Rescue Me ID: 15-07-25-00183RUM (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    RUM was born in a foster home on 1/25/15 as one of 4 babies. He was adopted and now has to be rehomed due to family issues..... He's great with kids and other dogs, if anything he's so friendly and loving to the neighbors that he wants to visit with them every day! He's only 15 pounds and won't get much bigger. He'd be great for an apartment dweller who can walk him on a leash and take him to visit other dogs in the dog park. He should NOT be left alone in the yard because he will want to wander (and he can be creative).

Rescue Me ID: 15-07-15-00347Chewie (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Chewie is one of our South Florida rescues. His owners turned him in to the high-kill shelter saying he was 'shy at first but warms up quickly, good with cats, dogs and kids'. What they DIDN'T mention when surrendering him is that he was Heartworm Positive! Chewie has now completed his heartworm treatment and he is ready for a home of his own. His fostermom says he's a real fire cracker. His little legs go a mile a minute and he loves to explore every nook and cranny that he can find. Chewie also loves to play with plush toys, nylabones & balls, and to cavort with the other dogs that are his size and smaller. However, Chewie has a bit of a ... (Read More)Napolean complex - he is great with most dogs he meets, but sometimes he will not like a certain dog. Chewie has been known to bark at (or even chase a cat), but the cats in his foster home have let him know that it's not a nice way to treat them, so he's working hard on respecting kitties. Chewie is totally crate-trained and walks well on a leash, though a harness would be the best way to walk him, because he's a little nervous about having his neck/collar messed with. Chewie has a great appetite and is a strong little solider. He endured his heartworm treatment like a champ and now he is waiting for his hero. He is available for adoption thru www.ratbonerescues.com (Less)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Lily is a very sweet dog that just wants human companionship. Her owner must surrender her due to health issues. She has only 3 days left. Please help her. UPDATE: I now have Lily and am only able to foster her for a short time. I can confirm she is a wonderfully sweet dog, is housebroken and gets along well with my German Shepherd. She is interested in my cat but has shown no aggression toward the cat or when she is eating next to my dog. She is leash trained and will heel and sit at the door while she waits for her leash to be attached. She will do well if she had a yard she could play in.

    ANNIE first came to our rescue when she was pregnant. She had four babies and everyone was adopted, even Annie!

No one else in the house is affected, and no one in her previous foster home either! Annie is small (about 14 pounds) sweet, loving, and really needs a great new permanent home! Everyone is so sad, but we have to do what is best for humans and dogs alike. If you can be her new family, please let us know!

They have been vaccinated and microchipped, will be in foster homes working on their socializing skills, getting neutered when they gain a little weight and then will be ready for a wonderful forever home! All are a little scared, but not at all aggressive.

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    There are times when you know that even if a dog is not fluffy and cute on the outside there is something in the inside pushing you to help. No dogs should be left behind for the only reason of a move to another state. This is exactly what happened to this funny guy called 'Tyke.' His former parents decided to bring him to the Kill Shelter and abandoned him, just like that. At that time we had seen a picture and he had hair but after only a week of stress in the kennel, he had lost all of it. He was so stressed that the staff could not even put him on the floor for adoption. This was the end for him!!! When we got the email telling us about ... (Read More)him and others we were not sure what we were getting really. The picture was too dark and blurry. Well, I can tell you that everything Tyke missed in beauty he got it in his personality. He is funny, talks to you engagingly, and would make a great companion to have conversation with. Tyke is layed back when he is at home. House broken, loves to cuddle. He is very friendly with people and other dogs. I promise you he will be a piece of conversation.. and just look at those ears, they are huge and straight up. He looks like a little Chinese Crest mix. Want to bring him to the Dog Park, no problem; and I can tell you that you will be noticed!!! Tyke, after being examined by our Vet, is now growing some hair back, cleaning up nicely, but will keep his personality for the rest of his life. Tyke is in Foster right now and there is absolutely no issues whatsoever with him in the house. Top Dog for sure. Want to meet him, please fill out an application on line at www.findahomegiveahome.com under forms, and call Isabelle at 239-281-0739 (Less)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament

    This boy lives life to the fullest. Plays well with other dogs, fetches his ball, enjoys his evening walk--Caleb is game for all activities. He is healthy, happy, and obedient. At 7 months old, Caleb still has his 'puppy-zest', but wishes to please. Caleb weighs approximately 45 lbs., and is nearly full grown. Ideal family pet, or as company for that lonely only dog. He is neutered, microchipped, fully vaccinated, and knows some basic commands. He knows to do his business outside, and will employ the 'doggy door'.

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Piper is our family pet. We just moved to South Florida from Alabama and brought Piper with us b/c she has been part of our family sice August 2011. After moving into our house, we realized Piper could get through the bars on our fence. We had planned to let her be an inside/outside dog. We can not let Piper be inside full-time b/c we have a one year old and two year old. Piper is not very trusting of small children and will snap at them if they mess with her. Piper is overall a great dog for a family without small kids. She is so loving and obedient. She gets so excited when you get home! She loves walks and will never potty in floor if ... (Read More)she gets two walks a day. She does not potty in her own yard. Piper has never chewed anything in our house. She sleeps in a cage in our bedroom at night. She is also a good guard dog. Piper does bark at other dogs on walks and really doesn't like other dogs. When we adopted Piper we already had two cats so she learned to like the cats, but it took time. Piper doesn't have any health problems. She has been spayed. She takes Trifexis once a month to prevent heart worms, parasites, and fleas. We also had a tracking/identification chip placed by the vet just in case she was ever lost. Piper will be in our home until we find a home that we feel is a good fit for her. Piper seems to like all adults, but gravitates towards soft spoken women. We love her very much and hope we can find her a very loving home. Please call me if you are interested. (Less)

Animal ID: 1479Jackie (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

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

    Meet Jackie! This very tiny girl weighs just under 10 lbs. and is about 5 years old. What she doesn't have in size, she makes up for in personality. Jackie usually has her nose in everything that is going on in the house. She is a very smart, playful girl who loves her toys, loves her people, and loves to give kisses. Jackie lives to please and she listens well. She is not much of a lap dog and doesn't really like to be picked up, but she is a devoted companion who wants to be near you in whatever room you are in. She is a great watchdog for her house as she will bark to alert you when a stranger is about, but she is not an excessive barker. ... (Read More)She is totally house trained and also crate trained. Jackie really enjoys going on walks and does well on leash. Jackie's left eye doesn't produce any tears, so she needs eye drops a couple of times a day. She is very good about getting her eye drops because she loves her 'good medicine' treat afterward! Jackie thrives in a calm environment and would be a perfect only dog or she would make a good companion to another 'mellow fellow.' She would be best in a home without young children or cats. While she loves people, they also should be generally calm and serene. A home where her person is around most of the time would be perfect, because Jackie suffers a bit with separation anxiety. To see some pictures of cute Jackie please visit http://www.imageevent.com/newrattitude/jackie. ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Jackie, 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.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Rat Terrier in Florida
    Rat Terrier Dogs can make good pets in Florida 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.
