|Rescue Me ID: 17-06-21-00321SARGE (male)|
WAGS RESCUE welcomes SARGE))) This 2 yr old Rat Terier will fit in just about any circumstances. He likes to play but also loves a lap. He is now neutered, UTD on shots and also HW negative. He is only 14.5 lbs and full of love for his new family. He was picked up with a female who was in heat and taken to the shelter. I knew we could not leave him theri to his own demise. NOT neutering your pet can cause them to wander quite the distance .... He will not have those opportunities again. If he is your kind of fun pooch, but like lazy too, then this is it. Apply at wags-rescue.org

|Rescue Me ID: 17-06-19-00250ranger (male)|
WAGS Rescue is happy to welcome 18 week old Ranger. We believe Ranger is a Rat Terrier/Australian Terrier mix. Ranger almost did not come into our Rescue, I am sure glad he did! He was transferred to WAGS from a local shelter that was at max capacity. Ranger is such a sweet, silly boy. He LOVES to play fetch AND he brings it back. Ranger is very smart which makes him highly trainable! He appears to have an interest in the pool so we will know soon if he likes to swim. Ranger will make a lovely addition to a loving family. He is UTD on core vaccines, neutered, micro-chipped, and started on flea and heartworm prevention. If you would like to be considered for adoption of Ranger please go to our website and fill out our adoption application at:wags-rescue.org (Less)

|Animal ID: 1933Suni (female)|
Easygoing Suni is a friendly gal, who is a beautiful 'blue tri' Rattie, meaning that her dark areas are a steel gray color rather than black. Suni is a great, low-maintenance companion with just the right balance between independence and attachment. She is pretty self-sufficient (not too clingy or always underfoot) but is always ready to interact with you whenever you send those cues. During the day, she will snooze comfortably on the couch, making herself available for you whenever you need a little doggy lovin'. At night, she will put herself to bed in her crate, if that is your preference, or she will happily share your bed if you're the snuggling type. Going for a ride? Just open the car door, and she will eagerly jump right in, settling down to ride quietly in her crate. Ready for a walk? Suni will dance excitedly to show you how glad she is to accompany you. She is reliably house-trained and has nice indoor manners. Suni had lived her whole life (7 years) with one family until she landed in shelter quarantine after a provoked bite incident with an unsupervised child, and the family decided not to reclaim her. She was very confused and nervous during her first days in foster care, but this resilient little lady soon settled in and began to show her gentle, playful, affectionate nature. At 15 lbs., Suni fits comfortably on your lap when she nimbly jumps onto the sofa beside you. She gets along great with the other dogs in the home and has learned to play gleefully with her younger foster sister. Please check out all the photos in her album at http://imageevent.com/beales/fosters/suni and see if you don't think she would bring joy to your household. ------------------------------------------------------ IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING THIS DOG, 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: 1935Jasper (male)|
Meet Jasper--what a looker, eh? This handsome youngster is barely a year old and weighs 24 lbs. Jasper is just bursting with boisterous, youthful energy and will require ample daily exercise, both mental and physical, to ward off the trouble a bored pup can get into. His favorite game is fetch, and he also loves to go for a walk or run on leash. Jasper is house-trained and very quickly learned to stay quietly in his crate when left alone. He may bark or whine for attention, though, if you are in the same room. As far as other house manners are concerned, Jasper is a work in progress like most terrier pups. He is a strong chewer and still learning what is appropriate and what is off-limits. He's a smart boy, though, and eager to learn. He is very food-motivated and already knows basic commands and would be easy to teach tricks. With his natural athleticism, he would also do well in agility or other dog sports. Jasper is still learning his place when it comes to other dogs and will need more positive socialization experience. Sometimes he's a 'tough guy,' especially if the other dog is on the other side of the fence. Sometimes he is shy. When he meets another dog on a walk, however, he generally gets very excited and wants to play. Jasper is friendly and outgoing toward new people. He has not been around children, but due to his larger size and the fact that he can play a little rough and be mouthy, he would do better in a home with no children or older children only. (He's also had no experience with cats.) Jasper would love to have an active family or individual who is willing to give him the attention he needs and to polish off his training. This happy-go-lucky guy with so much potential is just waiting for the chance to steal your heart. See more photos of Jasper in his online album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/jasper. ------------------------------------------------------ IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING JASPER, 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: 1901Vivianne (female)|
Anybody ready to be the object of canine adoration and affection? Then let us introduce you to Vivianne! Rescued from a Georgia shelter, this special little girl is a calm, quiet Rat Terrier/Chihuahua/Dachshund mix, who is about 2 to 3 years old and weighs a mere 8 lbs. Vivianne gets along well with other dogs and mostly ignores cats unless they run, in which case she'll consider herself to have been invited to chase. But more than anything, Vivianne excels at being a one-person dog, and once she chooses you, she'll stick to you like Velcro, never wandering more than a few feet away. She loves snuggling, lap time, and going wherever her person goes. She can belong to a household with more than one human, as long as the other members won't feel slighted by her devotion to her favorite, but she would be the absolute perfect companion to a single adult who is home most of the day. When Vivianne first came into rescue, she had some hair loss, which the vet attributed to seasonal allergies. High quality food has helped, and with continuing good nutrition and additional time, her hair should all grow back. Vivianne's working on her house-training and does fine as long as she's kept on a schedule. She can still make some mistakes if it's storming outside and she hurries back in before finishing her business. This adorable sweetheart yearns for a lifelong companion and best friend--a person to call her very own. Let Vivi make YOU the center of her world. To see more of Vivianne, you can visit her online album at http://ImageEvent.com/newrattitude/vivianne. ------------------------------------------------------ IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING VIVIANNE, 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: 17-06-11-00124Lloyd (male)|
This fantastic rat terrier mix is his happiest when he is with a person, big person, little person he doesn't care. He just loves attention. Does well on a leash and tries really hard to be housebroken. Wouldn't take long for him to master that with a routine. He has not yet been neutered but he will be fixed and vaccinated before adoption. If you have room for this little guy let us know.

|Rescue Me ID: 17-06-08-00254Pippy (female)|
Rescue welcomes Pippy! She is a 1-2 year old Rat Terrier mix. Pippy came to us very pregnant, having been dumped on a back country road in Brantley county. Her babies were born safe in a foster home and they have now found their forever homes. It's now Pippy's turn to shine. This adorable girl is house trained, crate trained, spayed, UTD on her shots and being treated for mild case of heart worms. She gets along well with other small dogs, but no cats or small children please. Pippy also sees herself as a formidable apponent to large dogs as most ratties do. She would work best in a home with other small dogs, or as a sole companion, and with children over 6 years of age. To apply to adopt, go to brantleyanimalrescuecoalition.weebly.com (Less)

Hi, my name is Sammie. My rescue mom tells me I am absolute perfection. I am the sweetest thing and love to give kisses. My happy face will bright up your day. I was rescued from a high kill shelter moments before I was killed for space. I am very friendly and dog friendly. I would do great with other dogs and kids. I look a lot bigger in my pictures than I really am. I am crate trained and house trained. I don't chew on anything either. I can't wait until I find my forever home that I am so desperately waiting for.

I need to re-home my adorable chihuahua/terrier mix, Jinx. She is approx 1.5 yrs old, UTD on shots, spayed, and crate trained. She is around 15-20lbs.

|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.

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!

|Animal ID: 1540Perrito (male)|
You've been looking for a cute guy who will follow you anywhere and has matured into a fine domestic fellow. Well, here I am--all 8 good-looking lbs. of me, waiting for your call. My Teddy Roosevelt Terrier (Type B Rat Terrier) legs are pretty short, but I can still come running for you, for food, or for toys. I'm not interested in running for strangers at the door and barking like a fool because I have more manners than that. Over my 10 years on this earth, I've learned what's important in life: hanging out with you on short walks or just chilling, getting ear and back scratches (only from people I know), and playing a rousing game of ball that ends with you distracting me with food just to get me to stop playing. And naps! Yes, I've become quite the connoisseur of naps. And I don't mean to brag, but I'm a tough guy who's in a pretty good state of health considering that my pancreas doesn't work so well. I just need a couple of common, inexpensive medications and enzymes in my raw food to keep me running around the yard and following you around the house. And speaking of yards, I'd appreciate being able to get to one quickly and easily when nature calls, but if you need to go out, just leave me with some pee pads in a tiled area and I'll oblige. I'm OK with dogs and cats, though sometimes I get cranky if they touch me or my stuff. (My foster mom told me to let you know that I'm best with calm, confident dogs who won't let me push them around.) I'm also okay with adult people, but not so much with kids, who might to touch me. Yeah, I've got this thing about being poked and prodded. I have bitten in the past, and I wear a basket muzzle to the vet, who's the ultimate poker and prodder. Everyone laughs at my quirks and says I'm a character and a half. As long as I get to sleep near you in a cushy crate, I'm fine with being called your doggy entertainment. In fact, call me anything you want; just don't call me late to dinner! If you can't get enough of my handsome profile, you may see more photos and videos at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/perrito . You can watch me collect bottles and do my part for the environment! ========================================================================================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.

|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. If you are interested in Star please contact me at Siems@bellsouth.net or call 770-714-2880 (Less)

|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.
