A rescued Rat Terrier available for adoption through New Rattitude, Inc.

Aazeena is a 3-year Rat Terrier/Chihuahua mix who weighs just 6 lbs. She is the best lap warmer around! Once she bonds with you, then she is totally your girl and nothing makes her happier than just hanging out with you. She is a very content and can entertain herself quite well as long as she has plenty of toys and a warm place to lie in the sun. Aazeena had not been treated well in her prior and so has some trust issues that she is learning to overcome. She is leery of new people and may take a few visits before she feels comfortable enough with them to let them pet her. Since she can get nippy if stressed, a rather quiet, adult-only home is required for her. Aazeena herself is on the quiet side and because she is so small, she would be a great apartment or condo dog. She walks well on leash and is reliably house trained and also potty pad trained, and she knows how to use a doggie door. She gets along well with dogs or cats, although she would prefer to have all of your attention. You can view Aazeena's photo album by CLICKING HERE and see a short video of her on Youtube HERE.
