|Animal ID: 1294Amaro (female)|
Have gumption, will learn! Two-year old Amaro is intent on catching up on life after spending her first couple years being largely neglected. She is positively hungry for attention, and loves to get pats and cuddles, follow you around, play ball with you, or sit in your lap. Her previous home gave her no basic training, but she is catching on quickly. She has already learned to sit on command and is getting the hang of 'leave it.' She has learned to go into her crate for her meals and sleep in the crate quietly at night, but daytime crating is still frustrating for her. With a set schedule, she is doing great with house training, especially after she discovered the delightful freedom of the doggie door. Now this spunky gal is concentrating on basic manners, like not standing on the coffee table. Her hardest challenges are not jumping up on people (to greet or be noticed by them) or putting her paws on the kitchen counters to check out what delectables could be within reach. But all in good time. She is ready for training sessions whenever you are, and since she is extremely treat-motivated, her progress will be quick. Amaro loves to wrestle and play with other dogs, but she is naturally somewhat assertive and persistent (a couple of her foster sisters would call her 'bossy'), so she is hoping for a home with another playful dog somewhere close to her size (she weighs a lean 21 lbs.) that is confident, sturdy, and doesn't take offense easily. Amaro's leash walking is coming along nicely. For someone wanting a very loyal, loving companion who gets along great with all people, even strangers, Amaro will be a great choice. See more photos of Amaro in her online photo album at www.ImageEvent.com/beales/fosters/Amaro(/a). ================================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Amaro, 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: 1271Willy (male)|
Willy is a handsome 7-year-old Rat Terrier who weighs about 15 lbs. He lost his people and ended up in the shelter where he was so scared and lost. The shelter folks said he did not belong there, and they were sure right! Willy is a little gentleman. He is house trained and mild mannered. He puts up with his kitty foster siblings and does not chase the chickens. He is not a high energy boy and is content to hang out with his person. Willy must have had a pretty rough time on his own but now, after several weeks in a stable foster home, is physically at 100% and though he is still a bit shell-shocked, he is getting more confident emotionally. He has started to play with a string bone and to run around the yard just for fun. He is super protective of his foster mom and will sometimes bark at other people or cats that want to get close to her. Willy would be best in a home that is not too chaotic and loud. He probably would prefer to live with a family that has no other pets. He seems to be fine around kids when he's out and about, but because he still seems very on edge when poked or prodded, he would be best in a home with no young children. Please visit Willy's online photo album at (a href='http:Imageevent.com/newrattitude/willy' target='_blank')www.ImageEvent.com/NewRattitude/Willy(/a).================================================================================================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: 1290Candy (female)|
Candy is a very pretty one year old who weighs about 15 lbs. She is sweet and loving and very grateful for any attention she receives. During the few weeks she has been in foster care, she has been just an affectionate, sometimes shy little girl showing great manners. She comes to you when she is called, is house trained and crate trained, will sleep through the night without any fuss, and does not beg food. She is currently living with other dogs and 4 cats, and gets along great with all of them. She loves to run and play, especially playing tug and chasing after a ball. She loves the water and will readily get in it. She will cuddle up to you on the couch and loves to be petted. Because this very kindhearted, sweet natured girl does have a tiny bit of shyness, she would do best in a home with no children under 8 years old. ================================================================================================ 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.

We hate to be finding another home for this sweet guy.. but we just had a baby and are finding we do not have the time for him that he deserves. He is house/crate trained. Very sweet mannered, laid back and very submissive. He would be a great family dog. We will give his crate he is used to with him.

|Animal ID: 1275L'il Girl (female)|
Pretty, petite L'il Girl is around 6 years old and weighs 12 lbs. She is a snuggler and loves to be close to her people. She is well-mannered, low energy, and has a pretty laid-back personality. She doesn't play with toys--would rather snooze in the sun--or better yet--in your lap. She does fine when she is home alone. L'il Girl is completely house trained and knows how to use a doggie door. She likes to ride in the car and she walks well on a leash. She's very friendly and outgoing with everyone, including children. L'il Girl would prefer to be an only dog. She definitely does not get along with other female dogs. It is unknown how she gets along with cats. This happy, healthy, cuddly girl will steal your heart as well as your lap. Will you give her that chance?

|Animal ID: 1200KeeWee (female)|
Miss KeeWee is 9 pounds of Senior Diva Sweetness who somewhat resembles a Key Deer. At 14 years old, she is a tiny little girl who loves to watch her stories, snuggle into her blankets, and just be cute. She is a little shy at first, but will warm up when given a chance to get to know you. She is not overly active, preferring to just hang out on her blankets on the sofa, watching every move you make while you go about your daily duties and looking lovingly into your eyes whenever you speak to her. KeeWee will go outside with you, enjoying soaking up the rays and smelling the smells, but she doesn't care to spend time outside alone and her stamina is not high, so she will ask to be let back inside after a short time so that she can enjoy her sofa, especially if you will sit near her. KeeWee is house trained if kept to a schedule and does a very cute little bark-and-dance routine to ask to be let outside. She will sleep in a crate, but really prefers to sleep in bed with you. She gets along with other dogs, but because of how small she is she does get upset if she is accidentally bumped by the other dogs and she will let them know that she does not appreciate being bumped. And because she is so little, she will do best in a home without overly active dogs or small children. KeeWee eats a soft diet because she only has one tooth remaining, and she also has a heart murmur. This sweet little gal is seeking a safe and gentle home for her sunset years and she will return your love many times over. ================================================================================================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.

Rat was found living in a cotton field. She is about 12lbs. and around 6 yrs old. She is fearful of new people but warms up with treats. She is to be spayed this week. We believe she is an abandoned breader dog. She enjoys good belly rubs and chew toys. She needs to be loved a lot. She would make someone a great companion.

|Animal ID: 1154Wilson (male)|
Wilson is a wonderful boy who is looking for someone who enjoys playing ball and Frisbee, and he promises to be ready whenever you are. In fact, everyone that he meets is introduced to his ball, and he believes that everyone must enjoy playing with it as much as he does! He has even been known to approach complete strangers in PetSmart with toys and ask them to play. He has a very cute swagger, carrying his ball in his mouth. Wilson weighs a muscular 16 lbs. and is around 8 years old. Wilson has impeccable house manners. He is house trained and will use a doggy door if available or tell you when he needs to go outside if not. He is also crate trained, but he enjoys sleeping on a pillow with a blanket next to your bed or in the living room where he can keep an eye on the door to make sure no one uninvited tries to come in the house. He is not an excessive barker, but will announce people's arrival then ask you if they are okay. He will offer his toy, and if you accept it and play, he will be your best friend. He knows a few obedience commands (sit, down, stay), and he will 'search' for his toys on command. He enjoys going on outings, such as to PetSmart, and enjoys meeting new people, but introductions to strangers should be made slowly and carefully and people should not grab at him. Wilson is not good with young children. He gets along well with other dogs, but does not put up with someone's being pushy, and he will not cohabitate peacefully with a cat. Wilson usually does not get up on furniture unless invited, but he now will sit on the sofa with his foster dad to watch television in the evenings. He is very loving but it does take some time for him to develop trust. Wilson is just an all-around great dog who is wonderfully entertaining and companionable. See more photos of this wonderful fellow at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/wilson. ================================================================================================ 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: 0878Bingo (male)|
Bingo is a feisty 15-lb. Rat Terrier mix who REALLY loves to run and play fetch with his toys. This happy, healthy 10-year-old gentleman will have you laughing at his tail-wagging antics when he takes you for a walk around the neighborhood. But that's as far as his puppy-like foolishness goes. Bingo is well-behaved, completely house trained, and crate trained. He does get a little anxious when left alone for long periods (will cry and bark), so he would really appreciate a doggie sibling or a human that is home most of the day. Bingo has never lived with a cat and he wants to chase those that he has met. He is friendly when meeting people, including children, however, the little ones make him very uncomfortable. He would prefer the children in his new family be age 10 or older. Watch a short video of Bingo at http://youtu.be/WWYnWNaHTiI. Got a spot on your sofa for the perfect rattie sidekick? Bingo says he's the one! ================================================================================================ If you are interested in adopting Bingo, 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: 0485Rosa (female)|
Little 12-lb. Rosa is the cutest little one-eyed dog ever! She is a well-behaved lady of around 6 years old. She is very reliably house trained, crate trained, and has some manners training. She is familiar with clicker training and is an enthusiastic learner who enjoys being shaped for new tricks. Lucky for Rosa, she is perfectly lap-sized since she (i)lives(/i) for laps. If your lap is occupied, she is content with a good chew, kind words, and pets. She is a delightful companion who would be fine in a small house or apartment. Because of her blindness, she is not keen on going for walks, but she gets a kick out of backyard and indoor play. Rosa likes to make you laugh with her bouncy play bows, low-key wrestling, and adorable piglet snorts. She likes to play with male dogs around her size and with kids and other people who can be gentle with her. She does not care for assertive female dogs, however, and it is not recommended that she share space with female dogs who are not of a very soft personality. Cats cause her a bit of excitement, but cats can also easily keep a height distance. Rosa is quite shy, but happily warms up to her favorite kind of people -- gentle, patient folks with yummy treats. Rosa (a.k.a. The Nose) has scenting abilities at the level of a superpower! She loves the Find It game and food puzzles, and would no doubt excel at K9 Nose Work, to which she has been introduced. For more photos and information about Rosa, see her photo album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/rosa. For a cute video of how Rosa asks to play, see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qXE1dUhEVxI. ================================================================================================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: 0549Lisbon (female)|
Dear Mom &/or Dad: Where are you? I'm still waiting for you to adopt me. My foster home is fine but I really want YOU! You understand me. You know how nervous I can get when I think people are going to grab me or try to put blankets on me, and you know to give me a little space when I'm uncomfortable so that I don't have to nip to protect myself. You appreciate my happy, happy dance when I get excited -- like when it is time for dinner or a walk -- and when you get home, I go full-body-wag-crazy for a couple minutes, and you are excited to see me, too, and really feel the love I have for you. I bet you have a spot where the sun pours in and I can bask in warm comfort while you do whatever human things interest you. You know that at 11 lbs. I am just the right size for your lap or sitting right next to you on the sofa, and I won't hog the bed at night. Of course I'm mature enough, at 7 years old, to be reliably house trained, not chew on anything you don't want me to, and not have so much crazy energy that I require a fenced yard. I'll get along with other dogs and cats if you need me to, but quite honestly I'd just as soon not bother. And do I sound cranky if I say that I'm not a fan of little kids? I don't mind their noise... it's their grabby little hands that worry me. Probably like you, I take a daily medication (mine is cheap; is yours?) and have some easy dietary restrictions. Don't we sound like we'd get along really well together? I'm a low-maintenance gal who can be independent when you need me to be, but will turn into a lover when you're looking for some comfort. Please go to my photo album at http://imageevent.com/beales/fosters/lisbon and fall in love with me! I have been waiting for you in foster care for too long!============================================================= If you are interested in adopting Lisbon, 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.
