Animal ID: 1814Cher (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Exuberant Cher is full of affection. She loves attention and being near her humans, and she'll follow right with you as you go about the house. Cher weighs 15 lbs. and is probably 3 or 4 years old (no more than 5, says her vet). In her foster home, she loves to play with her foster brothers, chasing and wrestling with them or just hanging out together. She did not do so well with the canine residents in a former home, however, for unknown reasons. So new doggy introductions need to be slow and deliberate to give her time to feel comfortable and ensure that all will be congenial. Based on how she will tear across the yard to chase squirrels, ... (Read More)it is doubtful that she would do well with cats. Cher doesn't seem to have learned much in her former life before coming to rescue, so she is now being introduced to all kinds of new things like walking on leash, staying calm when her people leave the home, sleeping quietly in a crate at night, coming when called, and responding to other verbal cues. Since she is one of those dogs who makes good eye contact and can really focus her attention on you, she is making good progress quickly. She has already mastered the dog door and uses it to take herself inside and out when she needs. With the dog door and a set potty schedule, her house training has been good. Her best claim to fame, though, is the warm greeting she gives you when she is happy to see you, wriggling most adorably, with her whole body quivering in excitement and happiness and her little tail wagging so quickly that it is just a flickering blur. Check out more photos of lovable Cher in her photo album at http://imageevent.com/beales/fosters/cher . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Cher, 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.

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

    Brook is a 2-3 year old rat terrier dachshund. She is about 15 - 17 pounds and a super sweet and affectionate girl. She should be named Shadow as she likes to stay close to her peeps. This smart little girl knows where the dog door is and has took herself out to the bathroom from the get go. She had 6 little puppies as well and has been a fantastic mama. She also took in 3 little chiweenie puppies whose siblings and mom died a couple of weeks earlier from parvo. This girl just took all the babies in and cared for them. She seems to know that you have to stick together to survive. She also knows where the softest spot on the bed is as ... (Read More)well.

Animal ID: 1816Hopi (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Young Adult

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

    Not even triple-chocolate fudge cake could be sweeter than Hopi! This adorable 1-year-old is friendly, affectionate, and well-behaved. Hopi LOVES to play with toys, especially squeaky ones, and he will streak off to chase a tennis ball when you throw it--and usually bring it right back for another throw. He is such a happy and entertaining little guy. He gets along great with other dogs, playing joyfully with the young, active ones and respecting the older, grumpy ones. He makes immediate friends with new humans and loves to cuddle and interact. He got a quick introduction to a cat at the vet clinic and seemed eager to play, so he might be ... (Read More)too much for a shy cat but would probably be a good brother to a confident feline. Hopi is house trained with a schedule and has learned how to use a dog door. His house manners have been wonderful; he couldn't be any better behaved. He is always ready for an adventure on leash but does need work on walking straight and steady. At just under 12 lbs., this athletic, sturdy fellow is a great size for any household. See lots more pictures of handsome Hopi in his album at http://imageevent.com/beales/fosters/hopi . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Hopi, 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

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Marlin Chihuahua/Rat Terrier Mix Estimated DOB: 07/18/2011 Male Adoption Fee: $175 Hi! My name is Marlin.Marlins might be the king of fish, but I'm a small fry kind of guy, all I want is a lap to rest in and a soft squishy bed. I can be a little shy at first, but when you pet me I lean my head into your hand. I have been fully vetted, vaccinated, neutered, and microchipped. I am heart worm positive and looking for a foster family to help me through treatment. I would especially love a 'foster to adopt' home! Don't worry, the Humane Society of Morgan County will cover the cost of my treatment, I'd just like a home to recoup in.

Animal ID: 1817Scooter (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Young Adult

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

    Happy-go-lucky is Scooter's middle name! This super affectionate pup greets every new day with eager enthusiasm. He loves to play, play, play'|with toys, with people, and with other dogs. Tug-of-war, wrestle, chase, and fetch are his favorite games. Scooter weighs a lean 11 lbs., but since he is just 8 months old, he might add another pound or two before he gets to his full adult size. He is super friendly with people, including children, but since he is bouncy in his eagerness, he could easily knock over a toddler accidentally. His house training has been very good, and he learned to use the doggie door within just a few minutes. He is ... (Read More)also learning the 'sit' command and looks you right in the face when you are talking to him, as though he is really trying to understand what you're saying. He has also begun leash and crate training. Scooter gets along wonderfully with the other dogs in his foster home, but his persistent desire to play with them can be annoying to older or irritable dogs. He loves to get in your lap and snuggle, and when he naps on the couch, this goofy fellow will often fall asleep on his back with his legs sticking up in the air! Scooter is ready for an active adoptive home that will appreciate his adorable puppy antics. Check out more photos of him in his album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/scooter . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Scooter, 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: 1794Alex (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Alex is the sweetest, cutest, and funniest 14-month-old pup you'll ever meet! He's also loving, loyal, and eager to learn. With his rounded nose and those oversized ears that fall into the most delightful positions (see photos), 16-lb. Alex may have a few beagle genes, though he doesn't seem to have inherited the beagle's propensity to bark. Whatever his lineage, this smart boy is doing well at learning various commands, walking on leash, and potty training with regular opportunities to go outside, where he always 'does his duty' in the same spot. You'll laugh when you see Alex run after a toy. He slides, crashes, and does what it takes to ... (Read More)get that toy, but best of all, he brings it back for more! This affectionate pup would love to have someone at home most of the day to play with him, keep him company, and give him belly rubs. In the evening, he'll be content to snuggle next to you on the couch while you watch TV. Alex's perfect home would be one with a big fenced yard where he can run around and play, but he won't stay out there long on his own because he'd rather be with you. He will go into a crate if you have to leave the house, but at night he'll sleep quietly in his bed near your own. If you need any further convincing that you were meant to be Alex's special someone, hop on over to his online album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/Alex to see more photos and videos of this handsome, happy boy. ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Alex, 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.

I can be a little shy around new people at first, but once I know you, I love you. I think once you know me you'll love me too.

I don't know exactly what that means, but I know I've got a second chance to find a family to love me forever. Is it you?

Animal ID: 1661Noella (female)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Noella is a young, playful Rat Terrier-hound mix about 3 years old. The photos of this tall, beautiful lady show her at 32 lbs., but she's slimming down to a healthier weight of around 27 lbs. Fun is Noella's formula for life, and she'll draw you in with her big smile and inviting play bow for a romp in the yard, toy chasing, or even a gentle wrestle. Sweetly affectionate, she will be happy to join you for a quiet rest, too. Learning is fun when it's a rewarding game, and Noella really enjoys positive reinforcement training. She is reliably house trained, has some lovely house manners, and is learning to control her natural exuberance so she ... (Read More)can be even more polite in the house. She gets along well with the familiar dogs who live with her. When home alone, she can be trusted loose in the house if your counters are clear of food or she can settle into a comfortable crate. She much prefers to sleep in bed with her person as she doesn't like to be shut away from you when you're home. She can probably learn to sleep in her own bed near yours. She is a calm car traveler and she likes to use her improving leash skills on long walks in a harness. As adorable as she is, Noella does have some behavior challenges. A fenced yard is required since she is afraid of unfamiliar people and dogs and can bark and/or lunge in fear while on leash. She has bitten strangers who came into her home. She has safely and lovingly shared a home with children, but currently cannot be trusted around unfamiliar children. She is being worked with on these issues, and New Rattitude offers behavior modification coaching and support to adopters. Despite her fear issues, Noella is a doll at home with her people, and she knows how to love big and have fun. See more photos at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/noella . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Noella, 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: 1737Chippewa (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Perky, good natured, and extremely loyal...that's 6- to 7-year-old Chippewa! This 7-lb. Chihuahua-Rat Terrier mix gets along wonderfully with everyone--adults, children, other dogs, and even cats. He has terrific house manners, is fully house trained, and never gets into any trouble. Chip barks occasionally, but for the most part is a quiet and very mellow fellow, although he does go into happy dance mode in the morning when it is time to get up and breakfast is on the horizon. His calm, patient approach to life is no doubt largely due to his eye problems. Chip has dry eyes, medically known as keratoconjunctivitis sicca. Since his rescue in ... (Read More)April, he has been on many eye meds in an attempt to improve his condition. After four months of cyclosporine to try to regenerate tear production, with no measurable results yet, we are losing hope that his eyes will ever begin tearing on their own, so he is almost certainly going to need eye lubrication drops/gel multiple times a day for the rest of his life. This means he needs an adoptive home where he isn't regularly left alone during the day for more than a few hours at a time. Fortunately this easygoing guy makes the process a piece of cake, letting you pick him up and put in his drops without any struggling or resistance. In fact he seems to understand that this is for his benefit, and he will often offer you a little kiss when you are done. His vision impairment does make it a little challenging to navigate new environments, but he is so eager and willing to give it a try, and in familiar territory, he gets around with no problems (even going up and down staircases). On a recent camping trip, Chip did great on the hikes, taking on steep, rocky trails with a sense of adventure. At home he does not get on furniture, although he does love to lie beside you on the couch or sleep in bed with you if you will lift him up. To see more photos of this darling low-key boy, please visit his online album at http://imageevent.com/beales/fosters/chippewa . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Chippewa, 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: 1352BlueBelle (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Beautiful BlueBelle is a unique lady looking for a very special family. She was born into puppy mill conditions and lived almost four years birthing puppies in a deprived environment. She is around 5 years old and a small 12 lbs. BlueBelle was classified as semiferal and overcame many challenges to learn to live in a home and have minimal interactions with humans. She is still learning and needs a family who understands how best to gently, patiently help her adapt. BlueBelle has lived peacefully with a cat and lives with family dogs and a changing roster of foster dogs. She can be adamant about keeping her space to herself around other dogs ... (Read More)and can also snuggle or act playful with those same dogs when she's in the mood. She will need at least one dog companion to help her feel at home and show her the doggie routine. She is house trained in her current environment. She would appreciate an adult-only home that tends to be calm and can let her safely grow at her own pace. To give you an idea of her pace, it took 18 months for BlueBelle to ask to be petted. She still has many fears and a phobia of thunder. She does not yet walk on leash. Her exercise currently consists of walking a large yard, jumping and racing around the house in anticipation of a meal, and some rehab exercises. BlueBelle is finishing rehabilitation for a healed back issue and for luxating patellae ('dislocating knees,' common in small dogs). If you are looking for a sweet dog to love and nurture while carefully helping to widen her world, BlueBelle is your girl.

    We can't for the life of us figure out why this adorable sweetheart has not been adopted. Gaia is such inspiration! You could call her the 'Comeback Kid.' This amazing 14-lb. 8-year-old came to rescue with partially paralyzed legs, but today she lives a nearly normal life thanks to having had intensive physical therapy and acupuncture. She can walk, run, and even climb shallow stairs, and she LOVES to play with other dogs. A healthful diet that includes wet food, broth, and a cranberry supplement has enabled her to practically eliminate the urinary tract infections that used to bother her, as well as the need to wear a nighttime diaper. How ... (Read More)proud she will be to show you how she does just about everything other dogs do! So call her the Comeback Kid, the Can-do Canine. Call her anything; just call her, as in 'Come, Gaia, you're home!' and expect to be showered with inspiration (and snuggles and kisses).========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Gaia, 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    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Everyone calls me 'tiny' and 'cute,' and that's fine because I am certainly cute. But don't be fooled by my short stature and weight of just 8.5 lbs. Big personalities come in small packages. Firecrackers are tiny, you know what I'm saying? I'm Perrito, a Teddy Roosevelt, or Type B, Rat Terrier. At a spry 9 years old, I am one tough boy. I like to play a rousing game of ball, take a running slide into the carpet shoulder first for a good roll. If I get knocked down, I get right back up, shake it off, and move forward. I'm usually following my person closely in case something exciting happens. Neighborhood walks are the best, and I take them ... (Read More)terrier style--forward, double time, and with good leash manners! I'm a dutiful recycler and pick up plastic bottles along the way. (See me in action here: http://www.imageevent.com/newrattitude/perrito .) Positive reinforcement training is my favorite because it means food! Praise! Back rubs! I also like to get a laugh by wagging my short, crooked tail. Yes, I use my adorableness to my advantage. I like all kinds of adult people, but I need to know you before I let you touch me. My sensitivity to touch and unpredictable movement is why I'm not a good match for preteen kids. Getting along with dogs is something I've learned, but sometimes I forget when food is involved. Sometimes I can get into a single-minded behavior groove and need help to get out, so I'm on an inexpensive medication that helps me think better, and I've had training to give me other things to do besides get stuck in compulsions. I also take some supplements with my special food to keep my chronic pancreatitis in check, and I'm doing great on them. I'm house trained if I'm reminded to go outside, and I'm paper trained. I sleep in a crate at night and can be left in a safe area when I'm alone in the house. It's possible for me to be adopted far away from my foster home, but if you're within easy driving distance of Athens, Georgia, you can meet my adorable furry self and also get all kinds of help with my transition. It's really important to me that my next home is finally a true forever home with people to call my very own. Yep, even a tough fella like me has a heart hankering for love. ========================================================================================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.

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.

    A single Rat Terrier can kill thousands of rodents in just a few hours. Teddy Roosevelt named the Rat Terrier breed. Rat Terriers come in several color variations, but the first Rat Terriers were always black and tan. Rat Terriers are often mistaken for Jack Russells.
