Animal ID: 1757Ernie (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Four-year-old Ernie is a gorgeous 12-lb. Rat Terrier with a gentle heart and a playful spirit. He enjoys playing with other dogs up to 35 lbs. He loves his toys and generously doesn't mind sharing them with the other dogs. Ernie can engage in high-octane play then easily switch gears to snuggle mode when playtime is over. This highly intelligent fellow learns how to navigate new environments quickly. It takes him longer, though, to learn that new people don't mean him any harm. This isn't surprising since in his life before rescue, Ernie had not been treated kindly; he had been left alone outside most of the time and he shows signs of having ... (Read More)been mishandled or treated roughly by human hands. Despite his past, Ernie has bonded deeply with his foster parents, and his gratitude is apparent in his soulful eyes. He will undoubtedly show this same deep attachment to new adoptive parent(s) but as it does take him a little while to get over his initial distrust of new people, Ernie will require a local adoption to give everyone the opportunity to meet first. Ernie is reliably house trained and crate trained, he rides like a gentleman in the car, and he demonstrates excellent house manners. He has learned commands quickly and since he is highly motivated by both food and praise, training him is very rewarding both for him and for those who train him! The ideal home for Ernie will have a fenced yard, no small children, and terrier experience. With lots of love, kindness, and patience, he will show you what a loving, happy, playful, silly boy he can be and will reward the heart that bonds with his with many years of devotion and love.

Animal ID: 1750Marley (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Handsome little Marley is an absolute doll. At 2 years and 16 lbs., he's a well-adjusted guy with a sweet and playful personality. His favorite activities (and inactivities) are anything that involves toys, playing, running, snuggling, sleeping with his human, and eating. Just a bit shy at first, he will warm up quickly to you and will soon be delivering kisses at bedtime. Similarly, he will quickly grow comfortable with new acquaintances, especially if treats are involved. He gets along great with the other two dogs in his foster home. They have been showing him the ropes, and it has been amazing to watch their canine relationships blossom. ... (Read More)Marley's doing well with his leash training and loves to go outdoors, but he especially enjoys running off leash, so he's hoping you'll have a fenced yard. He's also 100-percent reliably house trained on a schedule and sleeps through the night without any accidents. He is fine in his crate in the house or car and is a good car passenger. Marley thinks he has such fine qualities (and we agree). He just wants to share them with somebody. And that's where YOU come in! You can see more pictures of Marley in his online photo album at http://imageevent.com/marley . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Marley, 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: 16-05-10-00258Fiona (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Female Rat Terrier, small at about 10 pounds, 10 years old, white with black markings. Very playful and active! I've had her since she was 10 weeks old. She loves people, gets along well with most all other animals she has come in contact with. Prefers to be in charge. Would not do well in a home with a large hyper dog, it stresses her out too much because she likes to keep the peace. We are moving out of state and living in a smaller travel trailer and she just would not do well with that. She needs more space and one on one time. She tried living with my nephew, but it just didn't work out (large hyper dog). I would really like to ... (Read More)find her a home with an older person/couple who can spend full time with her. She would do well as an only dog, but she doesn't like to be left alone for long periods of time. She would need her human companions. I can provide pictures upon request. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-04-30-00088Natalee (female)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adult Women Only 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Natalee is a sweet girl looking for a second chance at her forever home. She is 7 years old and enjoys walks, car rides, and naps. She was originally rescued from a local shelter. They cleared her of all behavioral issues. But as we grew to know her we quickly saw signs that this was not true. We believe she came from an abusive home and due to that she fears other dogs and adult males. Because we have other dogs and two adult males in our home she un fortunately is not the right match for us. We believe she would do best in a home with a single adult female where she can have one on one attention and love, she is also ok with cats. She is ... (Read More)house broken, up to date with all vaccinations, and knows all basic commands. For more information on this sweet girl please feel free to call or text @ 262-442-2958 (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-01-21-00154Max (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Most Cats 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Max is a cute little guy who, once he gets to know you smiles and furiously wags his little tail. He is a Rat Terrier /Pomeranian mix who was born in 2009. He is neutered and current on vaccinations. Max came to be in rescue after getting nippy with the former owners children so he would probably do best in a home without young children. Max is potty trained and crate trained. Max lived with cats, however occasionally chases shy cats who will run. Max was never socialized with other dogs in his former life however, he is currently being fostered with 4 large breed dogs and he is doing very well learning to be a respectful memeber of the ... (Read More)pack. He is currently not allowed on the couch and is learning to sit before he eats and wait before going outside. Max is a little chubby so he is on a diet and getting daily walks where he is learning to heel on leash. After a little practice, he has become a perfect gentleman on the leash and he LOVES his walks! Max knows basic commands, however he would benefit from an obedience class for some confidence building and to help him bond with his new family. Max is fostering in Kenosha; his adoption fee is $200. Please contact Vicki at (262) 496-9324 if you are interested in Max! (Less)

Animal ID: 1457Bandit (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Cats 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Bandit is a gorgeous blue tricolor Rat Terrier who weighs 22 lbs. At 7 years old, Bandit is a mature gentleman with excellent house manners and a moderate energy level. He has plenty of energy for romping in the back yard, jogging and biking with his foster mom, and entertaining himself with his favorite squeaky toys. Bandit knows when it's time to play and when it's time to relax, and he enjoys snuggling on the couch just as much as playing. He is good with other dogs once introductions have been made, but he prefers them to be mellow like himself. Bandit takes a little bit to warm up to strangers and seems to prefer women, but he's quite ... (Read More)friendly once he gets to know new people. He is loving and patient with the children in his foster home and doesn't mind when it's his turn to play dress-up with them. Bandit is reliably house trained and is perfectly trustworthy and responsible when home alone. He is smart and eager to please, and he has worked hard to learn positive behaviors to replace old habits that he developed prior to rescue. While walking on leash, Bandit can be reactive to people, dogs, and other critters, but he has made great progress learning to redirect his attention. He rides well in the car and is happy to go for rides long and short. Bandit would do well with a calm, confident person or family with terrier experience to help him continue his positive growth. Bandit longs for a stable, secure environment where he will be loved and cherished as the amazing family dog that he is.

Animal ID: 0886Agnes (female)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Agnes! This irresistible cutie is an 8-year-old Rat Terrier/Chihuahua mix who is big on personality. She enjoys going for car rides and walks, but most of all she enjoys chasing a ball. This funny girl will toss her toy around, chase it, roll on it, and then play bow and dare you to take it. After a good play, Agnes is very affectionate and loving, wanting to share herself with just one person at a time before moving on to cuddle with another human friend. She is crate trained and her house training is reliable as long as she is kept on a schedule and fed a special diet to keep her bladder healthy. At 12 lbs., Agnes is somewhat ... (Read More)overweight, but she's not lazy; a couple of walks a day will help her slim right down. Since Agnes will compete for attention and affection, guards her food and toys, and will use her mouth to let the competition know she means business, she needs to be in a home where she's the only dog and there are no small children. If you are looking for a happy, funny, sweet girl to brighten your life, Agnes would love to meet you!
