|Animal ID: 1620Syrio (male)|
This little love muffin is Syrio! He's about 3 years old and weighs just 9 lbs., but he has a ton of love to give! Syrio is a polite, well-mannered little gentleman who has ambitions to become a professional lap warmer someday. Snuggly and affectionate, Syrio enjoys cuddling on the couch just as much as he likes to chase squirrels or play with his dog friends. He has made friends with all the dogs in his foster home, who range in size from 10 to 115 lbs., and his social skills have improved dramatically under their guidance. Syrio wasn't entirely sure how to be a dog before he was rescued, and watching him learn and blossom has been a joy for his foster parents. Now Syrio loves to learn, and he faces new wonders with quiet confidence. That's not to say he doesn't bark a little at strangers; he is a terrier, after all! But he is happily learning that people want to love him and treat him nicely, so after a brief introduction period, he is able to warm up to new friends. He does tend to cozy up more quickly to women, and any men in his adopting home may need to wait a bit longer to be the recipients of Syrio's affection, but he won't stay stand-offish for long. He just wants the guys to prove their worth by showing a little calm patience. Syrio is reliably house trained and sleeps quietly, though begrudgingly, in a crate at night. He is eager to please and requires nothing more than a little love and praise as a reward. And because he has a delicate frame and appreciates a slow, gentle touch, Syrio should live in a home without young children (or rambunctious older ones). To see more pics of this handsome little fellow, visit his online album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/syrio . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Syrio, 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: 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!

|Animal ID: 1457Bandit (male)|
Handsome Bandit is an 18-lb. 6-year-old cuddle buddy who is looking for someone to patiently help him learn that the world doesn't have to be so scary and that most people really are kind, after all. Poor Bandit has a very strong startle reflex, possibly as a result of having been hit in his past, so he requires gentle introductions to new people and things. Not surprisingly he can nip at the ankles of new folks who seem threatening, mostly when they make sudden moves or stand up over him quickly. Since he has received lots of exposure to company in his foster home, after a few short visits he does warm up to guests and show his charming side. He is also completely comfortable with quick movements from his foster mom, which is a strong sign that he will be fine once he is acclimated to his new family. In addition, he is very gentle with his foster mom's 3-year-old niece, who knows how to behave towards dogs (no pulling, etc.). Even when she runs around playing in the yard, Bandit doesn't seem scared of her at all. He does tend to bark when he is scared, as well as when he wants to play, but he has been making progress in 'Project Bark Reduction,' in which he is learning to stop barking on command. Bandit loves to learn and play training games, and with his learning he is becoming less fearful of things that have threatened him in the past. He also loves to walk (or run!) on leash, as well as running alongside his foster mom when she bikes. He will usually come when called, although he is such a devoted hunter that if he is 'on duty' (patiently waiting to ensure that the yard is clear of any intruding wildlife), it may take shaking the treat canister to get his attention. When not hunting, Bandit is usually found cuddled up on the back of the couch or on his foster mom's lap. He loves to sleep in the human bed and while not a fan of his crate, he will stay there while his foster mom is at work. Bandit's #1 house training is perfect, but his #2 reliability requires you to be vigilant to his signals requesting to be let outside. As long as you are reliable, he is too! He does fine with the two other mature dogs in his foster home, although he will sometimes growl if they walk on him (who wouldn't?) and will chase after them when they chase a ball, though he has no interest in the ball itself. Since he will probably do this with new playmates, other dogs in his new home should be confident and nonchalant enough to realize that he means no threat. Bandit truly has a gentle heart and is destined to become a faithful soulmate to a patient and understanding family...he just needs someone to give him that chance. To see more pictures of Bandit, please go to his online album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/bandito . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Bandit, 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)|
Beautiful Jilly is a sweet, mild-mannered 20-lb., 5-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 into foster care with very severe fear issues. Storms, fireworks, gunfire, and being left alone were all causes of anxiety for her. In foster care, she has received therapy for these issues, including behavior modification training accompanied by anxiety medication. She currently wears a Thundershirt during storms or when left alone, and it has made a tremendous difference for her. She has gained a lot of confidence with her training, and is now medication free! Jilly is house trained and will let you know when it's time to go outside. Her favorite thing is to meet new people. She often goes to work with her foster dad and loves the attention she gets. Jilly also loves to go for rides, so if it has a motor she will want to be on it or in it. She gets along well with the other dogs in the house and plays well with them. Jilly is working on crate training. She will nap in the crate and stay for short periods of time with the door closed, and is working on lengthening the amount of time she can have the door closed without getting agitated. When Jilly gets to know you, she happily turns on the charm and affection, and will give kisses and snuggle! There are a lot more photos of this beautiful girl in her 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.
