Animal ID: 2036Chase (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi, I'm Chase! I'm a 2-year-old, 14-lb. Rat Terrier, who is stunningly good-looking and as sweet as can be. I love people--ESPECIALLY kids! In fact, my foster mom says I'm pretty much the perfect family dog. I play a mean game of fetch, and I love being picked up and cuddled too. If you want to play, I want to play! If you want to relax, I'll join you! I'm super smart and would probably excel in obedience training or agility if you're into that sort of thing. I pretty much just want to please. I get along great with my foster family's dogs, so if you already have other pets, I'm down with that. My house manners are great, and I've learned ... (Read More)that the backyard is the place to do my business. I'm really hoping to have a new family for 2018! If your New Year's resolution might be 'Adopt a fine dog like Chase, ' then check out some more pics at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/chase. ------------------------------------------------------ IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING CHASE, 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: 2033Edmi (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Frisky little Edmi so very much wants to be everybody's friend. A Rattie mix just 2 years old, he is naturally curious, alert, and friendly, but a lack of proper socialization in his 'old life,' makes it hard for him to overcome residual anxiety about new people, places, and experiences. Fortunately he gets along great with other dogs and follows their lead, gaining confidence with each new encounter. When he musters enough courage to let you pet him, he does seem to enjoy it quite a bit, so it's undoubtedly only a matter of time before he gets over his skittishness. Edmi likes to sleep in a nice safe crate at night and rides comfortably in ... (Read More)a crate in the car. He does not have the hang of walking on leash yet, but fortunately he weighs only 15 lbs. and does not object to being picked up and carried around. Despite being nervous, Edmi was a very good boy at the vet and was docile and uncomplaining even when being poked and prodded. He also met some little kitties there and treated them with polite friendliness. He will sometimes pick up a toy and play with it tentatively as though he really isn't sure how. His overall house manners are very good and he has never messed with or gotten into anything he shouldn't. With a regular indoor-outdoor routine, he is showing good house-training skills. All in all, this sweet boy just needs an understanding family to help him continue learning and growing in confidence. You can see lots more photos of Edmi in his album at http://imageevent.com/beales/fosters/edmi. ------------------------------------------------------ IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING EDMI, 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: 2011Hallie (female)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Hallie, a 1-year-old Rat Terrier/Wire Fox Terrier mix, who weighs a mere 10 lbs. Trapped by animal control after wandering a South Georgia neighborhood, alone and confused, Hallie turned out to be a real gem once New Rattitude rescued her. This dog has personality plus! She's cuddly, curious, and total terrier! She takes a little time to get to know you, but once she does, she is a love! She adores her people and gets along with other dogs. She hopes to be part of a home where someone is home most of the time and she has another young dog to play and wrestle with. Inquisitive and adventurous, she has been known to dash out the front ... (Read More)door to go exploring. (Since this is likely the very behavior that resulted in her stay at an animal control facility, Hallie's new family will need to be super vigilant about open doors.) This lively little terrier is a 'talker.' You can expect to hear her growling at her toys as she plays with them and shakes the living daylights out of them! Hallie is reliably house-trained except when it's very cold or rainy outside and will do best if you go outside with her so she knows she isn't alone. She's also quite well mannered and won't jump on your sofas or beds. Take a look at more pics of Hallie in her online album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/hallie, and you'll know why we think she's a terrier-ific gal. ------------------------------------------------------ IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING HALLIE, 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)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Spend a few minutes gazing into Rocky's soulful eyes, and you'll realize that he is saying, 'Hey, human, do you know how much I love being here with you?' This 18-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 neighborhood walks 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, and he knows how to use a dog door. Rocky is even ... (Read More)trustworthy enough to roam free in the house when his foster mom is at work. 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: 1831Luci (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Luci is a 5-year-old redhead with a heart of gold, but she is feeling blue because she is still waiting for an adoptive home. She doesn't ask much'| just a calm household in a quiet neighborhood, with a person or couple who wants to be adored by a gentle, well-behaved little gal. Luci walks well on a leash, is crate trained, and knows basic commands. She's also house-trained if she's kept on a schedule and not rushed when taken outside. She prefers that you go outside with her since she may need to run to you for protection if she hears scary noises (like garbage trucks, fireworks, power tools, yelling children, or strange dogs barking). ... (Read More)When she is feeling at ease, Luci is frisky and playful and enjoys chasing squirrels in the yard or 'Rattie-shaking' her stuffed toys. Because she had some bad experiences in her past with being bullied by other dogs, she would much prefer to live as an only dog, although she will eventually warm up to another small, gentle dog if the introductions are done very slowly. Luci is friendly when she meets new people and is very affectionate with those she knows well. She thrives at being a companion and nothing makes her happier than when it's time for you to settle in on the sofa for some snuggle time. Currently Luci weighs a little over 18 lbs., but she's working on dropping some weight and getting down under 16 lbs. You can see lots more photos of her in her online album at http://imageevent.com/beales/fosters/luci. ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Luci, 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.

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

    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.
