|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.

|Rescue Me ID: 14-06-19-00740Lucy (female)|
Lucy is a very loving dog. She loves to have her belly rubbed!! She gets along with other animals and children. She really enjoys going for walks. We are moving and can't take her along! I would rather she go to a home rather than the humane society.

|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)|
Agnes has the dance moves, the sparkle, and the vivaciousness of a true Diva Princess! But like so many cool and confident divas, her cocky little attitude often gets her into trouble. Agnes is an irresistibly cute 7-year old Rat Terrier/Chihuahua mix who is big on personality and loves to be the center of attention but is particular about who gets to pat her. She will bond very tightly with her chosen human, giving and receiving lots of cuddly, loving affection. But she doesn't want to have to share her person or the spotlight, and would definitely prefer to shine as the only dog in an adults-only home. Someone able to appreciate the sassiness this party girl brings to everyday life will be adored and entertained by her antics. She enjoys going for car rides and walks, but most of all she enjoys chasing a ball. She will toss her toy around, chase it, roll on it, and then play bow and dare you to take it. When play time is over, she'll turn on the charm and beg for cuddles. At 12 lbs., Agnes is somewhat overweight but a couple of walks a day will help her slim right down. She is crate trained and house trained on a set schedule, but her medical history includes some urinary problems that have kept her from being 100% reliable. Since she does very well with loving structure, a home where she could be one-on-one with her person will give her the opportunity to cultivate good habits and gleam like the true princess she is.

|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.
