Animal ID: 1648Paprika (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Young Adult

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

    This lively girl with the dramatic eyeliner is named Paprika. She is an alert, affectionate, and energetic one-year-old who would love the attention that an adoptive family would give her. She gets along congenially and playfully with other small dogs but is somewhat fearful of larger dogs (she weighs 17 lbs.) until she gets to know them. Paprika is reliably housetrained with a doggie door. She will sit nicely for her dinner, although if you are not getting it ready fast enough she will encourage you along by springing excitedly into the air like a pogo stick. She is gentle and has very nice house manners. She does well on leash, but is ... (Read More)nervous when cars pass by so needs practice to help her get her confidence up. At night she will sleep quietly in her crate or on a dog bed beside your bed (or in your bed if you will allow it), and each morning she will joyfully greet the day with wiggles, wags, and kisses. In the evenings, she morphs into a couch potato next to you on the sofa, relaxed and content. Please check out more photos of this darling girl at http://imageevent.com/beales/fosters/paprika. ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Paprika, 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.

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

    Hi, peoples! Jet here. I'm just going to say it now - I'm about the sweetest thing you'll ever meet. I was picked up by animal control as a stray, and my owners were never found. They had me posted as a Patton Terrier, but we don't know too much about them. I'm too tall for a Rat terrier and am definitely not a Jack, but who cares? I'm nothing short of awesome! I'm a handsome, long-legged young boy - maybe only 8 or 9 months - and am a little unsure of what's going on, but am getting so much love here. I'm still gaining my confidence and learning new things every puppy should know. I love everyone I meet, get along with with other dogs, ... (Read More)and am learning things quickly and easily. I will make some family a wonderful dog. (Less)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious 

    Frankie is a very sweet dog. She is fully house trained and enjoys being around people. She has been an indoor dog most of her life (eight years) and she has been an outdoor dog for the past two years. Her health is good according to her last check up a few months ago and she has lots of energy and is playful. She likes to take walks often. She is a very anxious / fearful dog when there are loud noises like thunder or gun shots. She is also scared of lightning flashes. She tends to panic and want to come inside because she wants someone to sit with her and pet her. I recently have gotten remarried and my two dogs I had are now ... (Read More)outdoor dogs. The reason for posting this adoption is because I recently fenced in my yard to keep her contained but she escapes and runs down a busy road whenever there are gunshots, thunder, lightning, etc. When she was an indoor dog, she would just come in a dog door and remain inside but that option is gone. I have had her for ten years and she means a lot to me so I would like you to contact me if you are going to have her be an indoor dog and well taken care of her last years left. (Less)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Dodger is a 6-8 pound, appr. 7-8 month old rat terrier / dachshund mix. He got busted for chasing chickens and had his life threatened, so rescue stepped in and interceded for this little, chicken loving pup. And he does like chickens...chicken salad, fried chicken, and grilled chicken. In the house, he is a great, little lap doggie. Full of curiosity and affection. He has learned where the dog door is on day one, so I suspect house training won't be hard. If you are interested in this spry little bundle of joy, you can apply for him at brantleyanimalrescuecoalition.weebly.com . The foster mom will contact you, answer any questions, ... (Read More)and ....if he is a good fit, walk you through the adoption process. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-05-19-00116Lily Belle (female)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious 

    Hi, humans. I'm Lily Belle and I'm probably one of the best-kept secrets at rescue. In fact, a lot of the volunteers don't even know about me. I arrived last year with several other dogs who were dumped outside the kill shelter by a backyard breeder. The other dogs were fairly socialized or adjusted to strange humans; I was not. I was terrified of everyone and hid in my doghouse every time anyone tried to come near me. I needed to be treated for heartworms, though, so I was lucky enough to land a place at the 'senior/foster center' with Floyd and the others while I adjusted and became more confident. It's taken me awhile to get used to ... (Read More)everything - and I mean everything, from walking on a leash to learning how to be a 'normal' dog. We were never given that opportunity at our puppy mill. I think I may be ready to meet the right person now, though. If you are willing to be patient and love me, I may/will be doing the same with you. We will just need to meet and see. Although I'm shy, I'm also very sweet, quiet and playful once you get to know me. My foster family says I'm no problem at all. I'm about 2 years old, around 13 lbs., crate-trained, housebroken, and get along with other dogs! Not all of those dogs at rescue can say that! (Less)

Animal ID: 1540Perrito (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    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 ... (Read More)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: 1370Barnabus (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

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

    Does this handsome boy look puzzled? That's because he is! Little Barnabus can't understand why his brothers and sisters, who were rescued at the same time, have all been adopted and he hasn't. Frankly, we're puzzled too. After all, this 9-lb. 3-1/2-year-old has worked so hard to be the best dog that he can be and to overcome fears that were probably the result of a very hard former life. He stands on his foster parents' laps and gives energetic kisses and is making progress at allowing himself to be picked up. When he is praised, his short tail flutters with joy! Although he can be wary at first with strangers, he does warm up when he sees ... (Read More)that his family is OK with the guests. He has been good around children ages 3-9 who have visited, but he needs to be monitored around the littlest ones. He gives them kisses and enjoys their company much of the time but gives a growl when he has had enough. Except for reluctance to share his toys, Barnabus gets along well with other dogs and looks to the other dogs in the household to learn his routines, so it would be fine if his adoptive family had another dog (as long as it is not a rowdy puppy). Although he seems to have a healthy prey drive when it comes to squirrels and crickets, he was recently tested around a cat and he did great! He did bark a bit at first, but once his mom showed the kitty some love, he wanted to participate and began giving the cat kisses! Barney is crate trained, and while crated during the day when his foster parents are at work, he does not go potty in his crate. He is house trained for the most part and quietly announces his need by standing near the door to be let out but needs extra encouragement to venture into inclement weather. One fear he has not overcome is his fear of being leashed, so he requires a fenced yard, but he has a fairly low energy level and much of the time is content to curl up on the couch next to you or to play gently, wiggle-waggling his tail as fast as he can. In fact, his greatest joy is playing with and just being with his humans. Barney wants a patient, loving family--one that won't mind taking the time he needs to warm up and fall in love. The feeling will certainly be mutual when he looks up at you with adoring eyes and his cute little bottom teeth start to show. Wouldn't you want that irresistible face staring back at you? Barney invites you to take a peek at more of his photos at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/barnabus . =======================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Barnabus, 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

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    ALABAMA is an older male who loves to go for a walk. He suffers from the aches and pains that come with age and would probably do well with someone who is older and understands those things. He loves a nice leash walk and might be a candidate for a little pain medication for his senior years but a little pampering would go a long way toward making him happy.

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.
