Animal ID: 1493Maple (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

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

    A calm, affectionate companion, Maple is slowed down a little by excess weight, but she otherwise is quite peppy. She has already made a lot of progress in getting her weight down to a healthy level and now, at 21 lbs., she has just a few more pounds to go. Maple is about 8 years old, and with her maturity comes great house manners and reliable house training. She will stand still for you to attach a leash, and if you open the car door she will jump in and go right into her crate. She gets along very well with other dogs except when food is involved, so she does best eating separately. She will greet strangers with friendliness and doesn't ... (Read More)mind a bit when they want to pat her. She is a happy, well-behaved gal with an easy-going nature who makes a wonderful, huggable companion. See more photos of Maple in her online album at http://imageevent.com/beales/fosters/maple. ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Maple, 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: 1494Juniper (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

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

    Spunky, playful, affectionate, and altogether adorable...that's Juniper! She is a 12-lb. bundle of sweetness who is about 2-3 years old. After being 'sprung' from the shelter, she came to her new foster home and immediately fit right in with no transition issues. Her good nature is especially admirable because she clearly has had some major trauma in her life, attested to by large scars on her back and up her neck. While they don't bother her at all, the hair loss in those areas is likely permanent. But she doesn't care a bit, and she will eagerly jump into your lap for pats and snuggles. Juniper is just exactly what a young rattie should ... (Read More)be: instantly playful when toys come out, active and eager to follow wherever you choose to go, ready for a walk whenever you are, and content to cuddle quietly next to you when you want to rest. If you open the car door, she will jump in and go right into her crate for the ride. She is reliably house trained and sleeps quietly at night either in her crate or on a dog bed beside your bed. She gets along very well with other dogs and greets strangers politely with no hesitation. How could this little cutie be any more perfect? See more photos of her and a couple videos in her album at http://imageevent.com/beales/fosters/juniper . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Juniper, 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.

    He is an extremely sweet dog and great with my cat, dog, and child, but I just cannot keep him any longer. He has had blood work which shows he is in great health and is current on all of his shots. He had a shot for heart worm prevention that still has 4 more months and has flea prevention for to more months. My vet estimated that he is between 12 and 16 months old.

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Howdy, folks! 'Sparky the Fire Dog' here. I was adopted from the kill shelter with my scruffy Jack Russell sister Roxy (who has already been adopted), then returned for a reason the people here don't know why. They just knew what that meant for me: I would be redlined and put down immediately. I was so sweet and gentle and wonderful and '| hey '| how could I not go on to touch everyone's hearts? Nope, I couldn't. I'm a very young (only about a year or two) boy who is very submissive. So submissive that I really didn't want to stand up for photos. I was much more comfortable being in Mama Donna's arms and/or rolling over for belly ... (Read More)scratches. I also like to dig. We're going to work on my insecurities and turn me into a confident, young man. If you're interested in doing so for or with us, we would love that, too! I'm neutered and have had all my shots, but my previous family didn't think heartworm testing was important. Yeah, don't get us started on that. I still need to be tested for that, but am ready to go otherwise. (Less)

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?

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!

Like most of us, she'll decide in the first 5 minutes of meeting them whether she likes them or not. She is territorial so we always hold her when people first visit, and then a little ways into the visit you can put her down. she doesn't like thunder or rain, and will try to hide under you or your blanket during a storm. she is very loyal when she loves you and will defend you til the end. She's extremely smart and attuned to vocal inflections and will hesitate to come when called if you sound angry. is ... (Read More)a very fast runner. We've clocked her at 22 mph!

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 Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Laurel is a gentle, loyal dog who is absolutely devoted to her chosen person. She is polite but aloof with strangers she meets while out on walks, but an excellent watchdog in her own home -- always alertly on guard to protect her family and territory from intruders by barking at them until she is convinced that they are acceptable. Aside from her barking when something is amiss, you hardly know that she is there because she is pretty independent and not right underfoot all the time. She appreciates pats and scratches, and will sometimes get on her family's laps for some one-on-one time, but she is not demanding for attention nor is she big ... (Read More)on tight cuddling. Her activity level is moderate, with occasional bursts of playfulness but mostly she is just relaxed and regally alert. Laurel has excellent house manners and is perfectly house trained. She knows how to use a doggie door or will 'hold it' if one is not available. Laurel is about 5-6 years old and weighs 17 lbs. She is very food motivated and her patient, pleading eyes can be quite persuasive! She mostly does great with other dogs, either ignoring them or playing with them, depending on the other dog's personality. She meets new dogs well but noisily if they are in 'her' house. She can be bossy, though, if her personal space is invaded by another dog, especially at dinner time, and she often tries to act as Play Police when the other dogs get rowdy, so she would do best either as an only dog or with one easy-going companion. 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 doesn't appear to be a fan of cats, as she will lunge at those she spies on her walks. Based on her mannerisms, personality traits, and appearance, we believe that Laurel is a Schipperke-Rat Terrier mix, but of course she does not have an ID to prove this. Please visit Laurel's on-line album to see more photos of this ultra easy-to-care-for gal: 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.

Animal ID: 1370Barnabus (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

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

    Barnabus, a 7.5-lb., 2-1/2-year-old fellow, has overcome a tough start in life--one which included being housed outside in the cold at a shelter. With patient, gentle love from his foster family, he has transformed himself from terrified to terrific! Now, having learned to give and receive affection from those he trusts, he loves to have his face scratched and his whole body rubbed. He will stand on his foster parents' laps and give gentle kisses. He is making progress at allowing himself to be picked up, and when he is praised, his short tail will just flutter with joy! He is still a 'slow-go' at first with strangers but does warm up when ... (Read More)he sees that his family is OK with the guests. He has been good around children ages 3-9 who have visited, but he needs to be monitored around the littlest ones. He will give them kisses and enjoy their company much of the time but will give a growl when he has had enough. Except for being reluctant to share his favorite toys, Barnabus gets along well with other dogs and looks to the other dogs in the household to learn his new routines, so it would be fine if his adoptive family had another dog, as long as it is not a rowdy puppy. And while he hasn't been around cats, he doesn't seem to be strongly prey driven, so he would probably get along with them. Barney is crate trained, and while crated during the day when his foster parents are at work, he does not potty in his crate. He is house trained for the most part and quietly announces his need by standing near the door to be let out. However, not being a fan of inclement weather, Barney will sometimes choose indoor potties just to avoid going out in the rain. Probably as a result of his early experiences with animal control, he has remained steadfastly fearful of leashes and because of this, he will need a fenced yard. He also does not like to go to the vet's office, but he's working with a professional trainer to overcome both fears. With his fairly low energy level, Barnabus is content to curl up on the couch next to you or to play gently, wiggle-waggling his tail as fast as a helicopter. He loves to explore outdoors and just hang out on his own. In a home with that special someone who has lots of love and patience, this youngster will continue to progress and gain confidence. Check out some pictures of Barney during training at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/barnabus . =======================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Barnabus, 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 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. Willy has been looking for his people for a long time. When he finds you (and you find him), he will look up at you with his warm wise eyes, and you will feel that deep connection that says, 'Thank you for finding me. It's good to be home.'

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.
