New Rattitude, Inc.

New Rattitude is a national, all-volunteer non-profit rescue/adoption agency whose mission is to rescue Rat Terriers (and mixes that are predominantly Rat Terrier) from imminent death at animal shelters, the streets, abusive/neglectful homes, or from owners who can no longer keep a dog, and to rehome the dogs into new and permanent, screened and approved adoptive homes. Each dog rescued is cared for in a safe and nurturing foster care environment where he or she receives appropriate medical care, a high quality diet, training and socialization. To achieve these ends, the organization is involved with transportation, volunteer recruiting and training, mentoring, fund-raising, and establishing and maintaining other programs deemed helpful to achieving the mission of rescuing and re-homing Rat Terriers.

Meet Gloria (LA)

  I may not be as young as some of the pups you see on New Rattitude's website, but don't count me out! I'm one of the most beautiful, and the proof is in the touch and feel of my silky smooth fur and my name(s). I'm officially Gloria, but my foster mom calls me Goldie, the name my original person gave to me. I've had 18 years' experience at being a doggy diva, and I'm not ready to retire. I weigh 11 lbs., and to keep me going strong in this gorgeous body, I eat a prescription diet (which I love!) for early kidney disease and take a special pill for arthritis. Together these two age-defying miracles cost about $50/month, but look at me! I'm worth it, don't you think?       My favorite things to do are to take short leash walks and to nap! When the leash comes out, I start to dance and sing! I love my little walks! I also love riding in the car; it doesn't have to be something special. Even a trip around the block is a delight.       I'm reliably house-trained as long as you can take me out when I need to go. Just be aware that we gals of a certain age don't always get a lot of advance notice. I'll usually need to get up once during the night to go out and get a drink of water. It comes with age, y'all.       This golden girl would live to spend her golden years with a human golden gal. A nice quiet home, no kids, maybe one other senior dog who doesn't try to jump on me. What a golden opportunity for you and me! You can see more of my beautiful self in my photo album at .   NOTE: Adopters should live close enough to Denham Springs, Louisiana, to make multiple visits in order to ease the transition to a new home.

Adoption Process
application, personal references check, vet reference check, telephone interview, home visit, temperament match, adoption contract and adoption fee.

Look for other dogs for adoption!
