Animal ID: 360Gabriel (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Not Good with Cats 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Are you up for a dog with Personality Plus? Gabriel is a handsome, 22-lb. athletic fellow who really wants to be your pal. He is active, alert, and full of playful energy. He would love to be your companion on walks, jogs, and hikes, and he will keep your throwing arm limber, as he will happily fetch and catch a ball whenever you are willing to throw it. Now about 7 years old, Gabriel has a maturity that includes perfect house training, great house manners, and a repertoire of obedience commands including sit, shake, lie down, wait, leave it, spin, and come. (He knows what 'quiet' means, but has a hard time with that one when he is very ... (Read More)excited.) Gabe is very alert and makes a terrific watchdog. He is extremely social and likes all people, and while he is usually very gentle, his exuberance when he gets riled up can be too intense for very little children, who often find him intimidating, so he would do best in a home where any kids are sturdy and dog-savvy and know how to respect a dog's space. Gabriel loves to play tug-of-war, chase squirrels, and destuff any toy. But while he does have high spirits and a love for activity, he also has a mellow side, and he usually spends the bulk of the day napping quietly in a dog bed beside his foster mom's computer, and he sleeps quietly in his crate all night long. He has been crate trained and was accustomed to spending long hours in the crate in his former home, but in his foster home he has been completely reliable when left loose in the house without getting into any mischief. Gabriel gets along extremely well with other dogs; he especially likes little ones and lets them be the boss but he often needs some time and structure to acclimate to bigger dogs. He does not like cats. Because of Gabe's love for activity, he would do best in a home with a fenced yard so that he does not need to rely on just leashed walks to get out his energy. He will be a fun dog for an active, dog-savvy family, who can give him plenty of stimulation. You will find him to be a very eager and quick learner. If you are looking for a handsome, alert, smart dog with an outgoing and quirky nature, please check out lots more pictures and videos of Gabriel in his on-line photo album at http://imageevent.com/beales/fosters/gabriel. ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Gabriel, 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: 14-08-28-00632Roscoe (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    This little guy has come so far. Sitting so scared at a high kill shelter and now enjoying life with his foster family. He is under 10 pounds, has the cutest tooth that hangs out. He is such a mixture and very unique. He loves kids! Gets along well with other dogs too. He is a little guy that just wants to know love forever. He is really loyal and protective of his foster or new owners. Will need some someone special to show him it is okay to trust everyone he meets.

Animal ID: 1437Ellie (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

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

    At the shelter, they called Ellie a 'snarky senior,' but they had it all wrong. This little 8- to 9-year-old waif was several pounds underweight, and her mouth, riddled with infected teeth, hurt! Since coming to New Rattitude, Ellie has gained a whopping 1.5 lbs. and has less than 1 lb. to go before she reaches her optimal weight of 10-11 lbs. Those nasty teeth have been taken care of, and Ellie has gone from snarky to snuggly. Not surprisingly, it can take her a little time to warm up to people, but after she trusts you, she is your best friend! She will be content to lie on the sofa with you while you watch TV or read and is most ... (Read More)grateful for a gentle belly rub. She loves to take walks in the sunshine when it's cool outside--not too hot, mind you--and she adores being talked to, so much so that she just might whine if she can't find you. Otherwise, Ellie is a quiet girl, who would do best if you work from home or are home most of the time. She doesn't like to spend long periods in a crate, but since she is house trained and not at all destructive, she has not really needed to be restricted to a crate when her foster mom leaves the house. Ellie gets along with other dogs most of the time, but she doesn't like anybody messing around with her mouth--again, no surprise there--and she can snap in warning if she thinks something or someone might hurt her, so she should be in a home without small children or very active dogs. Ellie has a heart murmur and a bit of a cough, but the vet is hopeful that these conditions will improve as she continues to recover from the dental infection. Ellie thinks that her recent rescue from the shelter, along with the medical care and the love she has received of late, is a fairy tale come true, but like any fairy-tale princess, she is waiting for her 'knight in shining armor' to appear. Wouldn't you like to be the one to put the 'happily ever after' ending on this story? See more pictures of enchanting 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.

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

Health: Vaccinations Current 

    Sweetest cutest little dog ever. Loves people and loves to be petted non-stop. His owner of 7 yrs has to go to assisted living in Alpharetta, GA and will miss him terribly. Would love it if someone locally would adopt him so he could visit his previous owner sometimes.

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

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

    Suzy is about 6 years old, and weighs 11lbs. She is loving and loyal, she listens most of the time, and she loves to sleep under the covers. Unfortunately she spends all day alone, and she definitely craves more interaction with people and other dogs. She gets pretty excited about things, but once she calms down she is a mellow cuddle bug.

    Molly is a sweet, energetic 10 lb 3-year old Chihuahua-Rat Terrier mix. Litter box trained, house broken, goes outside too. Kennel trained. Fully vetted/all shots current 8/1/14. She's a very cool, athletic little dog who LOVES to run around outside in our backyard, but she's a solid lapdog inside. Not destructive. She thrives on attention and is a constant companion.

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    VEIL is a terrier/ chihuahua mix who is a little shy and a little bit of a prissy girl but cute as all get out and ready for her comfortable lap. She will be happy just watching T.V. with you but is very good on a leash. This pup would do best in a home with adults only......is a little nervous about children. She weighs about 20 pounds and believes she was born to be spoiled!

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Adriana Smith is an adorable little girl is a doll baby! Upon arriving at the shelter, Adriana would not allow anyone to get close to her, let alone leash walk her. Now Adriana is beginning to like her regular walks and absolutely loves being held! She also really enjoys her afternoon brushings and is known to roll over so that her belly can be adequately rubbed! She would make the perfect addition to a quieter home, as she still does get a little scared in new situations. If you are looking for a sweet, loveable, lap dog, this is definitely your girl!

Rescue Me ID: 14-07-21-00114Milo (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious 

    Milo is very affectionate and craves attention. He is housetrained and prefers to be indoors. He becomes anxious when left alone. He may do well with some other dogs, but fights with the female dog in our household so must find a new home. He is not used to small children and may nip if they become rowdy but will do fine with older children. He doesn't require a lot of outdoor activity but is an excellent ratter and will quickly catch small rodents. His ideal situation would be a small household in which he is the only dog and can interact with people during the day with occasional playtime outside.

    [Read About Natural Seizure Care] Mia is a 10 year old, neutered female Rat Terrier. She has a sweet temperment and is good with most people. Like most of us, she'll decide in the first 5 minutes of meeting them whether she likes them or not.

Animal ID: A464254Oliver (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Very Low Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi, I'm Oliver. I'm an older guy, but don't let that bother you - we small dogs usually live a lot longer than big dogs - sometimes 20+ years - so I'm only middle-aged. I'm a Rat Terrier, but since I'm older, I've mellowed out and don't have the energy level of a young terrier. I weigh about 20-25 pounds, but I could use a diet! I'm house trained and mostly like to lounge around the house and maybe take short walks a few times a week. I currently live with several dogs of all sizes and ages and I get along with everyone fine, but I don't play or wrestle with the other dogs. I never chew things or get into any trouble when my foster ... (Read More)parents leave me to have free roam of the house. I'd love a human companion or two that stays home most of the time so I can just be in the same room and get petted every once in a while. I bond quickly and strongly with people. I don't like to be separated from my people or stay in a crate all day, but I'm not an in-your-face dog. I'm happy to stay at the foot of the bed or on the other side of the sofa while my foster mom sleeps or works on her laptop. My dream home would be with someone who is retired or works from home so I have constant companionship. I may whine when left alone, so I don't think I would do best in an apartment where my people would be gone all day. I have some hair loss on my back and little stub tail - the vet says it's probably due to allergies. My foster mom is feeding me grain-free, fish-based food from Costco, and my hair is looking better and I don't itch as much. My hair may not ever 100% grow back, but it's much better, and a little hair loss doesn't bother me if it doesn't bother you! My foster mom doesn't know if I've ever lived with kids or cats, but I get along with dogs of all sizes (as long as they don't pick on me or try to climb all over my person - then I'll bark!), so cats shouldn't bother me. I can get a little testy when I'm picked up suddenly, though, so maybe a home without young children would be best for me. I'm neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, including rabies, heartworm negative, and microchipped. My foster mom took me to get my teeth cleaned in July, so they are nice and white now, and the vet said my blood test results were perfect. My adoption fee is free during September, and the regular fee is $85. If you are looking for a little companion who will be devoted to you and is no trouble at all, please contact adoptions@fultonanimalservices.com to fill out an adoption application and meet me! You can also email my foster mom at ashleyjfreedman@gmail.com to learn more about me. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-06-28-00477Stella (female)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    CLICK LINK FOR MORE PICTURES! https://flic.kr/s/aHsjZk4M4x Stella is looking for her forever home. She came to us as a puppy at 8 weeks old almost completely self- potty trained. She is EXTREMELY intelligent but can be stubborn at times. Stella loves attention and during the day stays outside on a running line in the company of another dog (a jack Russell terrier) and they play very well together. At night time Stella come inside and stays in her crate until the next morning. We have never had an issue with her using the bathroom in the house. Whenever she needs to go out she will whimper to let you know, though we do not typically take ... (Read More)her out in the middle of the night. She is mostly black with white markings on her chest and feet; has brown eyes. She is a sweet baby and would do well in a family where she would get plenty of exercise and have room to roam. She would be an excellent farm dog. She is not in immediate danger of being sent to a shelter, however, we are only able to care for her for a short while longer. Please, if you are interested, I would be happy to answer any further questions you have regarding this sweet puppy. We prefer that she either be in a fenced in yard, or go to a home way out in the country where she can roam freely. She would not do well in a chain link kennel unless it was just for the night time. Whoever receives this baby will absolutely fall in love with her. Guaranteed. (Less)

Animal ID: 1428Laurel (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

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

    Laurel is a gentle, easy-to-care-for gal with good house manners, including reliable house training. She is pretty independent, as she likes to quietly hang out near you but not right underfoot and she isn't demanding for attention. Laurel is about 5-6 years old and weighs 12 lbs. She is very food motivated and her patient, pleading eyes can be quite persuasive! Plus she will sometimes stand up on her back legs and hold there looking at you hopefully like an adorable meerkat. Laurel has two other cute mannerisms. One is that she will often sing along with you if you pick a good song for yodeling. And the other is that she watches other ... (Read More)animals on TV and tries to interact with them! In her foster home Laurel mostly does fine with the other dogs, either ignoring them or playing with them, depending on the other dog's personality. She can be a little bossy, though, especially at dinner time, so she would prefer an easy-going companion or would be fine with being an only dog. Laurel has learned to sit on command and responds well to a calm 'no.' When the leash comes out, her tail starts wagging and she is eager to go for a walk or a ride in the car. Laurel likes people, including children, and likes to be petted, but like a good watch dog, she will initially bark at strangers to the home. She will chase squirrels in the yard and wants to also chase the cats she spies on her walks. Please visit Laurel's on-line album to see more photos of her: http://imageevent.com/beales/fosters/laurel. =======================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Laurel, 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.

    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.

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious 

    Hi, there! I'm Dixie and I just landed here in the 'heart of the south' rescue. Yeah, I know, I'm a little more Rat than Jack, but you know these people '| I came from a place that was busted for cruelty and hoarding. (Yes, the same one as Sam, Bailey, Sadie, Pebbles, Rocky and Hannah.) I lost several of my friends to malnutrition and neglect, but I made it out alive! I have been staying in foster care, but my time ran out. I needed to go somewhere '| quickly. They had to do some shuffling, but they found a space for me. Not sure how they do this all the time for dogs like me'| I just know it takes them a long time to scoop, feed and ... (Read More)clean all of us everyday '| and they all have jobs '| I am such a sweet, gentle girl; a little skittish with strange new objects (took me awhile to warm up to the camera), but very loving and willing to trust. I have a couple of swollen nipples they are concerned about, so I need to see the vet. I've apparently had babies recently, so that may be why. Like Bailey and Sadie, fleas have sadly attributed to some hair loss on my tail and, unfortunately, like Sam, I am heartworm positive. I will need to go through slow-kill treatments before I will be available for adoption; however, we are open to a foster home for me in which to heal during the time I need to stay calm and let the treatments do their work.

Animal ID: 1271Willy (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

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

    As soon as Willy showed up in the shelter, the workers there noted that this well-behaved, frightened fellow was certainly someone's pet. Found wandering the streets, he looked as if he had lost his people and had been looking for them for a long time. The problem was, nobody turned up to claim him, so New Rattitude stepped in to help Willy find new people to love. Weighing about 15 lbs., Willy is a healthy, laid-back 7-year-old, who can be a little shy at first but soon will be right by your side. He is loyal and devoted to his humans, and he announces the arrival of any strangers on home turf with a bark. He knows how to sit and is ... (Read More)perfectly house trained. He enjoys the simple, quiet life befitting a gentleman of his maturity. He prefers chilling with humans over chasing the squirrels, and while he is slowly learning how to play, he doesn't do so often. He likes to slip into his harness to take a walk, but he knows that the walk is as much about the experience as it is about the exercise, so he will stop to smell the roses and anything else he happens to encounter. At night, he sleeps in a dog bed but loves nothing better than hopping up and getting under the covers to snuggle with his foster mom in the morning. Too polite to have enemies, Willy tolerates the cat in his foster home and even leaves his foster mom's chickens alone. He gets along OK with the other dogs, as long as they don't nudge their way in between him and his foster mom, but he certainly wouldn't complain if he was the only dog. He hopes his new people will be patient with him and understand that riding in cars is no fun and that it doesn't feel good to get picked up, but he is trying to relax if he's handled gently.
