Rescue Me ID: 14-12-18-00501Vladimir (male)

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, Fearful/Anxious 

    I need to find him a new home because he is too rough with my cats and has injured one of them very minor but still worries us enough he is now confined in our home in the kitchen. No life for a dog. He is anxious at first with new people he will do that submissive tinkle but then seems to disappear after a few weeks of getting to know them. He also will whine when you leave him alone so maybe a little separation anxiety also.

Animal ID: 1520Oliver (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Young Adult

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

    What do you consider an ideal dog? One who is affectionate and friendly, playful and lively, and always ready to engage with every dog or person he meets? Who is young enough to be fun (and cute as heck!) but old enough to have learned good manners and some of the finer Doggie Arts such as walking on leash without pulling? Small enough to fit comfortably in your lap when it's time for cuddling but with a big enough personality to be your best friend? Well, 12-lb., 1-1/2 year old Oliver would like to apply for the position of Ideal Dog in your household! This balanced boy is all that and more. He has done well around babies and older ... (Read More)children. He enjoys playing with the other dogs in his foster home, and although he has growled at a few other dogs when on leash, he would probably join right in and play with those same dogs once the leash came off and he was 'off duty.' Oliver met a cat on a neighborhood walk and was very interested in it, but didn't cross the line into craziness over the encounter. His moderately-high prey drive means he does track squirrel activity, but he forgets about the squirrel as soon as it is no longer in sight. Oliver believes that toys are meant to be played with and he is totally up for the job. After a good play session, this sweet boy is ready to curl up on your lap and share some cuddling. About the only thing that lies between Oliver and perfection is that he is not yet reliably house trained. It seems probable that before coming to rescue he lived mostly outdoors (in southern California) with no one having bothered to house train him, so it is all new to him. Fortunately, he is such a smarty-pants that he is starting to catch on to the concept already after just a short time in foster care, and with an adopter who is ready and able to continue a good training regimen, Oliver should reach full perfection quickly! Check out his on-line photo album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/oliver and see if you don't think he would make the most awesome companion. ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Oliver, 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: 1506Sybil (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Young Adult

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

    At some point in her young life of just 1 1/2 years, Sybil suffered a broken back leg that healed up just a bit shorter than her other leg, but does she let that bother her? Not one bit! This spunky 14-lb. gal loves going on walks and running around in the backyard, sometimes opting to bypass the shorter leg and whiz around on just three. Every bit as sweet as she looks in her pictures, Sybil loves other dogs and people, too, including young children. She isn't sure what to make of cats and ends up barking at them and chasing them, so she would be better in a home without cats. Sybil is crate trained and doing very well in her house ... (Read More)training using a doggie door. You can see more pictures of her at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/sybil and read about her daily antics at http://yapitude.blogspot.com . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Sybil, 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: 1507Gorky (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Sweet Gorky is a 2-year-old, 20-lb. Rat Terrier mix with the short legs of a type B (Teddy) Rat Terrier or a Corgi. This boy is always ready for fun. He's playful and goofy and an expert wrestler with a velvety blue coat and some epic-sized ears. When he visits the pet store with his foster mom to shop, he enjoys meeting new people and kids. Sure, he's a bit shy at first, but of course he is quickly won over by treats. Gorky's an energetic guy and loves playing with other dogs as long as they aren't too rough. His foster family is working with him on house training using the crate-training method and a frequent schedule for potty breaks,and ... (Read More)he's doing great. He's very intelligent and treat motivated and loves playing training games with his foster mom. While Gorky loves kitties because they are such great fun to chase, kitties would not love Gorky, so he would do best in a cat-free home. Gorky 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 Gorky is your man. You can find more photos of him at www.imageevent.com/newrattitude/gorky or follow him on his foster mom's blog at www.rescuedratties.blogspot.com . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Gorky, 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: 0826Fisher (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Fisher is a shy, sensitive 2-1/2-year-old with a calm presence. At 13 lbs., he is just the right size for curling up with you when you read a book or watch TV. He likes taking it easy and being wherever his people are, especially his foster dad. Fisher takes a while to trust new people, but after he does, he wants all of their attention. This sweet, mellow dog likes his environment to be just as laid-back as he is, and the way that young children move quickly and often too close can be very frightening to him and cause him to nip in warning, so Fisher's future home should not include little ones. Fisher enjoys taking daily walks around the ... (Read More)neighborhood, and if it's sunny, he loves to spend time exploring, sniffing the air, and playing chase with his canine foster sister. Fisher has good dog-to-dog manners and would do well in a home where he has a doggie playmate. After having a couple of potty accidents when he first came into foster care, he has been accident-free since that time and responds quickly when asked to 'go potty' outside. Fisher sleeps in a crate at night, but he would happily accept invitations to sleep in bed with his humans, if that is their preference. For more pictures of this fantastic fellow, see Fisher's online photo album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/fisher . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Fisher, 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: 14-10-23-00583ROMEO (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Romeo came into our rescue only about 4 days ago. He really likes a little fuzzy girl dog named Juliet, hence his name. He is about 12 lbs, will likely grow a little bit, but not too big, as he is already over 1 year old. I would guess 1-2. I think he is a terrier mixed with possibly Chihuahua. He has more of the short Chihuahua fur though, so fine hair. He is SO cuddly, friendly, and good with people and other dogs. He is a spunky little guy. He came into our pound, and I walked outside with him, and sat in the grass, he curled up in my lap, as if to say "don;t leave me here pleasee" He is so far, good with cats, as well. ... (Read More)He is the perfect size, big enough to go for light hikes, walks, and play and yet cuddle up in your arms too, He is very quiet overall, and just wants someone to love him. His ideal home would be someone who has another little dog for him to play with, and a fenced yard. He will need someone who has a flexible schedule, who works from home, or who could bring him along. He would do well, as an office dog. He maybe a little shyer in new situations, but with someone who is patient, he will do well. He does have energy, so someone who gets out alot would be a plus. We will be taking him into the vet this week, and he will be neutered, and he has already started his puppy shots. Romeo is being fostered near Tri Cities WA, but can be brought to the Seattle area for an approved adopter. Please email connellpetrescue@gmail.com for an application to adopt! (Less)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Corrie ia about 3 years old and just a little guy so no young children please. He is hoping for a moderately calm home. Corrie is good with other dogs so another dog in the home would be good, but is not required.

Animal ID: 1087Will (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

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

    My name is Will -- just about the most perfect name for a Dachshund/Rat Terrier mix fellow with as much personality as you could want! I'm around 3-1/2 years old, weigh approx. 13 lbs., and walk like I pretty much own the world. My foster mom laughs when I come strutting from the back yard with a leaf in my mouth. (I love leaves of every kind and if it's not a leaf, a twig will do nicely.) They say I need to work on my confidence as I am not sure of people when they come toward me without warning, and sometimes I forget myself and can get a little bitey with hands coming at me, so I wouldn't be a good match for a home with children. I am ... (Read More)quick to learn, as my foster mom has taught me to sit on cue, lie down, and roll over in my own funny way. I am great on a leash and get so excited to go for walks. My foster mom is working on helping me refocus when other dogs get too near me -- my habit is to start to bark and lunge -- and she says I am doing really great! I hope my adopter has another dog for me to play with, as I love to wrestle and snuggle and have a playmate to keep me company. I do really great being left in the house loose when my parents are gone but I have a very loud voice when I bark so I will need to live in a free-standing home so that we don't risk any complaints from irritable neighbors. I always have a toy in my mouth to greet my foster parents when they come home. I would love to live in a home with a fenced yard. I am great at using the doggie door but my house training skills are still a work in progress. If you are interested in a cocky little guy that would love nothing more than to cuddle next to you on the couch, I'm your man! You can see more of me in my on-line photo album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/will. ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Will, 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.
