Animal ID: 1841Lando (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Champion Snuggler for adoption! Lando is an adorably sweet, affectionate, silly little Rat Terrier mix who just lives to be loved! He is initially very shy with new people, but when he warms up he is full of cuddles and kisses. Lando weighs about 9 lbs. and is a youngster, turning one year old around April 2017. He is looking for a home that can give him the socialization and training he needs to develop his confidence and become a thoroughly awesome grown up. His uncertainty and anxiety at scary new situations does currently make him a nip risk, so he needs a home without young children. He is good with other dogs, preferring the ladies and ... (Read More)other smallish males. He isn't very interested in toys yet, but he does enjoy running and playing with the other dogs in his foster home. He is working on his house training and making good progress, and he is already crate trained. In fact, he will jump into his crate for a treat then sleep quietly there throughout the night. Lando's favorite activity is to snuggle up on the couch and since he can be a little needy, his new adoptive family should be understanding and open to being followed all around the house. Lando is prone to carsickness on longer trips (and frankly doesn't enjoy riding in a travel crate), so he needs a local adoption. If you can give him the time and patience he needs to be his best self, and are looking for a devoted cuddlebug, he will make make you feel truly appreciated and adored. To see more photos of Lando, please visit http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/lando. ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Lando, 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.

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Cats, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Needs Vaccinations 

    Rico de Gallo is the black one, Lily Nelson is the white one with grey spots. They're brother and sister (from what I was told when I got them years ago) and will not be separated. They are Rat terrier and Chihuahua mix. She is spayed, he is neutered, and both are microchipped. They're about 8 years old. I got them as pups, and have had them since. My health is declining rapidly and they need a better home as soon as possible. Rico has developed some anxiety due to my recent seizures. They are gun shy, and afraid of anyone who yells. Otherwise are fine with kids (even babies). They love laying in the sun, walks, and doing tricks for treats. ... (Read More)They do not play with balls or toys much though. They love sweet potatoes and bacon! Their little paws are very sensitive to cold and ice, but neither has any major health issues that I'm aware of. However, they also haven't seen a vet in 5 years. They're awesome lap dogs when need be, but love to run. (Less)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

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

He has been diagnosed with diabetes 10 months ago. At that time he went blind. You wouldn't even know he was blind. He need insulin injections twice a day. His insulin costs around $28 a month. I am willing to help pay for some of his insulin costs. He is completely housetrained. He acts healthy and happy, you wouldn't even know he has these issues. He enjoys walking on leash and doesn't have any problems getting around.

We scooped him out of there and he is living the high life now with 2 dog foster sisters and a Poodle named Raymond. Bullet is quite the charmer, and is fine with dogs, cats, and he LOVES kids. In fact, he goes from person to person seeking attention, and is willing to hang out with anyone. His favorite activity is eating, in fact, he's overdone it and now must lose some weight before he can get a dental. Bullet is 8 years old, easy going, and house trained.

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Needs Vaccinations, Abused/Neglected 

    Hi my name is Cash and I am a young adult who weighs about 10 pounds. I am looking for a home where my owner will be dedicated to my learning through positive reinforcement! I also need a home where my new owner is experienced with shy dogs and can help me gain confidence as I can start out very shy and cautious. When I warm up I can be jumpy and mouthy. Once I warm up get used to my environment I will be on the active side.I would do best in a home with older children. I am getting neutered on 9/13 but will be available for adoption looks starting Thursday, 9/15.

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Needs Vaccinations 

    Pipsqueak is a 4 year old male who likes to cuddle and play. He gives lots of kisses. He does not get along with other dogs, which is the major reason we are choosing to release him. As is true to Dachshund, he is stubborn at times and attempts to be dominating. He also has toileting issues in that he was pad trained prior to coming to us and he has not broken that habit. He will go potty outside, but not poo. He also will mark his territory around both dogs and new people. He also tends to go potty in the house when he is mad.He is a very loving dog, but requires consistency and deserves more attention than he is currently receiving due to ...

Rat Terrier    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Female Rat Terrier, small at about 10 pounds, 10 years old, white with black markings. Very playful and active! I've had her since she was 10 weeks old. She loves people, gets along well with most all other animals she has come in contact with. Prefers to be in charge. Would not do well in a home with a large hyper dog, it stresses her out too much because she likes to keep the peace. We are moving out of state and living in a smaller travel trailer and she just would not do well with that. She needs more space and one on one time. She tried living with my nephew, but it just didn't work out (large hyper dog). I would really like to ... (Read More)find her a home with an older person/couple who can spend full time with her. She would do well as an only dog, but she doesn't like to be left alone for long periods of time. She would need her human companions. I can provide pictures upon request. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-04-30-00088Natalee (female)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adult Women Only 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Natalee is a sweet girl looking for a second chance at her forever home. She is 7 years old and enjoys walks, car rides, and naps. She was originally rescued from a local shelter. They cleared her of all behavioral issues. But as we grew to know her we quickly saw signs that this was not true. We believe she came from an abusive home and due to that she fears other dogs and adult males. Because we have other dogs and two adult males in our home she un fortunately is not the right match for us. We believe she would do best in a home with a single adult female where she can have one on one attention and love, she is also ok with cats. She is ... (Read More)house broken, up to date with all vaccinations, and knows all basic commands. For more information on this sweet girl please feel free to call or text @ 262-442-2958 (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Rat Terrier in Wisconsin
    Rat Terrier Dogs can make good pets in Wisconsin 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.
