|Animal ID: 1391Colbie (female)|
Colbie is a 1-1/2 year old, 9-lb. Rat Terrier who loves to spend time with her people and having her neck scratched. This sweet girl is a medium energy dog who just wants to be wherever the people are. But she also enjoys spending time with the other dogs in her foster home, especially playing in the backyard with her foster brother, and she would do very well in a home where she has a doggie playmate. If it is sunny outside, she loves to sniff the air and spend time exploring. Colbie has not had any accidents in her foster home and responds quickly when asked to 'go potty.' She sleeps in a crate at night; however, she would much rather sleep in bed with her foster parents. Colbie likes meeting new people but she is initially shy and will usually flatten to the ground when being petted, even though her tail will continue to wag. She loves to have her neck scratched and will put her paws up on your leg when she wants your attention. She also enjoys curling up with you when you watch TV or read a book. She has not met any children but she would probably do fine if her boundaries are respected and they move slowly since she can be skittish with quick movements. She has not been tested with cats. Colbie bonds very quickly to new people and enjoys making friends wherever she goes! Please see her online photo album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/colbie . ================================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Colbie, 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: 14-04-09-00446Jack (male)|
[Read About Natural Seizure Care] We are so sad to be seeking a new home for Jack. We rescued him in 2008, when he was 5 years old, and he has been our best friend. However, we now have a child, a very active toddler, and Jack is afraid of her, which makes him aggressive (barking, growling, showing teeth). To keep both of them safe, we don't want to take any chances. We hope you can help. Jack loves to snuggle, sleep, take walks, look out the window, have his belly rubbed, and snuggle some more. He is fine with other dogs - we have a large female rescue dog as well - but because of his age, he doesn't like to play much. And he has his peculiarities: he is stressed and frightened by young children, mail carriers and other delivery people, and riding in cars, and he has a history of mild seizures. He is on fluoxetine (for anxiety) and zonisamide (for seizures), and if it would help his future family, we would be willing to help cover the cost of his medication indefinitely. We really love this guy and are devastated to make this choice, but he doesn't need a toddler grabbing at him all the time. He needs a calmer, more consistent life than we can give him right now.

|Animal ID: 1386Bella (female)|
Bella is a beautiful 2-year old, 18-lb. Rat Terrier who is a friendly, playful girl loving to cuddle and snuggle. She is a social girl that hasn't found anyone she doesn't like. Bella has a sweet, playful disposition and is comfortable around both men and women. She also loves to play with her 10-year old human roommate and seems to light up when he comes in the room. She is young and still has some puppyish mannerisms, such as liking to chew on your fingers, but is learning that toys are more appropriate. Bella is interested in cats and wants to be friends. She is starting to learn to play fetch, and she loves all types of toys -- especially squeaky ones. She loves to play chase with her roommates and will play until she is so tired she has to take a nap. She loves cuddling and kissing anyone and everyone. She is very good on a leash and will walk with you wherever you go; she does love the neighborhood smells and wants to check them all out along the way. She is working on her house training, including working knowledge of the doggie door, but needs a schedule with reminders to go so she doesn't forget. She is working on crate training and doesn't mind sleeping in the crate at night. She is also working on basic commands with clicker training and is reward-driven, which should make her training easy to continue in her new home! Learn more about Bella on her foster family's Website, http://GigHarborRatties.com/Bella and to see more photos of her, visit her on-line photo album at http://ImageEvent.com/newrattitude/Bella. ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Bella, 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: 1388Torii (female)|
Sweet Torii's life was turned upside down when the only owner she had ever known surrendered her after 12 years together! Try to imagine having to build a completely new life for yourself in middle age and you may better understand Torii's Alice in Wonderland reaction. This 14-lb. girl is slowly growing out of her shock and loss but hasn't reached a trusting place yet. She is not ready to be picked up but does like to be near people. She will jump on the couch to sit near her foster parents and is then comfortable with touch to her neck area. Torii crates wonderfully at night, is not reactive on a leash, is not a barker, handles stairs with ease, and loves interactive toys and bully sticks. She also seems to enjoy being around other dogs if they are not hyperactive. Torii does not potty in the house if taken out every five hours or so during the day. She may be house trained, in fact, but is still too uncertain about her new environment to be accident-free when left alone longer than that. Torii's ideal adoptive home would be calm and peaceful without kids who might chase or grab her. An adopter willing to take her on the walks she loves could help her shed a pound or two to reach a healthy weight. What Torii wants most of all, though, is a home with predictability, security, and safety, and the promise of never having to leave. To learn more about Torii, check out her foster mom's blog at http://cattierattie.blogspot.com and you can also see her personal album with videos and pictures at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/torii. ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Torii, 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: 1377Royal (male)|
Royal is a 4-year old, 16-lb. Rat Terrier sporting classic good looks. He is fit and athletic, great on a leash, and would be an excellent running partner. Royal is good with other dogs and would enjoy a canine playmate but thinks cats are something to hunt. Super smart Royal has already learned some basic cues in his foster home. This is likely Royal's first experience of living in a house, so it's going to take him longer to learn to live with indoor noises and human movements. Because of this, Royal would do best in a quiet home without children. Royal will require patient adopters willing to continue working with him to earn his trust and nurture his self-confidence. While Royal wouldn't be called a barker, he's anxious about being alone in a crate, he will bark for a bit so his best bet is going to be a house without shared walls, where he can work through his initial transition period without bothering condo neighbors. Royal continues to work on house training so he will need someone willing to continue to help him to master this skill. Overall Royal is a very sweet dog who is going to make a wonderful companion once he settles into his permanent home! To read more about Royal you can check out his foster mom's blog at http://cattierattie.blogspot.com and to see photos and video, please visit his personal photo album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/royal. ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting this dog, 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: 14-03-12-00490Ziggy (male)|
TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE!!! Ziggy is a papered, sable & white, 4 Y/O, male, UKC/AKC registrable - pedigreed - Fire Mountain Rat Terrier. Fire Mountain Rats are an out cross of the Decker Grand Rat Terrier, making them somewhat smaller than a Decker Rat, but much studier than a common standard. They live, on average for 20 years, which makes Ziggy in his prime at just 4. He is in excellent health and has been very loved! Ziggy has AMAZING confirmation and is perfect for breeding. He has a wonderful disposition, but does not get along with his younger brother. His half brother, Kodiak and he fight continually, making it impossible to keep both males any longer. His brother, Kodiak is from the same father, but a different mother and poor Kodiak has a number of behavior issues, which, likely makes him un-adoptable. We love both dogs and do not want to see either destroyed or mistreated. Ziggy is an amazing dog!!! We paid over $600.00 for him from one of the areas top breeders, Rodeo Rat Dog Kennels, and retained breeding rights, but only want to see him in a loving home. For this reason, we have chosen to part with Ziggy, as he is VERY ADOPTABLE, handsome, young, has a sweet disposition, well behaved, house broken, and loveable. Please contact me if you are interested. Only to a proven GOOD home. We will not ship him! Anyone interested must come to our location in Lake Stevens. Please bring proof of residence. (Less)

|Animal ID: 1364Sylvia (female)|
Sylvia is a 6-month old, 8-lb. bundle of love. She is a superior snuggler who enjoys cuddling next to you on the sofa while you rub her ears. Although Sylvia seeks attention from humans and likes to be touched, she does require a slow, calm introduction to new people, places, and things. She is a little afraid of the cat in her foster home and although curious about the other dogs, has not engaged in play with them yet. Occasionally she will forget her fears and act like the puppy she is, frolicking in the snow or executing rattie runs in the fenced yard. Despite her unease in the house, she appears to be mostly potty trained and will go to the door to let you know she needs to go out. Sylvia quietly sleeps through the night in her kennel and has proven to be an excellent car traveler. |A quiet, calm home with patient people willing to help Sylvia develop confidence at her own pace would be ideal, preferably without young children, whose fast pace makes her very nervous.Come see more of her daily antics at her foster mom's blog at http://yapitude.blogspot.com and check out her photo album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/sylvia. ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Sylvia, 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.

Jasper loves long walks and is very good on a leash. He likes cuddling on the couch, but is also good at being by himself. He takes a while to warm up to strangers, and would need an adult only home with someone who is a more experienced dog owner. He is comfortable using a dog door.

|Animal ID: 1008Cody (male)|
My name is Cody. I am a 6-year old, 15-lb. fellow on a journey to find my perfect permanent home. Before coming to foster care, I lived outdoors isolated at a shelter, so I have been learning just how amazing it is to live with people who care about me. Sometimes touch can be a little scary for me and I need to move away, but my foster mom has helped me learn how touch can also help me feel safe when I'm frightened. I'm very communicative and I'll tell you what feels best to me, and I love to ask for your affection. My favorite way to share affection is when you hold our your hands and I come over for a kiss and a pet, and I'll curl my body against yours and ask for tummy rubs. I also love to curl up beside you (or lie on top of you!) on the couch and relax. I get so excited when I see you in the morning or when you come home that I just wiggle all over. I don't believe I could live with children or in a home where children are often present, because of their grabby hands. But I'm fine with adults and I'd love to take walks on leash or ride in the car with you. I am 100% house trained and can reliably be left loose in the house if you need to go somewhere without me. I ride in my crate in the car and sleep in another crate at night, but if you want me to sleep at the foot of your bed, I am totally up for that. 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 potty great on leash and love my walks, so a fenced in yard isn't required but I'd enjoy it if you had one. I do need a quieter environment so busy apartments or condos aren't for me. 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)|
Salinas is a 2- to 3-year old sweet girl who weighs about 16 lbs. and is the queen of kisses! She loves people but she can be conflicted and shy, too, 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. Salinas does fine with other dogs but usually chooses to play with toys by herself rather than wrestling with another dog. She actually seems much more confident with other dogs around as long as they aren't the type to push her to play with them. And outside she is like a different dog when a buddy is there for her to follow. She is anxious when alone but if a dog is out with her, she relaxes and is playful and ready for fun. Sal is proving to be a smart girl and because she is so focused on her humans and is food motivated, she picks things up amazingly fast. So far she has learned 'sit,' 'down,' 'off,' 'touch,' and 'spin.' She is doing great with house training; if she gets lots of potty breaks and praise for eliminating outside, accidents can be avoided. She is still learning, though, so will need someone willing to continue to help her to master this skill. Careful supervision and crate training should help her continue this success with her new family. While Miss Sal wouldn't be called 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, where she can work through her initial transition period without bothering condo neighbors. 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. To read more about Salinas, check out her foster mom's blog at http://www.rescuedratties.blogspot.com or see more photos and video at http://www.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.
