Story
Lucy Lu enjoyed much love in her previous home. Maybe a bit too much was in the form of food, for this sweet 10- to 11-year-old rat terrier arrived at her New Rattitude foster home very much over her ideal weight of about 15 lbs. Lucy is too embarrassed to tell us what the scales currently say, but she's proud that she has already shed 1.6 lbs. with copious walks and playtime with her canine foster brother, as well as feedings carefully measured by her foster mom. Lucy needs her adopter to commit to helping her complete her journey to good health.   Before coming to NR, Lucy lived with one person and a cat, so she's shy around new people, barking at them and then avoiding them. If left alone, she'll approach when she's ready; people ignoring this advice will likely be growled at. Lucy still gets along with cats and has learned a lot about living with other dogs. She enjoys playing with them and with toys. You should see her fine game of tug-of-war! She occasionally gets growly and tries to lay claim to certain toys or space, but her foster mom has taught her about sharing by permitting access to these cherished resources only when her behavior is appropriate. Lucy would be fine as an only dog or as a member of a small group of easy-going canine friends.   Lucy is reliably house-trained as long as you take her out or provide access to a dog door. She's also crate trained and will sleep in her crate at night and for naps. However, she would LOVE to sleep in your bed. She's such an affectionate pup and an easy keeper, how could you possibly say no? You can see more photos of Lucy at  https://imageevent.com/newrattitude/lucylu . Our adoption fee is $200 for adult dogs or $250 for puppies under 6 months old. If you are interested in adopting this dog, PLEASE READ THE DETAILED ADOPTION PROCESS information on our website at www. NewRattitude.org/adopt/  From there, you can access our adoption application or contact our Adoption Team for more info. May 23, 2024, 8:54 am

Story
Recently, my elderly mother, unexpectedly passed away leaving two loyal companions in need of a new, loving environment. Bacon, has been a cherished member of her family for many years, providing unconditional love and companionship. Given the sudden circumstances, we are seeking compassionate individuals or families who would be willing to open their hearts and homes to Bacon. She is house-trained and accustomed to the company of humans and other dogs and is a sweet lap dog. It is our utmost priority to ensure a seamless transition for these dogs and to find them a safe haven where they can continue to thrive. Your support during this challenging time is deeply appreciated. Thank you for considering the welfare of these dogs and for any assistance you can provide.
