Animal ID: 1480Alonzo (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Alonzo is so full of personality that it's hard to convey in pictures, much less in words. This 4- to 5-year old 10-lb. Rat Terrier/Chihuahua mix is quirky and smart. He loves his toys and likes to snuggle. It can take him a while to warm up to new people, but when he does, he owns you! He is house trained, going to the door to let you know he needs to go outside, and he is coming along well learning basic obedience commands. Alonzo gets along with other dogs, but because he doesn't like to share his toys (resource guarding) and can be possessive of his people, he would be better as an only dog. For the same reason, he should be in a home ... (Read More)without young children. Because Alonzo knows that his quirky, endearing nature has to be experienced firsthand, he urges you to 'cut to the chase' and apply for him, but if you insist on mulling it over, then check out his awesome online photo album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/alonzo . ========================================================================================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.

Animal ID: 0846Genesis (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Everyone who meets Genesis falls in love with her. Those big eyes shyly look away at first, but when she gets to know you, she will snuggle her little 10-lb. body into your arms, nuzzle your neck, and kiss your face. This petite cutie just turned 3 years old, and she's looking for a calm home where she can show her playfully goofy side as well as her sweetly affectionate, cuddle-bug side. Geni gets along with men, women, kids, dogs, and cats. She is house-trained, crate-trained, walks well on leash, knows basic household manners, and prefers a secure crate for car travel. Geni is sensitive to her person and likes to be with you, but she can ... (Read More)also entertain herself with her toys. She has an easily managed medical condition that results in 'vestibular events' when she is very stressed. A structural anomaly in her brain occasionally causes loss of balance, but an episode can be stopped before it becomes a full vestibular event. A stable environment is essential for Geni, as is a relatively peaceful yard. She doesn't have great depth perception and jumps face first into the couch as often as she jumps on to it, but that never bothers her! Geni is an amazing, lovable girl, and by example she has taught the people around her to 'relax when you're stressed and just laugh it off when you accidentally bounce off the furniture.' For more photos and info on this adorable and rascally girl, please see her page at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/genesis . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Genesis, 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: 1427Jilly (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Beautiful Jilly is a 17-lb., 4-year old Rat Terrier mix who was found in an abandoned house then taken to a shelter. Perhaps because of this traumatic background, she came to foster care with pretty severe fear issues. Storms, fireworks, and being left alone were all cause for great anxiety for her. In her foster home, she has been receiving therapy for these issues, including a behavior modification training plan accompanied by anxiety medication, a Thundershirt, and lots of one-on-one training with her foster mom. This approach has greatly benefited her, and Jilly now has more confidence, is able to stay by herself alone without excessive ... (Read More)stress, and will go outside when it's time. She likes to meet new people. She is a mild mannered girl who gets along well with the other dogs in the house, enjoys being with well-behaved children, and pays no attention to the cats she has been around. She has decided that her favorite thing to do is going for rides, and will happily accompany you in or on any type of motorized vehicle. Jilly is learning crate games from her foster mom and has learned to go into her crate on her own for a nap. She would make a great companion for someone looking for a close relationship. See more photos of Jill in her photo album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/jilly. ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Jilly, 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 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.
