|Animal ID: 1717Shoshone (female)|
Looking at Shoshone's bright eyes, affectionate nature, and confidently wagging tail, you'd never guess that she just spent the last few months abandoned for reasons unknown at a boarding facility, which she found terrifying. Just 3 years old and in the prime of life, she is ready to put the past behind her and pledge her devotion to a new family. She is a smart and sweet 13-lb. snuggler, who is eager to greet and befriend new people as well as other dogs. Shoshone is house trained, walks well on leash, sits on command, and loves to jump into the car for a ride. She will sleep in a crate at night if you like, but she'd greatly prefer to share a tiny piece of your bed. She does demonstrate some evidence of having been mistreated in the past, cowering and groveling if she thinks she has displeased you, so she needs gentle and consistent handling to help her gain confidence that no one will ever hurt her again. She has such a bright, happy spirit and desire to please that in a loving, supportive household she is going to absolutely flourish and bring great joy to her new family. Please check out more photos of Shoshone in her online photo album at http://imageevent.com/beales/fosters/shoshone . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Shoshone, 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.

emale, Chihuahua/Rat Terrier mix, 8 lbs., 2 yo., fully vaccinated/not yet spayed, HW? I came to the HART with my sister Ashley. We are so close we cannot stand it when we are apart. We found ourselves out on the street (still trying to figure that out) when we were picked up and brought to the shelter. It has taken us quit some time to even let the staff at the shelter touch, hold and pet us. We have finally decided that they are good folk and mean us no harm. If you would like to adopt me you will have to make room for my sister and you will need patience while we adjust to you and your ways. We really do want a new home and will be good and loving pets.

|Animal ID: 1709Sioux (female)|
How big is YOUR heart? Sweet Sioux has one of the biggest hearts we've ever seen...literally. It's so big that it fills her chest cavity and makes it hard for her to breathe deeply. Worse than that, it has a slow, irregular rhythm that doesn't do a good job of circulating blood throughout her little 15-lb. body. So 12-year-old Sioux probably does not have a very long life ahead of her. But she greets each day with a sweet, gentle, happy disposition and an enthusiastically wagging tail. Who would adopt a dog that likely has only a few months left to live? Someone who wants an affectionate and loyal companion...who appreciates a dog that is remarkably easy to care for...and who has enough compassion to offer an older gal a comfortable, safe, and loving home in which to pass her remaining days. Sioux is house trained and has great house manners. She is quiet and calm and self sufficient. She walks well on leash but is quite slow due to a little lameness in her hind end, and because of her heart problems, she does not require walks or any exercise beyond regular potty breaks. Her preference would be for a home without stairs where someone is home with her most of the time to provide plenty of potty breaks. Sioux gets along very sweetly with people and with other dogs. Her vision and hearing aren't as sharp as they used to be, but she still knows when you get within 3 feet of the treat bag or her dinner bowl and will do a little happy dance for you. Sioux's medical condition is not one that can benefit from treatment, so she does not have any ongoing veterinary needs or expenses. Because she most likely will cross the Rainbow Bridge sometime in 2016 (although that is not certain, of course), some compassionate donors have subsidized her adoption fee, hopefully making it easier for someone with an equally big heart to make the decision to give her a final loving home. Please check out the photos of Sioux in her online photo album at www.ImageEvent.com/beales/fosters/sioux . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Sioux, 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.

|Rescue Me ID: 16-01-17-00430Saffy (female)|
Saffy is the tiniest big sister ever. Saffy - a Rat Terrier - is the oldest of 6 lucky females rescued from a neglectful home in the summer of 2015. When she was spayed, the vet estimated Saffy to be a little over 7 years old. Saffy is a velcro doll. She will find comfort curling up in the tiniest of spaces - as long as they are near a human. She is a gentle soul and great with other dogs.

|Rescue Me ID: 16-01-11-00139Lola (female)|
Hi I'm Lola! I'm a 5 year old fun mixed-dog who loves to be around people. I prefer a home with someone present to give me extra love, as my current owner works long hours. I'm about 30 lbs. and enjoy cuddling, warming your lap and taking long afternoon naps. I don't do so well with other dogs, as I like to be the Queen. A fenced in yard would be so good to run and play in. I love to take car rides, too. I sit so good in the seat and watch out the window. I am up to date on my shots and heartworm free. Give me a call and maybe I can come home with you! :)

|Rescue Me ID: 16-01-07-00346Buzz (male)|
Great, sweet dog, found as a stray about a month ago. Work 12 hours a day and cannot give him the attention and care that he needs. Crate trained, leash trained, and have been working on house training (had NO training when I found him) About 75% house trained, but he is learning quickly. Will do best with kids to keep him entertained and a fenced yard to run his energy off in.

|Animal ID: 1662Bitsi (female)|
Bitsi is a playful and affectionate 1-year-old, who weighs 12 lbs. She came to New Rattitude very pregnant, and despite her youth, Bitsi was a wonderful mom. Now that her pups are older, Bitsi loves nothing more than a romp or chase with the other dogs in the household and gets along well with all of them. After several unsuccessful attempts to play with the resident cats, she mostly ignores them. When Bitsi's pups were young, she did not like to go far, so she used pee pads to do her business. Now that she is ready for some 'me' time, Bitsi goes out through the doggie door and into the fenced yard to go potty. Although Bitsi would probably adapt well to any home, she would especially love to have a canine companion. Wouldn't you love to give this sweet little mama a turn at being your baby? ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Bitsi, 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.

|Animal ID: 1352BlueBelle (female)|
Beautiful BlueBelle is a unique lady looking for a very special family. She was born into puppy mill conditions and lived almost four years birthing puppies in a deprived environment. She is around 5 years old and a small 12 lbs. BlueBelle was classified as semiferal and overcame many challenges to learn to live in a home and have minimal interactions with humans. She is still learning and needs a family who understands how best to gently, patiently help her adapt. BlueBelle has lived peacefully with a cat and lives with family dogs and a changing roster of foster dogs. She can be adamant about keeping her space to herself around other dogs and can also snuggle or act playful with those same dogs when she's in the mood. She will need at least one dog companion to help her feel at home and show her the doggie routine. She is house trained in her current environment. She would appreciate an adult-only home that tends to be calm and can let her safely grow at her own pace. To give you an idea of her pace, it took 18 months for BlueBelle to ask to be petted. She still has many fears and a phobia of thunder. She does not yet walk on leash. Her exercise currently consists of walking a large yard, jumping and racing around the house in anticipation of a meal, and some rehab exercises. BlueBelle is finishing rehabilitation for a healed back issue and for luxating patellae ('dislocating knees,' common in small dogs). If you are looking for a sweet dog to love and nurture while carefully helping to widen her world, BlueBelle is your girl.

This adorable little guy is Hughley! He is a rat terrier mix who is extremely friendly, good with dogs, and good with adults and children. As you can see in the picture, his tail is almost never still! He is energetic but not hyper, and he needs a human to belong to forever. Hughley has gotten a clean bill of health from the vet, is UTD on shots, and has his microchip. He will be neutered prior to adoption. An application, personal/vet reference, and adoption fee applies. Contact us today to learn more about your new best friend!

|Animal ID: 1598Gaia (female)|
Her name is Gaia, but we think you could also call her the 'Comeback Kid.' That's because this amazing little 8-year-old came into rescue with partially paralyzed legs. (Although we do know that she had surgery in 2008 to repair a ruptured disc, she was surrendered with limited medical information.) However, since entering foster care, 14-lb. Gaia has been in an intensive therapy program to strengthen her atrophied legs, and that therapy, along with acupuncture treatments, has helped her make wonderful progress. She is now walking most of the time and can even run and climb shallow stairs. And where she previously was bothered by frequent urinary tract infections--a common problem for paralyzed dogs--requiring a diaper at night, a healthy regimen of wet food, chicken or beef broth to increase her fluid intake, and a daily cranberry supplement has pretty much eliminated the infections and, along with it, the need for the nighttime diaper. Gaia also does a relatively good job of going potty outside during the day, and she gets along well with the other dogs and the kitties in the household and plays often. She has spunk and a can-do attitude and tries sooooooo hard to do everything the other guys do. There's a special home out there--perhaps yours?--waiting for this little girl who is as affectionate as she is tough. You will find her determination an inspiration and her appreciation, shown with lots of cuddles and kisses, a joy to receive!========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Gaia, 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.

|Animal ID: 1585Lola (female)|
Lola, L-O-L-A, Lola. . . OK, maybe the Kinks weren't really singing about a dog, but this little Rat Terrier mixed with a touch of Chihuahua is certainly adorable enough to inspire a song! Rescued in the spring of 2015 from a Georgia animal control facility, where she had been turned in as a stray, this lively girl is about 2 years old and weighs 18 lbs. She loves to play, and like a typical Rattie, she has those familiar playful bursts of energy, but perhaps due to earlier abuse, Lola can also be unpredictable and aggressive toward people and other animals. She has a bite history, and the behavior is triggered by petite females and children. She is a work in progress with coaching and training underway. On the flipside, Lola loves 'her humans' and is very protective of everyone in her foster household. After a warm-up period which included some altercations, she now plays well with the two other dogs in the home. She is a good watchdog and will alert you when she hears a knock or strange noises.

|Animal ID: 1540Perrito (male)|
Compact Perrito packs a lot of personality into his 8-lb. handsome body, which has the typical short-legged shape of a 'Type B' Rat Terrier, also known as a Teddy Roosevelt Terrier. His estimated age is 9, and while that's only middle-aged for this long-lived breed, it's definitely old enough for him to know that he's ready to settle down with a very special someone. Not one to shirk his domestic responsibilities, Perrito likes to keep busy and will follow you around the house to stay in the know about the goings-on and to 'help out' with chores. He is fabulous at finding lost objects and helping to 'sort' clothes for the laundry (Thank goodness he is too short to assist at 'cleaning' the toilet bowl.) There's even a video showing him 'recycling,' as well as other clips and photos, in his online album at http://www.imageevent.com/newrattitude/perrito . In Perry's free time, he loves to take walks and knows how to do so politely on leash. He is house trained and paper trained, and he's a whiz at clicker training. He's using it to learn alternatives to some of his old ways of dealing with the world. One of those old ways was to become compulsive about securing toy-like objects and food when overly stressed. (Perrito's foster parent will be happy to help with staging his move to his new local forever home to help reduce the chance that the transition may trigger the old compulsive behaviors.) Another old way was to bite first and ask questions later, but now he is learning that humans can pay attention to less drastic forms of communication, such as a lip curl or a growl, so he doesn't have to go too far. When asked, Perrito presents the side of his neck for petting and enjoys a vigorous back massage, but he's still working on accepting other kinds of touch. Perrito needs his VSS (very special someone) to help him follow a simple diet to manage his chronic pancreatitis. He will do best in an all-adult home as he can guard food and toys and is frightened of quick movements. With help from his foster parent, he gets along with the six dogs in his foster home, but he would also be content being the only dog. Perrito has so far been indifferent to cats. If you are that special human who can give this boy some understanding, loving structure, and security, you'll earn the devotion of a loyal companion. ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Perrito, 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.

|Animal ID: 1437Ellie (female)|
Ellie is a special, quirky girl, who is longing for a special (though not necessarily quirky) human with whom to share her life. The quirks are as follows: She can be a little snappy and headstrong about when she wants to go to bed or where she wishes to sit and can demonstrate her displeasure when you don't agree with her. You also have to make her think it's her idea to put on her harness and collar after a bath. If you take it slow and easy, she does very well. She's afraid of small children and needs to be in an adults-only home. She also needs to be an only dog or with a dog who will let her be boss, and because of her high prey drive, she needs a home without pocket pets or cats. Finally, she is slow to trust, so her adopter needs to be willing to meet her beforehand so that Ellie and her new family can begin to bond before she goes home. But wait! Here are the things that make her oh-so-special: This 9-1/2-year old 14-lb. girl bonds with her humans completely. If you've never felt the warmth that emanates from the adoring eyes of a senior dog, then you are missing out! Ellie will always be there for you--watching television with you, 'working' on the computer with you from her bed in the office, protecting you from squirrels and chipmunks from her window seat in the dining room, or exploring the backyard as you two stroll about.This special girl is also practically a pro when it comes to playing with toys, earning the title of 'Puzzlemaster' at her foster home in recognition of her ability to locate treats in both paw and nose puzzles. (She alternates her time between her beloved toys and those equally important naps.) She is house trained to a doggie door, or she will ask to be let outside, too. And Ellie loves to go in the car, wearing her harness at all times so that she is ready to go at a moment's notice. She even recognizes when her foster parents are heading to PetSmart! Yes, Ellie has her quirks, but she is full of appreciation for the little things in life. If you're home much of the time and have a patient heart that appreciates the little things like the love of a quirky dog, then we've got a 'special' on for you today--her name is Ellie. See more pictures and video of Ellie at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude.elliehamptonga . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Ellie, 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 Georgia|
Rat Terrier Dogs can make good pets in Georgia 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.
