Animal ID: 1620Syrio (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

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

    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 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 ... (Read More)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. Syrio's adopters should live close enough to his New Berlin (WI) foster home to meet him in person to ensure a good personality match for all involved. 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 . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Syrio, please go to New Rattitude's website at, where there is detailed information and a link to our adoption application.

Animal ID: 1457Bandit (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

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

    This is Bandit, and he will steal your heart! He is 6 years old, weighs 22 lbs., and gives affection to everyone around him. Bandit has many interests, but his favorite thing to do is to put his head through his harness and patiently wait for you to connect his leash. He will gladly accompany you on a walk, run, or bike ride. He also loves to sit outside to watch (and sometimes chase) birds, squirrels, and butterflies. In addition, Bandit enjoys playing and snuggling with children, but he is working on some anxiety issues when meeting new dogs or sometimes men, and he also doesn't like loud, noisy things such as vacuums, hand tools, and ... (Read More)blenders. (He will bark and let you know that he is uncomfortable.) He's making progress in these areas and just needs time and practice from a patient and loving owner to adjust to these situations. Bandit is house trained and remains in one room when his foster parents go to work. While not a fan of the crate for overnight or other long periods of time, he will occasionally retreat there on his own to take a nap, and when traveling by car, he'll stay in his crate for hours without making a peep. Bandit doesn't know many tricks but 'sits' when you tell him to. He also has excellent recall, faithfully coming to you whenever you say his name, even from another room, and because he's treat motivated, he shows great potential for learning new things. Bandit has proven to be a fantastic companion because he is always interested in what his family is doing. He can play when you bring out a toy, or he can chill with you after a long day. If you're looking for an amazingly loyal friend, Bandit is the one for you. To see more pictures and videos of this handsome 'heart-stealer,' visit his online album at . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Bandit, please go to New Rattitude's website at, 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.
