Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi! I am Prieto! I'm a 3-year old loving PATTERDALE TERRIER. I am a bit shy at first, but once I know I can trust you (especially if you give me food) you will be my favorite person. I am very loving and love to play fetch! I am also crate trained, potty trained and love walks. Since I am so little (only 10 lbs) large things may sometimes overwhelm me and I ask to be picked up. I also like it when things are calm around the house so I can relax. I love to give kisses and cuddle. My previous owners were a military family that fell in love with me after fostering me, but unfortunately were moving across country and could not keep me. Will ... (Read More)you be my furever one?

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected 

    My name is Casey. I am 4-5 months old female and a Terrier. My foster Mom says that in Kansas, where she used to live, they would call me a Rat Terrier. I was rescued from the Riverside County shelter with a badly broken leg. My leg is all well now. I was in a cast for almost 8 weeks. My foster family has taught me to get along well with other dogs, and I love the little kittens. But I have a lot of energy. I like to run; I like to chase balls-or other dogs. I am very little, and won't take up very much room. Please let me come live with you. I'm a lover. I'm spayed, and have a microchip and have had all my shots.

Animal ID: 1431Isabella (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Being the tiniest of the four pups born in early June, indefatigable Isabella could be called the runt of the litter, but don't tell her that! This little darling is becoming more adventurous and less shy every day and is growing healthy and strong, currently weighing about 6 lbs. While we never know for sure, we think she will end up being the size of her mama--about 12 lbs. She is excited at the prospect of getting to explore the great outdoors after she completes the last of her puppy vaccinations the second week of September and even more thrilled at the prospect of being ready to be adopted after she is spayed the following week. For ... (Read More)the time being, however, she has a grand time chasing her sisters and brother, rough housing with her mama, and squealing with delight after she dive bombs under the couch. She especially enjoys it when her foster mom lets her have supervised playtime outside the ex-pen, where she spends most of her day with her littermates and where they sleep peacefully each night. Isabella is doing well with her house training and has learned to use a 'potty park,' only having an accident if she is playing too hard to get back to it in time. Because she is on the small side, she will need a home where everyone will be super gentle with her. She is hoping that when she is a little older, her adopter will take her to a puppy class so she can be the very best dog, but for now all adorable Isabella needs is that special someone who wants a lifetime companion. You can see more photos of Isabella at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/isabella and a video at http://youtu.be/LVPd9H_m2s4 .========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Isabella, please go to New Rattitude's website at http://www.NewRattitude.org/adopt.htm, where there is detailed information and a link to our adoption application.

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Blind 

    Edward was a severely overweight, blind dog that was one of 20+ dogs confiscated from an animal hoarder, and brought to a high kill shelter. This beautiful 8 yr old boy was in terrible shape, and in danger of being euthanized due to his multiple medical conditions. When we learned that Edward had been placed on the euthanasia list, we stepped in to save him! This loving dog with the never quit attitude deserved better! While in the shelter, he had such severe painful glaucoma, that his eye had to be removed, and he's now completely blind, Even though Edward had little chance of getting adopted, we rescued him and got him the vet care he ... (Read More)deserves. He's lost weight, and getting the proper medication he needs. Edward has easily learned to get around without sight, has a lot of energy and is a very happy, playful boy! Edward has the best foster mom who loves him, and has helped him become a fantastic dog! Edward is looking for a guardian angel who realizes that not everyone can be perfect! Edward has a lot of love to give, and his courageous spirit is uplifting and inspiring to everyone he meets. Edward is house trained, walks well on a leash, fully independent around the house, friendly to everyone he meets, and even gets along well with other dogs! If you'd like to meet Edward, please complete our online adoption application found on dexterfoundation.com Providing a loving home to a truly deserving dog like Edward is very rewarding!

Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Mia and Abby are mother and daughter. They were abused and neglected by a cat hoarder.They spent a year and a half living in a crate. Their nails were so long they could not walk on the ground. They have come out of their shells quite nicely and are two of the sweetest girls I've ever fostered! They love to go for walks and walk well on and off leash. They LOVE car rides also and are so well behaved in the car. They are very gentle and still a bit timid around new people. They love to cuddle and sleep with you and will follow you everywhere. These two girls must stay together! Separating them is not an option as they are completely bonded. ... (Read More)Adoption fee is 150. for the pair.

Rat Terrier    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Anna-Marie is a 1-year-old, 12-lb. beauty, who gave birth to four adorable puppies just three weeks after coming into New Rattitude's care. She has been very busy being a terrific mama, but now that her puppies are weaned and she is getting her girlish figure back, Sweet Anna-Marie is ready to focus on finding a home of her own. She loves to play with other dogs, so she would very much like her home to have canine pals. She is friendly with everyone she meets--men, women, and kids--and even tolerates cats (with an occasional chase, if given the chance). She is house trained, knows how to use a doggie door, and can use potty pads, if ... (Read More)necessary. Anna-Marie was so busy tending to her pups that she did not get much time for learning commands and such, but she is currently learning some basics, including leash walking. Anna-Marie picks up things so quickly that with just a little training, perhaps a beginner puppy class, she is likely to become the 'perfect' dog. Anna-Marie invites anyone looking for a loving, young, and active companion to take a closer look at her in her online photo album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/annamarie or on her video at https://www.youtube.com/embed/mU-gFgirYpw . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Anna-Marie, please go to New Rattitude's website at http://www.NewRattitude.org/adopt.htm, where there is detailed information and a link to our adoption application.

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Dainty little Alicia is a 10-month-old Rat Terrier, who weighs 7.5 lbs. Alicia can be timid at first, but in no time at all, this love bug will warm up to you and begin to snuggle and give you little kisses. She likes to take stuffed animals and play 'keep away' from the other dogs in her foster home. She loves to run as fast as her little legs will carry her through the yard, playing with the bigger dogs. Alicia is reliably house trained using a doggie door and is working hard on her loose-leash walking and basic commands such as 'sit.' She knows how to 'kennel up' in her crate when it's time to eat, but at nighttime she sleeps on the ... (Read More)'people bed.'

Rat Terrier    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Spayed 

    Tessa is a very kind sweet gentle miniature rat terrier. My ex boyfriend could no longer keep her and needs to find her a home. She likes to be cuddled, is not much of a barker, eats very little and loves people. She would make a wonderful pet for an elderly person or a family with kids. She attaches to people easily which is why I ended up with her but I already have a dog and I travel too much to have 2 to have taken care of when I am gone. Lately she seems like she doesn't hear all the time. She is a sweet sweet dog and I hope I can find her a loving companion. Thank You

Animal ID: 14-07-21-00401Peaches (female)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed 

    Peaches - 5-years old (In October) - born October 2009 (A Rat Tail Terrier Mix) Introducing 'Peaches' and she is one of the sweetest, cutest little dogs in the world. I have been Fostering her for approximately 4 %BD months. I was willing to do it until a home could be found, however, the Owner did not place her with adoption facilities and now I must find her a family friendly home. I would keep her myself if I knew I could afford to take care of her properly and be home more often, but duty calls and I must work quickly. I would like a family so that she enjoys the real experience of a caring home. It would be nice for her to have an ... (Read More)experience with another pet, if possible, and hopefully the love of older children to keep her company from time to time. She is a medium energy dog. Children that are busy with their own lives, but can give her some intermediate love and affection would be great. Peaches was a rescue animal only to find herself in another unstable home. She was left in a cage for hours on end without food or water by an owner that did not take time to train her on how to become house broken and able to roam freely throughout her apartment; so please, if you accept this animal, do not ever place her in a cage; If you require a sitter in order to take vacations, or emergency family trips, I will be happy to assist if and whenever possible at my home if preferred, or I may be able to assist you in finding the right reliable sitter. Currently, Peaches is house-broken with a doggy door. She does not have a trigger to tell you that she needs to go out, she will simply approach you excitedly and it's a guessing game, however she has never used the bathroom in the house even when I had forgotten to remove the doggie door cover after we returned from an errands road trip. Peaches is a quick learner, very smart and playful. Although she is fine with younger children and has been great with the grandchildren (ages 6 to 10) I believe she would be best with older children (8 and above) because when playing she tires easily if there is too much activity of the pulling of the ears, tail, and all of the things over excited children may do. She devours toys due to her little sharp teeth, but is careful when playing. I like to rough play with her, but she understands and immediately softens if I say to her 'No, too hard.' She understands and lightens up; she just gets very excited while playing and loves to chase and be chased. Peaches is also great around other animals; dogs and cats. She once had a cat as her playmate. She weighs about 30-pounds and is a blond terrier mix per her medical paperwork. She is very loving and man - does she love to give and receive kisses. She is well behaved, knows to stay out of the kitchen if requested, likes to go for rides in the car and is a very relaxed rider, and hates smokers! (Less)

Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Needs Vaccinations 

    White Rat Terrier about 8 lbs. Ziggy was found wandering the side streets of Hesperia, Ca in 2013. Attempts to find his owners were unsuccessful. He has obviously been abused and traumatized by humans and is very shy and afraid of being picked up. However he will allow it reluctantly with no aggression shown. He has never even come close to biting or snapping at anyone but would rather hide. He has come a long way in social skills but would enjoy a quiet environment, perhaps with an older couple or retired person looking for a buddy. He has trust issues with humans but longs for companionship. I sit in the rocker and let him come to me ... (Read More)and that works okay. He will even jump in my lap. Move slow is the key to winning this little guy over. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Rat Terrier in California
    Rat Terrier Dogs can make good pets in California if they match your IifestyIe. The Rat Terrier is a small breed of hunting dog also sometimes known as a Feist. Rat Terriers are vivacious, playful, and bold. This breed is great with children. Adult Rat Terriers adapt well to adoption. Rat Terriers are very smart and trainable. This breed can live in an apartment but needs plenty of vigorous exercise each day. Rat Terriers enjoy romping in a fenced yard, but because they are enthusiastic diggers, fences should be buried or reinforced around the base.
