|Rescue Me ID: 17-10-21-00169Remey (male)|
Meet the debonnaire Remey! Remey, as his name suggests, is a true 'Ladies man.' He is super sweet, loves to give kisses, and is an expert snuggler. Remey is 5 months old and is up to date on shots, dewormed, neutered, and microchipped. He is 9 pounds and is expected to remain small when full grown (well under 20 pounds). He is definitely a Rat Terrier mix but the vet who cared for him is also convinced he is mixed with Whippet or Italian Greyhound. Remey was rescued from a rural kill shelter by Tri-State Pet Rescue. He is being fostered and is learning quickly the ropes on potty training and sleeps all night in his crate like a champ! He also gets along well with his foster pack (2 males and 2 females). His ideal home will have a fenced yard (he can run like the wind!) and either a doggie playmate or a human with a lot of time for him. No small kids (12 and up is OK) since he is so small and delicate. Please see all pictures and videos below for a glimpse of this gorgeous boy! https://youtu.be/ODlF6d5YI_0 https://youtu.be/povrK6SYUwA https://youtu.be/WK2iiR9zGD8 https://youtu.be/2hc3dHpgRDo https://youtu.be/2YZX-3re8ko (Less)

|Rescue Me ID: 17-10-16-00049Minnie (female)|
Minnie came to us terrified, due to abuse or negligence. She has slowly come out of her shell but will need an adopter who will be patient and kind and will continue to coax and comfort her as she learns to trust humans. She loves being in the sun, playing with other dogs, chasing bugs and making a nest of blankets when it's chilly. She doesn't growl or bark and would probably do well with cats. Please give her a second chance at a new life full of love, something she's never known. Go to hsnwga.org to apply for her. Located in Dalton, Ga

|Rescue Me ID: 17-10-14-00056LADDER (male)|
Sweet, friendly puppy that was found at a dumpster. He is a mixed breed, but we are unsure of what breeds--Rat Terrier is only a guess! He is very playful, loves toys and has a ton of personality.

|Animal ID: 2004Daisy (female)|
Daisy is so happy and healthy that it's hard to believe someone abandoned this gentle little miss. Weighing 12 lbs., Daisy is an approximately 2-year-old Rattie mix (with a touch of dachshund perhaps), who has big, bright brown eyes that will melt your heart. Daisy loves to cuddle and to be right in the center of things. She's good with other dogs and older children, who would know how to behave around a small dog. Daisy is house-trained and well-mannered, barking only occasionally when she has something important to tell you. She walks nicely on a leash, knows 'sit,' and is learning other commands. Daisy thinks she would love to use those warm, dark eyes to gaze at you every day. We think she's dropping a very unsubtle hint! Check out more photos and a couple of videos of Daisy at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/daisy. ------------------------------------------------------ IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING DAISY, 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: 1973Rocky (male)|
Spend a few minutes gazing into Rocky's soulful eyes, and you'll realize that he's saying, 'Hey, human, do you know how much I love being here with you?' This 20-lb. Rat Terrier has a wise face and a sweet disposition that suggests that while he's experienced a lot in his 8 years, none of it measures up to this very moment that he's spending with you. His touch of arthritis certainly won't keep him from enjoying a leisurely morning walk with lots of sniffing breaks, and his slight hearing loss just means that he doesn't do a lot of barking and sleeps soundly at night. He is house-trained (aside from the occasional 'excitement pee' when Foster Mom comes home from a work trip), and he knows how to use a dog door. Every person and dog Rocky meets is a friend, and given his strong connection to people, he should be with someone who's home most of the day. If, like Rocky, you're someone who treasures the simple pleasure of being with a loyal companion, then you may have just found your canine soulmate. For more photos of Rocky, please see his photo album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/rocky. ------------------------------------------------------ IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING ROCKY, 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: 1994Dik-dik (male)|
Lively Dik-dik greets each new day with great enthusiasm. Life is all about playing, exploring, learning, eating, and napping. Oh, let's not forget following his foster parents around the house to make sure that they aren't up to anything fun that he might miss! Dik-dik is an adorable 1-year-old Rat Terrier (or possible Rattie mix), who currently weighs 13 lbs. He still needs to fill out a bit and is going to look even handsomer at his ideal weight of about 14 lbs. Dik-dik is still a little wary of new people and sudden hand movements. He seems to have been grabbed a lot in his past, so he tends to be suspicious and avoid what he thinks might be an attempt to 'get' him. When he becomes trusting, however, he is relaxed and cuddly, seeking out affection, carrying his toys all over the house, and wanting to spend his time near his foster parents, wherever that might be. His house-training has been excellent over the past several weeks in foster care, and he does know how to use a dog door. He really enjoys the company of other dogs and would be so happy to be adopted into a home with another dog or two that he can romp, play, and sleep with. In his excitement on first meeting a new dog, he might be barky and even come across as somewhat assertive, but he truly loves canine companionship and is always friendly and engaging. Dik-dik is normally pretty quiet in the house and does not react to the doorbell, knocking, or strange sounds around the house or yard. He crates beautifully at night and for car rides. Won't you check out this precious boy's photo album at http://imageevent.com/beales/fosters/dikdik? ------------------------------------------------------ IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING DIK-DIK, 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: 17-09-16-00057 (female)|
I spotted this dog in my yard and noticed her nipples are filled with milk so I believe she has puppies. I am feeding her daily. She is very skittish and will not come to me. Under the link that ask for the breed I put rat terrier but I'm not sure if this dog is the rat terrier it doesn't give me a lot of options so hopefully you could tell what breed it is by looking at the picture.

|Animal ID: 1985Babe (female)|
Isn't Babe the cutest little Rattie piglet you ever saw? This sweet-natured 10-lb. 14-year-old is the perfect size for lap-time snuggling. And Babe says that snuggling is just about her favorite thing to do! She also really enjoys exploring the backyard and going for leisurely strolls around the neighborhood. She does great on a leash and is friendly and outgoing to everyone she meets, always hoping for a scratch behind the ears or a belly rub. Babe is house-trained and well-mannered. She finds crates distressing, but she does OK if confined to a room with a baby gate or in an open pen if need be. Babe is looking for a quiet home, perhaps with an older person or a couple who shares her preference for a laid-back, less active lifestyle. Visiting grandchildren are fine because Babe loves children as long as they are gentle with her. Other dogs would be fine as well if they are not large or boisterous. She is even willing to share your couch with a cat! After a recent, very thorough checkup and dental, Babe's vet declared her in good health for her age. This happy, upbeat little dog is looking forward to spending her senior years being loved and doted on. She promises to return the same. Wouldn't you like to make Babe's dreams come true?

|Animal ID: 1831Luci (female)|
Luci is a 15-lb. 4-year-old redhead with a heart of gold. She's the kind of girl who'd like to be an only dog and who thrives at being a companion to her person. And who would that person be? Why, we and Luci think YOU would make her perfect companion--especially if you are a calm single woman or even a couple who enjoys nature and quiet evenings at home. When she first meets you, she may appear a bit shy, but give her a little time to warm up and Luci will be your loyal best friend. Would you like someone to help you when you're picking vegetables from your garden or just enjoying the flowers in your yard? Then Luci is your girl! (And while you're outdoors, Luci will show off her talent at chasing squirrels and keeping those pesky critters up in the trees where they belong.) How about someone to accompany you as you do your daily chores and move from room to room? Yep, Luci specializes in that! She will find a comfy spot wherever you are and settle in, gazing at you with her beautiful, dark adoring eyes. She even enjoys reading or watching TV, as long as you're there. She just wants to be a part of your life. She'll provide you with some entertainment as she plays with her toys and places them in strategic locations for future easy access -please, no neatly organized toy box for this little girl. She will also alert you to the dreaded trash truck stealing all the good stuff placed out by the road or to the neighbors running or bicycling by. And when you tell her, she'll stop barking and stay quiet until it's time to play. Luci walks well on a leash and knows basic commands. She's also house-trained if she's kept on a schedule and not rushed when allowed outside. She has not mastered a dog door and actually prefers that you go outside with her. (That companion thing works both ways, you know.) In fact, loud or strange sounds like fireworks, bouncing basketballs, or yelling children can make her nervous and she'll come to you for protection. Wouldn't you like to be the special someone to offer her reassurance? And doesn't Luci sound like the perfect addition to your life? She's sitting right here, waiting patiently to hear you say those three wonderful words: 'Luci, you're home!' You can see more pictures of Luci at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/luci. ------------------------------------------------------ IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING LUCI, 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: 1860Franklin (male)|
Strikingly handsome Franklin is about 8 years old and a leggy 14 lbs. Before you're smitten by his good looks, however, you should be aware that he has physical and behavioral evidence of a traumatic head injury, so he has a few quirks. He is very sensitive about most touches to his body and about many types of change in his environment. While he hasn't bitten those who are cautious and educated about canine body language, he has bitten other people and dogs, primarily out of fear. Franklin will need to go to a home without children and with some experience with this type of highly sensitive dog. He asks so sweetly and insistently for attention, but it takes a careful, methodical approach before he actually accepts touch of any kind. He is still a fun guy, who enjoys playing with soft toys, tugging a little with his person, or throwing the toys in the air. Franklin currently lives with six other terriers and very much likes his private space away from all, except one who's his favorite--a tiny female Rattie. He would probably be fine as an only dog. Franklin is well house-trained and crate trained, travels fairly well in a car, and walks politely on a harness in low-activity environments. He loves clicker training and is being taught to file his own nails. He sleeps in a crate at night so that he can be comfortable in his personal space bubble. He snuggles under his flannel blankie and sometimes gets so comfy that he doesn't roll out of bed until breakfast is ready. Franklin has a languid, feline grace to his movements and a gentlemanly air about him. Underneath his peculiarities, he is a fine dog, who is looking for a calm home with more than the usual understanding. See more photos of him in his online album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/franklin . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Franklin, 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: 1792Penny (female)|
Meet Penny! Found dirty and terrified by a kindhearted person in the middle of a busy street in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, this sweet 8-year-old brings new meaning to the phrase 'a penny saved...' This Penny is a real keeper!! Not surprisingly, she can be a bit slow to warm up, but if you give her patience and provide reassurance, she'll get comfortable and become a total love. Weighing just 10 lbs., pretty Penny thinks she's all the dog you could want and would be quite happy to be the only dog in a quiet, calm household. And she'll help maintain the serenity of your home with her beautiful manners. She's house-trained, and she comes when called. She never runs, rides beautifully in a car, and walks like a dream on a leash. Would you have room in your heart for this special angel? Penny says if you need any further convincing, just check out her pictures in her online album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/penny . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Penny, please go to New Rattitude's web site at http://www.NewRattitude.org/adopt.htm where there is detailed information and a link to our adoption application.

Tessa is a 10 months old Rat terrier/ small hound mix puppy, weighs 12 lbs. She and 20 others were seized at a hoarding place. We are looking for an experienced dog person who is patient enough to let her settle in. We are also strictly looking for a home where she has another dog friend as she is very depending on a dog to find her comfort zone. Low traffic home with no small children because she would get scared and hide. She is not that type of dog you can take on a leash and walk around the block. Patience and lots of TLC is needed since she has almost feral behavior. Her adoption fee is $ 250 which includes all his vaccines, deworming, heartworm test, spay and micro chip. DO NOT SUBMIT AN APPLICATION ONLINE!!!! Please send us an e mail to receive an application. We are operating on appointments with pre approved adopters only!

|Rescue Me ID: 13-12-20-00057Star (female)|
Star is very shy at the beginning but once she knows you she will overwhelm with cuddles and love. She loves to play with her brothers and sisters. Since she is a mix of Australian Cattle dog and terrier she can be very stubborn, so she needs a strong Hand. Best would be an single, older but active Lady looking for a loving companion that does not have a lot of male foot traffic. She is great with kids but I would prefer older once (over 10). For some unknown reason Star is terrified for man. Star is not very tall about knee high (35-40 lb) and is create trained.

|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.
