Story
Peaches, like her namesake summer fruit, is sweet, fuzzy, and all around delightful. She weighs 11 lbs. and is approximately 2-3 years old. Peaches loves every human and dog, big or small, young or old. She is gentle and lively and loves to play. She would especially love to have another canine playmate around the same size to wrestle with and burn off some of her youthful energy. One of her favorite pastimes is playing 'bitey face' with her foster fur brother. She might also do fine as a solo pet, as long as she has the opportunity for play dates with other dogs and play engagement with her humans.  Peaches is working on mastering house-training, but she is already crate trained and quickly learned how to use the dog door to go outside to do her business. Peaches loves walking on a leash and has even done some jogging with her foster mom! She also enjoys riding in the car (either in a harness or in a crate), and she is always looking forward to her next outing. Though she is active and adventurous, she is also very affectionate and delights in giving as many kisses as you'll allow. And while peach season will soon be here and gone, every season is wonderful with Peaches!  For more photos of this fun little Rattie mix, please visit https://imageevent.com/newrattitude/peaches.Our adoption fee is $200 for adult dogs or $250 for puppies under 6 months old.

Story
Beauty's only skin deep? Not with Dot! Her uniquely colored coat is just an extra layer of charm on this delightful 2-year-old rat terrier, who is a beautiful blend of sweetness and energy. Dot's playful nature will have you laughing as she runs after a ball. In fact, as long as you're home most of the time and always ready to throw that ball, Dot would be delighted to be an only dog. But if you're not, she would enjoy having a canine companion close to her size (12 lbs.) as a playmate. Although she has the stamina for a 2-mile walk, she's happy with shorter, more frequent outdoor explorations (which also help her earn top marks in house-training). On those walks, Dot's busy neighborhood can offer distractions, but she's fine-tuning her leash skills and learning to take things in stride. Any children she meets are OK, but their small dogs? WAY better! Dot's sweet, serene side is equally impressive. She loves to cuddle and fits perfectly into any lap, making her the consummate companion for quiet nights at home. At bedtime, she'll sleep through the night in her crate or with you if allowed, and during the day, she can be crated for short periods with little fuss. Dot also rides well in a car inside her crate, even for long drives. Highly food motivated and an eager student, she has learned 'sit' and how to use a sandpapered board to file her nails. Curious, gentle, and funny, Dot is ready to learn more, explore new surroundings, and fill your home with love, laughter, and endless cuddles. Adopt Dot and experience the special love that only a pet like her can provide. For more insight into her amazing personality, take a look at Dot's photo album https://imageevent.com/newrattitude/dot .Our adoption fee is $200 for adult dogs or $250 for puppies under 6 months old.
