|Rescue Me ID: 15-04-15-00115Whiskey (male)|
Whiskey is a bright, energetic and VERY friendly Whippet/Rat Terrier mix. I rescued him from a shelter in Missouri about a year ago. He is THE most obedient dog I have ever owned, loves to be next to his owner and is always up for a game of toss! He is a whippet, which is a sight dog, so although he doesn't need a leash most time it is good to keep one on him while walking where a squirrel or rabbit might show their face. He is not a dog that desires to run around the neighborhood, so he is the perfect dog for those that hate chasing a dog that has gotten loose. He is VERY smart and learns new things quickly. He has most definitely been abused in the past and reacts submissively to loud noises or any type of scolding (even just a finger wag). I was told when I adopted him that he had no issues with children but have found that he is actually VERY territorial. My Vet calls it 'Little Dog Syndrome' which seems to fit. This becomes an issue with almost any children because he sees them as beneath him. I have never seen him act this way toward any other Adult. Whiskey would be the perfect dog for a single person or couple with no children and/or a dog that tends to have less Alpha personality issues. We are sad to have to part ways with him, other than the issue with children he really is the very best dog I have ever had. Please help me find a good home! (Less)

|Animal ID: 1593Elia (female)|
Meet Elia! She's a sweet, spunky, athletic Rat Terrier mix who weighs about 15 lbs. and is around 10 months old. Elia dreams of winning a flyball tournament, competing in agility, and running circles around other dogs! She is a natural athlete--confident, swift, and graceful. Elia hasn't met a physical challenge she can't surmount. She matches her energy level to her environment. When she's out in the fenced yard at her foster home, she turns on the jets, but when she's on the couch, she knows how to relax and snuggle! When meeting new people, Elia is cautiously affectionate and just a little submissive. She starts to trust new people in short time, and then she's their new best friend, giving hugs and kisses freely. When meeting new dogs, Elia's confidence shines. She makes dog friends easily; her favorite dogs are the ones who like to run with her, but she can be a little too frisky for smaller dogs. Elia is learning to love her crate because she gets special treats and toys inside it, and she is also learning to do her potty business outdoors. Since she is at her best when she can run full speed several times a day, a fenced yard is a must for her. Her ideal family will be adults only--active, with some experience with terriers and/or dog sports. She shouldn't be in a home with small children, who are too young to understand her need for space. When fully mature, Elia is going to be a doggy rock star! See more pics of Elia at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/elia . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Elia, 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.
