Rescue Me ID: 15-02-02-00623Maddie (Courtesy Post) (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Maddie is a 9 yr. old Rat Terrier looking for her forever home. She is currently in a home but is to high energy for the lady. She was rescued from an abusive situation by the lady who now has her. This lady however can not deal with her high energy, so she needs to be rehomed. She loves her toys and love to cuddle and be petted, but is afraid of anything that moves quickly over her head. She will need a home with a fenced in yard and another dog to play with. If you would like to adopt an older, high energy dog, please call Joanne, at 608-343-5388. She is completely vetted and her adoption fee is $100.00.

Rescue Me ID: 15-02-02-00103Maddie (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected 

    Maddie is a great snuggler and loves to play however, I rescued her from a person who didn't treat her well so she has issues. I have tried for months to get her to trust but she does not like her feet touched, anything raised into the air (ex. fly swatters, newspapers)She will nip if you reached for her behind to discipline. I'm guessing this is perhaps where she was hit with the swatter etc. I love her but I am incapable of teaching her not to be so aggressive in certain situations. She needs someone who can work with her to learn to trust.

Animal ID: 1480Alonzo (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Alonzo is so full of personality that it's hard to convey in pictures, much less in words. This 4- to 5-year old 10-lb. Rat Terrier/Chihuahua mix is quirky and smart. He loves his toys and likes to snuggle. It can take him a while to warm up to new people, but when he does, he owns you! He is house trained, going to the door to let you know he needs to go outside, and he is coming along well learning basic obedience commands. Alonzo gets along with other dogs, but because he doesn't like to share his toys (resource guarding) and can be possessive of his people, he would be better as an only dog. For the same reason, he should be in a home ... (Read More)without young children. Because Alonzo knows that his quirky, endearing nature has to be experienced firsthand, he urges you to 'cut to the chase' and apply for him, but if you insist on mulling it over, then check out his awesome online photo album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/alonzo . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting this dog, 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)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Beautiful Jilly is a 17-lb., 4-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 to foster care with pretty severe fear issues. Storms, fireworks, and being left alone were all cause for great anxiety for her. In her foster home, she has been receiving therapy for these issues, including a behavior modification training plan accompanied by anxiety medication, a Thundershirt, and lots of one-on-one training with her foster mom. This approach has greatly benefited her, and Jilly now has more confidence, is able to stay by herself alone without excessive ... (Read More)stress, and will go outside when it's time. She likes to meet new people. She is a mild mannered girl who gets along well with the other dogs in the house, enjoys being with well-behaved children, and pays no attention to the cats she has been around. She has decided that her favorite thing to do is going for rides, and will happily accompany you in or on any type of motorized vehicle. Jilly is learning crate games from her foster mom and has learned to go into her crate on her own for a nap. She would make a great companion for someone looking for a close relationship. See more photos of Jill in her photo 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.

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!

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.
