|Rescue Me ID: 14-08-19-00290Dixie (female)|
Dixie is very loving and wants to be cuddled. She is tolerant of children, and does not snap at them but does her best to stay away from kids. Right now she is living with a 2 year old and we have had no issues. She was my father's dog, along with Belle who is also posted, until my father fell ill and passed away. Unfortunately we cannot keep them. We live in an apartment. They are both very loving dogs and deserve a happy loving homes to live out the rest of their years. They desperately miss my father and need someone that will love and spoil them like he did.

|Animal ID: 1427Jilly (female)|
Jilly is a spunky 4-year-old, 20-lb. Rat Terrier mix, who was rescued from an abandoned house in Indianapolis. She traveled up to her foster home on Memorial Day and has decided that her favorite thing to do is going for rides. Whether it's the car, her foster dad's dump truck, the ATV, or the lawn mower, if it's motorized, she wants to ride on or in it! Jilly is currently working on some anxiety issues, probably due to having been abandoned, but is doing better. She is playing crate games with her foster mom and has learned to go into her crate on her own for a nap. While she doesn't have to be attached to a person, she definitely wants to be where her people are and not left alone. Given a regular schedule of potty breaks, she will usually do her business outside, but she needs her person to be outside with her. Jilly gets along with other dogs of various sizes, is good with kids, and is fine with the 'office' cats that run around at the vet's. Jilly needs a home where she can be certain to have her people nearby. She would make a great companion for someone looking for that same close relationship. ========================================================================================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.

|Animal ID: 0734Rocco (male)|
Psst! Hey, over here! It's me, Rocco. So I'm not the youngest dog out there, but is that any reason to ignore me? In rat terrier years, 12 is nothing! I would be the exact same age as Richard Gere and just a little older than Denzel Washington. Would you toss these two out like yesterday's newspaper? I think not! They say men of a certain age carry weight--personally I carry 28 lbs. and could stand to lose a few--but that's neither here nor there. I'm talking about the weight of maturity, knowledge, and a sense of humor that younger pups lack. For example, let's look at maturity. My foster mom says I'm her little gentleman. I know how to behave myself, and I like people, other dogs, cats, and even kids, as long as they're not too boisterous or 'huggy.' I'm mature enough to walk nicely on a leash and to take for outings in the car. As for knowledge--where do I start? I know how to stay in a crate at night, how to ask to go out and do my 'business' outdoors where it belongs, how to play with toys and other dogs in moderation, of course, and I even have a cool repertoire of tricks. I can do 'sit,' 'shake,' 'down,' and 'roll over.' And about my sense of humor--those of you who remember the old 'Dukes of Hazzard' TV show will like this--when my foster mom calls me ''Rocco' P. Coltrane,' I wag my tail so hard that my whole butt moves! It really cracks her up! So that kind of sums me up. How about you? Got a spot on the couch and a free hand to pet my head? Then you are JUST what I'm looking for! If you want to take a closer look at me, check out my cool photo album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/rocco .========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Rocco, 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: 0886Agnes (female)|
Adorable little Agnes is puzzled! More than anything, this little Rat Terrier/Chihuahua mix wants to offer her love and devotion to a special someone. All she asks for in return is a warm lap to curl up in, a gentle hand to scratch her head and toss a ball, and a caring heart to make sure she gets her special food so her bladder stays healthy and a regular schedule for potty breaks. But so far, nobody has noticed her sitting here with that expectant smile that says, 'I know you're out there...' With her compact 12-lb. size and her fervent hope to be somebody's only 'baby,' 7-year-old Agnes would make the perfect companion for a single person who is retired or home most of the day. That way, she and her forever mom or dad could feast attention upon one another, take walks, or go for a drive (but she promises to readily go to her crate if she needs to stay home). This is what she dreams of, and she hopes it won't be too much longer till her dream comes true. She can't hold that smile forever! You can see more pictures of Agnes and her hopeful smile at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/agnes . ================================================If you are interested in adopting Agnes, 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.
