take but a few weeks at most. She loves humans and would make a good lap dog if she could sit still long enough!!! gingerdog@live.com 2 references please not relatives . Our dogs come up pre adopted, with of course a 10 day trial period just in case. No one has returned a puppy but we want an excellent fit. (Less)

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 me. I ... (Read More)especially love my head, neck, and chest 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. 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 100% 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, 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 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, but if you live in a small, quieter complex then I would do fine there or in a house. My foster mom set up a 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 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.

Animal ID: 1145Salinas (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

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

    This 4- to 5-year-old sweet girl weighs about 16 lbs. and is a joy to be around! Always full of kisses, Salinas loves people, but she can be shy, so she's looking for a laid-back home with people who don't mind letting her take her time to relax if something scares her. If they give her that time, then in return she'll provide lots of snuggling services and lap warming. Sal is a very smart girl and because she is so focused on her humans and is food motivated, she picks things up amazingly fast. She has completed a clicker dog training course and knows all the basics plus some cute tricks. In addition, she is doing great with house training ... (Read More)as long as she is kept on a potty schedule. When it's time to play, Salinas usually chooses to play with toys by herself rather than wrestling with another dog. Nevertheless, she actually seems more confident with other dogs around (as long as they don't push her to play), and outside she is like a different dog when a canine buddy is there. Because she is very much a terrier in her desire to hunt critters, a securely fenced yard is important, and kitties would not want to share a space with her. While Miss Sal isn't really 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 so that she can adjust to her new home without bothering condo neighbors. So are you looking to be adored? Wanting to look down and see those big brown eyes looking up in wonder and awe? Then this sweet, beautiful dog just might be the girl for you. You can see more photos and a video of Salinas at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/salinas . ================================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Salinas, 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.
