Story
FOSTERED IN: Chicago, IL 60625 ESTIMATED DOB: 2014 WEIGHT: 12lbs KIDS: Likely DOGS: Yes CATS: Possibly HISTORY: Egon was a stray who was brought to a suburban animal control facility. ABOUT: Egon is a gentle, sweet boy with bunny-soft fur. Egon had horribly painful teeth when he arrived at Lulu’s Locker and had to have 30 teeth removed. (He has 5 left) Egon has adjusted very well after the dental. His foster soaks his food to make it easier for him, but he can take and eat softer treats without a problem. He has blossomed into a great little dog who will thrive as a companion who will always be next to you on the couch or in bed. Egon loves to give kisses, as soon as you pick him up or lay down in bed he will shower you with kisses. Egon doesn’t demand to be picked up, but he isn’t bothered by it. Despite being incredibly affectionate Egon is never demanding of attention and doesn’t bother you if you are otherwise occupied. He is not bothered by any touch or any handling. Egon likes to sleep right next to his foster mom, and also enjoys burrowing into blankets - although he frequently only buries his head and leaves his entire back half sticking out. Egon has adjusted very well into his foster home. He will ask to go outside by pawing the door, but as a senior he does struggle to hold it for his foster’s entire work day. He has done very well going on, or mostly on, the pee pads placed by the door. Egon has never gotten into any mischief while his fosters are gone and just seems to settle in on the couch to wait until they return. Egon is active, but is not high energy. Egon wants to be right with his foster family at all times. If you get up to leave the room, he is eager to come along. He loves going for walks and can easily keep up, but he will quickly settle in for a nap as soon as you get home. He also loves to explore all the smells in the yard on nice days. Egon is hard-of-hearing but is not deaf. He can definitely hear his name when called, but you can also sneak up on him when he is napping because he can’t hear you. Egon no longer barks when left alone - but he did for a while when he was getting used to his foster home. He also will bark if he hears other dogs, the main door opening, or he can see people or dogs walking by on the sidewalk. He might do OK in some apartment settings with thicker walls and patient neighbors during the transition period. The shelter told us Egon was very friendly with other dogs, and he has adjusted very well into his foster home with a large and small breed male dog. In the beginning he was over-interested in humping the larger dog who was too polite to tell him no. We are not sure if this was stress from leaving the shelter, or if this is a behavior he will do when he is getting used to a new dog. It was managed with controlled and time limited interactions, and faded off over time and is an exceptionally rare occurrence now. He never bothered the smaller resident dog who was not shy about telling him to buzz off. He now enjoys an occasional senior-dog romp/rough house with the large breed dog. Egon has no problems with the other dogs and would do just fine in homes with another dog but we think he might love being an only child. Egon is not being fostered with children or cats. He did meet a cat at the vet and was curious, but not overly interested. He backed off when the cat tried to show him who was boss. Egon has been friendly with every single person he has met, so he would likely be fine in homes with children who are old enough to understand the needs of a senior dog. Egon is a very happy, easy, friendly dog with an “active senior” energy level. Arthritis was noted on his medical examinations, we have started him on a joint supplement to see how he does, but this may need to be upgraded to a pain medication from the vet. He learned to use the stairs to get into bed after watching the resident dogs use them just a time or two. More information and our adoption application can be found at www.luluslockerrescue.org.

Story
Looking for a companion for walking, hiking, camping, RVing, hunting, farming, or anything outdoors? This is your dog! Bea is a beautiful 3- to 5-year-old with many of the characteristics typical of a Decker rat terrier, not least of which is her size--30 lbs. Before coming to New Rescue, Bea showed up at a Missouri country home, where she quickly befriended the resident Lab puppy and demonstrated what a nature girl she is. She enjoyed roaming the five wooded acres and tracking and chasing critters!   Now in her foster home, Bea has had a chance to show off more of her awesome qualities. She is sweet, gentle, polite, quiet, and smart. She already understands some commands and will easily learn more! She walks nicely on a leash and looks forward to daily walks. She's also house-trained and lets you know when she needs to go out to potty. For those of you who work from home, Bea is the perfect coworker, quietly napping on her dog bed in the office during the workday. She's working on how to meet and greet other dogs with trips to the local dog park.    Bea is looking for a family that loves the outdoors as much as she does. A wide-open country space to explore or a large fenced property would be great. Otherwise regular, substantial (she can go for hours) leashed walks are a must. A home where Bea can relax and be her happy, playful self would bring out the best in this nature gal. See more Bea in her online album at https://imageevent.com/newrattitude/bea . 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. July 14, 2024, 10:30 pm

Story
Rio needs to be rehomed. We rescued him from the cold about two years ago. Unfortunately it’s not working out. Rio and our male Chihuahua are not bonding and we don’t have the time to give him the attention he deserves. Rio really needs a human with a lot of patience and time and a home preferably no other dogs. We think he is a Rat Terrier and is around five years old. He is very energetic and loves to chew on bones. His favorite snack is teething rings. He is pad trained and trained to go outside.

Story
SOOOOOO how many people remember Starsky and Hutch?? Probably not too many! But if you DO, please don't prejudice us with the "wildness" of our namesakes'! OK, we are a LITTLE wild and cute cute cute! Found in a neighborhood together at about 2-3 months old, we could have had a very different life.... however, we were found by a couple of high school boys who immediately drove us to the rescue to see if they would help at 5pm on a Friday evening. AND IT WORKED!!! We are a couple of cute boys, we are barkers and that is part of the breed- Rat Terriers are busy and smart and active and they bark! We are cute when we bark though :) We do not have to be adopted together, although we love each other and have been together our WHOLE lives.... but we can be adopted apart. We may be nervous at first if adopted separately but if you follow the 3/3/3 rule, it will take us time to adjust in our new home anyway!! (you will find a copy of the 3/3/3 rules in our medical record if you adopt one or both of us) We are waiting for the right family/families to come along and we hope that we find you or you find us soooonnnnn!! Local adoption fee is $250 (in TX) Out of state adoption fee is $550 (includes transport to your area)
