Story
Milo is a 12 year old rat terrier mix. I adopted him in 2020 from a shelter in Madison, WI when he was 8 years old. He is playful, curious, and energetic and can always bring a smile to my face. Milo has fairly high anxiety which has worsened over the last 6 months with his eyesight and hearing deteriorating, as is expected in a senior dog. I would say I am looking for an experienced owner with lots of patience for Milo, because he is ultimately a very sweet and lovable dog, but needs extra attention.

Meet Lola PLEASE NOTE- AN APPLICATION FROM THE WEBSITE ALMOSTHOMEDOGS.ORG IS REQUIRED prior to any meet and greet. Calling, emailing and using the “contact us” link is not useful and will delay your consideration in the adoption of the dog. Petfinder inquires are not sent to us. Meet Lola, super sweet cuddle bug, playful and great with small dogs. She is about 1 yr old and 10 pounds. The perfect size to cuddle up on bed with. She is housebroken and a delight. Playtime and cuddles-it is what she is about-has just discovered the toy box... PLEASE READ-many rescue dogs are confused and scared when first adopted, they are in a brand new situation, the people are new, the home and yard are new, everything is new and terrifying. It is so important to check collars and harnesses for correct fit and hang on carefully to your brand new dog-even within a fenced yard until they are feeling more comfortable, coming over to you for scratches, etc. APPLY AT ALMOSTHOMEDOGS.ORG (click on the word "Adopt" at top of page to find the dropdown menu with application) The adoption fee is $425, which includes the cost of routine vetting, including age appropriate vaccinations, worming, flea/tick preventative and spay/neuter. All of our dogs will be microchipped. Because our dogs are in foster homes, applications are required prior to setting up any appointments. Calling or emailing may delay your consideration. Find our application on our website, almosthomedogs.org, then click on "Adopt" tab at top We are a non profit no kill 501 (c)3 rescue. Please understand that we do our best to describe our dogs but often we rescue them with virtually no information about them and often our best educated guess can be challenging. Currently check, cash or venmo is preferred payment.-

Story
There's just something special about dogs named Ziggy! Is it their courage? Resilience? Our handsome Ziggy, a rattie mix with possibly fox terrier ancestry, has plenty of both. After being struck by a car and spending a month in a North Carolina shelter with a broken hip, Ziggy was rescued by New Rattitude and given the surgery needed to repair the hip. After brief recovery time, he boarded a plane to fly to Maryland, where his foster home is located and where he courageously faced what he hopes is his last time under the knife--his neutering.   Estimated at 1-2 years old, the resilient fellow has gained some much-needed weight (he's now 12 lbs.) and is making up for lost time with a newfound zest for living. He LOVES playing with toys--LOTS of toys! He gets along with his two canine foster siblings, but his two best friends are dogs weighing over 50 lbs. each. He hopes you'll have a young canine companion for him too. Ziggy is completely house-trained and good walking with harness and leash although he'll bark at strangers, wagging his tail nevertheless.   X-rays show that Ziggy's hip is healing, but some nerve damage remains, causing knuckling of that rear paw. A consulting neurologist states that further healing of the nerve may occur slowly. Unrelated to the nerve, Ziggy may sometimes run on three legs, but he tends to use all four on soft surfaces like carpet or grass. The best part is, Ziggy sees no problem. He does zoomies and stairs, with energy left to play with the big dogs! Nothing seems to stop this resilient little boy, who is so ready for his forever home. And be honest, you KNOW you've always wanted a Ziggy! See more photos in his online album at  https://imageevent.com/newrattitude/ziggy .   Applicants considering Ziggy should plan to meet him in his foster home prior to adoption to observe his gait and movement patterns in his normal environment. 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
